Can I make a second connection to Oracle without losing the first?

Is it possible to have a stored procedure make a second connection to Oracle without losing where you're at in the first connection?

Is it possible to have a stored procedure make a second connection to Oracle without losing where you're at in the first connection? I'm looking for something akin to Unix sub sessions for verifying id/passwords by actually logging on and not by just doing a lookup.
Unfortunately, there is no such mechanism natively in Oracle. However, you can create a Java Stored Procedure in Oracle which executes the SQL*Plus command line executable. This Java Stored Procedure can test the id/password combination this way and then return the results back to the calling procedure. Go to Ask Tom to see examples of how to use a Java Stored Procedure in this manner.
