I’m a bit confused about the status concerning the implementation of Oracle.ManagedDataAccess.Client by ServiceStack.OrmLite.Oracle provider. Based on these resources it seems not clear what the current status is:
- The Oracle Provider Notes here still tells that the Oracle provider requires an installation of Oracle’s unmanaged ODP.NET and that the fully-managed client is not supported.
- On the other hand ServiceStack.OrmLite.Oracle OracleOrmLiteDialectProvider.cs class here uses
- The Nuget ServiceStack.OrmLite.Oracle package here lists e.g dotConnect.Express.for.Oracle as a dependency too.
At the end my question is whether Oracle.ManagedDataAccess.Client is implemented by ServiceStack.OrmLite.Oracle. If not my question is if there is a way to avoid the installation of the ODP.NET Unmanaged Driver.
