ODBC Connection in Eclipse for C++ and Vertica

Is there any way to connect Eclipse with ODBC ?

I installed unixODBC. Then i used the following program to connect Vertica with ODBC.

    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <iostream>
    #include <assert.h>
    #include <sql.h>
    #include <sqlext.h>
    #include <sqltypes.h>

    using namespace std;
    int main()
        SQLRETURN ret;   // Stores return value from ODBC API calls
        SQLHENV hdlEnv;  // Handle for the SQL environment object
        // Allocate an a SQL environment object
        ret = SQLAllocHandle(SQL_HANDLE_ENV, SQL_NULL_HANDLE, &hdlEnv);

        // Set the ODBC version we are going to use to
        // 3.
        ret = SQLSetEnvAttr(hdlEnv, SQL_ATTR_ODBC_VERSION,

        // Allocate a database handle.
        SQLHDBC hdlDbc;
        ret = SQLAllocHandle(SQL_HANDLE_DBC, hdlEnv, &hdlDbc);

        // Connect four times. If load balancing is on, client should
        // connect to different nodes.
        for (int x=1; x <= 4; x++) {

            // Connect to the database using SQLDriverConnect. Set
            // ConnectionLoadBalance to 1 (true) to enable load
            // balancing.
            cout << endl << "Connection attempt #" << x << "... ";
            const char *connStr = "DSN=mydsn;ConnectionLoadBalance=0;"

            ret = SQLDriverConnect(hdlDbc, NULL, (SQLCHAR*)connStr, SQL_NTS,
                   NULL, 0, NULL, SQL_DRIVER_NOPROMPT );
            if(!SQL_SUCCEEDED(ret)) {
                cout << "failed. Exiting." << endl;
            } else {
                cout << "succeeded" << endl;
            // We're connected. Query the v_monitor.current_session table to
            // find the name of the node we've connected to.

            // Set up a statement handle
            SQLHSTMT hdlStmt;
            SQLAllocHandle(SQL_HANDLE_STMT, hdlDbc, &hdlStmt);

            ret = SQLExecDirect( hdlStmt, (SQLCHAR*)"SELECT node_name FROM "
                "V_MONITOR.CURRENT_SESSION;", SQL_NTS );

            if(SQL_SUCCEEDED(ret)) {
                // Bind varible to column in result set.
                SQLTCHAR node_name[256];
                ret = SQLBindCol(hdlStmt, 1, SQL_C_TCHAR, (SQLPOINTER)node_name,
                    sizeof(node_name), NULL);
                while(SQL_SUCCEEDED(ret = SQLFetchScroll(hdlStmt, SQL_FETCH_NEXT,1))) {
                    // Print the bound variables, which now contain the values from the
                    // fetched row.
                    cout << "Connected to node " << node_name << endl;
            // Free statement handle
            cout << "Disconnecting." << endl;
            ret = SQLDisconnect( hdlDbc );
        // When done, free all of the handles to close them
        // in an orderly fashion.
        cout << endl << "Freeing handles..." << endl;
        SQLFreeHandle(SQL_HANDLE_DBC, hdlDbc);
        SQLFreeHandle(SQL_HANDLE_ENV, hdlEnv);
        cout << "Done!" << endl;

However, I am getting the following errors:

undefined reference to SQLAllocHandle' undefined reference toSQLSetEnvAttr'
undefined reference to SQLAllocHandle' undefined reference toSQLDriverConnect'
undefined reference to SQLFreeHandle' undefined reference toSQLFreeHandle'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

I think it has something to do with the library. Does anybody know where is the default library for unixodbc ? I tried /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libodbcinst.so , but it still shows errors.

Invoking: GCC C++ Linker
g++ -L/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu -o "hello2" ./src/hello2.o -l/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libodbcinst.so
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -l/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libodbcinst.so
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

What I am doing wrong here ? Does anybody have any idea?
