Oracle Instant Client enables applications to connect to a local or remote Oracle Database for development and production deployment.
The Instant Client libraries provide the necessary network connectivity, as well as basic and high end data features, to make full use of Oracle Database.
It underlies the Oracle APIs of popular languages and environments including Node.js, Python and PHP, as well as providing access for OCI, OCCI, JDBC, ODBC and Pro*C applications.
Tools included in Instant Client, such as SQL*Plus and Oracle Data Pump, provide quick and convenient data access.
A Docker image with the Basic, SDK and SQL*Plus packages is available on the Docker Store or from the Oracle Container Registry.
Instant Client is provided under a separate Oracle Technology Network License Agreement that allows most licensees to download, redistribute, deploy in production environments, and provide third party training and instruction on the use of Oracle Instant Client, without charge.
This efficiency is achieved without compromising readability, flexibility, or discoverability.
