Information in this document applies to any platform.Goal

This sample code uses OCIPasswordChange to change the schema password.  For demonstration purposes, it is coded such that it connects to the local instance and hard codes the user and password information. Modification to connect to a remote instance using SQLNET and/or passing in the connection information is left for the reader.

This note is different from <Note:139748.1> which uses OCILogon and thus it can't be used to change the password once it expires. This code has been tested to work even when the password has expired.
