GemConnect requires Oracle libclntsh.so.10.1 library

GemConnect currently requires that the Oracle libclntsh.so.10.1 library be available in the $LD_LIBRARY_PATH. Otherwise a library load failure will occur when the GemConnect liboraapi library is loaded.  This will cause problems using newer versions of Oracle (11 and 12).  GemConnect *will* work on Oracle 11 and 12, but needs a symbolic link from the available libclntsh.so.X.1 library to libclntsh.so.10.1.


Establish a symbolic link in the Oracle library directory to the available libclntsh.so library:

For example, for Oracle 12:

unix>  ln -s libclntsh.so.12.1 libclntsh.so.10.1
