You're right, and that's my fault, and something I hope to fix this
In the interim, you will want the latest hdbc_*.tar.gz file, then the
latest hdbc-odbc_*.tar.gz file. You will connect to Oracle using the ODBC
backend for HDBC.
I can't help you set up your Oracle ODBC drivers, but once you have that
going, connecting up to it should be fairly trivial.
As far as example code goes, I've written a few programs that use HDBC.
