I need information and feedback on the different aspects of implimenting a
based application with an existing oracle database server. If I
wanted to write my front end in ASP as opposed to Cold Fusion, is the
- Use an NT server with IIS and connect to a Unix Oracle server?
- Create DSNs from my ASP application to my Oracle servers
- Convert my Unix Oracle data to Windows NT Oracle.
What are the benefits to leaving my database in Oracle as opposed to
migrating it to Microsoft SQL Server (besides the simple fact that you
all loathe Microsoft). I realize Oracle is seriously powerful and
since my company has been heading in that direction for some time, I
would like to keep the advantage of all the Oracle knowledge we have.
I'm just hoping someone will write and tell me that I can set up a
connection to my Unix Oracle servers through ODBC (or something
similar) with as much ease as I can with my MS-SQL servers. This
would be HUGE cost savings and prove that Oracle can co-exist with
whatever platform we will use in the future. We're trying to push to
keep Oracle as a primary tool and any information you can provide
would be appreciated very much.
