    Static library for OCI on Windows


      I found that Oracle full client ( on Linux (Red Hat, Suse Linux Os) provides the static libraries.

      For some time, I was thinking that the oci.lib file available thru instantClient sdk is the static library for Windows.

      But, actually it is just a import library (as mentioned here ).

      So, does it mean that there is no static linking option available on Windows (with Microsoft visual studio C++ / C programming)?

      Do we always need to link with oci.dll?

      Please guide.

      Thanks and Regards.
