1. I have PB application that connects to oracle. it runs on windows 2000. i want to migrate to windows XP.
It has service name like "ISSWEB". How does the PB executable get teh connection infromation from oracle TNSNAMES.ORA file in the oracle home directory? is it hardcoded in libraries or does it read the connection info from the file every time.
2. I want to switch the file from under oracle home to a network drive i map to. If i change the TNS_ADMIN path would powerbuilder automatially look up that other directory for connection info or we have to recompile the application.
Yes, if you change TNS_ADMIN it should work from any location. Its been a while but I'm pretty sure we put it on a network share at one customer in the past.
