Which has the higher priority in your organization: Deploying a new database or securing the ones you already have? Looking for a website, and resources, dedicated solely to securing Oracle databases? Check out DBSecWorx.
Purpose The SUPPRESSES_WARNING_6009 suppresses the 6009 PL/SQL warning improving the handling when an exception handler does not use RAISE or RAISE_APPLICATION_ERROR to raise an active exception.

In some situations, where the application code intentionally calls a handler routine and is not intended to stop processing, the compilerís default behavior may be too aggressive. This pragma bypassing the 6009 warning.
