does anyone know what version of oracle test partner supports?
also which is better to set up, oracle or sql?
Navigate to <install dir>/help/releasenotesmw.htm/ This will tell you what release your installed version supports, the latest version of tp (5.3) states it supports: "Oracle v9.2.0, v9.0.1, or 8.1.7 database on a Microsoft platform"
which is a better database to set up, oracle or sql?
Depends on your context. Which is better to drive? A red automobile or a blue automobile?
Given the choice, I would go with SQL. Most TP users likely use SQL.
We run all of our stuff through SQL and it's great. The Maintenance tools will help you to put together and create the databases if you don't have a lot of experience in SQL.
