namespace is the .NET Framework Data Provider for Oracle.
The .NET Framework Data Provider for Oracle describes a collection of classes for accessing an Oracle data source in the managed space. Using the
OracleDataAdapter class, you can fill a memory-resident DataSet, query it, and use it to update the data source.
For additional information about how to use this namespace, see the
OracleDataReader, OracleCommand, and OracleConnection classes.
The .NET Framework Data Provider for Oracle supports a number of Oracle data types, including the
BFILE, LOB, and REF CURSOR data types. For information about using Oracle data types in parameters, see OracleType.
Class Description OracleBFile Represents a managed OracleBFile object designed to work with the Oracle BFILE data type. This class cannot be inherited. OracleClientFactory Represents a set of methods for creating instances of the Oracle provider's implementation of the data source classes. OracleCommand Represents an SQL statement or stored procedure to execute against a database. This class cannot be inherited. OracleCommandBuilder Automatically generates single-table commands used to reconcile changes made to a DataSet with the associated database. This class cannot be inherited. OracleConnection Represents an open connection to a database. This class cannot be inherited. OracleConnectionStringBuilder Provides a simple way to create and manage the contents of connection strings used by the OracleConnection class. OracleDataAdapter Represents a set of data commands and a connection to a database that are used to fill the DataSet and update the database. This class cannot be inherited. OracleDataReader Provides a way of reading a forward-only stream of data rows from a data source. This class cannot be inherited. OracleException The exception that is generated when a warning or error is returned by an Oracle database or the .NET Framework Data Provider for Oracle. This class cannot be inherited. OracleInfoMessageEventArgs Provides data for the InfoMessage event. This class cannot be inherited. OracleLob Represents a large object binary ( LOB) data type stored on an Oracle server. This class cannot be inherited. OracleParameter Represents a parameter to an OracleCommand and optionally its mapping to a DataColumn. This class cannot be inherited. OracleParameterCollection Represents a collection of parameters relevant to an OracleCommand as well as their respective mappings to columns in a DataSet. This class cannot be inherited.

OraclePermissionAttribute Associates a security action with a custom security attribute. OracleRowUpdatedEventArgs Provides data for the RowUpdated event. This class cannot be inherited. OracleRowUpdatingEventArgs Provides data for the RowUpdating event. OracleTransaction Represents a transaction to be made in the database.
Structure Description OracleBinary Represents a variable-length stream of binary data to be stored in or retrieved from a database. OracleBoolean Represents the value returned from a database comparison operation between Oracle data types, and exposes methods used to perform data type conversions. OracleDateTime Represents date and time data ranging in value from January 1, 4712 BC to December 31, 4712 AD. OracleMonthSpan Represents a time interval in months and corresponds to the Oracle 9i INTERVAL YEAR TO MONTH data type. OracleNumber Represents a fixed precision and scale numeric value between -10 27 -1 and 10 27 -1 to be stored in or retrieved from a database.
