Oracle Instant Client

Hello All !

Can we use use Oracle Instant Client (light-weight, freely distributable implementation of an Oracle client) instead of Oracle Standard Client ? Anyone using it ? Any experiences or issues with it ?

Thank you

Re: Oracle Instant Client

Hello imrikm,

To answer your question, it is highly recommendable to use the standard client as the instant client does not have some features that PPM application will need in the future.

The installation could end perfectly, but in the future it could generate issues as I have heard some people complaining about that.

 I hope this helps.

Sincerely,

Jason

Hello Jason,

Thank you for the reply.

Do you have any information what features/functional areas could be affected  negatively in case of using Instant client  ?
(Maybe Deployment mgmt?)

Best Regards,.

Re: Oracle Instant Client

Hello imrikm,

I was checking the compatibility matrix and there are no references to the Oracle instant client, so, i'm pretty sure that is not supported to use with PPM yet.

Checking the differences between the Instant client and the Full client, there are some packages that PPM need to use that are missing on the instant client.

Also, i'm aware of some complaints from customer about this, mostly when performing migrations, upgrades and integrations like documentum in the past.

I hope this helps.

Sincerely,

Jason
