A first ODBC example

The following is a simple ODBC program that connects to the SQL Anywhere sample database and immediately disconnects.

You can find this sample in samples-dir\SQLAnywhere\ODBCConnect\odbcconnect.cpp.

#include <stdio.h>
#include "ntodbc.h"

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
{
  SQLHENV  env;
  SQLHDBC  dbc;
  SQLRETURN retcode;

  retcode = SQLAllocHandle( SQL_HANDLE_ENV, 
             SQL_NULL_HANDLE, 
             &env );
  if (retcode == SQL_SUCCESS 
      || retcode == SQL_SUCCESS_WITH_INFO) {
    printf( "env allocated\n" );
    /* Set the ODBC version environment attribute */
    retcode = SQLSetEnvAttr( env, 
                  SQL_ATTR_ODBC_VERSION,
                  (void*)SQL_OV_ODBC3, 0);
      retcode = SQLAllocHandle( SQL_HANDLE_DBC, env, &dbc );
      if (retcode == SQL_SUCCESS 
           || retcode == SQL_SUCCESS_WITH_INFO) {
        printf( "dbc allocated\n" );
        retcode = SQLConnect( dbc,
          (SQLCHAR*) "SQL Anywhere 11 Demo", SQL_NTS,
          (SQLCHAR* ) "DBA", SQL_NTS,
          (SQLCHAR*) "sql", SQL_NTS );
        if (retcode == SQL_SUCCESS
           || retcode == SQL_SUCCESS_WITH_INFO) {
          printf( "Successfully connected\n" );
        }
        SQLDisconnect( dbc );
      }
      SQLFreeHandle( SQL_HANDLE_DBC, dbc );
    }
    SQLFreeHandle( SQL_HANDLE_ENV, env );
  return 0;
}
