You have Streams setup in place and you are using a DML Handler Procedure at Apply site (DBMS_APPLY_ADM.SET_DML_HANDLER).

Sometimes you see Apply process going into aborted state due the DML Handler procedure getting invalidated. When reviewing the reason apply aborted via dba_apply.error_message column or checking procedure errors at dba_errors view you see an error stack similar to this:

ORA-04068: existing state of packages has been discarded
ORA-04065: not executed, altered or dropped stored procedure "public.anydata"
ORA-06508: pl/sql: could not find program unit being called: "public.anydata"
ORA-06512: at "strmamdin.my_apply_dml_handler_proc", line 375
ORA-06512: at line 1


Upgraded your 9i or 10g database to or 11g.
