Concurrent Programs Warning-Error: ERRBUFF and RETCODE



The ERRBUFF can be returned with any message.

The RETCODE can be returned with one of three values:

   0  -- Success
   1  -- Warning
   2  -- Error

Below is an example of a package where I can pass an employee number and it can return its full name. If no data found for the employee number passed, the concurrent program will turn YELLOW with the message 'No Employee Found'. If there is any other error occurs, it will turn RED with SQLERRM message.
