I believe Sharepoint only works with MS SQL Server databases. But you could define a "linked server" to your Oracle database in SQL Server and access the Oracle tables like this. You will probably need to install the Oracle Net client software on the SQL Server box, and create an Oracle Net alias to the Oracle database instance.
