Distribution of Oracle.ManagedDataAccess.dll

I got Oracle.ManagedDataAccess.dll using Visual Studio's Nuget.

I have developed an application.

I think that selling this application and dll as a set violates licenses.(I read "Oracle Technology Network License Agreement")

Is my opinion wrong?

To sell and set up software that communicates with oracle, the following procedure will be used.

1.install oracle client .

2.install my application.

Is there a way to complete it with a single installation?

    You can sell and setup software with the NuGet managed ODP.NET (Oracle.ManagedDataAccess.dll) version if you want. You just have to license the software under a different legal agreement. You don't have to use the Oracle Client.

    The OTN license has restrictions to resell. You can contact an Oracle reseller or sales person to acquire a license that will allow you to resell. With that license, you can use then redistribute your application with the managed ODP.NET software.

    Thank you Alex.

    I was not conscious of making another contract.

    Your answer was very helpful.

    I will contact the reseller immediately.
