I have a large number of folders with sql scripts that I need to run from windows with sqlplus. The problem is the scripts must be run in order. When I loop through the scripts and run sqlplus for each one, they sometimes fail because things in the prior script are not yet available.
So I added a jdbc client that checks a table for when the data is available from the prior sqlplus script. It says yes the data is visible in the table so the script can launch the next SQLPlus process but it fails unless I put a 2 second sleep in.
Because sqlplus doesn't have a "CD" command and there are limitations with SQL_PATH and relative imported child scripts, I'm afraid I'm stuck with running multiple sqlplus sessions.
I should clarify that I'm looking for a way to run scripts in sequence with sqlplus. There is an issue where one sqlplus session commits and exits and the next starts but the commit is not yet available to the new sqlplus session. To me this is a bug with sqlplus but maybe someone can explain how this is a "feature".
