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.
