It wont be much, as you expected that most people are still using Oracle9i AS, and seems Oracle10g AS is too new for us.

My client has recently set-up an Oracle 10G App Server and Oracle 10G DB on a development server for me (Windows 2003 server!!). I am doing project development with JDeveloper 10G and TopLink.

So far it seems stable, but it's way too early to comment on that fully (especially since it's not in production yet).

Your system is worked on Windows platform. Would it be testing site, or it will be plotted to Unix-based server?

Dev, test, and production boxes will remain on Windows...

As an aside, they DO have a few RHEL boxes in their enterprise, but they want the App server to go on their Unisys ES7000 box (which is Windows).

I had bad experiences with MS servers, with Oracle9i AS + Oracle8i DB. And thus, we are now trying to avoid nonapplication servers on MS platforms.

When performing OLTP, if the number of data cubes we generated are too much and some processes (rollup/slide down the cubes) are going on, the system seems cannot handle it gracefully. It just hangs!!!

Based on what I've seen, an increasing number of shops are using 10gAS. I don't have any numbers handy but that's the general impression I'm getting. I've worked on the product since it was iAS (and even OAS) and I'll say the product has changed quite a bit even though it is still Apache based. I really didn't care for 9iAS V2 (9.0.2) as I thought it was buggy. That was the first release where they based the product on OC4J. However the 9.0.4 release (aka 10gAS) is much easier to work with (more stable too) and I'd recommend people go to that version if possible.

Thanks,
Mike

I'd also recommend 10gAS over 9iAS. I had nothing but problems with 9iAS, particularly with JDeveloper.

The new JDev + 10gAS is almost a compelling solution if you're an Oracle shop...
