Built-In Packages v10

This chapter describes the built-in packages that are provided with Advanced Server. For certain packages, non-superusers must be explicitly granted the EXECUTE privilege on the package before using any of the package’s functions or procedures. For most of the built-in packages, EXECUTE privilege has been granted to PUBLIC by default.

For information about using the GRANT command to provide access to a package, see the Database Compatibility for Oracle Developers SQL Guide, available at:

All built-in packages are owned by the special sys user which must be specified when granting or revoking privileges on built-in packages:

GRANT EXECUTE ON PACKAGE SYS.UTL_FILE TO john;
