Replacing Easysoft Oracle driver with Oracle instant client

Posted in C/C++ LANGUAGE, PROGRAMMING, WEBBLOG by edeguzman on March 13, 2012

  I’ve decided to create an article on the several things that I’ve done to replace the Easysoft Oracle driver with the Oracle instant client because I did not found any article related to this topic (I might save someone’s time). For a minute I thought that this activity we’ll involved several man-dates to accomplish this activity, however it turn out to be just several man-hours but of course not involving build environment for our application.

The Easysoft  Oracle driver is really a good ODBC driver but the problem you have to pay for the license.  This is the reason we have to find an alternative that can also work harmoniously with unixODBC for the reason we want to cut cost. Good thing that Oracle finally provide there own ODBC driver that can work with unixODBC and it’s FREE!
