RE: Dependency tree of packages/procedures and functions

Hi all

Ok I  think everyone misunderstood me,

I know the database tracks the dependencies, I can see that easily.

Package A dependant on B and B on C.

Now we have hundreds of packages, many levels.

The developers give gives me a new A, it does not want to compile
because the spec in C that it also uses has changed. But they did not
record this dependancy anywhere,

The problem is not that much that on the target system it does not want
to compile initially, it is the time it takes to figure out why 100 sub
packages all failed because they forgot about the relation ship. They
now have to go back to source system extract that package and ship it
also, considering at the entire time if this might break something else.

The current plan is to write a report that hooks into dba_dependancies
which they can run when shipping a package to see what the relations
ships are and consider if they need to ship anything else that is at a
newer version than on production...

Thanks for the guys that got back,


PS toad got a nice dependacy viewer for source code based objects.

Hi all

Hope you can help.

As with all big projects our developers forgot to listen to us when we
asked them to keep a dependency tree what calls what.

Now we are busy going into pre-prod etc and get asked to move Package A,
doing this nicely goes and breaks half the world down the line,

I would like to run something against the database (packages, procedures
and functions) to generate a dependency list.

Any ideas what is out there that can do this (freeware prepared), any
output acceptable.
