I've been trying to install ODBC to connect to a postgresql backend, and
I've searched the net for examples in C++, but I can't seem to find much
other than on the unixODBC site, and their example compiles, but I can't
connect to my database. I get to a point where the environment has been
created, then the database handle is created, but when I try to connect
to the database, it fails with:
SQLDriverConnect = Missing server name, port, or database name in call
to CC_connect. (201) SQLSTATE=IM002
Which version of the system ODBC is better to use: iODBC or unixODBC
If I have both versions installed, will it cause a problem?
Are the two versions compatible?
Which version does perl DBI / DBD::Pg use (if it even uses the system
ODBC drivers)? (I got my perl apps to work, but I'm not having as much
success with my C++ apps).
Here are my installed packages for postgresql and odbc:
# rpm -q -a | grep -i odbc
# rpm -q -a | grep -i postgres
Yes, I know it's an old version, but I need to convert to ODBC before I
upgrade, and I hope that it'll be more of a standard interface. When I
had to upgrade our apps server, the proprietary PostgreSQL drivers were
changed enough that the apps wouldn't work. Since ODBC is a standard
interface, it shouldn't matter which version of the proprietary driver
is used as long as I use standard ODBC function calls. Which brings up
another point. There are some functions and prototypes defined in each
of the ODBC versions that do not match in the other, so is ODBC truely
Thanks for any help.
