In most cases the best way is to user DAO (Direct Access Objects) like this one: http://crlab.com/odac/

You can also use ADO or BDE. They are DB independent. You can prepare a DB on different than Oracle server and use the same code (not always).

If you want to use the best Oracle can give you - use DAO.

BDS2006 has different way to connect to oracle

1. BDE with sql links (not recommanded, and support oracle 8i and below only)
2. ODBC using BDE components or third party ODBC components.
3. ADO (Good one)
4. dbExpress(may be the best option with BDS)
5. Free third party like: Zeos, AnyDac(support Direct access to oracle , sql server and more)
5. third party components (commercial) for direct access component(DOA, ODAC)

I don't know if C++Builder pro 5 support ADO or not, if you use C++builder only you can buy Turbo C++, which will cost you less than BDS 2006

also try to download trubo delphi , I didn't try the free version, but it has ADO components, so it may be fit your needs
