Subject Re: OCI vs THIN
Date Tue, 04 Dec 2007 03:55:42 GMT
We evaluated OCI driver ourselves and found that it has only one benefit 
- external OPS$ account support. Otherwise THIN driver requires less 
maintenance, less installation and it is often faster, because it brings 
some datatypes inline (LONG, if I am not mistaken).
