DCOracle2 is Zope Corporation's second generation of its python
bindings for Oracle.  DCOracle2 is written to use the OCI 8 API,
not the OCI 7 API that DCOracle uses, giving DCOracle2
compatibility with more advanced features in newer generations
of the Oracle software.


DCOracle2 Beta 5 is now released, available at
in ZIP and tar.gz formats.  Beta 5 is a unified source/binary
distribution; the 'install.py' script will attempt to copy the
proper binary in place for execution on your system.


  o  DCOracle2 source

  o  DCOracle2 binaries for Oracle 8i (Windows,  Solaris, Linux)

  o  ZOracleDA (the Zope Database Adapter)

  o  DCOracleStorage (an Oracle Storage for Zope)


After unpacking, either run 'install.py' to copy an appropriate
binary file from the binaries directory to the DCOracle2
directory, or type 'make' to attempt to make a new binary (unix

For use as ZOracleDA, copy the DCO2 directory to
    {ZOPE ROOT}/lib/python/Products/ZOracleDA
(renaming the directory from DCO2 to ZOracleDA).
