Connecting to a Oracle Database using

By ppburli ·
Have looked for the solution everywhere and finally found the below. Hope this will help someone.

I have a question though can someone help me with transfering the data from the adaptor to a array.

Sub Connectdb()
'redirect to error handler
On Error GoTo ErrorText

'For database connection
Dim conn As New OleDbConnection()

'Step 1.
'set connection parameters
'Parameters for database connection
'Change the values to those applicable to your database
Dim datasource As String, username As String, password As String
'Replace with Connect String as TNSNames
datasource = ""
username = "ORANET"
password = "ORANET"

'set provider and connection parameters for database connection
'get the connection parameters from connectionParams.vb file
Dim connectionString As String = "Provider=OraOLEDB.Oracle" & _
";Data Source=" + datasource & _
";User ID=" + username & _
";Password=" + password & _
";OLEDB.NET=true" 'using OLEDB .Net Data Provider features

'Connection to datasource, using connection parameters given above
conn = New OleDbConnection(connectionString)

'Open database connection
'Instantiate OleDbDataAdapter to create DataSet
Dim oAdapter As OleDbDataAdapter = New OleDbDataAdapter()

'Fetch Product Details
oAdapter.SelectCommand = New OleDbCommand("select username, osuser, v$session", conn)

end Sub

If you are just pulling stuff in

The DataReader classes are lighter.

Then you just do
While Reader.Read()
MyArray[Index] = Reader["username"].ToString();
Index ++;

or some such.

Personally I'd be knocking up a class to hold the record and hold generic list of them....

I have done many Oracle projects with VB.NET and would tell you first that you would want to eliminate the OleDB and replace it with a native Oracle client.

What I find works extremely well for retrieving data from Oracle is the use of "weak bound ref cursors." this will basically give you a "bucket" of data from Oracle that you can use as a dataset, datatable, etc.

Hope this helps!
