Using Oracle OCI 8.x on AIX 4.2

Using Oracle OCI 8.x on AIX 4.2

Post by Riaz Merchan » Sun, 10 Jan 1999 04:00:00



Hi all,

we have an application compiled with AIX c89 ( or xlc ) compiler. This
application loads
a database driver (using dlopen)  which is  a shared library also compiled
under c89. This driver
is linked with Oracle's OCI libraries. The loading goes okay, however, when
we call any OCI functions, the application aborts with a core dump.  Does
any one have idea what could be causing this? I know that the
OCI libraries are compiled with xlc_r ( thread safe ) compilers but they
should be loadable from
a c89 compiled application.

Any help will be appreciated.
