Oracle has available a developers toolkit if you want to make a "native" interface from C++ to Oracle.  

But most developers choose to use the Oracle ODBC driver.

Check with your Oracle sales rep. for the developer product.

You probably got the ODBC driver with your Oracle software.

Depending on what you're trying to do, there are simpler options than OCI.  The Pro C/C++ precompiler is an option that lets you embed SQL in your code, then run it through a program Oracle provides that creates all the OCI code necessary to retrieve that data from the database.

There are also a few OCI wrappers that greatly simplify the task of accessing the database for your typical data retrievals.  Three of them are found at the bottom of this page: http://www.orafaq.com/faqoci.htm.

I recently switched from using straight OCI to the Oracle Template Library (OTL) package mentioned.  I've found it to greatly simplify your typical database accesses.  The page includes docs and over a hundred examples.  

Depending on exactly what you're trying to do, give one of these libraries a try.
