Many examples in the web.
You may start with the documentation.
If not sufficient, use Google.

Thank you Michel. I have successfully created a job using dbms_scheduler.create_program and DEFINE_PROGRAM_ARGUMENT but i don't see any good data dictionary views for them to view the status of the job run and also to know which parameters i passed to. It would be difficult to debug based on the requests. Please suggest.

But there is no view, as far I as I know, for what has been executed.

Can this be done without using create program ? And only with create job ?

I tried passing the parameters dynamically to the procedure using the dbms_scheduler.create_job and it worked fine. But my only concern is what if due to any reason, the job fails and it is difficult to find in the data dictionary tables which request got failed and for what parameters as it is not a scheduled program and i want to run only once per request ? Any suggestions?

In the job itself record what you do in a log table: job start time, parameters, error it encounters, end time...

See a picture of my car that does not work correctly.
Tell me how to make my car go.
Above provides NO actionable detail.
How can we reproduce what you report?

Have a look at user_scheduler_jobs - it'll show if it's running, when it next runs, how many times it's failed, etc.

what do the run_count and failure_count columns show?

Does the insert work if you run it directly?

It works just fine in my DB.
What's your job_queue_processes parameter set to?

OK, but it is never used or referenced within the BEGIN ... END: block.
Did you start a new session to inspect the table content?

That's why it's not working - with that set to 0 no jobs can run.
Up it.

OK, but it is never used or referenced within the BEGIN ... END: block.
And it doesn't need to be - it's implicit. I would always say the columns should be specified but there's no reason why that wouldn't work.

Think you might need some coffee - oracle only does that when you set the isolation level to serializable.
