RE: dbms_job not Working

That did it.  job_queue_processes was set to zero in the init.ora file.
I didn't apply the CPU (the other DBA here did), but are you saying that
part of applying the CPU set the parameter to zero?  

I altered the system to set this parameter to 2, and I also changed the
init.ora parameter.

Thanks everybody for your responses.

Haven't you set job_processes to zero as part of the patch apply,
and forgot to set it back perhaps ?

"job_processes", I mean the parameter that dictates the
number of job processes to be created ... don't remember
if that's exactly the name, sorry but it's night here and I'm very tired
;(
