The reason that you don't see that number of affected rows is that  
your client application is *not* executing the UPDATE statement; your  
client application is executing a SELECT statement (which calls the  
samplepro5() function, which returns void).  What would you expect to  
see if, for example, samplepro5() contained two or three UPDATE  
statements?  Which "numberOfAffectedRows" would you expect to see?

If you want to capture the number of rows affected by the UPDATE  
statement, modify samplepro5() so that it returns the row count  
(instead of returning void).  You can get the row count with the GET  
DIAGNOSTICS statement:

     UPDATE ...;
     GET DIAGNOSTICS myRowCountVariable = ROW COUNT;
     RETURN myRowCountVariable;
