Oracle Exalytics: What Call Interface Should Be Specified For TimesTen Connection Pool In OBIEE 11g Admin Tool (Doc ID 1467573.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 29, 2016

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Server Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.1.6.0 and later
Oracle Exalytics Software - Version 1.0.0.0.0 and later
Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database - Version 11.2.2.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation and Administration Guide for Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) describes the TimesTen ODBC settings in Section 4.7 Configuring the ODBC Connection from Oracle Business Intelligence to Oracle TimesTen and Section 4.8 Mapping Instances of Oracle TimesTen into the Physical Layer of the Oracle BI Repository.  It states:

"When mapping an Oracle TimesTen source into the Physical layer of the Oracle BI repository, ensure that the database type and version are set correctly in the Database field of the General tab of the Database dialog. You must also ensure that the Call interface field in the General tab of the Connection Pool dialog is set correctly. For example, for Oracle TimesTen version 11.2.2., use the ODBC 3.5 call interface.

This is somewhat ambiguous.  What call interface should actually be specified for a TimesTen connection pool in Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) 11g Admin Tool?
