Preface

Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database (TimesTen) is a relational database that is memory-optimized for fast response and throughput. The database resides entirely in memory at runtime and is persisted to disk storage for the ability to recover and restart. Replication features allow high availability. TimesTen supports standard application interfaces JDBC, ODBC, and ODP.NET, in addition to Oracle interfaces PL/SQL, OCI, and Pro*C/C++. TimesTen is available separately or as a cache for Oracle Database.

This guide provides:

Audience

Oracle Database documentation is also available on the Oracle Technology network. This may be especially useful for Oracle Database features that TimesTen supports, but does not document.

TimesTen supports multiple platforms. Unless otherwise indicated, the information in this guide applies to all supported platforms. The term Windows refers to all supported Windows platforms. The term UNIX applies to all supported UNIX and Linux platforms. See "Platforms" in Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database Release Notes for specific platform versions supported by TimesTen.

Convention Meaning
boldface Boldface type indicates graphical user interface elements associated with an action, or terms defined in text.
italic Italic type indicates book titles, emphasis, or placeholder variables for which you supply particular values.
monospace Monospace type indicates commands within a paragraph, URLs, code in examples, text that appears on the screen, or text that you enter.
italic monospace Italic monospace type indicates a variable in a code example that you must replace. For example:

Replace TimesTen_install_dir with the path of your TimesTen installation directory.

[ ] Square brackets indicate that an item in a command line is optional.
{ } Curly braces indicate that you must choose one of the items separated by a vertical bar ( | ) in a command line.
| A vertical bar separates alternative arguments.
. . . An ellipsis (. . .) after an argument indicates that you may use more than one argument on a single command line.
% The percent sign indicates the UNIX shell prompt.

TimesTen documentation uses these variables to identify path, file and user names:

release or rr The first three parts in a release number, with or without dots. The first three parts of a release number represent a major TimesTen release. For example, 1122 or 11.2.2 represents TimesTen 11g Release 2 (11.2.2).
jdk_version One or two digits that represent the major version number of the Java Development Kit (JDK) release. For example, 5 represents JDK 5.
