I have problems connection to an oracle database using dbi.
machine: debian lenny,
ruby: ruby 1.8.7 (2008-08-11 patchlevel 72)
Using several descriptions on internet I have downloaded
ruby-oci8-1.0.3.tar and installed it.
The result is that I can open a database using a OCI8 object, but not
using a DBI object. I understood that the way to use DBI is by
installing that package.
Following a test script and its output. Can someone tell me what could
be wrong? Do I need to install another package?
thanks in advance, Ruud
connection = OCI8.new( ‘user’, ‘pwd’, ‘database’)
cursor = connection.exec(‘select id, description, name from role’)
while r = cursor.fetch()
puts “and now using DBI”
db = DBI.connect(‘DBI:OCI8:database’, ‘user’, ‘pwd’)
sql = “select id from role”
dbh.select_all(sql) do | row |
and now using DBI
