Oracle vs Pocket PC connectivity

Hello Experts!

Just would like to inquire whether you know of any 3rd party or built in module for Oracle that allows it to synchronize data to a PocketPC handheld?

I am doing some development on the Pocket PC and would like it very much to be able to connect to an ORACLE database from the PDA.

Thanks! :)

yes there are a couple ... checkout http://pocketpcadvisor.com/doc/11169 to get an overview.

Oracle actually made their Oracle Lite database able to run on pocketpc. So go to http://otn.oracle.com/software/products/lite/content.html to download this lite database. You then get all the software etc necessary to connect to an oracle database from your pocketpc.

iozturk - jinitiator is just a java virtual machine to get java executed ... this has nothing to do with database connectivity!

Cheers, Stefan
