Another plan sqlobject 07 comment 000

Yes, it would be a hard job. Oracle doesn't have a way to quote strings (escape special characters), so one needs to pass a list (or dictionary) of parameters along with parametrized query string. This requires changing the way SQLObject generates queries. I've started to work on this, but there is a long road in front of me. Please join if you are really interested to help.

While this will cause a problem for BLOBs and some other types without a SQL literal representation, Oracle does have literal representation of most types of data. It's suboptimal to translate literals into SQL for Oracle to later parse, but it's doable and the way all the other database backends are working at the moment. Most parts of SQLObject would be easy to implement for Oracle, with some border cases that are going to be more difficult.
