Oracle .NET Code Sample Respository

About Oracle .NET

This repository provides .NET code samples for Oracle developers, specifically for Oracle Data Provider for .NET (ODP.NET) and other Oracle .NET components. .NET products for Oracle Database are free of charge. They consist of:

  • Oracle Data Provider for .NET (ODP.NET) - an optimized ADO.NET data access provider to the Oracle database. ODP.NET allows developers to take advantage of advanced Oracle database functionality, including Real Application Clusters, XML DB, and self-updating client caches. ODP.NET offers three provider types: Core for .NET (Core) runtimes, managed for .NET Framework (100% managed code and easy deployment), and unmanaged for .NET Framework.
  • Oracle Developer Tools for Visual Studio - a tightly integrated design-time "Add-in" for Microsoft Visual Studio that provides full Oracle .NET application lifecycle management, including PL/SQL debugging and schema comparison tools.
  • Oracle Developer Tools for VS Code - enables Visual Studio Code developers to connect to Oracle Database and Oracle Autonomous Database, edit SQL and PL/SQL with autocomplete, Intellisense, breadcrumbs, and syntax coloring, execute SQL and PL/SQL and view and save the results in formats such as .CSV and JSON. The Oracle Database Explorer tree control allows you to quickly explore your database schema, view table data, and edit, execute and save PL/SQL.
  • Oracle Providers for ASP.NET - a collection of ASP.NET providers that use Oracle Database as the data source. ASP.NET applications can store various types of website state in an Oracle database, which can then be shared across the application.
  • Oracle Database Extensions for .NET - a feature of Oracle Database on Windows that makes it easy to develop, deploy, and run stored procedures and functions written in a .NET managed language

Getting Started

Oracle .NET components are bundled together and installed as part of Oracle Data Access Components (ODAC). Downloads and installation instructions are available from the OTN .NET Tech Center download page and NuGet Gallery. Oracle Developer Tools for VS Code can be downloaded from the VS Code Marketplace. Installation instructions are available as part of each download page. The installation instructions list the software prerequisites for the version downloaded.


For beginning Oracle .NET developers, these on-premises .NET database tutorials and Autonomous Database .NET tutorials will assist you in getting started with .NET application development with Oracle Database. Video tutorials are available from the Oracle .NET YouTube site.
