• Oracle Data Access Components (ODAC) is a library of components that provides native connectivity to Oracle from Delphi, Delphi for .NET, C++Builder and Kylix. The ODAC library is designed to help programmers develop faster and cleaner Oracle database applications. ODAC is a complete replacement for standard Oracle connectivity solutions and presents an efficient native alternative to the Borland Database Engine and dbExpress for access to Oracle.

    • TOraQueueTable - manages queue tables
    • TOraQueueAdmin - manages Oracle queues
    • TOraChangeNotification - allows you to use Oracle Database Change Notifications
    • TOraTrace - allows you to start and stop the SQL trace for a specified session
    • TOraErrorHandler - translates error messages
    • TBDESession - allows to integrate ODAC components into BDE based application
    • TOraMetaData - retrieves metadata on specified SQL object
    • TOraProvider - provides data to and applies updates from a client dataset
    • TCRBatchMove - transfers data between all types of TDataSet descendants
