I know two ways to execute PL/SQL scripts from Control-M:

1. If you are using a Unix-type operating system on your database system, you can create a shell script to launch a sqlplus session and then use the execute comand to run your PL/SQL. Example:

sqlplus /nolog
connect [$user_name]/[$user_pass]@[SID]

This method has a disadvantage: it will only execute the shell job and the agent response is going to be an operating system-centric one, this means the agent is not going to interpret the databases error responses when they happen. The advantage is that you can run old database procedures in Oracle 8i, for example. I'm not sure, but there should be a similar way using .bat files on Windows platforms to run PL/SQLs

2. The other way is to use the database module to run PL/SQL. This is the recommended method since Control-M's agent is going to interpret Oracle error codes. We run database processes on a daily basis using this method. Control-M only supports Oracle 9i or newer.

The seconnd method also works for Oracle functions. If you have out/return parameters, Control-M will detect them and you can capture them on a variable and do some other processing depending on output.

Hope this helps.
