Z Solid Database Adapter
Z Solid DA
This is the Z Solid database adapter product for the Z Object Publishing Environment.
*** IMPORTANT ***
This product is distributed as a NON-BINARY release!
This product requires a compiled Python extension that is NOT included as a binary with this release. You must build or install the required extensions using the instructions below before the product will work properly!
The Z Solid database adapter uses a Solid (i.e. ODBC) extension module, sql. Before using the Z Solid Database Adapter, you must build the sql extension from the sources included in the Z Solid Database Adapter distribution.
The source files and associated files required to build the required Solid module are included in this product distribution. Follow the steps below to build the extension on UNIX platforms. Note that the included files do not support building on win32 platforms at this time.
The extension module, sql.c, was generated using the Simplified Wrapper and Interface Generator (SWIG). If you encounter problems building the extension module, you might try re-running swig. Assuming that you have swig installed, you can re-swig the module with the command:
swig -python -o sql.c sql.i
The connection string used for Z Solid Database Connection consists of:
The user ID and password may not contain spaces. For example, a connection string to connect to a server name of "upipe solid" with user ID "jim" and password "spam" would be:
upipe solid jim spam
The server name may be a network name, such as
[Data Sources] demo=upipe solid, Default DB at tarzan.digicool.com
Note, however, that to use logical data source names, it is necessary to set the SOLIDDIR environment variable to the location of the solid database being used in your Zope PCGI resource file, as in:
Setting this variable may be necessary for other reasons, depending on how Solid is configured on your system.
