Welcome to python-oracledb’s documentation!

Python-oracledb is the new name for the Python cx_Oracle driver. The python-oracledb driver is an open source module that enables Python programs to access Oracle Database. It conforms to the Python Database API v2.0 Specification with a considerable number of additions and a couple of exclusions.

This module is currently tested with Python 3.6, 3.7, 3.8, 3.9, and 3.10 against Oracle Database 21c, 19c, 18c, 12c, and 11.2.

python-oracledb is distributed under an open-source license. Changes in python-oracledb releases can be found in the release notes.

You can use assistive technology products, such as screen readers, while you work with the python-oracledb documentation. You can also use the keyboard instead of the mouse.
