Oracle databases can be accessed by the .NET ODP driver from Oracle. Telerik Data Access will use the version of the driver which is registered in the DbProvederFactories class. In case there is no driver registered, Telerik Data Access will try to use version 188.8.131.52 as a fallback. The drivers can be downloaded from here, the minimal version should be 10.2.0.2.20.
For Oracle, you will need an account on an active database. Telerik Data Access will automatically create/update the class schema information.
Connect with your RDBMS administrator if you need help.
Please refer to the configuration files, which are present in your Telerik Data Access installation for more information on how to configure the various backends.
Since Telerik Data Access takes care of the communication and operations necessary to store and retrieve your objects, you don’t need to have experience with the particular relational system or knowledge of SQL.
By using the advanced features of Telerik Data Access, you have a full control over the Telerik Data Access O/R mapper. But this "fine tuning" is not needed to implement sophisticated applications using Telerik Data Access.
Telerik Data Access has been tested with the 10R2, 11g and 12.
