Hi,
I want to convert OracleDbType.Date to .net DateTime.

OracleParameter param1 = new OracleParameter("dateP", OracleDbType.Date);
param1.Direction = System.Data.ParameterDirection.Output;
cmd.Parameters.Add(param1);
cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();

---> ?  DateTime d = cmd.Parameters["dateP"].Value

And a second question does the given parameter name in OracleParameter  must be the same with defined in procedure?

DateTime d = (DateTime) cmd.Parameters["dateP"].Value;

(According to the ODP.NET docs, OracleDate defines an explicit conversion to a DateTime)
