    Pro*C

    Hi All,

    I have assigned a work in Pro*C. I want to know what is the advantage of using Pro*C for application development over SQL server application development in VC++ IDE.

    I 'll be thankful to u all....

    The main advantage here is : the pro*C precompiler is built by Oracle, so logically it is ** fully ** adapted to work with Oracle databases, this way all the Oracle features (for what your customer paid a lot of $$$) will be here to be used, naturally . Yes, you could develop directly in VC++, but VC++ is built by MS, therefore the native components of this tool (of course) are optimized to use in SQLserver....
    Another point : in pro*C and Oracle db being products of the same soft-house (Oracle) of course whe things go wrong, this is the only provider, the only Support source to be contacted.... Many many enterprises prefers this way.

    Not quite true. The Pro*C pre-compiler cannot cope with all Oracle features. For example, you have to use dynamic SQL if you want to use a query that includes a scalar subquery.
