Clear Communications Between VB , UNIX, and Oracle

Posted on 2002-06-26

I need to create a VB application that will:

1) execute commands in UNIX.
2) retrieve messages/responses from UNIX to show on the VB client
3) execute Oracle commands (including using a SQL loader)
4) retrieve responses including error messages generated to show on the client.

This will probably take some time to provide the detail needed for both Oracle and Unix solutions.  If you need me to explain what I know to help you write a helpful answer just ask.  

I am experienced in VB, UNIX and with SQL in Oracle but have never needed to create such an "interactive" connection as this.  I have just connected to recordsets and run shells looking for no response back.

Thanks in advance!

Using third party controls that are not already provided in the Microsoft or UNIX env. are somewhat of a last resort if solutions that we have already paid for are not available.  If we come around to looking at third party tools yours is the first on the list for review.

Thanks!
