OracleLoader / Mono

Post by ekramer17 » Mon 30 Nov 2009 19:45

I want to use dotConnect for Oracle (specifically the OracleLoader class) under Mono. I thought I read somewhere in the forums that dotConnect under Mono only supports connecting in direct mode. However, the documentation states that the OracleLoader class is not available when using direct mode.

So, if both of those statements are true, then how can I use the OracleLoader class if I'm running under Mono?

Thanks in advance.

You are right. OracleLoader is not supported in the Direct mode, and thus this class is not available under Mono.

Fair enough. I do need the functionality of the loader class under mono, though. How does the OracleLoader class initiate a direct path load without making a call to sqlldr?

OracleLoader uses the OCI functionality (direct path load interface), but dotConnect for Oracle doesn't interoperate with OCI under Mono. The OracleLoader feature cannot be used under Mono.

I wouldn't mind calling an external C utility from my ASP.NET code ... would you happen to have available the OCI OracleLoader functionality written in C?

We will investigate such possibility and notify you about the results as soon as possible.
