    thanks for answer...

    as you said, it is convinient for me to install oracle client.

    But my client don't want to install oracle client in web server.

    Is there any way to connect and insert to oracle server without oracle client?

    install the Oracle Instant Client, small footprint, designed with Web Servers in mind.

    there are also published procedures for putting instant client components in your /BIN folder of the web application;

    but I cannot understand the basis of decision of the client to avoid installing a required client.

    It is kind of like buying an automobile but prohibiting people from putting in gasoline so it can run.
