Instant Client allows you to run your applications without installing the standard Oracle client or having an ORACLE_HOME. OCI, OCCI, Pro*C, ODBC, and JDBC applications work without modification, while using significantly less disk space than before. Even SQL*Plus can be used with Instant Client. No recompile, no hassle.
I tried with 10.2.0.5 Instant Client. But there is no luck.
Still I am wondering If I install Oracle Instant Client with OUI application working fine.. but if I download only Instant client zip from OTN and unzip ( Set the path and TNS_ADMIN) application not able to connect.
SW Details : Oracle 126.96.36.199 Instant client.zip for windows xp-sp3 -- With its not working
Oracle 188.8.131.52 Client OUI using If I install Instant Client - it is working
ORACLE_HOME = F:\app\oracle\instantclient_11_2 (not required for Oracle Instant Client)
path = F:\app\oracle\instantclient_11_2 (added in path)
TNS_ADMIN = F:\app\oracle\instantclient_11_2
I am unable to execute my OCCI application in a target system.
I have done the following deployment steps in the target system.
1) Downloaded "Oracle Instant Client Basic" and "SQLPlus" packages.
2) Added the unzipped location to the system PATH variable.
3) I am able to connect Oracle Server Database using "sqlplus" command.
While executing my OCCI application, the oracle environment is not creating. It is giving exception with junk error codes.
