Oracle Data Access Components Editions

Oracle Data Access Components comes in two editions: Standard and Professional.

The Standard edition includes the ODAC basic connectivity components and ODAC Migration Wizard. ODAC Standard Edition is a cost-effective solution for database application developers who are looking for overall high-performance connectivity to Oracle.

The Professional edition shows off the full power of ODAC, enhancing ODAC Standard Edition with support for Oracle-specific functionality, access to the Direct mode for connecting to the Oracle server directly via TCP/IP, and some advanced dataset management features.

You can get Source Access to the Client mode implementation of all the component classes in ODAC by purchasing the special ODAC Professional Edition with Source Code. The source codes of DataSet Manager and Migration Wizard are not distributed. The source code of Oracle Direct Mode is supplied obfuscated.

The matrix below compares features of ODAC editions. The detailed list of all ODAC features you can find at the ODAC features page .
