All software will have bugs, it's normal that a piece of software that is complicated as Oracle will have some bugs. It does not matter what version you go to. What does matter is whether or not the bugs that are there will affect you in the way your application uses the software. And testing thoroughly is the best way to mitigate the risk of hitting one unexpectedly.
And yes... even SQL Server service packs fix lots of bugs => http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=921896
And some of these are not documented as their note says
" * Other fixes that are not documented may be included in the service pack."
" * This list will be updated when more articles are released."
all software has bugs. The bug you are refering to (bug7014646 : A complex query can fail during parse with ORA-600 [kkocxj : pjpCtx]) has a valid workaround:
There's a fix available - so I really don't see your point. You might either use the workaround or apply the patch on top of 10.2.0.4.
10.2.0.4 has more than 2000 bug fixes included. You may check Note:555579.1 for (in your environment!!!) necessary fixes on top of 10.2.0.4.
Thanks all for your reply
I upgraded our db from 9208 to 10204 and everything was ok. Last month i upgraded to 11107 and again without any ORa-600.
I think it depends on the system.
My opinium is to use higher version than if you can go to 11g
Thank you Tom for your input. Can you let know what OS do you have? We have a Windows 2003 server installed with 10.2.0.4 without any problem. Just worry about the HP Itanium box.
We have SuSE 10 on 32b or 64b Intel on all server.
We doesn't like win as server OS.
ok. Thanks again
