I am using a linux machine and I want to retrieve data from an Oracle database (on a unix machine) in the same network. But I don't have any Pro C. Can anyone give me any idea what can I do on this linux machine to retrieve data from the database? How can I use C or Java to access the database on another machine?
Thank you!
