Subject: [Zope-dev] DCOracle2 Beta 1 Announcement
> DCOracle2 is a replacement for DCOracle, written primarily in C. DCOracle
> uses OCI 7 bindings for most Oracle calls, with OCI 8 mixed in for LOB
> support. Oracle 8i disallows mixing of calls within a statement, and so
> breaks LOB support. DCO2 uses entirely OCI 8 calls, and thus can use LOBs.
> New in this Release
> Beta 1
> Stored procedure input works properly, cycles in stored procedures
> Stored procedures now have meaningful docstrings (describing their
> parameters). Type coercion change from a tuple kludge to a TypeCoercion
> object. Set ability (and default) to do static binding for BindingArrays,
> working around dynamic fetch occasional NULL bug on Linux. Batch
> executemany(). Add backward compatable dbiRaw and execute modes.
> Alpha 6
> Nested Cursors, e.g. SELECT ENAME, CURSOR(SELECT ENAME FROM EMP WHERE
> MGR=7908) FROM EMP WHERE EMPNO=7908). API 2.0 type objects. Add trim() to
> LobLocators. Wrap LOB permissions for Zope in ZOracleDA. Change result on
> execute w/o results to None, not . Return statement type code after
> Alpha 5
> Stored procedure fixes, and debugging enhancements.
> Alpha 4
> Stored procedure IN/OUT variables, changes to executemany()
> Alpha 3
> Changed ZOracleDA to not use method call to connect(). Partial stored
> procedure work
> Alpha 2
> Bug fixes, largely packaging, from Alpha 1. Added SQLT_AFC handler, SPARC
> alignment fixes.
> Alpha 1
> First www.zope.org release
> This release contains both DCOracle2 and a slightly modified ZOracleDA; it
> will register as ZOracleDA would (to silently upgrade Oracle connections)
> and thus cannot be run concurrently with ZOracleDA/DCOracle.
> To replace ZOracleDA, untar into lib/python/Products and make, move
> ZOracleDA out of lib/python/Products, and rename lib/python/Products/DCO2
> This release is intended for testing with ZOracleDA feature compatibility
> (including LOB support) and is also intended for general use.
> NT support has been tested, Microsoft Visual Studio project files are
> included; this has only received testing with Oracle 8.0 and Oracle 8.1 on
> Linux, Solaris, and Windows NT; a wider variety of platform experience is
> The product is available at http://www.zope.org/Members/matt/dco2.
