Hello everybody!
We are using Oracle standard edition 10.2.0.2 on Solaris x86-64 platform, and I'm trying to estimate reasonability of movement to 10.2.0.4.
A disadvantage I see is according to 10.2.0.2 "Availability and Known Issues" amount of "issues introduced" is about 10, but in 10.2.0.4 there are 63 "issues introduced", according to similar document. I suspect that some of bugs can be eliminated by applying 10.2.0.4.3 patchset, but I'm not sure that all of them will be eliminated.
A benefit of 10.2.0.4 (and especially 10.2.0.4.3) is presence of all necessary critical patches (up to Jan2010).
Can you provide me any suggestions in this situation? And do you know does the game is worth the candle?

Thanks in advance, guys! Smile

Noone can answer for you.
Do you experiment bugs in your site?
Are you exposed to security breaches?
You know the pros and cons yet.

Michel

If you have no problem with the current version and have not to care about security breaches then why do you want to change this version and maybe get new bugs?

Sorry for my English - I didn't correctly understand your previous question about security breaches. Security is rather important for me, but as for now I didn't find really serious problems in 10.2.0.2 except Note:392673.1* - SQL may execute in wrong schema and possibility to grant DBA role having CREATE PROCEDURE privilege. Even so I'm not sure about cost of eliminating this bugs ...
