Bugs when migrating from Oracle 8i to Oracle 9i on Unix

Are there any bugs found when migrating from Oracle 8i to Oracle 9i on Unix? We have a PowerBuilder application that calls the stored procedures of Oracle. Can anyone please guide me on the possible threats in migrating to Oracle 9i?

A quick answer will help me as we are very near the migration date.


I don't know of any major bugs on 9.2.0 that have not been patched or worked around. I'd definitely recommend 9.2.0.4 as a stable release, and I have had a lot of good luck with it at multiple sites with multiple applications. You may want to be sure that your problems are database problems and not problems with the application front end (PowerBuilder) as I've heard lots of people having problems with PowerBuilder applications recently, but haven't worked directly with any myself.
