Running Oracle stored procedures from SQL server 2005

  • Hello,

    I am new to T-SQL, written only couple of small ones. Does SQL server 2005 provide capability to run Oracle stored procedures. I already have a linked server established for Oracle.

    I have several oracle stored procedures that :

    a) Accept multiple input parameters and return multiple out parameters.

    b) Accept multiple input parameters and return a REF CURSOR as out parameter.

    If you have any sample code, can you please post it here along with any suggestions. I researched, but there seems to be no solution, especially for REF CURSOR. Much appreciate it.



  • I found a way for ref cursors, here is the solution:

    What you will need

    1) Little bit of Oracle DBA assistance may be needed

    2) VS studio would help in creating C# class and deploying

    3) Ability to create Oracle packages

    4) Ability to create SQL Server packages

    5) SQL Server DBA assistance for configuring and approval

    6) Follow steps step1-step5.

    //--step1----------------------------- create Oracle pkg-------------------------------------------

    CREATE or REPLACE PACKAGE m04_get_pgm_info_pkg AS

    TYPE tpk_return_refcur IS REF CURSOR;

    PROCEDURE m04_get_pgm_info (

    pi_subj1 IN VARCHAR2, pi_subj2 IN VARCHAR2, pi_subj3 IN VARCHAR2, pi_subj4 IN VARCHAR2

    ,pi_subj5 IN VARCHAR2, pi_subj6 IN VARCHAR2, pi_subj7 IN VARCHAR2, pi_subj8 IN VARCHAR2

    ,pi_subj9 IN VARCHAR2, pi_subj10 IN VARCHAR2, pi_subj11 IN VARCHAR2, pi_subj12 IN VARCHAR2

    ,po_return_refcur IN OUT tpk_return_refcur


    END m04_get_pgm_info_pkg;

    //--step2----------------------------- create Oracle pkg body--------------------------------------

    //--note this procedure returns 3 rows of a single columned string

    CREATE or REPLACE PACKAGE BODY m04_get_pgm_info_pkg AS

    PROCEDURE m04_get_pgm_info (

    pi_subj1 IN VARCHAR2, pi_subj2 IN VARCHAR2, pi_subj3 IN VARCHAR2, pi_subj4 IN VARCHAR2

    ,pi_subj5 IN VARCHAR2, pi_subj6 IN VARCHAR2, pi_subj7 IN VARCHAR2, pi_subj8 IN VARCHAR2

    ,pi_subj9 IN VARCHAR2, pi_subj10 IN VARCHAR2, pi_subj11 IN VARCHAR2, pi_subj12 IN VARCHAR2

    ,po_return_refcur IN OUT tpk_return_refcur

    ) IS





    OPEN po_return_refcur FOR

    select 'RESULTS'

    from dual

    union all

    select '-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------'

    from dual

    union all

    select 'Ran Successfully; number of rows/records created=' || count(*)

    from myschema.m04_pat_prog;

    END m04_get_pgm_info;

    END m04_get_pgm_info_pkg;


    //--step3-------------------------- create C# Class-------------------------------------------------

    //create a SqlServerProject2.dll using below class via Visual Stuido, by deploying it.

    //change TNSNAME,USERID,PASSWORD to appropriate values in the connection string

    //note: the class name is “StoredProcedures2”, it has a “s”, where as the method does not.

    SqlDataRecord record = new SqlDataRecord(

    new SqlMetaData("Rownumb", SqlDbType.Int),

    new SqlMetaData("Symb", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 10),

    new SqlMetaData("Msg", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 250));

    int x = 0;

    // output the results and close the connection.

    while (dr.Read())



    for (int i = 0; i < dr.FieldCount; i++)


    // Set values for each column in the row.

    record.SetInt32(0, x);

    record.SetString(1, ">->");

    record.SetString(2, dr.ToString());


    // Send the row back to the client.




    // Mark the end of the result-set.




    //--step4---------- create SQL Server stored procedure and configure ------------------------------

    SELECT name, database_id, is_trustworthy_on FROM sys.databases -- shows trustworty on/off

    alter database yourSQLDB set trustworthy on

    alter authorization on database ::yourSQLDB to sa

    --enable clr integration using Surface Area Configuration tool or do the following then

    --make sure you reconfigure as follows

    --EXEC sp_configure 'clr enabled' , '1'



    –-drop only if recreating or may be you can use ALTER Assembly instead

    --drop Assembly StoredProcedures2Assembly;

    create Assembly StoredProcedures2Assembly

    From '\\mydirectory\SqlServerProject2\SqlServerProject2\obj\Debug\SqlServerProject2.dll'

    with permission_set=unsafe

    drop proc StoredProcedure2Proc

    create proc StoredProcedure2Proc

    ,@subj11=' ',@subj12=' '

    Results from the above procedure when run in SQL Server management Studio looks like this (note-there are 3 columns here a) Rownumb b) Symb c) Msg. Due to cut & paste into this forum, lost positionality. pl/sql stored procedure returned what is shown in column “Msg”) :




    3>->Ran Successfully; number of rows/records created=13898
