Oracle Cursors with .Net

I am having an argument with our DBA, he is under the impression that it is the .net api always opens a cursor. However I believe that Oracle always opens a cursor for any select statement.
Can someone shed some light?
Regardless of what the answer is, why is it that oracle relies so heavily on cursors?
