I recognize that Enterprise Library 4.x uses the Microsoft provided Oracle Data Client driver however, I am trying to locate documentation on the Oracle driver used by Ent Lib 5.x.

Can you help out a lad?

Enterprise Library 5 still uses the (now deprecated) System.Data.OracleClient provider.  It is recommended to use the EntlibContrib Oracle ODP.NET Data Provider.
