    OracleProviderFactory Class
    In This Topic
    Represents a factory required to create inheritors of generic base classes to use with dotConnect for Oracle.
    Public Class OracleProviderFactory 
       Inherits System.Data.Common.DbProviderFactory
       Implements System.IServiceProvider 
    public class OracleProviderFactory : System.Data.Common.DbProviderFactory, System.IServiceProvider  

    You can use OracleProviderFactory class to implement a code where user chooses which DBMS to use.

    To obtain an instance of the class you can use the DbProviderFactories.GetFactory method with the invariant name Devart.Data.Oracle.

    This sample routine creates and returns Devart.Common.DbConnection object.
    public DbConnection GetConnectionBaseClass2(DbProviderFactory factory)
    // if our factory supports creating a DbConnection, return it.
    if ((factory.SupportedClasses & DbProviderSupportedClasses.DbConnection) > 0)
      return factory.CreateConnection();
      return null;
    Public Function GetConnectionBaseClass2(ByVal factory As DbProviderFactory) As DbConnection
      'if our factory supports creating a DbConnection, return it.
      If ((factory.SupportedClasses And DbProviderSupportedClasses.DbConnection) > 0) Then
        Return factory.CreateConnection()
        Return Nothing
      End If
    End Function
