is there anyone that already tried to connect OpenRPT
to an Oracle database ?
thanks in advance
Yes, Qt does have a native driver for Oracle - called QOCI. See www.trolltech.com.
The files you'd need to work with relate to the login screen in the common directory (login.* and loginOptions.*), which is where the connection with the database is made.
Please let us know what you find.
-Ned, resisting the urge to plug PostgreSQL instead ;-)
Hi, thank you for your answer but I would need more information.
I'm sorry but I'm very newby with OpenRPT and with Qt.
- Where can I obtain QOCI ?
I downloaded Qt (Open Source Edition) : does OpenRpt need it ?
- What is the common directory you're talking about ?
How to configure OpenRpt ?
Thank you very much if you can give me more information.
Happy to help however I can...
The common directory is one of four directories under the root directory when you unpack the openrpt tarball.
I'm not sure if QOCI is provided with the free Qt download - there may be Oracle licensing issues. Your best bet there is one of the Qt mail lists / support forums.
