announce: OraPIG (python wrappers for Oracle)

P: n/a
I'm pleased to announce the initial release of OraPIG,
the Oracle Python Interface Generator.

OraPIG generates Python wrapper classes for Oracle packages.

If you use Oracle and Python, this might be a pretty useful
package for you. Download it and let us know what
you think!


Download and docs:


Quick Example: Suppose you have a package called tiny
with a single procedure p:

create or replace package tiny
procedure p(x in number);
end tiny;

OraPIG will generate a wrapper class that will allow you to
use the package without having to use the various database
calls. Instead, the wrapper class will be instantiated and
called just like any other Python class:

class Tiny:
def __init__(self,curs): # instantiate class with a cursor
def p(self,x): # call procedure p(x)

Here's how it's used:

import cx_Oracle
import tiny
conn = cx_Oracle.connect('scott/tiger')
curs = conn.cursor()

mytiny = tiny.Tiny(curs)
mytiny.p(2) # call a procedure
curs.commit() # not done automatically
