How to connect oracle DB from salesforce


 We have a requirement to integrate salesforce with oracle DB. We need the the ability to create, read, edit and delete on the oracle DB and data should be stored in oracle DB from salesforce.

 We can use lightening connect to create, read, edit and delete data from and into an external system using any of these adapters.
A.    OData 2.0 adapter or OData 4.0 adapter
B.    Salesforce adapter
C.    Custom adapter created via Apex

***But we read from blogs and lighting connect documentation that there are limitations/challenges in using lightining connect for write/delete/update to external system.

We have any ODBC/JDBC kind of plug ins to connect from salesforce to Oracle DB?. Please provide any information  or any other options on how can we connect salesforce to oracle DB other then lightning connect adapters.

SF connect is read/write. What limits are you reading about?

Btw, this is a nice Salesforce/Oracle integration webinar with Appirio and DataDirect who build Salesforce ODBC/JDBC drivers:

Hi Naveen,

Did you successfully manage to connect Salesforce to an Orcalce database?
If so, how did you do it?
