Question: How to determine products installed after Database created?
After a database is created with n products (like Java,Intermedia,XML,...) is there a data dictionary view
that is like v$version which specifes the products installed ?
If yes for Oracle 8i and Oracle 9i ....
[Usefull especially when maintaining a DB that someone else created]
jmodic - Super Moderator is correct, davey23uk answered my question;
DBA_REGISTRY works for Oracle 9i
What about Oracle 8i ?

i do believe dba_registry might hold what you are after or v$option
v$option is a good choice, but it show only products installed inside the db, and do not show installation´s date. To know dates, and/or about other products, IF anyone remove them, OUI make some log files (in C:\Program files\Oracle\Inventory\logs , or something like it), file names are made of the install dates, and inside each file you will find (here im my example I installed Oracle docs in a Portuguese-language machine, so the user messages are in Portuguese, but the principle is the same for anyone ):
A versão do Installer é 188.8.131.52.0a

You get the dates from DBA_CATALOG. The original poster asked for any dictionary view holding that information and davey23uk gave him a very concise and accurate answer.
