Oracle adapter without PDO_OCI

Hi, my webapp is a MVC and my database is Oracle 11g. My models extends Phalcon\Mvc\Model, so, uses Phalcon\Db\Adapter\Pdo\Oracle. But PDO_OCI is a experimental extension (https://php.net/manual/en/ref.pdo-oci.php) and my client don't allows this installation in your server. I wonder if anybody have a Oracle Adapter was developed with oci8 instead of pdo. Best regards.

Hi men maybe from phalcon 2 version could be oci8 instead pdo_oci... but is maybe phalcon 2

i made too some test with Oracle11 and i ended up using pdo-via-oci8 (developed by Arjay Angeles) as the starting point for alternative adapter and dialect: https://www.airaghi.net/en/phalconp-alternative-way-to-use-oracle11g
