Question

Can Oracle Instant Client be used to set up a direct connection from an ArcGIS 10 or prior client application to an ArcSDE geodatabase?

Answer

No, the Oracle Instant Client does not install all of the files needed to make a direct connection from an ArcSDE client application to the geodatabase.

To obtain the necessary files, the Oracle Administrator client or the client files installed with Oracle Standard or Enterprise Edition must be installed.
