    Want  to download OCI libraries Oracle 9.2

    405323
      Hi,

      I found that OCI libraries are not installed as part of my client installation ( I checked in $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/demo already)
      .
      Can anyone point me to the OCI libraries download link.

      Here is my current congiguration:

      Oracle version : 9.2.0
      Linux version : Red Hat Linux release 7.3
      gcc version : gcc-2.96

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks ... In advance

      Ravi.

          Hi Ravi,

          OCI libraries should be installed as part of a client install. The libraries can be found
          under $ORACLE_HOME/lib. The $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/demo directory contains
          demo programs which must be installed through a companion CD.

          You can also download demo programs here:
          http://www.oracle.com/technology/sample_code/tech/oci/index.html

          By default, all programs are dynamically linked with the client shared
          library. You can use the $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/demo/demo_rdbms.mk
          makefile to build the programs.

            Hi Aramappa,

            Thanks for your prompt reply. I checked under $ORACLE_HOME/lib and $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/demo directories I didn't find the 'oci.h' header file. I think the libraries are not got installed as part of my client installation. Is that way I can add the new oci library files. If so can you send me the oci library files to my email id : ravivarma20@yahoo.com if possible or point me to the download.

            One trivial question, OCI supports C++ programs also right.

            Thanks for your time.

            Ravi.

              Hi Ravi,
              I checked under $ORACLE_HOME/lib and $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/demo
              directories I didn't find the 'oci.h' header file.
              Check under $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/public or $ORACLE_HOME/OCI/include
              One trivial question, OCI supports C++ programs also right.
              By support if you meant API's, OCI provides C API to Oracle.
              For C++ API you need OCCI:

                Thanks for ur reply.

                May be I should start looking into OCCI. As we are making Oracle calls from our C++ programs.

                I appreciate your help.

                  You can find the oci.h and other needed files for compiling from http://www.oracle.com/technology/tech/oci/instantclient/index.html
                  It is in the SDK package!
