oracle is installed on a linux server. We want to seperate the machines form database and programs. The programs must be on another (linux) server. There is one issue : extproc. From our sql code we call a shared object under linux.

So my question is: "is is possible to put the extproc on another server where is no oracle installed. In this way database and programs are seperated."

Of course, just use Star Wars transporter beams to move the program from the "local" host to the remote host.

A local program needs to initiate ANY/every action!
How do you propose to avoid running any program on the DB server?
Does this restriction preclude running RDBMS itself?

No.

So why do you ask the database to run your program?

Hi BlackSwan.

Thank you for your quick reply. I expected that the RDBMS is the local program thats calls extproc.

I dont know, I just want to deploy my shared library on another server then where the database is running. The most fast and elegant way is to tell the listener where the shared library is (on the another server).

That is a good one. Perhaps this is the issue : I want something that is not possible. maybe the answer is to dont ask the datbase but by another way.

Yes, not possible.
