Hi! There

I have any problem in ConnectionString In my Application.

In my Application on client must be connect to Multi type Database Server
- Microsoft Sqlserver
- Oracle
- Mysql
Anyway in my application client can connect to Microsoft Sql Server but It can't connect to
Oracle and Mysql Because In Connection String. I can't use "Initial Catalog" to point my application
connect to Database Server. In Oracle Database server someone tell me I must install "Oracle Client" in
client but I don't agree that. How can i do in connection String Now I use Oledbconnection. It calss to connect
my Database

Thank you for answer

You really need to install the Oracle Client Software. Download the Instant Client software from Oracle technet (free of charge).

Only JDBC allows direct connectivity without client software.
