          What should you do now? Ask the question in an Oracle forum. This arena is for Java queries.

            Then you should talk to a DBA for clarification. Most DBA's I know are also PL/SQL, T/SQL developers. I'm a software engineer and I have had plenty of late nights of coding to complete an interation. If you think a DBA is a boring job, you are way off track. As the other poster said, post your question in an Oracle DBA forum and see what those people have to say about it.
