I need some information regarding Differences between 8.1.6 and 8.1.7, 8i & 9i.
Could someone please give me link of Oracle While Papers explaining the above differences.
I'll really appreciate that.
Although 8.1.7 does contain additional features than 8.1.6 it is essentially 8.1.6 with bug fixes:
Metalink Note - 120613.1
Oracle9i is very different from Oracle8i. You can look at some of the new features at:
Metalink Note - 190190.1
plus you should forget about 8.1.6 if you thinking of implementing 8i, it is NOT supported
Thanks Tim & Pando!
Have a great day!
8i is still supported. Not much longer, not for many people, but supported nonetheless. You can find support/desupport information on MetaLink.
