    Yes 8.1.7 on XP client, no problem - but I've only tried XP prof.

    TOAD uses OCI calls, so you need a minimum client (including the Net stuff) installed. (? ? I wonder if 10g instant client would do ? ?)

    Thanks guys ,

    i could install oracle client , actually there is a patch set 1507768 .

    i was wondering if we need to install oracle client system ata all , when we are able to connect from toad .

    i am basically configuring weblogic to oracle client ...

    Readme for bug number 1507768

    A copy of OUI 1.7.1.10.0 is being provided to be used
    in a work around for installing on Pentium 4 processors.


    1. unzip the patch

    2. unjar the contents

    3. Go to the directory

    .\cd\Disk1\stage\Components\oracle.swd.jre\1.1.7.30/1\DataFiles\Expanded\jre\win32\bin\symcjit.dll

    rename symcjit.dll to symcjit.dll.ori

    4. Invoke OUI and install OUI to disk

    cd ./cd/Disk1/stage/win32/setup.exe

    5. Use the installed OUI to install the RDBMS

    Invoke OUI from the start menu, and install RDBMS software.

    Question

    prakash, is that a question? Perhaps you'd like to rephrase it with a question mark at the end of the bit that needs answering.

    OK ..

    here i rephrase my question

    i have installed oracle forms runtime on my system . and nothing else
    so i am able to connect to forms runtime .. and i have installed toad . even that i sconnecting ..

    but now i whave installed weblogic in my box ..
    it needs oracle drivers .. does this need oracle client to be installed ?? ( ofcourse we can have weblogic thin drivers )
    but for oracle drivers do we need to have oracle client installed . if connection is established isn't that enough ??

    Do you have a JDBC driver installed?

    You could look at This.

    Specifically the section with 4.10.1 Accessing Object Types and Collections through JDBC.
