I thought you could only reach an Oracle database with an Oracle 10g client? I know that we receive the following when trying to connect to an Oracle database...  

ERROR: ORA-03134: Connections to this server version are no longer supported.

10g will connect to 8i.

10g will not connect to 7.x however.

If I remember correctly, 10g client will not connect to 8i database.

OTOH, 9i client will.

Some developers are starting a development project. Initially their database will be Oracle 8i. Later we will upgrade the database to Oracle 10g. The developers are asking if they can start with their client PCs at Oracle 10g. Does anybody have any experiences with 10g client / 8i database? I would check on Metalink, but I think all the 8i information has been removed.
