Connects to an Oracle database. The db parameter can either contain the Oracle database SID or the name of the database as defined in tnsnames.ora. If db is not defined, ocilogon() will use the either the ORACLE_SID or TWO_TASK environment variable. The TWO_TASK will always override the value in ORACLE_SID.
All connections using ocilogon() are shared at page level, this means that even if two seperate connections are created in a script, a commit or rollback on either connection will also cause the other connection so also commit or rollback.
