tnsManager just uses a tnsnames.ora file , no database required.

Its a shame Oracle didn't make OID so elegantly simple!

        From Alan's reply, Am I correct in understanding that OID requires an

        oracle database for names resolution. But with respect to tnsManager,

        I do not think it requires a database.
