Why Python has no equivalent of JDBC of Java?
Exactly right. Im not sure why Marco is wondering about native drivers not
to be a part of python module (for oracle).
Id be very unhappy, if a python module come with a native drivers for
something as complex as a database.
Cx guys gave you the power to install what and how your project requires.
In Microsoft case .. that would be a different discussion :)
On a flip side, if you dont need oracle specific features, then maybe u
should use something basic for data storage. //but thats a different
