 Oracle 8 on Novell workable?
Hi all,

I would like to have some expert advice on Oracle 8 running on a novell box.
We are going to develop a c/s application using Oracle 8 and VB. Our current
network environment is on Novell. But we've heard that Oracle doesn't work
well with Novell. Is that true? What are the potential problems? Should we
switch to NT before it is too late?

Thanks in advance

 Oracle 8 on Novell workable?

Novell makes a rather poor choice for an application server. I've seen the
tag-line "Think big. Think fast. Think scalable. Oracle 8 on Netware."

The line is missing "Think ABEND" - I'm serious.

Netware makes a great file / print server, but under high utilization for
even
relatively short periods of time an error in CLIB can result in a core cump.
This can be triggered by an abrupt disconnect of a client machine,
especially
if utilizing TLI (transport layer interface) over SPX.

A few years back Novell "fixed" the problem. Unfortunately, the solution was
only applicable to 25% of the customer base.

If you can't guess, my development team and the customers of our product
fell in the other 75%.

As to running Oracle - it was designed for Unix...
