…  

Based on previous experiences: you can initially test your work using driver U7.1 against 12c R2; it should work.
Then you should ask ULab to accelerate verification process of U7.1 driver against the new 12c R2 version: a new U7.2 driver version will probably be released.

Regards,
Gianni

We are working on this at the moment. 

Looks like we will deliver a u7.2 driver based on the Oracle 12.2 client libraries. Based on feedback we had from a customer, the u7.1 driver won’t work, although I do not know the exact combination they tried. 

Generally Oracle has quite a liberal ‘mix and match’ policy when it comes to their client library versions and database server versions. It could be that the current u7.1 driver, connected to the Oracle 12c (12.1) client libraries and then connected to the Oracle 12.2 (the latest) will work. This would be Oracle supporting this combination, our driver will think it’s Oracle 12.1. 

Oracle 12.2 will start in Uniface 10.3 (aiming June/July) and Uniface 9.7.04. (May/June) for some platforms. (Redhat Linux and Solaris) 

Other platforms (SuSE, CentOS, Windows, AIX) will probably be in Uniface 9.7.05 (planning October) and we need to decide how we deliver with Uniface 10.3x. (factors like cloud, containers, installers have a bearing on this).

This is all based on the assumption further platforms have been made available by Oracle by that time.

I was meaning to initially use this configuration…

Just to confirm, it will be a new u7.2 driver for Oracle 12.2 support.

As an update, I think we will be lucky to get Uniface 9.7.04 delivered in May, more likely to be June/July. 

So you know what’s happened, we’ve lost some resources due to some unexpected circumstances.

Our cloud work had some challenges in regards to getting the testing/verification suite completed. With an eye on the future, we had already decided not to cut any corners. What we didn’t anticipate was that some corners that were cut in the past (distant past) have come back to haunt us. 

Uniface 9.7.04 won’t include Oracle support on the cloud platforms. We will add those later, aiming on Uniface 9.7.04, before Uniface 9.7.05. 

We’ll blog about what we’ve done to get to put cloud on the PAM, it’s been challenging, but the outcomes will be good, not only because it is listed, but better testing and we’ve uncovered and fixed a few product issues on the way which the same tests had not uncovered on-premise which is interesting.
