I'm pleased to announce the first release of ZcxOracleDA - a Zope database adaptor for Oracle using the cx_Oracle library.
This is an initial development release and should be used with caution! You can download it from: http://www.zope.org/Members/andyhird/ZcxOracleDA >From the README.txt: Z cxOracle DA This is a Zope Database Adaptor for cx_Oracle. It's currently only been tested with Zope 2.7 and above with cx_Oracle 4.3.1 and above. Installation You must install cx_Oracle before attempting to use this DA. You can find cx_Oracle at:: http://cx-oracle.sourceforge.net/ Then extract this product into your Zope instances Products directory. Connection Strings The connection string is passed directly to cx_Oracle.connect(). The string is usually of the form username/[EMAIL PROTECTED] Known Issues cx_Oracle returns date types as python datetime.datetime types. The DA will check the queries description to see if any of the rows being returned are of that type and if they are will convert them on the fly to Zopes DateTime type. Unfortunately this currently means the DA iterates through all the rows returned and modifies the return values which is far from optimal. Also the DA currently doesn't handle returned datetime timezones well. It currently converts all datetimes to UTC regardless of the timezone Oracle is using. Ideally the DA would query the current Oracle DBTIMEZONE and use that instead. If you want to change the timezone used for datetime conversion then edit db.py and modify CONVERSION_TIMEZONE. _______________________________________________ Zope-Announce maillist - Zope-Announce@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce Zope-Announce for Announcements only - no discussions (Related lists - Users: http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope Developers: http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
