Okay, we all know you have to glue things together. I can't seem to get a straight answer at work, so I thought I'd ask expert gluers: what's the simplest and most intelligent way to "shell out" of PL/SQL code? Note that I'm talking server-side stored PL/SQL code here; shelling out of SQL*Plus is useful but irrelevant for what I'm doing.
I highly suspect I'm not getting a straight answer because there's not one. If anyone's interested, I'll post how they're having me do it.
