Ahh, the joys of Oracle and .NET and what happens when companies are focused on themselves versus those that use their products.
Anyways, enough philosophical ranting. The solution to all of my Oracle 10g on DAAB problems is shown in this post. It's worth a read if you plan on doing any Oracle work using the DAAB. That being said, they should hopefully have a less painful and more direct work around for the issue instead of me having to recreate every parameter on the likely chance that they had their internal size variable set to zero instead of -1.
So it's on to ASP.NET Providers for me, and possibly looking into converting the security information for several users in the near future. All interesting possibilities indeed.
Let me know if anyone out there in blogger land would like some further information on the issue.
