We are using couple public application using king fdo with oracle. We have
one schema and its working ok.  The new fdo with 2009 is slower than earlier
Harris: thanks for your response. Please look into it really soon as these
applications are public and will need speed to support it
Secondly the new fdo also does not work with Autodesk map 3d. It crashes the
when you try to connect to oracle
