New utility Python scripts for DBAs

Might be helpful to some people.

    Hi Bobby,

    How can I connect to the multiple oracle databases using python ?

    I am able to connect successfully for a single database with no issue !!!
    import cx_Oracle

    con = cx_Oracle.connect(‘pythonhol/welcome@localhost/orcl’)

    cur = con.cursor()

    print result
