B OCI Demonstration Programs

Oracle provides code examples illustrating the use of OCI calls. These programs are provided for demonstration purposes, and are not guaranteed to run on all operating systems.

You must install the demonstration programs as described in Oracle Database Examples Installation Guide. The location, names, and availability of the programs may vary on different operating systems. On a Linux or UNIX workstation, the programs are installed in the $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/demo directory. For Windows systems, see Appendix D.

OCI header files that are required for OCI client application development on Linux or UNIX platforms are in the $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/public directory. The demo_rdbms.mk file is in the $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/demo directory and serves as an example makefile. On Windows systems, make.bat is the analogous file in the samples directory. There are instructions in the makefiles.

Unless you significantly modify the demo_rdbms.mk file, you are not affected by changes you make as long the demo_rdbms.mk file includes the $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/public directory. Ensure that your highly customized makefiles have the $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/public directory in the INCLUDE path.

Development of new makefiles to build an OCI application or an external procedure should consist of the customizing of the makefile provided by adding your own macros to the link line. However, Oracle requires that you keep the macros provided in the demo makefile, as it results in easier maintenance of your own makefiles.

When a specific header or SQL file is required by the application, these files are also included as specified in the demonstration program file. Review the information in the comments at the beginning of the demonstration programs for setups and hints on running the programs.

Table B-1 lists the important demonstration programs and the OCI features that they illustrate. Look for related files with the .sql extension.
