This is not a technical question but still thought it would be relevant to this forum .
i want to upgrade oracle from 8.1.7 to 9i and 8.1.7 to 10g
this i want to do it on trial version first and then on production .
what formalities do i need to follow ..
is it free upgrade or do we need to buy new 9i version.
if yes could anybody have idea on pricing .
i want to share your views before approching oracle .
do we need to pay even to do test databse upgrade
ofcourse enterprise edition .
