    Oracle and the Web

    My company is interested in developing a web application using an Oracle DB. What language(s) are used to converse between an Oracle DB and a website? Are there any good links, tutorials, etc. and books that would be helpful in going this route? Genreal information on the topic would be nice too. I know this sounds vague, but I am trying to see how feasible this would be and if I could learn it. Thanks all.

    As long as you can set the connection through ODBC or JDBC, you should be able to work with any programming language. I know Java, JSP, ASP and Coldfusion will work. I'm assuming PHP will too...

    I work for a company that serves about 300,000 dynamic pages per week using several Oracle DBs in different global regions.

    The site is currently COM/ASP driven, but we're in the process of moving to .NET. As was mentioned in the previous post, it doesn't matter what programming languge you plan to use to access the data as long as the language and database both support ODBC.

    One great advantage of using Oracle is in their support of hierarchical data structures through the CONNECT BY and START WITH statements. SQLServer has nothing that is similar (yet).

    Good luck with the install - repost if you have any specific questions. I'll do my best to check back and help out as much as I can.
