Answer:The Oracle client is the PC-side software such as the Oracle Client, which includes the connectivity prices that allow the PC to communicate with the Oracle server.
The most common issues with Oracle client software are theOracle ClientConfigurationand theOracle Client Security
There are two types of Oracle client software:
Full Oracle client:This contains all of the Oracle client files, both executables and JAR files.
Instant Oracle Client:This contains a smaller footprint, just enough to get a PC connected to Oracle, sqlplus.exe and glogin.exe.
You can download the Oracle client software on the Oracle MOSC of the Oracle web site.
