New for V5.1
Performance Tuning Wizard – New easy-to-use wizard simplifies performance tuning by walking you through a series of questions related to the target environment. Based on this information, the wizard automatically generates a connection string, which can then be used to easily configure the driver for optimal performance.
Implementation of File DSN support on UNIX platforms – Eases distribution and reduces management of applications across all major network platforms.
Oracle TNS Names support – Allows use of centralized configuration information, easing deployment maintenance. Also enables use of this capability in connection failover. This is an important additional feature as it integrates into the old Oracle SQLNet way of working and allows you to migrate to wire protocol a lot easier.
