Beta of Oracle Database Upgrade Is In The Wings

[From eWeek]

Oracle Corp. aficionados gathering next week at the IOUG Live! 2003 conference in Orlando, Fla., are expected to discuss the impending beta release--and perhaps even the beta code itself--of the company's next big database upgrade.

Oracle officials declined to comment on the database update, which is provisionally known as Oracle 10i although the Redwood Shores, Calif., company says that name has not been selected. But several members of IOUG, the International Oracle User Group, said they have seen documentation for the beta and expect the software any day.

One Oracle guru said that the beta is already out and that it contains changes that well might entail grueling migration work on the part of database administrators. Donald Burleson, CEO of Burleson Oracle Consulting and author of the Oracle Press book on SQL tuning, "Oracle High Performance SQL Tuning," pointed to a note sent out earlier this year to subscribers of Oracle Support Services' OracleMetaLink, an online support feature for Oracle customers. The note outlined planned de-support of the RBO (rule-based optimizer) in 10i.
