Recently I heard that Oracle 10g (we are currently using 10gR2 and 10gAS) will be end-of-life in 2010. Is this true ? If not then when and how the support will be handled after the product is end-of-life ? Thanks.

  • Yes, this is true.
    Which means 10gR2 reaches extended support, which means only fixes for known problems, and no new fixes.

    See for yourself ...

    Go to http://www.oracle.com
    Hover over the Support menu link at the top and click on 'Premier Support'
    Scroll down to, and click on 'Lifetime Support' link
    Scroll down to, and click on 'Lifetime Support Policy: Oracle Technology Products (PDF)' link

    The information is on page 4. The words in the document prior to that point are useful, and I recommend reading them.
