ctd 1.5.1 ptf 5 and oracle 8

a few days ago i have seen some entries in newsgroup about oracle8 and ctd
1.5.1.
all people said that it's not working.
than i called centura in germany and they said me the ctd 1.5.1 is working
with oracle8.

so my question:
does ctd 1.5.1 work with CLOBS, BLOBS and VARCHAR2(4000).
if centura says that ctd 1.5.1 is working with oracle 8,
i hope they think about these features before they say something like this.

maybe anybody can help me and tell me more about this.

thanks, markus.

Markus,

CTD is only certified with Oracle 7. You can connect to Oracle 8 but only
use Oracle 7 features.

Hi Markus,

we are using CTD1.5.1 PTF4 with Ora 8.i-Server and 8.i-Client and everyting
works fine,
even CLOBS, BLOBS and VARCHAR2(4000).

regards

The statement "CTD is only certified with Oracle 7. You can connect
to Oracle 8 but only use Oracle 7 features" is correct.

This means that it DOES NOT WORK with VARCHAR2(4000).
For some reason it will insert VARCHAR2(4000) without problem but
to get the data back again you have to do the following:

SELECT SUBSTR( my_big_text_column, 1 , 2000 ) ,
SUBSTR( my_big_text_column, 2001 , 2000 )
INTO :lstrFirstHalf , :lstrSecondHalf
FROM blahblahblah ....

You can then glue the two long strings together to get your
data back.

Centura know this full well.
They have never bothered to address the issue.
Maybe their Oracle using clients are not important to them.

Markus,
Check out sourcecode forum for a CLOB solution

Hi Ralf !

How did you manage to do this? I thought it is not possible using normal CTD
SAL-code.

Can you post an example (i.e. INSERT/SELECT) using varchar2(4000) and
CLOBS/BLOBS in forum.sourcecode ?

TIA,
Stefan

Centura Germany also told me that dynamic instantiation of objects is
included in CTD 2.0 PTF 1. I don't believe them any more.

Markus,

Centura Germany gave you indeed *correct* information. In CTD 2.0 you can
create objects dynamically using the "new" keyword. Define a functional
class, define a desctructor for it, instaciate it dynamically, CTD will
maintain the reference count.

Please refer to your CTD documentation for further details (before posting
misleading information).

Ivo,

I guess Markus and others would like to dynamically create visual objects
which in fact is not possible without some tricks (SalCreateWindowEx) and
not very easy to handle.
