New Release of ROracle posted to CRAN

April 4, 2012

(This article was first published on Oracle R Enterprise, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

Oracle recently updated ROracle to version 1.1-2 on CRAN with enhancements and bug fixes. The major enhancements include the introduction of support for Oracle Wallet Manager and datetime and interval types. 

Oracle Wallet support in ROracle allows users to manage public key security from the client R session. Oracle Wallet allows passwords to be stored and read by Oracle Database, allowing safe storage of database login credentials. In addition, we added support for datetime and interval types when selecting data, which expands ROracle’s support for date data. 

See the ROracle NEWS for the complete list of updates.

We encourage ROracle users to post questions and provide feedback on the Oracle R Forum.

In addition to being a high performance database interface to Oracle Database from R for general use, ROracle supports database access for Oracle R Enterprise.
