database connectivity

hey , i am using this code for database connection but it is giving error

#include "/opt/redknee/home/rel76d1/mediation//3rdparty/ocilib/include/ocilib.h"
int main(void)
OCI_Connection *cn;
//cn = OCI_ConnectionCreate("db", "usr", "pwd", OCI_SESSION_DEFAULT);
cn = OCI_createConnection("rel76d1", "rte", "rted1", OCI_SESSION_DEFAULT);
if (cn != NULL)
printf("Server major version : %i\n", OCI_GetServerMajorVersion(cn));
printf("Server minor version : %i\n", OCI_GetServerMinorVersion(cn));
printf("Server revision version : %i\n", OCI_GetServerRevisionVersion(cn));
printf("Connection version : %i\n", OCI_GetVersionConnection(cn));
/*... application code here ...*/

but on compling it is giving error oci_createConnection() was not declared in this scope.
1) Please enclose your code in code tags, to make it easier to read

2) Hard-coding the full path to the header file in the include statement is clumsy and limiting. It's much better to put the name of the file only, then add the directory containing the header files to your include path.

3) Are the OCI_ functions in a namespace? If so, you'll need to use that namespace identification.


4) It looks as though the naming convention for OCI functions has the 5th letter always being upper case. If so, you'll need to change OCI_createConnection to OCI_CreateConnection.
