Can anyone help me with how to work on Eclipse C++ IDE? I need a clear set of instructions on how to connect server and database as well as how to compile and run standalone codes?

Sounds like you need a course in c++, not Eclipse. Eclipse is just an IDE -- a programmer's tool, much like a hammer is to a carpenter. You don't learn how to build a house by asking how to use a hammer.

Ancient Dragon is right, but let me offer a few tips on how to hold the hammer.

  1. Make sure Eclipse and the C Development Tools are installed.
  2. Make sure you have a C++ compiler that will work with them. On Windows, I recommend MinGW w/MSYS.
  3. Make sure Eclipse can find your compiler.
  4. Make sure you have the libraries for what you're trying to do.
  5. Make sure they get linked in when you compile.
    Project->Properties->C/C++ Build->Settings->(Your Compiler) Linker->Libraries

And you're good to go.
