The ADO.NET Entity Framework offers key benefits to developers of data-centric business applications that connect to an Oracle back end. By employing object-relational mapping, the ADO.NET Entity Framework liberates the application code from the restraints, complexities, and version changes of the relational schema utilized by the Oracle database. The result is ADO.NET Oracle applications that are more efficient and resilient, and that take less time to develop. To fully exploit the advantages of the ADO.NET Entity Framework for Oracle connectivity, however, you need an ADO.NET data provider for Oracle that fully supports Entity Framework functionality.
