Database Adapter in Oarcle ICS(Integration Cloud Service)

In this blog, we are gonna to explain  Oracle database adapter capabilities and how to connect Oracle Database that resides in on-premises network.

Oracle Database Adapter capabilities

The Oracle Database Adapter enables us to integrate the Oracle database residing behind the firewall of on-premises environment with Oracle Integration Cloud Service through use of the on-premises connectivity agent. We can also integrate Oracle database residing on the public cloud and don't require Agent in the picture.

The Oracle Database Adapter provides the following capabilities:
  • Invocation of stored procedures.
  • Support for non-JDBC (PL/SQL) datatypes in outbound invocations of stored procedures.
  • Support  of DML statements and SQL queries: Select, Insert, Update, and Delete.
  • Support for generating XSD from PureSQL. 
  • Polling for new and updated records for processing in the Oracle database. 
  • The Oracle Database Adapter supports distributed polling and multithreading. 
  • Support for a logical delete polling strategy. 
  • Support for database fault mapping

  • Click on Configure Connectivity, enter below information and click OK button
    • Host: Database host or IP

    IO Error: The Network Adapter could not establish the connection

    1. Hi,

      Even i have never tried with cloud database. However would like to ask few questions:

      1) Which database you are trying to connect ?
      2) R you able to connect the database with some client(SQL developer)

      Errors simply says that, your db is not reachable to ICS.


      1) Please try to put hostname and IP of database one by one
      2) Try to enter SID and service name one by one


    2. Were you able to resolve this? I am facing same exact issue - no agent, using AWS RDS - cloud instance of SQL Server express.
