Hi!
I have a quite unique problem but maybe someone can help me anyhow.
I have to access a corporate database (no chance of altering any parameters) with Pro*C/C++ using both: "EXEC SQL SELECT" and: "EXEC SQL EXECUTE" statement. Therefore Pro*C requires the activation of at least: "SQLCHECK=semantics". However, to access the tables/stored procedures in question, the activation of a specific role is required, otherwise neither the items nor its meta-information is visible.
SQLplus complains when the role is not set:
   SQL> SELECT * FROM roleOrientedTable;
   SELECT * FROM roleOrientedTable;
                 *
   ERROR at line 1:
   ORA-00942: table or view does not exist

However in SQLplus the solution is fairly straightforward:
   SQL> SET ROLE bla IDENTIFIED by bla;
   SQL> SELECT * FROM roleOrientedTable;
   output from roleOrientedTable...

On the other hand Pro*C reacts similar:
      EXEC SQL SELECT * FROM roleOrientedTable;
   PLS-S-00201, identifier 'roleOrientedTable' must be declared

but I don't know how to persuade Pro*C to request the necessary role before trying to access the meta-information.
Any ideas? Any suggestions will be appreciated!
Cheers
Mark.

You can't, in the development server, to allow compilation, activate all the roles by default.

Dear Michael,
thanks a lot for the fast reply!
However...
O.K. this is a bit embarrassing - outing me as a newbie, but what is the: "development server" and how do I activate roles in it?
I currently call: "proc" form the command line, having the database access parameters in the default configuration file. Do I have to put any parameters in there, into another configuration file or some place else?
Do you mean by: "development server" the actual database? In this case I'm doomed, I'm afraid. The only database that I can use for this purpose is the production database, and I neither have the slightest chance to alter it, nor is it possible to get get its schema. Even if something like it might exist, I won't get access to it.
Again, thanks a lot.
Cheers
Mark.

it is the one on which you develop and compile your program.

Ask your DBA to grant the roles by default to the account you compile the program with.

You have to give the connection parameter either in the configuration file or on the proc command line.

Developer should have NO access to the production server.
Create a database to develop on it.
