External Stored Procedures

Instead of using SQL PL, stored procedures can be written in external languages like C, Java, Cobol, a Microsoft CLR-supported language, or in OLE.

This can be useful if some functionality like operating system access or file access is not supported in SQL PL. If a prodeure will developed in an external language the prodedure must be still registered by using the CREATE PRODEDURE statement.

Developing stored prodedures in external languages will not be discussed on this website!!!
