    Python driver 'invalid syntax' with Python 2.6

    Christos Iraklis Tsatsoulis

      Hi all,


      I am trying out the Python driver for Oracle NoSQL, following the example script from the documentation, but I am getting an 'invalid syntax' error when trying to import the necessary modules in Python 2.6:


      [oracle@bigdatalite ~]$ python

      Python 2.6.6 (r266:84292, Aug 18 2016, 08:36:59)

      [GCC 4.4.7 20120313 (Red Hat 4.4.7-17)] on linux2

      Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

      >>> from nosqldb import ConnectionException

      Traceback (most recent call last):

        File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>

        File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/nosqldb/__init__.py", line 53, in <module>

          from nosqldb import Consistency

        File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/nosqldb/nosqldb.py", line 1289

          _time_consistency_allowed_keys = {ONDB_PERMISSIBLE_LAG, ONDB_TIMEOUT}


      SyntaxError: invalid syntax


      with the exact same error when trying to import Factory & StoreConfig.


      I have successfully installed the nosqldb 4.3.10 Python package using pip.


      The error does not appear in Python 2.7.6.


      According to the documentation, the nosqldb Python package is compatible with both Python 2.6 & 2.7.


      Any ideas?


      Many thanks in advance.
