comment Is there anyway to search PL/SQL reserved words with contains function?
What do you consider "Oracle reserved words"? "do", for example, is not a reserved word in v$reserved_words.

comment Is there anyway to search PL/SQL reserved words with contains function?
Are you trying to search the text of code stored in Oracle (which is what I initially read your question as asking)? Or are you trying to search for data stored in a user-defined table? If you're searching for data in a user-defined table, can you create an Oracle Text index on that table?

comment Is there anyway to search PL/SQL reserved words with contains function?
@Andy - Sorry, I'm afraid that comment doesn't clarify anything for me. It may be useful to expand your question to include, say, a few example pieces of code, the types of searches you want to run, and the expected results of those searches on that sample code. Neither "for test" or "do test" are keywords in PL/SQL-- "for" is a keyword but neither "do" nor "test" are.

comment grant permissions in oracle from one database to another
@KyleM - It would be whatever the TNS alias on the EmployeeDB database for the ContractorDB database is. That's generally going to be the same as the name of the database but that's just a naming convention-- your TNS alias might be different.

This appears to be identical to a question you asked on StackOverflow-- stackoverflow.com/questions/26354517/…. Please don't ask the same question on multiple stacks.

comment Is it impossible to iterate table rows in Oracle PL/SQL without using a cursor?
Why do you ask? What problem are you trying to solve? "without using a cursor" is also rather problematic since each and every SELECT statement opens a cursor. Both your examples use exactly the same number of cursors (or would if they worked). A SELECT ... INTO that returns anything other than 1 row will throw an exception no_data_found or too_many_rows so it would never make sense to check the rowcount (which I assume you meant rather than rownum) after doing a SELECT INTO.

comment Oracle Support Identifiers?
Your tags indicate that you're using Oracle XE, the unsupported, free version of Oracle. You can't buy support for Oracle XE. You can upgrade to the standard edition (Oracle SE or Oracle SE 1 depending on the server) in which case you'd purchase your first year of support when you purchase your license.

comment PL/SQL operating system call
@Ekevoo - Any number of queuing mechanisms can be implemented without polling (though one process polling even every few seconds for a very small number of requests shouldn't come close to putting a dent in a tiny server). Oracle AQ can be configured so that the message automatically kicks off the process (once the triggering transaction completes of course). For sufficiently small volumes of requests, your APEX process could also submit a dbms_job job that runs (more or less) immediately after the triggering transaction commits and calls a Java stored proc to shell out.
