The following example creates an OracleConnection and displays some of its read-only properties.


public void CreateOracleConnection()
{
    string connectionString = "Data Source=Oracle8i;Integrated Security=yes";
    using (OracleConnection connection = new OracleConnection(connectionString))
    {
        connection.Open();
        Console.WriteLine("ServerVersion: " + connection.ServerVersion
            + "\nState: " + connection.State);
    }
}
