FAQ
Muru - I agree with Richard. This is the time to investigate a Web interface
for this application. Otherwise you're just starting down the path of a long
headache that will only get worse with time. As to your direct question, the
only interface that I am aware of that bypasses the SQL*Net interface is
JDBC thin client. And in my limited experience, I've seen zero problems when
JDBC thin client is used (have heard others on this list have experienced
some), but a lot of problems with the Microsoft ADO interface. Now you just
have to figure out how to interface VC++ and Java. But, I would expect that
Microsoft has some code that will cause the PC to self-destruct if you
attempt it.

Hrm. But that's why everyone is doing web-based(three-tier) applications
to avoid doing that kind of thing. Even if you manage to include Oracle
client into your app, you will still face the challenge of rolling
your app on 1000 PCs. Plus subsequent fixes, new versions.

Hello Gurus,

I would like to program our VC++ application to
directly connect to Oracle database using OO4O or OCI.
But the problem is this VC++ app is gonna run on 1000s
of desktops where we may have to install Oracle client
which will be a time consuming in-efficient process. I
am trying to see if the required client dlls and other
files can be combined in the VC++ package itself and
delivered to those 1000s of desktops.

Can any of you give some insight into this, please?

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks,
Muru
