Question Oracle Odbc

Hello all,

i like to install an application program that will interact with
the oracle database.
oracle has been installed in /export/home/oracle
does the new application has to be in the same directory and
if not which one do you recommend?

There is a drive like the ODBC in oracle to glue the database with
the application and how can i set up the settings?

any info/solusions will be appreciated.

many thanks,

What is the application you are using with Oracle? It should have it's own database connection setup. If it does not the two most popular choices would be ODBC or Net8 (aka SQLNet). Net8 is probably more efficient and more flexible but only works with an Oracle DB so if you need your app to talk to another brand of database you would probably have to go back to the slower ODBC.

Most applications that I am aware of do not need to be in the same directory as the Oracle database or even on the same box for that matter. If you know the application, someone may be able to give you more specifics or tips on how to get it done.
