Q

Different applications to connect to different Oracle versions

There are three different applications that I use to connect with Oracle. The problem is that each one is required to connect with a different Oracle version (8i, 9i and 10g). Is there a way to have all three applications running on the same computer?

If each application requires a different version of Oracle, then you can install all three versions of Oracle on the same server. Just make sure you install each software version in their own, separate ORACLE_HOME directory. You can then create three databases, one of each of the three versions. You will want to make sure that you follow the Optimal Flexible Architecture (OFA) guidelines to ensure that each version does not interfere with the other versions. You can find a copy of the OFA here.
