Oracle Database ODBC for Windows Server 2003 x64
Posted on 2008-10-29
I'd like to have a connection to Oracle database (8.1.7 on Solaris) and at the moment I've got Atlassian Jira which needs to be connected to Oracle DB on my Win Server 2k3 x64.
the question is, do i have to install the Oracle Client 10g R2 10.204) x64 on that server so that i can have ODBC connectivity ?
it's quite big around 714 MB for the installation, is there any other alternative to make the connection possible without installing the Oracle Client ?
