Last updated on JULY 05, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.2.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Using the following command to build a statically linked OCI application builds the executable as expected but the application still requires an Oracle Client to be installed and also requires the ORACLE_HOME environment variable to be set. The library environment variable does not have to be set.
