From the oracle database perspective the first thing to think about is your database level 10.2.0.1 is the base release and has had a ton of maintenance on it. Currently 10.2.0.4 is the highest available patchset although 10.2.0.5 should be out "soon" ... so you might really want to put the 10.2.0.4 patchset on. Read the instructions carefully it needs to go in as both software changes and be applied within the database.
I don't do much at all in the microsoft world but can you get this type of call to work on the biztalk server without going thru biztalk? Like a small C++ app that makes the same type of call? That might help you rule out biztalk ( whatever that is ). Received on Sat Aug 08 2009 - 03:49:47 CDT
