System.Data.OracleClient deprecated in .NET 4.0

In .NET Framework 4.0 Microsoft has deprecated OracleConnection and OracleCommand (and likely all other dependent children from the System.Data.OracleClient.

This just supports what me and my coworker have been telling our company's DBA all along.


Unfortunately, a deprecation by m$ alone won't convince the higherups to stray away from the mess that is Oracle and migrate to a M$ Sql Server. Because the oracle client ships with Oracle.DataAccess.dll in the %Oracle Path%\product\10.2.0\client_1\BIN\ folder, it's likely we'll be stuck in Oracle land!

Oracle and ADO.NET Depreciated
