Supported for
Oracle, see Oracle Debugger


Note: Read the database system specific topics for more detailed information on how the debugging process works.


Starting the Package Debugger

The Package Editor does not have a Debug button, you have to start it from the context menu in the Database Navigator.


You either select a routine in the package directly, use the menu and select Debug or use the menu on the package, select Debug Routine in Package and select one of the available routines.


Starting the Debugger for a Routine in a Package


If the routine has any input parameters, a dialog is shown so you can edit the parameter values.


Edit values for the parameters


The NULL columns signals a parameter to be NULL, while the Default columns tells the parameter to be the default, if it has a default assigned.


Click OK to continue to the debugger main window after editing the parameter values.


If there are no input parameters, the dialog will be skipped and we go straight to the debugger main window.
