I want to try to use XTTS to migrate a database from Solaris to Linux (for Oracle Apps)
As per Oracle, this is not certified.
So I have this question on the difference between certified and supported. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Not Certified: Oracle have not really tested this on their internal environments and validated it. It does not mean it wont work but it is just that Oracle has not got around to test it and validate it. It would still work.
Not Supported: Oracle does not have plans to get it working or that would just not work. Example would be trying to place multiple asm instances on the same box.

Thank you
