Oracle Database Extensions for .NETThe Oracle Database Extensions for .NET is a database option of Oracle Database on Windows that makes it easy to develop, deploy, and run stored procedures and functions written in a .NET managed language such as C# or VB.NET.
.NET Stored procedures or functions are developed using Microsoft Visual Studio and deployed using the tightly integrated .NET Deployment Wizard which is a feature included in the Oracle Developer Tools for Visual Studio. You can develop and deploy your .NET stored procedures from Visual Studio 2010, Visual Studio 2008, and Visual Studio 2005.
After deploying, a .NET stored procedure can be called from within .NET application code, from SQL or PL/SQL, from another .NET, PL/SQL or Java stored procedure, from a trigger, or from anywhere else a stored procedure or function call is allowed.
This product is a database option and is included with the Oracle Database on Windows installation. Further upgrades are installed as part of the Oracle Database Access Components (ODAC) releases, however the database option must first be installed and configured before it can be upgraded.
The new 22.214.171.124.2 release below offers support for .NET stored procedures and functions that use the .NET Framework 4.
