These pages describe
, an Oracle chemistry plug-in using the
Chemistry Development Kit
(CDK). The CDK is an open source Java library for Chemoinformatics and Bioinformatics.
OrChem is maintained by the chemoinformatics and metabolism team
of the European Bioinformatics Institute.
Oracle Data cartridges extend the capabilities of the Oracle server. For
chemistry various commercial cartridges exist that facilitate
searching and analyzing chemical data. OrChem also provides
functionality like this, but is not
a cartridge. It doesn't need Oracle's
extensibility architecture because its Java components run as Java stored procedures inside the Oracle standard JVM (Aurora).
OrChem is suitable for Oracle 11G and onwards
Starting with Oracle 11g release 1 (11.1) there is a just-in-time(JIT
compiler for Oracle JVM environment. A
JIT compiler for Oracle JVM
enables much faster execution because it manages the invalidation,
recompilation, and storage of code without an external mechanism. This
new Oracle feature makes Java classes perform better than before.
