Re: Shared Pool causing packages to automatically go invalid!

Can the shared pool being "too" small cause a database object to just "go"
invalid.  I never heard of such a thing.



Paula,

The attached SQL file will show all dependencies for an object,
both forwards and backwards through the heirarchy of objects
in DBA_DEPENDENCIES, along with the LAST_DDL_TIME of all children.

The LAST_DDL_TIME should help track down why an object became invalid.

I'm fairly sure this query will not work in 8i. :(

You can circumvent that by logging into some account other than SYS
and creating a table DBA_DEPENDENCIES.  (it doesn't work in 8i due
to queries on complex views and 'connect by' not working)

create table scott.dba_dependencies
as
select * from sys.dba_dependencies.

HTH,
