To remove an archive file (specifically, a JAR or ZIP file) that was previously registered using the SQLJ.INSTALL_JAR external stored procedure, use the SQLJ.REMOVE_JAR external stored procedure. If successful, REMOVE_JAR removes a JAR or ZIP file installation and its classes from the database.

Before You Begin

Take the following steps before you remove a previously registered archive file for an external routine:

  1. Verify you have the EXECUTE privilege on the SQLJ.REMOVE_JAR external stored procedure.
  2. If the default database is not the same as the default database with which the archive file was registered, use the DATABASE statement to change the default database.
  3. Verify you have the DROP PROCEDURE or DROP FUNCTION privilege on any of the following objects:
    • The default database
    • The object you are removing from the default database, identified by the SQL identifier that was passed to SQLJ.INSTALL_JAR
