Hi,

Ansi C/C++ is required for proC i think. But you can use gcc if you don't want to pay for C++

This may or may not apply.

Oracle's products need to be linked on-site as part of their installation process. Some of Oracle's E-Business applications are written in C++ and require the C++ compiler to perform the link. If the system where the Oracle application is being installed has no other use for the C++ compiler, purchasing the compiler just to install Oracle products can be an unreasonable burden on the customer.
HP provides another solution: to use the software provided as an evaluation compiler to perform the link. The evaluation compiler kit has a time-limited compiler component, but allows C++ link operations indefinitely.

Then I could Install evaluation version and is OK.?

Thank you.

Re: C++ Compiler required for ORACLE Installation.

You *do not* require the C++ compiler to install Oracle database on HPUX. The link Tim provided is for Oracle e-business suite only and doesn't apply to the database.

As Kenan indicated, with the database you need C/C++ only if you are doing development work using Oracle Pro C/C++, which I doubt you are going to use if this database is for a SAP ECC 6.0 installation.

Can you point to the material that indicated you needed the compiler installed?

As mentioned by Kenan you need it for ProC.
And by Duncan, you may need it for Oracle e-business suite.

This is obsolete. There is a new product on 11.31 0803, aCC_link:
http://docs.hp.com/en/5992-3373/ch10s02.html

This enables aC++ linking.
This same product is also be available on Application Release media.

>Duncan: You *do not* require the C++ compiler to install Oracle database on HP-UX.

Right. The bundled C compiler should work find. Though Oracle documentation may say that the latest C/aC++ compiler patches are needed. In this case, you should ignore it if you have a newer version of the compiler or you don't have it at all.
