RE: Oracle 10Why?
Because Oracle tries to follow (stupidly) MS in some regards?

  Sure, the Oracle 'boy' did demo this auto patching stuff and it all looked pretty impressive..... One more check-mark in the list of things the DBAs do today, that can be taken away from them :)

  But my little brain kept wondering......     ..... as to why would Oracle come up with this wonderful feature? Why can't they use such brilliant Developers to concentrate on thoroughly testing their code so it does not need a lot of patchwork. Patching should be an exception, not a routine procedure that needs automation !!

  BTW.. The new release may not be called 10i, after all.

    Did find out that it will automatically download and install all patches and OEM will allow it to be scheduled so that you don't actually have to do anything. I think the boy who demoed that said it was a wonderful new feature.

    So, did you get to see Oracle 10 in action at the IOUG?

    I wasn't there, but am curious.
