Informix database stored procedure summary

When you use database stored procedures in a PowerBuilder application, keep the following points in mind:

  • Manipulating stored procedures

    To manipulate database stored procedures, PowerBuilder provides SQL statements that are similar to cursor statements.

  • Retrieval and update

    PowerBuilder supports retrieval, update, or a combination of retrieval and update in database stored procedures, including procedures that do not return a result set and those that return a result set.

  • Transactions and procedures without result sets

    When a procedure executes using a particular connection (transaction) and the procedure does not return a result set, the procedure is no longer active. No result set is pending and, therefore, you do not execute a CLOSE statement.
