Bugs fixed in the 10.2.0.5 Patch Set

As you may already know, the terminal 10gR2 patch set (10.2.0.5) has been released recently on the Linux x86 & x86-64. Today I’ve installed 32-bit version on a test machine and was going to have a look on the Doc ID 1088172.1 for list of bugs fixed in this patch set, but there were almost nothing about “list of bugs”. However in reality this document does contain the list – it’s just commented in HTML :) So, I saved it, edited + replaced ugly javascript “links” to the bugs with direct links using couple of regular expressions and here it is – now I have the list of bugs fixed in the 10.2.0.5 patch set. Probably it’s not final, but it’s no doubt better than nothing.

Update May 19: 10.2.0.5 is available for Solaris x86-64 and Solaris SPARC.
Update #2 Aug 9: 10.2.0.5 is re-released for Linux x86 and is now called 10.2.0.5.0a. See Doc ID 1156958.1 for details.

    When we already have oracle 11GR2 there for sometime in the market, why would anyone want to go to oracle 10.2.0.5?

    I agree, moving from 10 to 11G is a major exercise. But,
    again, when we go from any version to 10.2.0.5, it requires considerable amount of effort and testing, which would be worth spending directly on Oracle 11GR2??

    Thanks,

      Hello Sarayu,

      good question. I think 10.2.0.5 is well-suited for “old” applications which can survive database’ minor version change but won’t work with major upgrade. Amount of effort required for an upgrade to 10.2.0.5 or 11gR2 depends on many input variables and I think there are cases in which 10.2.0.5 will require less efforts comparing to the 11gR2 upgrade.
