Oracle managed provider & Devart Provider

Post by arthernan » Mon 18 Aug 2014 15:03

Christian Shay from the Oracle dotNet team recommended that we move to the managed Oracle driver in order to avoid bitness errors and ease configuration. The idea is that the driver will be part of our website publishing package. And no native oracle drivers will be required or need to be configured. That is my dream come true.

My question is, I do have some references on how to replace the Native oracle provider, would that work with the Devart provider? Is there any special configuration that I need to follow?

I am using entity framework 6.0

There are two connection modes of dotConnect for Oracle:
1. OCI mode -> it works via Oracle client which doesn't depend on managed ODP.NET and cannot be replaced by managed ODP.NET.
2. Direct mode -> it uses neither Oracle client, nor managed ODP.NET: ... tmode.html.
