Hello,
I"m considering to transfer project base on paradox database 2 oracle.

My question : on paradox , when our Client had some problem i ask them to zip the data and send it to me by email, does this option exist also with Oracle ?
Does my clients can zip oracle database and send it to me ? how ?

thank u
Asi

no, not possible, but you could dump out the database-contetnt into a flat-file (only possible, if there are no blobs) and import (load) this into your oracle-server (which you must have then)

Hi asi,

Attension! Oracle is a havy weight software, and to learn Oracle is very similar to learn different operating system and all of its environment. Be sure that you really need Oracle after using Paradox. It is something like to drive an aircraft after driving bicycle. If you are don't going to write corporation-wide, city-wide or country-wide project, then avoid of Oracle.

I use both of them, Oracle and Interbase.
They are intended for different tasks.
I'm sure that all of them is the best of all.

We use hammer for a nail, and pile-press-machine for a pile, but never on the contrary, right?

this may your opinion, but atleast i work over three years with both systems and interbase is still a child compared to oracle

but this question is not pointed in any case to interbase

seems to be outdated,
and just not objective
(because disadvantages by oracle are explained well,
bot nothing about disadvantges by interbease is mentioned)

about the others,
well third party tools
may raise the comfort of interbase

about subselects,
i said in SOME CASES are
subselects in interbase not possible
whereas it is possible in oracle

well, like interbase as well as oracle,
-interbase is more handy than oracle
-interbase is good enough for mostly database-apps
-and interbase is just not so expensive

but i work also on projects,
which has some terrabytes on data to handle,
and there the performance of interbase sucks.

also oracle has a maintainance support
(did interbase has such?)

well, may i also so diplomatic as igor,
and say both are good databases
