(Answer) (Category) OpenLDAP Faq-O-Matic : (Category) OpenLDAP Software FAQ : (Category) Integration : (Answer) How can OpenLDAP be used with Oracle Pro*C?
Oracle includes its own LDAP-functions in the library libclntsh. These functions conflict with the OpenLDAP-functions, since Oracle's functions have the same names, but a different syntax. When compiling a program that needs access to both Oracle and OpenLDAP, make sure that the OpenLDAP-libraries are linked before the Oracle libraries, by making sure that "-lldap -llber" occurs before "-lclntsh" in your gcc commandline. If you use Pro*C, you will notice that Pro*C bombs on several of OpenLDAP's calls, since the syntax of Oracle's functions are different from OpenLDAP's. Pro*C expects the Oracle calls, and thus some calls to OpenLDAP will result in a syntax error. The easiest way to fix this is to place all your calls to OpenLDAP-functions in a separate header-file. Pro*C only preprocesses the main program, and not the header files.
This has been tested and verified with Oracle 8i, Pro*C and gcc egcs-2.91.66 19990314 on a Linux machine.
