1 SODA for C Prerequisites

SODA for C is an integral part of Oracle Call Interface (OCI) starting with Oracle Database Release 18c (18.3).

For information about the minimal versions of client libraries needed for SODA for C, see SODA Drivers in Oracle Database Introduction to Simple Oracle Document Access (SODA).

It is not a requirement, but Oracle recommends that you use AL32UTF8, which implements Unicode UTF-8, as the database character set.

You compile programs that use SODA for C the same way you compile other OCI programs.
