Oracle Wire Protocol ODBC Driver

  1. The Progress DataDirect Connect for ODBC Oracle Wire Protocol driver connects to Oracle servers without the need for any Oracle networking software. The driver is optimized to communicate directly and efficiently with Oracle servers using the Oracle server wire protocol.
  2. The Progress DataDirect Connect for ODBC Oracle Wire Protocol driver fully supports all Oracle systems including Oracle 8.1.5 and higher from a single wire protocol ODBC driver.
  3. The Progress DataDirect Connect for ODBC Oracle Wire Protocol driver optimizes forward-only cursors to pre-fetch multiple records in compact formats that are not available using OCI. These optimizations reduce network traffic and improve performance when retrieving data from the database. Testing with industry and customer benchmarks shows that the Progress DataDirect driver is the fastest Oracle driver in the marketplace when retrieving results from SELECT statements.
  4. The Progress DataDirect Connect for ODBC Oracle Wire Protocol driver is highly optimized for applications that use LOB data. How much time an ODBC driver spends sending and retrieving packets over the network determines how fast the driver can be. LOB data is inherently very taxing on the network in that large amounts of data must be transferred between the driver and the Oracle server. The DataDirect Technologies driver uses special compression techniques unavailable to OCI applications when transferring LOB data to and from the Oracle server.
  5. The Progress DataDirect Connect for ODBC Oracle Wire Protocol driver is highly optimized for applications that use PL/SQL stored procedures. For these types of applications, the Progress DataDirect driver has performance advantages from 75% to 100% faster than competitive drivers in benchmarks run inside the Progress DataDirect development labs.
