I think I'd like to talk to you about this. We're about to work on
transitioning a web-based product to Zope, and we use Store Procedures
exclusively. I'd love to have the extra ZSQL goo instead of having to wrap
the code at such an individual level. Maybe we can stick someone on the task.
But I'm sure we'll need a guiding hand or two. All of this assumes I can get
past the basic problem that follows...

I've been looking through that code (we've started using DCOracleStorage on
the backend.) For some reason, though, I can't get the stored procedure stuff
to work like you do. Check out the following:

Oracle8i Enterprise Edition Release 8.1.6.0.0 - Production
With the Partitioning option
JServer Release 8.1.6.0.0 - Production

SQL> desc pgm140_api;

Then from python, with the same connection string, I do:
Python 1.5.2 (#1, Feb 14 2000, 18:27:27)  [GCC 2.95.1 19990816 (release)] on

>>> import DCOracle.oci_
>>> conn=DCOracle.Connect('****')
>>> pgm140_api=getattr(conn.procedures,'pgm140_api')
>>> sql_select_targets=getattr(pgm140_api, 'select_targets')
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
  File "/apps/zope/lib/python/Products/ZOracleDA/DCOracle/ociProc.py", line
324, in __getattr__
oci.error: no usable procedure named pgm140_api.select_targets


I've tried using all caps on one or both as well to no avail. Any thoughts?

Monty
