Symptoms

Recently a lot of customers have run into problems with using rwrun(rwrun.exe or rwrun.sh) from 9i/10g/11g on their production environments. Most of the times the problems concern with running larger reports.
What a general perception is that the rwrun (rwrun.exe or rwrun.sh) is equivalent in functionality to rwrun60 used in 6i.
However this is not the case. This note shall try to clear this misconception.

N.B. rwrun.exe or rwrun.sh or rwrun.bat is hereafter referred to as rwrun.
