And now we are going to learn how to add new objects to our database. Let's start by adding a new stored procedure.
24) In Solution Explorer, right-click on Procedures folder, and select "Add New Item..."
25) Wow! Now that is exciting! You can choose most (but not all) Oracle object types in Visual Studio. And each will be placed in its own sub-folder and will be subject to versioning. Select "Stored Procedure" from the list, and give it a name and create the file.
26) The newly created procedure is now displayed in Solution Explorer but it is not in Server Explorer...that is normal...as Server Explorer is representing the reality of what exists in the Oracle Server, and Solution Explorer is representing what exists in your project.
27) Double Click on the new stored procedure in Solution Explorer. Write a simple yet valid procedure so that it would compile with no errors or warnings. If you are new to PL/SQL, open up an existing stored procedure in this project and copy and paste the content in this window, but just make sure you name it back to the new name. Save the script file and close it.
28) To actually migrate the newly created stored procedure from Visual Studio onto the server: in Solution Explorer right-click the new stored procedure and select Run.
The new stored procedure will now be displayed in Server Explorer. Meaning it is actually in the Oracle database.
29) Your should now add the Oracle project's source code into TFS or any other version control software of your choice. You can do so in a variety of ways. That also depends on whether you had already added your existing solution to TFS or not...any ways one easy way to add your project to TFS would be by right-clicking on the project name in Solution Explorer and selecting "Add solution to Source Control...".
