Software Components

Use

You install installation packages that contain only individual components of the database software. You can do this to install missing components without having to update components unnecessarily.

The installation of software components is more complex than the installation of component groups or installation profiles, and requires the user to understand and take into account the dependencies determined by the content or versions of the software.

Since this installation is not interactive and can only run in the background, you need to determine any other components you have to install and the order in which they are to be installed beforehand. The installation program terminates the installation as soon as it recognizes that dependencies have not been taken into account. For this reason, you should only use this installation type in special cases.

The database software is split into the following components:

Name

Description

APO LC APPS (from APO Version 4.0) or APO COM

For SAP liveCache in the SAP APO system only: libraries with APO liveCache routines

Base

Programs for registering the installation, uninstall tool, InstallRegistryViewer, and programs that the SAP application server needs to access the database system (including Database Manager CLI, XUSER and SQLCLI)

Database Kernel

Database kernel with runtime environment

DB Analyzer

Database Analyzer: tool for analyzing database performance

JDBC

MaxDB JDBC driver for accessing the MaxDB database system

Loader

Loader: tool for importing and exporting data

ODBC

ODBC driver for accessing the MaxDB database system

PCR<version>

Precompiler runtime package:

Contains runtime libraries for applications that were created with the C/C++-Precompiler for Embedded SQL.

Can exist in several versions in the local installation directory

Perl Interface

Perl interface

Python Interface

Python interface

Redist Python

Python interface and extensions

Server Utilities

Tools for administration of the database kernel (including XCONS)

SQLDBC

Object-oriented C++ interface for accessing the MaxDB database system; contains, among other things, a non-versioned SQLDBC library

SQLDBC <version>

Versioned SQLDBC library

Web Tools

Web server and web-based database tools (WebDBM)

You must place any names of software components that contain spaces in double quotation marks.
