Comments for The WRAP Utility and the DBMS_DDL Package
VAMSHI said...Great information abt wrap
bharathi said...how to open wrap file into normal file ie when we wrap a package or procedure, how can i bring it normal procedure or package which was written orginally
The whole point is you can't unwrap it. You have to keep the original source and ship the wrapped package.
Note. There are some 3rd party unwrap utilities advertised, but I guess Oracle will alter wrap to make sure the unwraps don't work in future.
Lauri said...Very interesting utility. But there are online tools to un-wrap the PL/SQL code... Is there a more efficient way to obfuscate the PL/SQL code?
This is the only tool like this that Oracle provide. There may be some 3rd party products that can help.
Because of the code has to ultimately be runnable by the DB, there will always me a way of cracking any form of wrap. It is a way to stop the casual observer.
You probably need to check this out:

Please correct the typo about output wrapped file name extension.
It should be ".plb".
Tim... said...Whoops. :) Corrected that now.
Thanks for the heads-up. :)
jermu said...from where/which client tool i can find this wrap.exe tool? from instant client i can't find it..
I always use if from the database server, you you will probably find it in the full client installation. The instant client is purposely kept as small as possible, so it doesn't contain utilities.
