I wants to connect my oracle database using JDBC and the jdbc driver shipped with Oracle 8.
In order to improve performance, I want to use ipc connection.
I have a few questions here:
1. Does Thin drivers work with IPC?
2. I tested with oci8 drivers, it worked. However I have to set the environment variables ORACLE_HOME, ORACLE_SID and LD_LIABRARY_PATH. Is there a way that I don't have to setup these as environment variables?
Or can I set these programmatically?
Thanks in advance,
I agree. Here's the link:
