You will surely need a working Oracle client on the machine where Delphi is.
After that I recommend that you take a look at www.allroundautomations.com for their DOA. It's the best way to access Oracle (although it's not free).

hi

first before u even start to work move to Oracle 8.1.7 !!!
I got a lot of problems in 8.0.6 and 8.1.6 and at the end Oracle sent me the update without payment and they recognize that there are some critical things in x.x.6 that they fix in x.x.7.
