Well if they can "hack" at it with Perl it's not really the tool that's the problem and preventing access to the tool is not a solution.

One problem I see with giving this away "free" is that you will be supplying a tool that allows you to extract data from the database, bypassing all inbuilt security. A BIG "no no". I suppose that also applies to this kind of tool even under a paid license structure.

How many of you would shout at Cool-Tools for "giving away" a tool such as this, that your developers can use to "hack" your data files? ;)

Nice idea in concept - huge liability it reality.

  1. it's Field Support not Tech Support that has it
  2. Oracle does not sell nor does it release the code for DUL. A field support technician comes to your site, installs it, runs it and removes it. You pay a fee for this. when I used it (in '98), the fee was $5k per every 8 hour period, with a minimum of $10K as the starting fee.
