OWB 11gR2 - Windows and Linux 64-bit clients available

In addition to the integrated release of OWB in the 11.2.0.3 Oracle database distribution, the following 64-bit standalone clients are now available for download from Oracle Support.

  • OWB 11.2.0.3 Standalone client for Windows 64-bit - 13365470

This is in addition to the previously released 32-bit client on Windows.

  • OWB 11.2.0.3 Standalone client for Windows 32-bit - 13365457

The support document Major OWB 11.2.0.3 New Features Summary has details for OWB 11.2.0.3 which include the following.

Exadata v2 and oracle Database 11gR2 support capabilities;
  • Support for Oracle Database 11gR2 and Exadata compression types
  • Even more partitioning: Range-Range, Composite Hash/List, System, Reference

Hi David,

This is very good news!! Up to now we have been using OWB 11gR2 client on a virtual machine with Windows XP 32 bit since we could not run it on our Windows 7 64-bit laptops.

The only question I have is: When will this be available for download? I could not find it yet on Oracle's download site.

Cheers,

Christopher

Will the 64-bit clients be incorporated with the database patch sets going forward (i.e. 11.2.0.4+)? Or, can the 64-bit stand-alone be installed into the same oracle home as a 64-bit database 11.2.0.3?

Hi Richard

Not sure on the 11.2.0.4, I will check. The 11.2.0.3 standalone should be installed into its own home.

Cheers
