Oracle Class Library for C++ Question

Post by Dereck » Sat 06 Sep 2008 01:50

I don't know if this is the proper forum to post this query so pardon me if it should go somewhere else.

I've been looking for a long time for some kind of API which would allow me to call an Oracle database through my Visual C++ 6.0 and while surfing the web I came across the Oracle Class Library for C++.

I am primarily an Oracle PL/SQL programmer but there are some applications which, while I can do it with PL/SQL I wouldn't mind exploring using another language such as C++ to do the work and just have Oracle as the data repository.

Would anybody care to comment on the pros and cons of the Oracle Class Library for C++.

Incidentally my Oracle versions are Oracle 10g and Oracle 9i.

Thank you.

You can read about Oracle Class library for C++ here: It includes components OraConnection, OraCommand, OraRecordset, and many others. You can use them to execute statements and PL/SQL blocks.
