Oracle is an object-relational database management system developed by Oracle.

There are different technologies you can use to access Oracle from web applications developed with HTML5 Builder:

Installation

Client

  1. Get the Instant Client from here.
  2. Extract the archive.
  3. Get your system to recognize the .dll files in the Instant Client folder. There are two different ways you can achieve this:
    • Copy all .dll files from the Instant Client folder into your Windows\System32 directory.
    • Point ORACLE_HOME to the Instant Client folder. Check this for more information.
