Hi All,

I am planning to distribute ojdbc14.jar with a commercial mobile application to the public.

I have gone through the license & FAQ,
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/enterprise-edition/jdbc-faq-090281.html#02_12

But I am not able to get anything concrete.

If someone familiar with this process, can you please clarify me.

Thanks in Advance.

Thanks
Rajesh

just to make sure, you are not wanting to put the jar on the mobile device, but on the server of your customers?

Hi Wendy,

Thanks for your interest.

I want to include the jar with my mobile application and distribute. So users downloading my mobile applications will also download ojdbc14.jar.
Basically it will enable the mobile users to access a oracle database directly. (I have considered the security & other aspects as well )
I dont have any application servers.

Any help/suggestion is greatly appreciated.


Thanks
Rajesh

How many users using your application at once do you expect?

Hi Martin,

May be 10000 to 20000 .Actually i don't about the market value of this app

Its nothing but kind of oracle remote client application for mobile which will work with a VPN settings.

Thanks
Rajesh

Have you tried testing this many connections to your database? Or even a realistic number based on the number of users you expect to connect simultaneously? I think you're in for a nasty surprise!

You say "I have considered the security & other aspects as well" but I think you need to radically re-think your approach here.

Hi Chris,


Actually users are not going to connect to my database.

This App is just the product like DBVisualizer or Toad but for Mobile Device. Its a Remote Client for Oracle.
The app will provide facilities for connecting to their corporate database using VPN.

Using this App users can connect to their own database and do some operations on the go.

I developed a POC and its working using ojdbc14.jar. But i want to get some clarification on distributing this jar.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Rajesh
