Overview - Python Connector for Oracle
Python Connector for Oracle is a connectivity solution for accessing Oracle databases from Python applications. It fully implements the Python DB API 2.0 specification. The connector is distributed as a wheel package for Windows, macOS, and Linux.
The connector enables you to establish a direct connection to Oracle from a Python application via TCP/IP, eliminating the need for the database client libraries. A direct connection increases the speed of data transmission between the application and Oracle database server and streamlines the deployment process since you don't have to distribute any client libraries with the application.
The connector supports encrypted communications using SSL/TLS, SSH tunneling, and HTTP/HTTPS tunneling.
Note: For details on supported OS versions, check the compatibility page of your Python version.
