Disabling PL/SQL Warnings

Hi all!
So, the DBA keep insisting that the Procedure need to compile without warnings? Easy!
This is actually a nice option if you are compiling a code in a client and don’t want to show that your code has warnings, which is kind of ok, once it’s almost impossible to code without warnings.

And this is not even new. Have a look on this documentation from 10.2.

Ok, so how to do it?

ALTER SESSION SET plsql_warnings = 'disable:all';

Have a look in the example below:

SQL> CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE plw5001
  2  IS
  3     a   BOOLEAN;
  4     a   PLS_INTEGER;
  5  BEGIN
  6     a := 1;
  7     DBMS_OUTPUT.put_line ('Will not compile?');
  8  END plw5001;
  9  /
Warning: Procedure created with compilation errors.

SQL>
SQL> SHOW ERRORS
Errors for PROCEDURE PLW5001:

LINE/COL ERROR
-------- -----------------------------------------------------------------
4/4 PLW-05001: previous use of 'A' (at line 3) conflicts with this
use

6/4 PL/SQL: Statement ignored
6/4 PLS-00371: at most one declaration for 'A' is permitted
SQL>
SQL> ALTER SESSION SET plsql_warnings = 'disable:all';

Session altered.

SQL>
SQL> CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE plw5001
2 IS
3 a BOOLEAN;
4 a PLS_INTEGER;
5 BEGIN
6 DBMS_OUTPUT.put_line ('Will not compile?');
7 END plw5001;
8 /

Procedure created.
