Default oracle connection string

Hi everyone,

How can I specify a connection string for an Oracle database without a DSN. I want to use the Oracle driver. However, I cannot figure out how to specify it.

I know I can specify it to use the Microsoft driver as:
Driver={Microsoft ODBC for Oracle}; Server=server.db; Uid=name; Pwd=pass;

However, my stored procedures do not work with this driver. I would like to use the Oracle driver. What is the driver connection string for using it?
