Hi I would like to migrate data from a web service to oracle database using ADO.NET and I want to it be done in a faster way . Any help will be appreciated. I cannot do bulkcopy since I cannot access the source database, I can just get collection objects which need to be udpated in the database in efficient way (C#)

Please suggest... waiting for your reply.....

Something like this:
using (OracleConnection connection = new OracleConnection(connectionString))
            {
                connection.Open();

                foreach(MyObject m in myCollection)
                {
                    // first col is int and other two cols are text type
                    string queryString = @"INSERT INTO Table1 (col1, col2, col3) 
                                           values ({0}, '{1}', '{2}')";
                    queryString = string.Format(queryString,
                                                m.Field1,
                                                m.Field2,
                                                m.Field3);

                    OracleCommand command = new OracleCommand(queryString);
                    command.Connection = connection;                    
                    command.ExecuteNonQuery();
                }
            }

Hi Kris,

Thanks for the quick response... Can we use threads for this to make it even faster something like producer /consumer model...??

Threads are mainly to provide better user experience/responsive user interface and speed is not guaranteed by using threads (as execution in cpu is switched between different threads/apps by time-slicing)

Thread can be used for the above code...one option is - all of the above can be placed in a thread which will insert row after row...

If you mean the producer /consumer model for each row, though it is possible, I am not sure about the efficiency as it would involve one connection per task. Creating and closing a connection for each task/row wont be an efficient way...again db servers will have max limit for connections (sql server has max 100 connections at a time by default)...If you think about creating one connection and using it in multiple threads..well, i am not sure how that would work...

I will go for the first option of having a thread which will have all of the above code to loop thro collection and insert rows..simple and efficient, i think may be faster than having multiple threads trying to insert...

Another improvement that will increase the efficiency is to use query string with parameters, so that it can be pre-compiled using OracleCommand.Prepare method, which I am sure will increase the speed...

Thanks.....

With command.Prepare method, code will be as shown below...I am sure this will be more efficient than the prev code
using (OracleConnection connection = new OracleConnection(connectionString))
            {
                connection.Open();

                // first col is int and other two cols are text type
                string queryString = @"INSERT INTO Table1 (col1, col2, col3) 
                                           values (@val1, @val2, @val3)";

                OracleCommand command = new OracleCommand(queryString);
                command.Connection = connection;
                command.Parameters.Add("@val1", SqlDbType.Int);
                command.Parameters.Add("@val2", SqlDbType.Text);
                command.Parameters.Add("@val3", SqlDbType.Text);
                command.Prepare();

                foreach(MyObject m in myCollection)
                {                    
                    command.Parameters["@val1"].Value = m.Field1;                    
                    command.Parameters["@val2"].Value = m.Field2;                    
                    command.Parameters["@val3"].Value = m.Field3;

                    command.ExecuteNonQuery();
                }
            }
