PLSQL Unit Testing using Oracle SQL Developer with REF CURSOR issue

994735 Newbie
Currently Being Moderated
Here is a very simple procedure that i am using for testing Ref cursor with Oracle SQL Developer
CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE UNIT_TEST_REPOS.get_emp_rs (p_employee_id    IN  Employees.Employee_Id%type ,
                      p_recordset OUT SYS_REFCURSOR) AS 
  Open P_Recordset For
Select name  From Employees  
  Where Employee_Id > p_employee_id; 
END get_emp_rs;
I could not past images so i am putting exaclty what I see on screen.
Test Implementaion 1
h1. Parameter                        Datatype                  IN/OUT                    INPUT                                  Result                                      Test Result
h2. P_employee_Id                NUMBER                    IN                           P_employee_id(500)                  blank here                                uncheck
h2. P_RECORDSET                 REF CURSOR               OUT                      (blank here)                             P_RECORDSET$                           check
under dynamic query i have put following

  select cursor(Select 'Andy'  name from dual  ) as P_RECORDSET       
     from dual
I created a implementation and when try to execute I got following on debug mode. I am still not sure why it says P_RECORDSET : Expected: [null] while i have mentioned the value should be compared with Dynamic Value Query. 

The following procedure was run.

Execution Call

Bind variables used
:1              NUMBER          IN     500                                     
:2              REF CURSOR      OUT    (null)                                  

Execution Results
P_RECORDSET : Expected: [null], Received: [NAME                                                                                                                                                                                                     
Can any one point what is wrong with OUT refcursor ? I also need helpon IN/OUT ref cursor?

Thank you so much,
