Oracle instant client supprt

Post by zvasku » Fri 09 Feb 2007 12:24

Hello,

do you plan to support Oracle instant client? It's only zip with oci related dlls. There is no ORAHOME etc.

Because I have Professional version I have made changes to my dbexpress driver to work correctly with instant client.

I think the good way is to use VendorLib to specify direct location of OCI.

Best regards
Zdenek

Thank you for assistance. We'll consider possibility to implement this feature in either of the next DbxOda versions.

Zdenek,

is it possible you share your method for connecting to instant client?

I have changed DetectOCI in OraCall.pas to direct locate OCI.DLL.

Be sure to set CharSet parameter.

I have problem only with CLOB where WIN1250 characters are wrong (replaced by ?). All other text fields (VARCHAR, CHAR) are ok.
