  • You can connect to Oracle database with Pro*C .

    Read and try this:

    Hi,

    Yes it is possible to connect to an oracle / mysql database. For oracle
    you need the 'proc' precompiler which can be found in your $ORACLE_HOME/bin directory. If not, you have to install the oracle precompilers. In de $ORACLE_HOME/precomp/demo directory you can find some examples.

  • Hi
    visit the MySQL's home page and search for MySQL C API. You can also find it in MySQL manual under section 8.4. You have to install the required header files and libraries. If you are using a Linux (or ather UNIX based) system, RPM disributions of MySQL do not include required libraries and header files. Get the tar.gz packages! And don't forget using the "-lmysqlclient" option of GCC (I always forget :) )...

    Regarding Oracle:
    Dont use Pro*C unless you're a big fan of bloated code.
    Go directly with OCI (Oracle Call Interface) or perhaps even OCCI which is an object-oriented wrapper for OCI and without a doubt the best solution. The OCCI API is very similar to Java's database connectivity approach (ResultSet, Statement etc..).
