I think you are looking for what I'm looking for. :) I don't think there
are any free client for Oracle since all lib connecting to oracle is
not free (but I could be wrong ). So even just client you will need to
install oracle no matter work. (jdbc thin client is possible to connect
with out install in oracle ) But it is still not free.
Anyway, I would like to see some package like my tool ( even in contrib )
will able to use other non-free software also. That's my question, will
that against the debian police?
