Oracle Data Access Components (ODAC) is a VCL/VCL.NET/CLX component library for fast direct access to Oracle from Delphi, C++Builder, and Kylix. ODAC is heavily performance- and stress-tested to provide the fastest available native connectivity to Oracle. ODAC features advanced local data handling and comprehensive Oracle functionality coverage, including Oracle Advanced Queuing, Oracle TAF, and distributed transaction support.
ODAC is easy to use in both new and existing applications. It is a complete replacement for standard Oracle connectivity solutions and integrates well with third-party libraries and Core Lab database development tools. Comes with full documentation and a large set of demo projects.
