Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


This document provides the steps to schedule a job using DBMS_JOB.  

It should be noted that DBMS_JOB has been retained in later versions of Oracle mainly for backward compatibility. It is highly recommended to migrate from DBMS_JOB to DBMS_SCHEDULER which is more powerful and flexible. To convert the jobs from DBMS_JOB to DBMS_SCHEDULER, the document IF: An Example to Convert from DBMS_JOB Jobs to DBMS_SCHEDULER Jobs (Doc ID 2117140.1) may be used.
