Hi,

I want to know what are the the types of project which uses Pro *c,

We use oracle sql-pl/sql for database development (Calling stored procedures from java or other programming languagues). Similarly we have forms and reports and OWB and other tools.

I am bit curious about Pro C , where normally its used ?

Regards,

It is used by those who have C programs and those who don't want to use Java for instance.
Do you ask you why you use Java?

Java, can be used as a web based application,and oracle can be a backend for it.

How C/Pro C would be used ?

C is like Java to create application, Pro*C is like SQLJ to create Oracle application.

Yes you can.
Any scenario, all scenarii, everything you can do with Java or any other programming language can be done with C.

I don't know (and don't care), ask all GUI editors.
Why do you want to know what programming language they used?

That's fine !!

Actually I have given an Interview for a company,which told me that they work on Pro*C, so wanted to check what sort of applications that they do.

Never mind, thanks for your help.

As I said (almost) all applications can be develop in Pro*C.
So your customer application can be anything and no external example can help you to know what you will have to meet with.

Yeah, that's true..My Intension was to check some external examples,

Will Pro*C involves any background applications(like windows service running and all)

No but a Pro*C program can be a service itself.
Pro*C is just a language (actually an extension of C language) and a precompiler.

Ohh yeah !!

Let me start spending some time in understanding Pro*C, i would dfntly have some practical questions on this rather than guessing too much.

Thanks Michel.

One last question,

When we compile Pro*C program, a .c file will be generated...Can we make it an .exe (just as normal C/C++ applications).

And when we run the program in other systems,is it mandatory that we should have oracle database connected to it.
