Checking number format using a stored procedure

The following job aims at connecting to an Oracle Database containing
Social Security Numbers and their holders’ name, calling a stored procedure that checks

  • Drag and drop the following components from the Palette: tOracleConnection, tOracleInput, tOracleSP
    and tLogRow.

  • Link the tOracleConnection
    to the tOracleInput using a Then Run connection as no data is handled here.

  • And connect the other components using a Row Main link as rows are to be passed on as
    parameter to the SP component and to the console.

  • In the tOracleConnection,
    define the details of connection to the relevant Database. You will then be able
    to reuse this information in all other DB-related components.

  • Then select the tOracleInput and define its properties.

  • Select the Use an existing
    check box and select the tOracleConnection component in the list in order to reuse the
    connection details that you already set.

  • Select Repository as
    Property type as the Oracle schema is
    defined in the DB Oracle connection entry of the Repository. If you haven’t
    recorded the Oracle DB details in the Repository, then fill in the Schema name manually.

    then select the relevant entries in the respective list.

  • The schema used for the tOracleSP slightly differs from the input schema. Indeed, an
    extra column (SSN_Valid) is added to the Input schema.
    This column will hold the format validity status (1 or 0) produced by the procedure.

  • In the SP Name field,
    type in the exact name of the stored procedure (or function) as called in the
    Database. In this use case, the stored procedure name is is_ssn.

  • The basic function used in this particular example is as

  • As a return value is expected in this use case, the procedure
    acts as a function, so select the Is
    check box.

  • The only return value expected is based on the ssn_valid column, hence select the relevant list

  • In the Parameters area,
    define the input and output parameters used in the procedure. In this use case,

    preceding tOracleSP component.

are displayed even though they are not used as parameters in the stored procedure.

The final column shows the expected return value, whether the SS Number
checked is valid or not.
