- What is TOCCI ?
TOCCI is a open implementation of Oracle OCCI. OCCI is a wrapper around OCI -
UGLY Oracle Call Interface.
Project page is available here :
- Why should I use TOCCI ?
If your project use Oracle 9i features, better to stay with Oracle ;). BUT.
Usually developers choose oracle 9 only for its C++ wrapper called OCCI.
Now you can do it with Oracle 8.
- Where can I find documentation for OCI/OCCI?
I guess OCI/OCCI documentation exists on oracle documentation CD.
And of course, http://www.google.com
- Can I use TOCCI to downgrade application from Oracle 9 to Oracle 8?
Of course YES. This project was intended for it! :)
If you're lucky or your application isn't very complex, all you have to do is
- Is it free?
YES. it has flexible BSD license. You can use it in your closed source or commercial projects.
But you will have to put copyright information in your program. it is not so painful as it seems to be ;)
