Difference between 9.2.0.1.0 and 9.2.0.4

Hi,
What is the difference between oracle versions 9.2.0.1 and 9.2.0.4 .
What does each number in the version stands for ?
Moreover I had installed 9.2.0.1 in HP UX , and I want to upgrade it to 9.2.0.5, From where can I get the patch???

Re: Difference between 9.2.0.1.0 and 9.2.0.4

hi,
9.2.0.0 is the base release
9.2.0.1 is the base release with patchset 1
...
9.2.0.1 is the base release with patchset 4
9.2.0.1 is the base release with patchset 5

so to get to 9.2.0.5, you must install patchset 5 which is available from Metalink.

Patchset: 3501955
Description: ORACLE 9I DATABASE SERVER RELEASE 2 - PATCH SET 4 VERSION 9.2.0.5.0
Product: Oracle Database Family
Release: Oracle 9.2.0.5
Last Updated: 02-APR-2004
Size: 567M (595387250 bytes)

hope this helps!

Re: Difference between 9.2.0.1.0 and 9.2.0.4

patches can be found on metalink.oracle.com

you can indeed use patch 9.2.0.5 to patch all 9.2.x versions.

There are some pretty serious java functionality issues in the unpatched release of that databse.

We're currently pretty stable with v 9.2.0.4 but have one outstanding issue that may force us to 9.2.0.5

I would not run production on the lower version.
