 Can D3 Pro access Oracle DB?

Can delphi 3 Professional access Oracle 7 DBs?

I've heard that it can, and that the Client/Server version is for Client AND
Server system development.  Is this right?  I'd like to only buy what I need
to access Oracle 7 DBs.  (There's a $1400 difference between Pro and C/S!)

Thanks in advance!

If you purchase the Pro version you will have to use the Oracle ODBC
driver.... If you go client/server you will be able to use the native
SQL link drivers that come with Delphi.

I assume that the ODBC connection still is included with D3 so therefore
yes (I still havent gotten D3). What you get in the C/S package is the
option of connection directly to Oracle without connecting thru ODBC.

C/S solution:
Delphi app ---> BDE ---> Oracle Server

Pro solution:
Delphi app ---> BDE ---> ODBC ---> Oracle Server

Pro solution with 3rd party database connection such as ODBC express:
Delphi app ---> ODBC (tru ODBC Express) --> Oracle Server

Hope this help you on the way...
