How do I connect to an oracle db in my ASP .NET web application, and what do I need to make this work?

This is my first time connecting to an Oracle DB in a web application. What all do I need to make this work? Which using statement do I need? Do I need to add a reference to my Bin folder? If so which one? Are there any clear examples of this (links to them)? Where can I find / download the Oracle Client for .NET?

@infomaniac: thank you. I downloaded that and wrote some code. all is well with the exception of me getting this error message:

{System.Exception: System.Data.OracleClient requires Oracle client software version 8.1.7 or greater.}

when I attempt to open my connection. how do I upgrade to the correct version? Or, where do I go to get the download that contains the correct version?

you have to install the oracle client, the installer is inside ODTwithODAC112030.zip that informaniac linked

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

@sognoct: ok. I'm having trouble with being for certain which file that is within the zip. i think that's what I need help locating / specifying. I followed the instrctions in the read me html file and opened a command line and did:

install.bat all c:\oracle oda

i thought that would do it. no?

@informaniace: in the statment below, where do I find this at? (this being: "the reference to the ODP.NET).

"In the reference to the ODP.Net make sure "require specific version" = False.  You may also want to set Copy Local to True.  If you aren't using ODP.Net then you may want to look into doing that."

Also how do (or where do) i check which version of Oracle Client I'm running? Sorry about the "newbie" questions but i am new to this.

I used ODTwithODAC112030.zip

in :
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/dotnet/utilsoft-086879.html

and there is
ODTwithODAC112030.zip

this contains a working
setup.exe run it as administrator and will work

for the new version, I've not installed yet ...
