Recompiling Invalid Objects
by Jeff Hunter, Sr. Database Administrator
When applying patches or making changes to a database I often invalidate many objects with one change. As long as no changes need to be made to the object, the following SQL*Plus script will recompile any object that is invalid:
set feedback off set verify off set echo off set pagesize 0 set heading off spool compile.sql select 'alter ' || decode(object_type, 'PACKAGE BODY', 'package', object_type) || ' ' || object_name|| ' compile' || decode(object_type, 'PACKAGE BODY', ' body;', ';') from dba_objects where status = 'INVALID' / spool off set feedback on set verify on set heading on set pagesize 40 @compile
