Simple JSON program error

Okay I'm trying to run this example code of a json parser, pulling data from a url.

        // Response looks good - done using Curl now.  Try to parse the results
        // and print them out.
        Json::Value jsonData;

            std::cout << jsonData.toStyledString() << std::endl;

            const std::string dateString(jsonData["date"].asString());
            const std::size_t unixTimeMs(
                    jsonData["milliseconds_since_epoch"].asUInt64());

            std::cout << std::endl;
        }
        else
        {
            std::cout << "Could not parse HTTP data as JSON" << std::endl;
            std::cout << "HTTP data was:\n" << *httpData.get() << std::endl;
            return 1;
        }
    }
    else

        std::cout << "Couldn't GET from " << url << " - exiting" << std::endl;
        return 1;
    }

    return 0;
}

And I get this error:
Error:
Json has not been declared
jsonReader was not declared
jsonData was not declared


I'm supposing my mingw Dev C++ compiler doesn't recognize those objects because I don't have the libjsoncpp library properly linked? In my actual code, the json header directly is a file path to the .h file. What files do I need for these objects to be recognized.
