The MUST part means:
Designer 2.1.2 AND Designer 6.0/6.i when generates web modules, generates packages which exceeds
maximum package lenght, so I get "program too large" error... nice thing, ouch!
And Support won't fix this thing neither previous nor next versions of designer, so, I must upgrade db
Thanks a lot

Well must is a strong word. You never really have to upgrade Oracle unless you find a bug that Oracle does not already have a fix for. I still have one database here running 7.3.3 and just got rid of a 7.3.4 one.

I do believe though that to use Des2k 6i you need Oracle 8i. But you could just install another version of Oracle for that.

However, just last night I did the upgrade to 8.0.4 to 8.1.6 along with an major OS upgrade. No problems. It's not to complicated when its a supported upgrade which this is.

Just two questions:
- I've been doing almost everything but never a DBA. Now Oracle Support
  tells me I MUST upgrade my 8.0.4 database to a 8.1.x   It's over NT. Is as easy as it sounds? what should I care?   The database is not running any application. No users executing   anything, just some developers, some Oracle Education Trainers'   doing the labs, etc.
  In the box I have the database and some tools, I mean,   Dev2k 1.3, 2.1.2, 6.0; Des2k 1.3, 2.1.2, 6.0; an Owas 3.0; a WEBDB;   and some setups uses in curses of Oracle Education.   I can have the db down for a while but I can't lose it...   Any suggestion? besides "Perform a voodoo dance" as Dr. Nikolay   Kumanov recomended recently?
- As you could see I'd like to join a list more developers oriented
