Oracle Integration componet

This issue has been solved. See solution.

This is the first time I've tried to connect to anything other than a SQL database.  I am trying to connect to Oracle to pull RC codes.  I'm not sure what is going on, but I keep getting the error "Connection Test Fail. System.Data.OracleClient requires Oracle client software version 8.1.7 or greater."  Can someone please walk me through the steps to connect to Oracle?

 

Thanks,

John

Which version of Oracle are you trying to connect to?

You need to install the Oracle Client on your computer, and eventually on the server you are going to publish it to. The component requires the client be installed to function.

I have the 11g version installed to connect to our HR system.

Does this mean any computer that uses the web form must also have the Oracle client?

No, only the server hosting the wefom. All the processing is done on the server, so that is the only place the client needs to be.
