Oracle Database Daylight Saving Time Upgrade Guide

March 11 approaches - if you haven't determined whether your systems will be affected by the DST changes this year, this guide we just posted on OTN will step you through that process.


So what support is Oracle giving to user that use 10g express, and don't have a metalink account to download the patch? Do we download express and re-install?

There is no such patch available; in fact there are no patches issued for XE at all. A manual workaround is available via MetaLink for SE/EE customers who also have XE installs, however.

Thanks, Justin. However, since Oracle is not requiring XE-only customers to have a metalink account, and if there is no DST patch to download for XE, please consider making the manual workaround available on the Oracle OTN website (e.g., in a white paper, guide, etc.), or maybe link to it from this topic: Thanks. :)

In fact I have recommend this to product management; hopefully we can make that happen. If so I'll let you know.
