let's begin at the beginning:

0) Version of Oracle and Platform it's running on?

1) How is the Oracle session itself being launched/spawned/instantiated?

2) Is the Oracle instance/session being run from the same machine as your intended script is sitting on...?

0)9i & sun solaris 5.9
1)Oracle session is started through scripts in unix.
2)Yes both resides on the same box.

I want my script to be triggered on a particular table being updated.

In Oracle 9i you have 2 possibilities:
* named pipes and the dbms_pipe package
* do a system call via the dbms_java package

In my experience both methods are rather slow and I'd be cautious when using them in a trigger.
