Avalanche Client Runtime Package
Some tools require the installation of the Avalanche Client Runtime package.
The Actian Client (formerly Client Runtime) is a client package that simplifies deployment of client-only installations running ODBC and JDBC applications across an enterprise with many clients and few servers. The package is smaller than a full server installation because it excludes some features that come with server clients, for example, ESQL/C. Actian Client is simpler to install because only relevant client-side configuration options and components are included: ODBC driver, JDBC driver, and the The Actian SQL CLI, a Line-based Terminal Monitor.
You may download the Avalanche Client Runtime package from Actian’s Electronic Software Distribution (see link below). The Actian Client is never patched. To update your local copy, you must download and install a newer version.
Note:  If you download an RPM package, you must install as root. Ingbuild packages do not require elevated installation privileges.
To download and install the Actian Client package from ESD
2. On the ESD download page, select your local machine’s operating system from the PLATFORM dropdown.
3. Scroll down to the Actian Avalanche Client Runtime section and expand it, if necessary.
4. Click the HTTP button to download the driver. For example:
5. Save the Zip, tgz, or tar.Z file to a location on your local machine.
6. Read the readme file that is posted with the package.
7. Follow the installation instructions for your platform.
This gives you the Avalanche JDBC driver, iijdbc.jar.
