Oracle and Visual Studio 2013: What's New and Best Practices

  • Feb 3, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members


The first half of this session introduces Oracle Database support for .NET, including Oracle Data Provider for .NET (ODP.NET) and Oracle Developer Tools for Visual Studio. We discuss the latest features, including support for Visual Studio 2013, .NET Framework 4.5.1, fully-managed ODP.NET, schema comparison tools, and Entity Framework.

The second half explores coding best practices for achieving faster .NET Oracle database access performance. We examine techniques for optimizing connection pooling, caching, data fetching and updating, statement batching, and Oracle data type usage. In addition, techniques for leveraging Oracle Database 12c’s new high-availability features—Transaction Guard and Global Data Services—for .NET clients and for faster and smoother planned outages will be covered.


Alex Keh is a senior principal product manager at Oracle focusing on data access and database integration with .NET and Windows. He's spoken previously at many Microsoft and Oracle events, including Microsoft TechEd, Microsoft Professional Developers Conference, VSLive!, Oracle Develop, ODTUG Kscope, and Oracle OpenWorld.
