Developers can create an MLS function for concurrent programs. The MLS function determines in which of the installed languages a request should run. MLS functions are PL/SQL stored procedures, written to a specific API. When the concurrent manager processes a multilingual request for a concurrent program with an associated MLS function, it calls the MLS function to retrieve a list of languages and submits the appropriate child requests for each language.
