As I keep stating, not all Oracle contracts and licensing agreements are the same and I doubt you would find any two that are alike. Their website is a good start but CANNOT answer the question for YOUR site.
Licensing questions should only be addressed to YOUR Oracle sales person because all crystal balls have a firewall and cannot see your agreement. Received on Thu Mar 05 2009 - 15:50:11 CST
