Oracle Developer Tools Now Available for .NET

Let's face it, not every IT shop is 100% Microsoft. Some are using other tools as well. Here at Codeguru we use Oracle and mySQL in addition to many other tools.

With Oracle being a top database, it should be no surprise that they have now released a new set of tools that work with Visual Studio, these are the Oracle Developer Tools for Visual Studio .NET (ODT). You can download the newest version, ODT from:

The download contains an add-in that lightly integrates with Visual Studio .NET. It will work with 2004 or 2005 and includes several key elements. Of key importance is a Data Provider for both .NET 1.x and 2.0 as well as OLE DB. There are also database extensions for both 1.x and 2.0, Oracle services for Microsoft Transaction Server, integrated PL/SQL debugging, ADO.NET 2.0 support, and .NET Stored Procedures for .NET 2.0.

In a separate download, you can get just the ODAC support for ADO.NET 2.0 and .NET Stored Procedures for .NET 2.0. This is available from the Oracle 120g Release 2 ODAC
