Oracle ODBC Driver

Is getting to your data slowing the growth of your business? Need an Oracle ODBC driver that is best in class?

Our super fast Oracle ODBC driver simply allows any ODBC-enabled application to access Oracle databases; as you would expect from Easysoft, our driver connects from Windows (both 32-bit and 64-bit versions), Linux and Unix, and we support all the major versions of Oracle (including the latest). Take a look at the technical description below for more information.

As you would imagine from a company that prides itself on its "customer first" focus, the driver is easy to install and our support team is here to help you with any difficulties or questions that you might have. We are rightly proud of our support team, and any problems you might have are usually resolved within 24 hours; free drivers cannot offer you such a support service.

As with all of our drivers, this Oracle ODBC driver offers ODBC 3.5 support.

Oracle ODBC Driver for 8, 9i, 10g, XE, 11g and 12c

The Easysoft ODBC-Oracle Driver lets ODBC-enabled applications access Oracle databases from Linux, Unix and Windows 32 bit and 64 bit platforms. It supports Oracle 8.1.7+, 9i.x, 10g Release 1+, Oracle Database 10g Express Edition (Oracle Database XE), 11g Release 1+ and 12c Release 1+.

There are two versions of the Easysoft ODBC-Oracle Driver: an Oracle Call Interface (OCI) version and a Wire Protocol (WP) version.

The Easysoft ODBC-Oracle Driver (OCI version) uses Oracle client software to access the Oracle database. This is Oracle’s only supported method for accessing the Oracle database. The driver is compatible with the standard Oracle Database Client or the Instant Client.

The Oracle client software provides the most comprehensive access to Oracle database functionality. For example, the Oracle Advanced Security option is an Oracle client or server add-on that combines network encryption, database encryption and strong authentication to protect sensitive data stored in Oracle databases. Applications that access Oracle by using the Easysoft ODBC-Oracle Driver can take advantage of the Oracle Advanced Security option. This is not true of some of the Easysoft ODBC-Oracle Driver’s competitor’s products.

Drivers that do not use the Oracle client software do not support features offered by the Oracle client software.

Even if you do not currently need the additional functionality provided by a client add-on, using the Easysoft ODBC-Oracle Driver gives you the option to add it later, should your requirements change.

The Easysoft ODBC-Oracle Driver (WP version), which does not use Oracle client software, provides direct access to Oracle, for use in solutions where minimising the client footprint is a requirement.

The Easysoft ODBC-Oracle Driver can be installed either on the Oracle database server or a remote client machine.

The Easysoft ODBC-Oracle Driver:

  • Conforms to the ODBC 3.5 specification.
  • Works with ODBC 2.0, 2.5, 3.0 and 3.5 applications. Supported programming interfaces include Perl DBI and DBD::ODBC, Python mxODBC and pyodbc and PHP. Supported applications include ApplixWare, OpenOffice.org, StarOffice, Microsoft Access and Microsoft Excel.
  • Is available in both 32 bit and 64 bit Oracle ODBC Driver versions.
  • Supports Oracle Native SQL syntax.
  • Works with the Oracle Database Client and the Instant Client.
  • Uses Oracle Net or Net8 and client libraries, ensuring client/server compatibility.
  • Uses Oracle client configuration settings, simplifying configuration and data source administration.
  • Allows access to Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC). An Oracle RAC database spans multiple low-cost servers yet appears to an application as a single, unified database system. RAC combines the processing power of these servers to provide system redundancy, scalability, and high availability.
  • Provides full support for all Oracle data types, including LONG and large objects (LOBs).
  • Supports transactions.
  • Can take part in distributed XA transactions.
  • Is compatible with Oracle Advanced Security features including data integrity protection, data encryption and strong authentication using third party services such as Kerberos and Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS).
  • Is compatible with and includes unixODBC, the open source ODBC Driver Manager for non-Windows platforms. The Easysoft ODBC-Oracle Driver installation can automatically install the driver into unixODBC, making the ODBC-Oracle Driver immediately available to your ODBC applications. The unixODBC project is currently led by Easysoft developer Nick Gorham and we have many years of experience in supporting and testing our drivers with unixODBC.
  • Is thread-safe and therefore safe to use behind multi-threaded applications.
  • Lets you configure ODBC calls to reduce metadata and increase performance.
  • Lets you generate diagnostic trace logs that enable you to monitor the ODBC calls an application makes. This helps you diagnose problems.
