DBD::Oracle 1.23 Released

DBD::Oracle (1.23) has been released. DBD::Oracle is the Perl module that works with the DBI module to provide access to Oracle databases. It is maintained by me, John Scoles, under the auspices of The Pythian Group as open source/free software. This release is largely a maintenance release that fixes a number of bugs. New stuff includes the ability to fetch Oracle embedded types directly into an oracle object; a big thank you goes out to Tomas Pokorny for that patch.

Which DBD::Oracle Version is for Me?

I hope this little table will help you choose which version of DBD::Oracle is right for you. As there are dozens and dozens of different versions of Oracle’s clients, I did not bother to list any of them, just the major release versions of Oracle that are out there.

There seems to be a bug in DBD::Oracle’s execute_array when working with 11g. If you tell DBD::Oracle to autocommit, it seems that in 11g this commit will not take place when an error occurs during the processing of one of the tuples that you passed into execute_array. I included the tables, code and workaround in this post.
