Starting with release 6.3 of OTM/GTM, Oracle Development will no longer be providing, or supporting, a Python runtime or set of Python scripts for use with OTM/GTM as part of the standard installation.
The product strategic direction is to focus all current and future tool development on the Java platform.
The scripts that were provided in versions before v.6.3 will still be made freely available for download and modification. Instructions for how an OTM installation could be configured to allow their use are also provided below. However, it should be noted that not all platform configurations will be identical and any issues found during installation should be investigated using the Python website – www.python.org.
Warning against modifying Data in the Database
Except as explicitly noted in the OTM Administration Guide and other Oracle Transportation Management documentation, the data in an Oracle Transportation Management database should never be added to, modified or deleted by an outside application while Oracle Transportation Management is running. This could lead to unrecoverable data corruption and is not a supported use-case.
The intended audience of this note is OTM/GTM customers and implementers who are already using, or are interested in using, the Python scripting language for importing/exporting data. Although the scripts are being made available and can be modified by users of the scripts, Oracle Support can not provide assistance in their use or in resolving issues. A pre-requisite for using these scripts is to have the Python scripting language installed.
