32 bit application on 64 bit oracle9i with 64 bit HP-UX 11

32 bit application on 64 bit oracle9i with 64 bit HP-UX 11

am I able to compile my PRO*C program and create 32 bit application if I install oracle9i 64 bit on 64 bit HP-UX 11 kernel?

If answer is yes then how?


Has anyone installed oracle9i on 32 bit HP? When you run getconf KERNEL_BITS on HP - UX what do you see before you installed oracle? - Thanks

Read the prior thread.

Now that we're in the world of 64 bit OS, you have flexibility. You an compile and run 32 bit apps on a 64 bit HP-UX system. I'm currently running ias 32 bit on 64 bit HP-UX 11.11 in production on rp5450 boxes. No trobles at all, the link program for the 32 bit ias works great. The back end database is 64 bit.

I can't give you compile instructions, but most 32 bit applications will work after compiling with their normal compile instructions. You may have to set a variable or add a command line switch.

Not all 32 bit apps are supported on 64 bit HP-UX but many are.
