This directory contains samples for ODPI-C. All of the executables can be built using the supplied Makefile (Makefile.win32 for use with nmake on Windows). The executables will be placed in the subdirectory "build" and can be run from there.
See the top level README for the platforms and compilers that have been tested and are known to work.
Some samples require the latest Database features. TestBFILE needs to write to the physical directory that the database can read from, so it will generally fail unless it is run on the same machine as the database.
To run the samples:
Ensure that installation of the ODPI-C library has been completed as explained here.
Optionally edit the file sql/SampleEnv.sql and edit the parameters defined there. If you don't change any of the parameters, make the sure the schemas odpicdemo and odpicdemo_proxy can be dropped. If you do edit the parameters defined there, also set the corresponding environment variables indicated on the right of the defined variable.
Optionally set the environment variable ODPIC_SAMPLES_CONNECT_STRING to point to the database in which you plan to run the tests. If this environment variable is not set, the connect string will be assumed to be the EZ connect string "localhost/orclpdb".
Run 'make clean' and 'make' to build the samples
Run SQL*Plus as SYSDBA and create the sample SQL objects with sql/SetupSamples.sql. The syntax is:
sqlplus / as sysdba @SetupSamples
Change to the 'build' directory and run each sample individually. On Linux you will need to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to the location of the library, for example:
After running the samples, drop the SQL objects by running the script sql/DropSamples.sql. The syntax is:
sqlplus / as sysdba @DropSamples
