The Oracle R Advanced Analytics team
is happy to announce the release of the ROracle 1.1-1 package on the
Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN).  We’ve rebuilt ROracle from the
ground up, working hard to fix bugs and add optimizations. The new
version introduces key improvements for interfacing with Oracle Database
from open-source R.

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!
