Hi Geoff,

From your talk at jlab on R3.15 I was not clear on the fate of dbd files. Will they still exist in R3.15? We use them in our ORACLE database. I understand how moving the information from the dbd file into the compiled objects will make things safer on the IOC but getting the same information into the ORACLE database will be impacted.

DBD files will still required in R3.15 - they are still the fundamental way in which an IOC's facilities are configured. I'm just converting them to another form for loading onto the IOC itself.

Note that we are adding new keywords to DBD files though - for R3.14 there is an additional function() statement which is needed for subroutine records on non-vxWorks IOCs, and in R3.15 there will be more changes to add link support. You will probably want to make sure that your Oracle process can cope with using a different DBD file for each IOC or group of IOCs.
