Module Name: oracleBrowse
Description: Plug in for PythonCard application dbBrowse to provide Oracle specific functionality

Constant/configuration values are currently maintained in the source code. If we are to optimise this application they should be split into seperate configuration files (as per PythonCard/Webware style guidelines)

The structure of this module should be replicated for different RDBMS so that they can be interchanged by dbBrowse - hopefully.

The only manipulation to data is to format date values as DD-Mon-YYYY

This module currently relies on cx_Oracle to access Oracle. It should be expanded to use other DB-API compatible access modules.

04-Apr-2002 Changed the format of columnDefs that is passed from the db handler modules back to dbBrowser in the getColumns method. This actually makes the code in this module simpler, which must be a good thing
