Bugs in DbxOda 4.20.9.

Post by acido80 » Tue 08 Jul 2008 10:30

Hi world.
I use the CoreLab driver for long time, and when I've donwloaded the new version (yesterday) I've found a very big bug (I hope that it is a bug).

Now is IMPOSSIBLE connect to an oracle DB without the Oracle Client
installed.

Infact, if in the database name I insert the Oracle Alias the connection works, otherwise, if I insert the old connection string (ip:port:sid)
I have this error:

ORA-12545: Connect failed because target host or object does not exist

Someone can help me?

I have same problems.

In OCI mode I see Cannot initialize OCI.

In NET mode there is a change in dll in export function:

old version getSQLDriverORANet
new version getSQLDriverORADirect

It's a problem for us to change this.

Thanks
Zdenek

Now we have released the new build of DbxOda (4.20.10) with the fix.

To zvasku:
New versions of dbexpoda.dll export both functions getSQLDriverORANet and getSQLDriverORADirect. So you don't need to change your code.

I can confirm, that 4.20.10 work ok now.

Thanks a lot

Zdenek

PS: In long term period it's not problem to change dll export function (we need to redeploy all our software to customers).
