The application sends the statements composing a procedure to the database, where they are compiled and saved for subsequent execution. The application that creates the procedure must do the following:
1 Ascertain whether the Teradata Database supports stored procedures.
2 Send a request containing the procedure that could exceed the maximum parcel size.
3 Provide compilation options to the database.
To ascertain if the Teradata Database supports stored procedures, the DBCHQE CLIv2-limits query (or the deprecated Maximum-segment-size query) is used. If the segment length value returned by CLIv2-limits is zero, then SQL Stored Procedures are not supported (the deprecated Maximum-segment-size query will fail with a return code 359 if such procedures are not supported).
