    test patch install

    Hi Friends,

    I want to test install an Oracle DB patch on the Development server,
    before I apply it on the production server, just for the "feel" of it.
    But unfortunately the the guy from Oracle had it installed on
    the development server just to prove that the installer is not
    corrupted :(

    Can I install the patch over and over again? Just want to do some
    practice (on dev server).

    Thanks a lot
