DataDirect Oracle Wire Driver and (lack of) OID support.

  • So whats the dealio here.  The DataDirect driver will not support DBs with OID authentication.  Anyone else having issues with this?  Does anyone know if this support will be added in the future?

  • What app are you connecting with?

    Does the workaround in the KB article help?

  • Hi Sumit - thanks for the reply :)   I am using a tool called Microstrategy.  Up to their latest product version (version 10) we could use the Oracle native driver.  However they no longer support this and it has stopped working.  So we are in a bit of a bind.  Microstrategy won't support Oracle's driver and tell us to use the DataDirect one.  The DataDirect one doesn't work for us and Progress tells us to use the native Oracle driver .... thus completing the heartbreaking circle.

    Any ideas?

  • Warren, the latest Oracle 8.0 ODBC driver now supports OID.
