 "Client-less" database connections
We're currently developing a system using PowerBuilder and Oracle 7 and
8.

One of the major problems we have is the rollout of the Oracle client
software to our user's PCs,  particularly as they are spread over a
large number of countries.

Does anyone know of any product available which can provide an Oracle
connection (ODBC or otherwise) which does not need to be installed on
the client PC.

Thanks

How about,

o client using a web browser (java applet is your client GUI)
o jdbc to connect to the database
o oracle server.
o web server (applet jar file)

it means that your client only require a web browser and a url
to talk to the database.

how does that sound ?
