System.Data.OracleClient

P: n/a

Hi,

I don't know if this is the correct newsgroup to post this question, but
here goes.

I have installed Visual Studio .Net Professional 2003. I checked the
version and it is 7.1.3088. It says in the books that I have read, that this
version already has namespace for oracle db connection. But I can't seem to
locate System.Data.OracleClient namespace.

Any ideas why? Do I have to do something first to get this namespace?

Appreciate the help.
Thanks.

I believe you have to download it from Microsoft. Or use the layer that comes
from Oracle. Be careful... they are very different. You can read an article I
wrote on the Oracle drives on my web site:

Did you select Project->References and add System.Data.OracleClient.dll as a
reference?
Once you've done that, the statement:

using System.Data.OracleClient;

will be recognized and you can set up your OracleConnection object, etc.
