Thank you Ann for clarification.


I would have to dig in for example o that behavior, maybe it only seemed to me that this has occurred.


Best regards.

I have two procedures:

Now, I've made some changes in PROC_A, do I need to recompile PROC_B as well?


That depends on what you've done to PROC_A.  Obviously, if you've changed its parameters,

then yes, you have to change and recompile PROC_B.


If so, what is the shortest way of doing it?


Again, it depends.  The easiest - brute force - way is to shutdown your server ... or at least 

all connections to that database.  Compiled procedures are memory resident and go away on

database shutdown.  If not, I think ALTER is the only alternative.

I am pretty sure I've noticed some bad behaviour of PROC_B if I've left it without recompilation.


You shouldn't if there haven't been changes to the parameters of A.  If you do notice something,

you should report the symptoms and error messages.


Good luck,
