Oracle Instant Client

There is Oracle Instant Client - check if it suits your needs.
The instant client is just some DLLs you can put into your app directory - no installation is needed. I used it with DBXODA, and it works excellent.
The DLLs still take around 100MB, so the instant client is not suitable for all situations. ... lient.html

To connect to Oracle without Oracle client please use "Oracle Net (Core Lab)" connection with TSQLConnection or TCRSQLConnection. Set DataBase parameter as described in ReadMe.html
