Code Inspection: Forward declaration without definition
Reports declarations of procedures and functions that are missing their implementation in code.
In Oracle, you can declare a procedure or a function without its body, and write the implementation later. The inspection will report names of such procedures or functions that are left without implementation.
DECLARE PROCEDURE foo(a int, b varchar2); BEGIN NULL; END;
foo procedure is declared but is missing implementation. We can add the implementation to get rid of the error.
DECLARE PROCEDURE foo(a int, b varchar2); PROCEDURE foo(a int, b varchar2) IS BEGIN NULL; END; BEGIN NULL; END;
