We currently do Oracle development for customers, but we don't run any production databases ourselves. It's all for R&D purposes. How do we go about getting patches to the databases so we can have the same version of database as our customers do?
Do we have to acquire a license in order to get patches?
Also, what's the latest version of 9i anyhow? We have the base install of 18.104.22.168 installed here.
Also, forgive me, I am an Oracle newbie for the most part.
