The highest revision of Oracle database supported by Blackboard for CE/Vista is 10g. Wondering if other Bb clients have noticed Oracle 10g leaves Premier Support on July 31, 2010. The first year of Extended SUpport fees are waived, so July 31, 2011 we’ll have to start paying extra money to Oracle unless Blackboard starts supporting 11g. (I’m guessing Blackboard isn’t going to discount what we have to pay to Oracle from the licensing costs. )
Maybe if enough clients complain, then Blackboard will start moving in the direction of supporting 11g? I’ve heard rumors of people already running 11g.
