Oracle Application Server upgrade cheatsheets

Beth Pariseau Beth Pariseau Profile: Beth Pariseau

Over at SearchOracle.com, we’ve been going over a lot of reader feedback lately, looking for ways to improve the site and better meet our readers’ needs. Many of you have identified upgrades as one of your biggest job challenges—keeping up with the latest database and applications versions and patches takes a lot of time and effort. Our installation, upgrades and patches expert Maria Anderson answers dozens of questions every month on this topic. We’re also working on compiling a learning guide to further help you through the upgrade process.

For those of you considering an Oracle Application Server upgrade, check out Steven Chan’s Oracle 10g AS upgrade paths. Chan provides his personal “cheatsheet diagrams” to help you distinguish between the various AS releases, along with a key on how to read them.


p.s. Another update on the OTN blogs—the network now has a semantic web feature allowing for better navigation. Blogs are now organized by topic, date and author. One design snag: the button that takes you to the next page of recent entries is above the most recent 10 instead of below them. Makes for unnecessary scrolling.

    Thanks for the pointer, Elisa. I'm pleased to see your excellent blog in my referral logs. I think that many firms are still trying to understand how to communicate via blogs. This is a very different medium than controlled corporate websites filled with press releases and marketing-speak. I number Oracle in this group. As a company, I think we're still learning. There are several Oracle bloggers who realize that this medium is better-suited to reach out to customers after the sale, to provide concrete, detailed, and practical information to current users, rather than marketing materials aimed at prospective ones. We'll keep at it -- it takes time to bring everyone around to our way of thinking, of course. Thanks for your contributions to the Oracle community. I'm adding your blog to my own daily reading list. Regards, Steven Chan, Oracle
