I upgraded from the 3.0.1 version of EAS to 3.5. That in itself was a small
nightmare. Now I mostly have it running except that I can no longer get the
Connection Cache working. I am trying to connect to Oracle 7.3. I have
deleted and recreated the cache many times. I have uninstalled and
installed Jaguar 3.5 many times. I am SURE I have all parameters set up
correctly and I am pretty sure my PATH and CLASSPATH are correct. Each time
I try to ping the error message is "The ping operation did not complete
successfully. Could not find the specified connection cache". I have a
case open with Sybase. So far they say they can't test it because they
don't have Oracle 7 available. This used to work with EAS 3.0.1. Has
anyone had a conn cache working with 3.5 going to Oracle 7.3? I am on NT4
service pack 5. Anybody have any ideas what could be wrong?

I just had the same thing happen to me this morning.
I uninstalled the Oracle 8.0.5 client and installed the Oracle 8i client and
can't seem to establish a db connection cache via the OCI.dll client. I'm
getting the same error. I noticed that my Repository\ConnCache folder is
empty, however the caches are visible in the Jag Manager(must be stored
somewhere else). I know the Oracle client gets a bad wrap, but this is
really bad. I verified my path and everything looks fine. I'm wondering if
I will have to uninstall Jaguar 3.5 and reinstall. For now, I'm using the
ODBC connection option and it has been advised to try the JDBC with the
Oracle Thin Client. Give ODBC or JDBC a try.

Hi,

I have the same problem as you guys. I'm running oracle 8i also and I also
noticed that the ConnCache lib it empty.
Jaguar also complains about:
Mar 09 00:04:07 2000: AFLIB Message: 18011/11/0: DLL lookup for
'af_dll_lookup()' failed, OS Message: 'xa80.dll'
even though that file exists in my path.

Best Regards,
Darko

The xa80.dll comes with OCI 8.0.5. I suspect you have a later version of OCI
that does not include xa80.dll. The Jaguar connection cache driver dll was
written to work with OCI 8.0.5.
