i think that there is oracle .net driver that allow you to connect directly to the oracle DB

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=4F55D429-17DC-45EA-BFB3-076D1C052524&displaylang=en
this is .NET Managed Provider for Oracle

>no, i was thinking something with odbc instead oledb
why go back in time? oledb is better than odbc, especially supporting the newer features and larger data types...

>My boss asked me to change this class to connect to the oracle database without the oracle drivers.
you CANNOT connect to oracle without the oracle drivers (ie the oracle client).
the oracle part can be very small though: instant client:
www.oracle.com/technology/tech/oci/instantclient/index.html

>using System.Data.OleDb;
this part is contained in the .net framework, so nothing more is needed. just the right connection string

tnx, i solved it, but now, im having trouble, when i try to send the method it hangs on the remoteconnection.open() says "ERROR [IM002] [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified" i set up the conection string, but it still shows that message.
i know there is something missing, but i cant figure out what
