OCI changes from 9 to 10? [message #190659] Thu, 31 August 2006 10:22

Good Day.

I have an application that implements OCI and is currently built against Oracle 9's release of oci.dll using VC++6.

We have discovered a bug where this program cannot read data from a column that is a binary_float or binary_double. Since this is a new data type introduced in Oracle 10 I figured that the Oracle 9 build just didn't know how to deal with this data type.

I've tried compiling my application against the Oracle 10 release of oci.dll using both VC++6 and VS7.1. In both cases my application now fails to create an OCI connection with my database. I can't seem to find any useful message that tells me why the connection fails.

Does anyone know if there are changes between the 9 and 10 versions of OCI that would require some code porting instead of just a recompilation against the new libraries? Does anyone have any other suggestions to solve the problem?
