Although ODBC access from Windows client devices is common, this driver extends the same functionality to applications hosted on Linux and Unix systems, and may be extended to other platforms in the future.

The Easysoft ODBC-Oracle Driver can be located on any machine which has the Oracle® client libraries. For platforms where the Oracle® client libraries are not available or where you have many client machines, access may be provided with the addition of the Easysoft ODBC-ODBC Bridge. The addition of the Easysoft JDBC-ODBC Bridge also enables JDBC access from remote devices.
In this option Oracle® client software will usually be already present on the host system.
This option uses Net8 as the communications protocol and therefore requires the installation of the Oracle® client software on each client device.
If Oracle® client software is not available for your platform you will need to use Scenario 3: Access to a remote Oracle® database without Net8).
This configuration does not require the installation of Oracle® client software on each client device, making installation and management much simpler. This is appropriate if your client platform is supported by the Easysoft ODBC-ODBC Bridge, but Oracle® client software is not available or you don't want to install the Oracle® client on all client machines.
