1. Platforms

Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database is supported in these environments:

The Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database TTClasses library is compiled using the same compiler that is used for building the rest of the libraries for each platform. You can determine which compiler has been used by looking in install_dir/lib and noting the name of the compiler appended to libttclasses.so. For example, libttclasses.so.gcc346 is compiled using the gcc 3.4.3 compiler. To use another compiler, you must rebuild the TTClasses library.

On Windows, the default TTClasses libraries are built with Microsoft Visual C++ 6. You can find them in install_dir/lib and install_dir/bin. The TTClasses libraries are also built with Microsoft Visual C++ 7 and Microsoft Visual C++8 are in install_dir/ttclasses/vc7 and install_dir/ttclasses/vc8 respectively. To use these libraries instead of the libraries built with Microsoft Visual C++ 6, copy the ttclasses.dll to the install_dir/bin directory and the ttclasses.lib to the install_dir/lib directory.

2. Software requirements and installation

For software requirements please refer to the Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database Installation Guide.

3. Disk space requirements

The following table lists approximate disk space requirements for a typical installation. Requirements listed as "Movable" indicate that the component is installed in a user-specified file system at installation time. The variable install_dir represents the directory where the current release of TimesTen is installed. The TimesTen default installation directories for a root instance of TimesTen release 7.0 are:

For each operating system, TimesTen installs certain files in a system directory that cannot be moved. The table assumes a root instance and indicates which files are movable.

Add 30MB to the numbers in this table if you install the TimesTen documentation.
