This book never loses sight of its instructional mission: to effectively utilize the Oracle database from the .NET environment. It exploits new features of Visual Studio .NET 2003 and the Oracle database 10g, and explains Oracle programming using both C# and VB.NET languages. It provides a one-stop reference for VS.NET developers working with Oracle. Also an excellent resource for J2EE programmers in environments considering moving to a .NET environment (and retaining the Oracle database).Williams, Mark A. is the author of 'Pro. NET Oracle Programming From Professional To Expert', published 2004 under ISBN 9781590594254 and ISBN 1590594258.
