Eh, Wrong! The OCI and Thin driver performance are not comparable ... more over you have just denied yourself the opportunity of using one of your databases best features, TAF. (Transparent Application Failover) In a production RAC environment, with management hovering over your shoulder, do you want to be the Developer that has to tell management ... "I am sorry that I have to shut down the applications but, I was stupid and used the Oracle Thin Driver."
