using Oracle.DataAccess.Client;
 
class DataSourceEnumSample
{
  static void Main()
  {

    DbProviderFactory factory = DbProviderFactories.GetFactory(ProviderName);
 
    if (factory.CanCreateDataSourceEnumerator)
    {
      DbDataSourceEnumerator dsenum = factory.CreateDataSourceEnumerator();
      DataTable dt = dsenum.GetDataSources();
 
      // Print the first column/row entry in the DataTable
      Console.WriteLine(dt.Columns[0] + " : " + dt.Rows[0][0]);
      Console.WriteLine(dt.Columns[1] + " : " + dt.Rows[0][1]);
      Console.WriteLine(dt.Columns[2] + " : " + dt.Rows[0][2]);
      Console.WriteLine(dt.Columns[3] + " : " + dt.Rows[0][3]);
