Specific improvements in ROracle 1.1-1 include:
- Lossless database reads: consistent accuracy for database read results
- Performance improvements: faster database read and write operations
- Simplified installation: Oracle Instant Client now bundled on Windows, Instant or full Oracle Client on Linux
ROracle uses the Oracle Call Interface (OCI) libraries to handle the database connections, providing a high-performance, native C-language interface to the Oracle Database. ROracle 1.1-1 is supported for R versions 2.12 through 2.13, and with Oracle Instant Client and Oracle Database Client versions 10.2 through 11.2, both 32 and 64-bit running Linux and Windows.
We think ROracle 1.1-1 is a great step forward, allowing users to build high performance and efficient R applications using Oracle Database. Whether you are upgrading your existing interface or using it for the first time, ROracle 1.1-1 is ready for download.. If you have any questions or comments please post on the Oracle R discussion forum. We'd love to hear from you!
