  • Aug 20, 2008 - Release of our bugfix.  Prevents the connection from hanging when the Oracle connection goes down -- reestablishes the connection instead.
  • Nov 7, 2008 - The management interface now correctly reports the connection as open when it was automatically reopened.

Description

ZcxOracleDA is a Zope Database Adaptor for cx_Oracle. It's currently only been tested with Zope 2.7 and above with cx_Oracle 4.3.1 and above. The original is written by Andy Hird.

The original suffered from a problem. If the Oracle connection went down and came back up, the ZcxOracleDA would continue to attempt to communicate with the stale connection.

We've made modifications that allow it to detect when a connection is stale, and reestablish it.
