Oracle Corporation, a leader in the RDBMS field, is one of the two largest software companies in the world (like the other, Microsoft, a small fraction of its revenue comes from hardware product sales). Oracle has a corporate reputation for being combative, high-priced, enterprise-oriented, aggressive in its sales orientation to the point of occasional criminal investigation, and generally successful.

LV: Note that Oracle is now at version 11. Somewhere around version 10, they quit shipping a tcl component, but apparently still have some vestiges of tcl references in some of the materials. This is going to go away...
OMB Plus is a flexible, high-level command line metadata access tool for Oracle Warehouse Builder. OMB Plus is an extension of the Tcl programming language.
escargo 2007-08-21: The issue is muddied somewhat because Oracle also has a Transaction Control Language (so it's also abbreviated as TCL). (See http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B28359_01/appdev.111/b28370/static.htm#BABICCHJ).
EMJ Well, no it doesn't, really. That reference is only a short note about the statements used to control transactions in SQL or PL/SQL, i.e. transaction control language with no capitals! There is no specific language involved. I consider the section heading Transaction Control Language (TCL) Statements to be a documentation bug and I intend to raise it as such - the abbreviation should not be there. This is the only such use of it in the entire Oracle documentation set.
escargo: I certainly don't mind if it's clarified, but searching through Oracle on-line docs for the right Tcl gets just a little harder when there is a clash like that.

The ArsDigita Community System (ACS) is an database backed web collaboration tool originally written for Oracle and also ported to InterBase DBMS, release 4.0, available on Linux at no charge. ACS operates on top of AOLServer, a free HTTP server. Now includes the source for the Oracle driver as well as the nscache, nsrewrite, and nssha1 modules. Source is available and binaries for Redhat Linux and Solaris are available. A Windows version is being developed. Information regarding exporting of Tcl wrappers for OpenLDAP compliant libraries is available on arsdigita, with more info and code on larsdigita. The Ybos web page has new ArsDigita modules for group scoping, event planning and content management. A version based on PostgreSQL is available at benadida. ArsDigita has their own release of AOLserver (v3.2+ad10), as well as Oracle drivers, etc. See the acs-repository URL. Recently ArsDigita moved to a Java based distribution. However, the OpenACS project took over the Tcl based software from what I understand. OpenACS is at version 3.2.5 with a version 4 b2 in testing. Updated: 06/2001 Contact: mailto:[email protected]
