Hi, Right now DBD::Oracle use oracle instant client.This drivers has many limitations for some countries and it has some problems with GPL license[0]. Would be great if DBD::Oracle replaces the usage of oracle instant client in a future release by ocilib[1]. Furthermore would be an advantage have a complete open source perl driver. [0] http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/licenses/instant-client-lic-152016.html [1] http://orclib.sourceforge.net/ Thank you so much for your attention. Kind regards, -- Julián Moreno Patiño .''`.

Not true. You can use Instant client or a full Oracle install. Show quoted text

I could just be missing the point entirely with this but doesn't ocilib actually require building against an Oracle instant client or Oracle install so you are not avoiding the use of Oracle code at all. I don't use ocilib but I guessed this from: http://orclib.sourceforge.net/doc/html/group__g__install.html Check the shared library path environment variable (LD_LIBRARY_PATH, LD_PATH, ...): it must include $ORACLE_HOME\[lib|lib32|lib64] it must include the path where OCILIB has been installed (by example, typically /usr/local/lib under Linux) List of available options: --with-oracle-import=(linkage|runtime) --with-oracle-charset=(ansi|wide|mixed) (old mode 'unicode' mapped to 'wide') --with-oracle-home=(custom oracle regular client directory) --with-oracle-headers-path=(oracle header files directory) --with-oracle-lib-path=(oracle shared lib directory) --with-oracle-lib-name=(oracle shared lib name) --with-custom-loader=(linker flag telling the linker which loader to use when loading dynamically at runtime Oracle shared libs. This option must be provide if the platform does not use the default loader flag '-ldl') and the --with-oracle-import is set to 'runtime' Note: --with-oracle-headers-path and --with-oracle-lib-path are meant to be used with Instant client only but can used for regular client of libs and headers are not located in usual folders Note: If the Oracle OCI linkage mode is set to 'linkage' (default) and no Oracle lib path is provided, OCILIB configure script tries to located the Oracle library folder following this sequence : $ORACLE_HOME/lib32 (32 bits libs) $ORACLE_HOME/lib (32 or 64 bits libs) $ORACLE_HOME/lib64 (64 bits libs) Oracle Instant Client Support OCILIB supports Oracle Instant Client. On Microsoft Windows, there is no difference between using a regular Oracle client and an Instant Client with OCILIB On Unix-like systems, the Instant Client is divided in different packages. Public headers and shared libs are not part of the same package. So, you must provide the following options to the configure command: with-oracle-headers-path: location the public header files with-oracle-lib-path: location the oracle shared lib If your instant client package containing the shared libs does not have a symbolic link 'libclntsh.[shared lib extension]' to the fully qualified shared lib real name, you must create it: Example on Linux: $ ln -s $ORALIBPATH/libclntsh.so.10.1 $ORALIBPATH/libclntsh.so The above infers to me that ocilib builds against Oracle libraries, If this is correct you are still using Oracle libraries so any license issues still exist. If I'm wrong and you are really saying ocilib is a standalone library implementing Oracle Call Interface API without Oracle OCI libraries then please let me know but as far as I can see it is a wrapper around OCI, not a replacement for OCI.
