solution from zope-db archives was pointed to me by Maciej Wisniowski :

and here is the final implementation:

1-add a Z cxOracle Database Connection (myconnection) via pmi

2-add a python script for external method in Plone\Data\Extensions :
# myscript.py
def mymethod(self , somename):
  conn    = self.myconnection()
  curext  = conn.db.cursor()
  curint  = conn.db.cursor()
  sql     = "begin MY_PACKAGE.MY_PROC(:p_Cursor, :p_NAME); end;"
  curext.execute(sql, (curint, somename))
  data    = TransformCursorIntoReadableText(curint)
  return data

3-add an external method :
Module name=myscript
Function Name=mymethod

This external method can be called from a "Script (python)".
