Oracle and .NET at Tech·Ed Orlando
Be sure to stop by the Oracle booth on the demogrounds floor (aka "Partner Expo") for your own personalized demo of Oracle products. We will have demonstrations for Oracle and .NET, Grid Control, RAC, and App Server.
At the .NET demo station you can get the first look at the upcoming release of the ODAC 11g beta including the following new features:
Visual Studio 2005 integration with Server Explorer, Data Sources Window, Dataset Designer, TableAdapter Configuration Wizard and more
Improved ASP.NET web developer support
Oracle Database script project to provide source control of Oracle scripts
Integration with Query builder and Query Designer
User-Defined Types: Create, explore, modify UDTs and custom class code generation for .NET application
and much more.....
Instant Client Support: Smaller ODP.NET client installation
User-Defined Types: Map Oracle objects and collections to .NET custom types and support REFs to object types
and much more...
We have a "Bird of a Feather" session, which is not a formal presentation, but more of a discussion with Oracle staffers and your fellow Oracle and .NET developers and DBAs. Come prepared with questions and bring your laptop if you feel like turning it into an installfest!

Oracle Database on Windows Vista now available!
Developers who just need the 32-bit Oracle Client for Vista can download it at that same link. This client release is much easier to install than the previous "start at 10.2.0.1 and patch up to 10.2.0.3" method that I blogged about earlier, and it doesn't require that you have access to a Metalink account (to get the patches) if you just want to evaluate the software.
And as I mentioned in that prior blog entry, Oracle Database Express Edition has been certified on Vista for some time now.
Some information about Oracle on 64-bit Windows Vista can be found at the Oracle Database on Windows Vista: Statement of Direction.
Happy installing! :)
