#468: Include cx_Oracle in OsGeo4W
Reporter:  medspx       |      Owner:  osgeo4w-dev@…
    Type:  enhancement  |     Status:  new
Priority:  major        |  Component:  Package
 Version:               |   Keywords:  Oracle, cx_Oracle

 I've developped an Oracle enhancement for QGIS dbmanager (the QGIS plugin
 that allows better databases management). For the moment, QGIS dbmanager
 handle only sqlite3 and PostGIS databases but with my code, it will be
 able to connect to Oracle databases.

 QGIS already include an Oracle connector in its core project. But QGIS
 dbmanager is a Python plugin and it needs more than the Oracle Instant
 Client that is already packaged in OsGeo4W. To make Oracle dbmanager work,
 I just need cx_Oracle which is a Python DB API 2.0 module that is able to
 connect to Oracle databases.

 You can find my code on GitHub here: https://github.com/medspx/dbmanager-
 oracle . You can find cx_Oracle at this URL:
 https://pypi.python.org/pypi/cx_Oracle/ . On Pypi you can find already
 binary packaged archives for MS Windows 32 and 64 bits. I just need to
 have the file cx_Oracle.pyd included in Python path.

 When cx_Oracle will be included, I will be able to make a Pull-Request of
 my code to QGIS core project and Oracle dbmanager will be available to
 every MS Windows user out of box.

 Feel free to ask me further questions if you need !

 Thanks for all !
