Boolean in OracleDbType

what is Oracle equivalent for Boolean? I have this function where I need to pass onlineFiling to a stored procedure as bool but apparently Oracle don't have Boolean in its OracleDbType. How do I do this? thanks

public List<MModel> GetReportData(DateTime startDateTime, DateTime endDateTime, bool onlineFiling)
var managementModel = new List<ManagementModel>();
var oracCmd = new OracCommand(1);
oracCmd.AddInParameter(OracleDbType.Date, "I_STARTDATE", startDateTime));
oracCmd.AddInParameter(OracleDbType.Date, "I_ENDDATE", endDateTime));
oracCmd.AddInParameter(OracleDbType.???, "I_ONLINE", onlineFiling));
//rest of code here


Look at the Oracle Data Provider documentation at Data Provider for .NET Developer's Guide. ODP does not seem to support boolean.

One option could be to use Char instead or Number with 1/0.

Also you should have a look at following SO posts:
