I am running into troubles with establishing a connection to an Oracle database using the MDL tools.
With this link, I have tried to use the Oracle connect string format specified here but keep running into a 4036 status (malformed connect string) when I call mdlDB_activeDatabase(connect_string).
The connect string format according to the link is: <user_name>/<password>@ host name
Below is an example of how I am plugging in my Oracle DB's values into the format:
Then I pass data_source to a function as a WCharCP argument and call the following:
status = mdlDB_activeDatabase(data_source);
The returned status is 4036. I have tried several other permutations such as removing the <> brackets and removing the space between @ and host name. I've also interpreted host name as two separate variables where name might be the connection name. Everything I've tried results in a 4036 code.
Any help is appreciated. I thank you for your time.
