Oracle AQ and Change Notification

Hello everyone,

I want to keep track of insertions into a table and put the new rows into a message in a queue. I made a trigger that enqueues the message and works pretty well.
But now i found Oracle Change Notification and i thought i can use this feature instead of my trigger. I followed the instructions from here and managed to insert some data in nfrowchanges table (Example 13-4 Procedure).

My problem is that if i add in the procedure the code for enqueuing the message (instead of that insert) it seems that it is not executed and i do not understand why.
Any hint would help me a lot because i don't know what to do next.

Thanks in advance.

    No version number and no code so I have no idea what you are doing ... or doing incorrectly. But I can tell you that the demos on my website work (at least they do in all fully supported versions of the product).

    I use version As mentioned above i use the following procedure:
    /* give all necessary grants, create the queue and start it - no need to put this here */
      v_cn_recip       SYS.CHNF$_REG_INFO;
      v_regid          Number;
      v_empno         scott.emp.empno%TYPE;
      v_cn_recip := Sys.Chnf$_Reg_Info('quser.emp_callback', 
                    DBMS_CHANGE_NOTIFICATION.QOS_ROWIDS, 0, 2, 0);
      -- begin the registration boundary
      v_regid := Dbms_Change_Notification.New_Reg_Start(v_cn_recip);
        Select empno 
          Into   v_empno
        From   scott.emp
        Where  ROWNUM < 2;
      -- end the registration boundary
      DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE('the registration id for this query is '||v_regid);
    --database table to hold the record of notification events received
    create table emprowchanges(
           regid number, 
           table_name Varchar2(100), 
           row_id Varchar2(2000));

    message VARCHAR2(128);
      regid := ntfnds.registration_id;
      numtables := ntfnds.numtables;
      event_type := ntfnds.event_type;
        FOR i IN 1..numtables LOOP
          tbname := ntfnds.table_desc_array(i).table_name;
          operation_type := ntfnds.table_desc_array(I). Opflags;
          numrows := ntfnds.table_desc_array(i).numrows;
          FOR j IN 1..numrows LOOP
              row_Id := Ntfnds.Table_Desc_Array(I).Row_Desc_Array(J).Row_Id;
              insert into emprowchanges values(regid, tbname, row_id);
              select to_char(empno) || '$' || ename into message from scott.emp where rowid=row_id; -- construct the message 
              -- now, the problem
              -- if i comment this, the procedure makes the insert above; otherwise no insert and also no message in queue

    The procedure call is probably failing - did you check the database alert logs and trace files for evidence of errors when the enqueue procedure is active?

    If you can't find anything try adding some instrumentation to your code to trace its position.
