RE: DBMS_JOB - BROKEN FLAG ISSUE

Thanks, Everyone! The job is scheduled for every 15 seconds. We have
implemented the work-around to remove the job and re-submit it later
when required instead of setting up the broken flag. It seems to be
working.

Raja.

Alberto,

        You are pretty darn close to being right as I've also run into
similar things.  In my case I was trying to unset the broken flag, but
since the job ran every 10 minutes as fast as I could unbreak it, it
would break again.  I believe the status is set by either the dbms_job
procedure or the last execution whichever terminates last.

It doesn't reproduce on 10.2.0.2 on windows XP: dellera@ORACLE10>
variable j number dellera@ORACLE10> exec dbms_job.submit (:j,
what=>'begin null; end;', interval=>'sysdate+1');

PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.

dellera@ORACLE10> commit;

Commit complete.

dellera@ORACLE10> select broken from user_jobs;

N

dellera@ORACLE10> exec dbms_job.broken (:j, true);

PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.

dellera@ORACLE10> select broken from user_jobs;

Y

dellera@ORACLE10> commit;

Commit complete.

dellera@ORACLE10> select broken from user_jobs;

Could it be that you set the broken flag when the job was running, then
the job ended, tried to update the status row, found it locked by you,
and so only immediately after the commit, was able to update the status
row thus overwriting your broken value ?

BTW when you exit, sqlplus commits by default, so your scenarios are
identical - maybe the difference was in the job running or not.
