HP UX ODBC Drivers.

Does anyone know of an ODBC product that will run in HP-UX and connect UNIVERSE to ORACLE. Alowing Universe to send SQL to oracle. Weird I know but its what we have.

Re: HP UX ODBC Drivers.

neil,

I used to be a universe (pick) programmer and my company just bought another company that uses Pick for some applications. Anyways, how about perl? I'll check http://www.cpan.org for any universe modules. I Know they have Oracle odbc modules.

Re: HP UX ODBC Drivers.

Why avoid perl? Because your perl cannot deal with DBD-Oracle? Go grab my Oracle prepared perl-5.8.0 binary distribution from https://www.beepz.com/personal/merijn and build DBD-Oracle against it. The build already includes DBI-1.30

Don't forget he need's a PICK UNIVERSE (IBM's/Informix's U2 product) ODBC.

and of course I agree that perl is the best to do what you are trying to do.

Re: HP UX ODBC Drivers.

Avoiding PERL is based on the fact that the Universe app is third party and the developers would like to use the Universe<-->ODBC<-->Oracle root and just pass sql to Oracle.

Re: HP UX ODBC Drivers.

Good reason. AFAIK there is no perl interface to Universe :/

Re: HP UX ODBC Drivers.

Procura, but there is an odbc interface in Universe (U2), so perl should be able to talk between U2 and Oracle.

As a matter of FACT, http://ascentialsoftware.com has such a tool. I eval'ed it last month.

Long time afgter the origional question I know but a folow up. We have migrated to Universe 10.x which came with a JDBC driver so I solved the problem using that.
