    Smile Unanswered: Oracle Client Question for VB?

    I am trying to develop an application that connects to multiple oracle
    databases.

    All the applicaiton does is simple select statements.

    My question is about the oracle client.

    We have about 300-400 target computers to install this applicaiton on.

    It seems the oracle client files add up to about 70 megs.

    Which makes the install about 71 megs.

    1 meg for the program and 70 for the Oracle client.

    Is there an better way, a thin-client for VB maybe?

    A company called DataDirect puts out a client for connecting to Oracle that is only 300kb, not 70megs. You would think Oracle would figure out how to make a thin-client for VB. But the DataDirect client costs a lot of money....which we don't have. Any Idea's?

    Thanks,

    -Mike

    Hi
    Are you looking for a intermidiate layer which could redirect your requests from PC to the DB.
    I understand u r using VB on your machine, and JDBC connects to connect to the DB.
    Could you write more on the same.
    Thanx and Regards

    Hello,

    Basically I am looking to create a small application that I can carry around on a floppy disk. This app needs to connect to a couple of Oracle databases. Are there any Oracle clients that VB can use to connect to an Oracle database (that have a very small footprint)?

    We are not using JDBC.

    Any idea's?

    Or do we have to install the 70meg client on all machines.

    Thanks,

    -Mike
