What is it?
cx_OracleTools is a set of Python scripts that handle Oracle database
development tasks in a cross platform manner and improve (in my opinion)
on the tools that are available by default in an Oracle client
installation. Those who use cx_Oracle (a Python interface driver for
Oracle compatible with the DB API) may also be interested in this
project, if only as examples. Binaries are provided for those who do not
have a Python installation.
Where do I get it?
(it may be a few days before the second site is updated)
1) Added new tools ExportColumn and ImportColumn for exporting
(importing) CLOB and BLOB columns from (into) an Oracle database.
2) Include package used for debugging.
3) When using DescribeObject, check if the object with the given name
matches an object in the database, including case. If the object
cannot be found, check for an object in the database by converting
the argument to uppercase. Finally, if the name is not found and is
not qualified with a schema owner, search the public synonyms for
one by that name and describe that object instead.
4) Added feedback to DbDebugger indicating on what database the
connection has been established and on what pipe name the debugger
5) Added optional argument to specify a filename into which to put the
output created by DescribeObject. This is of particular use on
Windows which doesn't handle redirection very well, particularly in
Distinctive Software. Real People.
