Look under development tools, nor RDBMS.

Subject: RE: License to use Pro*C

I wouldn't say that I'm an Oracle license specialist, but IIRC Pro*C has
been included in the basic license since a couple of releases. The last
release I remember you needed a separate license was 5, but maybe it was
the case in 6 as well.

Focusing on 9i,
shows what components need separate licenses. Pro*C isn't one of them.
De options markes with a separate license note are:
- Advanced security
- Change Management Pack
- Diagnostics Pack
- Internet Directory (for general purpose LDAP usage)
- Label Security
- Partitioning
- Spatial
- Tuning Pack
- Advanced Analytic Services - Data Mining

However, Oracle licensing details aren't available in a prominently
visable clear matrix on their website, it's more or less obfuscated,
hidden in all sorts of documents. Otherwise these questions might not
arise so often in this list.....
Therefore, I need a disclaimer here: The observation that you do not
need to license Pro*C separately is just my personal observation, and
final answers about licensing are only available from authorized Oracle

        It may be slightly off topic.
        Does anyone aware of the licensing terms for Pro*C in 9i EE. Do
        have to pay any additional license fee to use Pro*C?
        Thanks in advance
