Oracle on Linux

Hi,

I'm considering a solution similar to yours, but am new to Oracle so I have
some questions.
Has anybody tried to implement al Erlang port using ODBC under Windows? What
about its performance?
And about the implementation using OCI, is it easy to work with it? How
faster is it than ODBC? Did you implement some kind of connection pooling
with it? Or is it maybe provided by the API?
Thanks,
    Sebastian-
