Send Email via Oracle Developer December 28, 2007

Posted by Muhammad Habib in Oracle Developer.

Dear All

I found one query regarding how to send email from Oracle Developer. I have posted it here.

create or replace procedure E_MAIL(

p_to in varchar2,
p_from in varchar2,
p_subject in varchar2,
p_text in varchar2 default null,
p_html in varchar2 default null,
p_smtp_hostname in varchar2,
p_smtp_portnum in varchar2)
l_boundary varchar2(255) default ‘a1b2c3d4e3f2g1’;
l_connection utl_smtp.connection;
l_body_html clob := empty_clob; –This LOB will be the email message
l_offset number;
l_ammount number;
l_temp varchar2(32767) default null;
l_connection := utl_smtp.open_connection( p_smtp_hostname, p_smtp_portnum );
utl_smtp.helo( l_connection, p_smtp_hostname );
utl_smtp.mail( l_connection, p_from );
utl_smtp.rcpt( l_connection, p_to );

l_temp := l_temp || ‘MIME-Version: 1.0’ || chr(13) || chr(10);
l_temp := l_temp || ‘To: ‘ || p_to || chr(13) || chr(10);
l_temp := l_temp || ‘From: ‘ || p_from || chr(13) || chr(10);
l_temp := l_temp || ‘Subject: ‘ || p_subject || chr(13) || chr(10);
l_temp := l_temp || ‘Reply-To: ‘ || p_from || chr(13) || chr(10);
l_temp := l_temp || ‘Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary=’ ||
chr(34) || l_boundary || chr(34) || chr(13) ||

— Write the headers
dbms_lob.createtemporary( l_body_html, false, 10 );

— Write the text boundary
l_offset := dbms_lob.getlength(l_body_html) + 1;
l_temp := ‘–‘ || l_boundary || chr(13)||chr(10);
l_temp := l_temp || ‘content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii’ ||
chr(13) || chr(10) || chr(13) || chr(10);

— Write the plain text portion of the email
l_offset := dbms_lob.getlength(l_body_html) + 1;

— Write the HTML boundary
l_temp := chr(13)||chr(10)||chr(13)||chr(10)||’–‘ || l_boundary ||
chr(13) || chr(10);
l_temp := l_temp || ‘content-type: text/html;’ ||
chr(13) || chr(10) || chr(13) || chr(10);
l_offset := dbms_lob.getlength(l_body_html) + 1;

— Write the HTML portion of the message
l_offset := dbms_lob.getlength(l_body_html) + 1;

— Write the final html boundary
l_temp := chr(13) || chr(10) || ‘–‘ || l_boundary || ‘–‘ || chr(13);
l_offset := dbms_lob.getlength(l_body_html) + 1;

— Send the email in 1900 byte chunks to UTL_SMTP
l_offset := 1;
l_ammount := 1900;
while l_offset < dbms_lob.getlength(l_body_html) loop
l_offset := l_offset + l_ammount ;
l_ammount := least(1900,dbms_lob.getlength(l_body_html) – l_ammount);
end loop;
utl_smtp.quit( l_connection );


After creating this procedure, we can call it from any form or trigger etc. 

Hope it will be helpful.

Regards ….

Installation / Re-Installation of Oracle Database 10g on Windows November 17, 2007

Posted by Muhammad Habib in DBA.
1 comment so far

1.    Take back-up of data (Full Database).
2.    Shutdown your database. (Shutdown Abort).
3.    Take back-up of SP file.
(If you have set some parameters previously according to your environment)
4.    Note the size and names of all table spaces.
5.    Delete Database through wizard (If previously installed).
6.    Run Installer and uninstall Oracle from your system.
7.    Remove Oracle entries from registry.
8.    Restart your system.
9.    Remove Oracle Directory from System.
10.    Check services from Administrative tools. Please verify that there should not any Oracle related service existing in the list. No TNS, no oracle home etc.
11.    Reboot your system.
12.    Run Oracle Installer and start installation. Follow wizard and select options according to your requirements.
13.    When Database is created, verify your work by connecting to database.
14.    Shutdown Database.
15.    Restore SP file.
16.    Start Database.
(Note if you find any error on startup, then you have to generate SP file from init.ora file)
17.    Install patch from its installer and run the related scripts. (It will take around 45 minutes so no need to worry).
18.    Reboot your machine.
19.    Create table spaces by same name and size as we noted in step 4.
20.    Load (Import) backup from dmp file. Create log file as well.
(View log file. If you find any error of “table space already exists”, then don’t worry. It is because we have created the table spaces our selves.)

Good Luck!!!
