Once you have written your stored procedures, and in the case of AEPs, compiled it and installed it on the machines from which it will be executed, you will need to add one stored procedure object to your data dictionary for each stored procedure function that you want to call. For example, if you have an AEP library with five stored procedure functions, and want to be able to call all of them from your client applications, you will need to create five stored procedure objects. Creating stored procedure objects for AEPs is discussed in the next section.
In addition to creating stored procedure objects, if your data dictionary is set up to require logins and check user rights, you will need to grant permissions to the groups and/or users who need to execute the stored procedures. Granting permissions to stored procedures is discussed later in this section.
Installing the SQL stored procedure was described earlier in this chapter in the section "Creating and Installing SQL Stored Procedures." Consequently, the following discussion applies specifically to AEPs.
