Does CardExchange support Oracle TNS names? #34
Question: Can I connect to an Oracle database using TNS names instead of specifying the server, the port and the database name?

Answer: Yes you can. It's a kind of hidden feature in CardExchange. Simply type "TNS" in the server input box, specify an arbitrary port number and type the TNS name in the database box.

Actually, if the Oracle database is using load balancing over several database servers, you have to use TNS names, as you don't know in advance to which server you are going to connect.
