To get files you need to have Subversion (SVN) client installed on
your machine. On modern linux you should already have it, otherwise
it should be availaible from system repositories. Home page is
To check if you have Subversion type in the console:


If you have SVN client then simply type:

"svn checkout
https://dcoracle2da.googlecode.com/svn/tags/1.0RC1 DCOracle2"

This will get files from googlecode into folder named 'DCOracle2'.

The addres above is to most current version I have although there may
still be some errors. This version uses SQLAlchemy pool so if you want
to use this with Zope you'll need to install SQLAlchemy from
sqlalchemy.org too. See INSTALL file.

Currently I had not much time to do something with this project,
but I'll try to make it cleaner soon, write some tests (so far I was
not able to run original tests...) and to put this into official Zope

Thanks for this info. We have this DCOracle2 compiled with Oracle10 on
RedHatEnterprise 4. Unfortunatelly I have no Solaris. But would be nice
if you can check dco2.c from this version on Solaris machine. At last
I'll add a note about this Solaris issue into INSTALL file.
