how to install for oracle on windows 7

Tudor Girba-2
Hi,

I would like to give DBXTalk a try and install it for an Oracle DB on
Windows 7. I tried to look for documentation, but the page from:
http://dbxtalk.smallworks.com.ar/pier/Documentation/compiling-and-installing-opendbx-native-driver

seems to be private (I guess it's unintentional).

Could you point me to some directions on how to install the driver?

Cheers,
Doru

Now, it is is not private, just not yet done ;)
We are porting/cleaning/improving the doc from the previous SqueakDBX website.
Maybe these links help:

http://squeakdbx.smallworks.com.ar/Compiling%20and%20installing%20OpenDBX
http://squeakdbx.smallworks.com.ar/Oracle%20for%20Win

In summary, what you need is to install the oracle client library (C library) in 32 bits. Then install OpenDBX dlls which you can find in: http://www.linuxnetworks.de/doc/index.php/OpenDBX/Download#Windows_DLLs. And finally install ConfigurationOfOpenDBXDriver.
Then be sure to use latest Cog (some old Cog vms have problem with FFI).

Let us know

I have done that: I installed the 11gR2 client.

Where do I put the DLLs?

I did that already as well.

Excellent.

Well...you are entering to the black magic of Windows dll handiling...a.k.a as DLL hell ;)
The DLL MUST be findable by the normal procedure of finding shared libraries of the OS so that it can be found by FFI. In Windows, there is an order in which dlls are searched (because you can even have the same dll in different places). First it starts in the same place where the "sender" (the guy who is searching the library, in this case cog vm) is. So in this case it means putting the dlls in the same directory where you have the CogVM executable. The windows also searches in $PATH and in c:/windows/system32 or something like that. I don't remember exactly the order, but my recommendation is to include them together with the VM.

Hmm, windows documents the order of library loading in here:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms682586%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

(see section Standard Search Order for Desktop Application)

What I don't know is if FFI is using the standard loading or not, or if it is using any special flag... :/

Excellent. I got the connection going. It took a while. I will follow
with some more remarks.

For archive purposes, I did the following:

1. Use Pharo 1.3 and CogWin (from Eliot) version 2522

2. Load DBXTalk
Gofer it
    squeaksource: 'MetacelloRepository';
    package: 'ConfigurationOfOpenDBXDriver';
    load.

(((Smalltalk at: #ConfigurationOfOpenDBXDriver)
    perform: #project)
        perform: #version: with: #stable)
            load

3. Download OpenDBX:
http://linuxnetworks.de/opendbx/download/opendbx-1.4.5_win32.zip

4. place the contents of the archive in the folder where the VM was
\Cogwin
  Croquet.exe
  ...
  libopendbx-1.dll
  libopendbxplus-1.dll
  \opendbx
    ...*.dll

4. Install the Oracle client
(I had it already, but you should be able to install if from
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/enterprise-edition/downloads/112010-win32soft-098987.html)

Cheers,
Doru

Thanks Doru. Good knows then :)
We will add this to the website.
