Hi Gene,

OID is a bear, and if all you want to do is use it for a centralized repository for service name resolution, I strongly recommend you look at:

It will take about 30 minutes to set up, tops. It doesn't even require installation of an Oracle client.

I've been running it in all environments (dev, preprod, and prod) for over a year. No problems, no hiccups, no crashes.

I love it.

Hope that helps,

Hello everybody:

Can anyone point me to a document/article/book explaining how to use OID to
resolve service names instead of tnsnames.ora?

thank you
