'Updateable Snapshots' and Oracle 9i Standard Edition

Are 'Updateable Snapshots' possible with Oracle 9i Standard Edition? We have three servers. Two are on Master Replication....

The second and third are on Updateable Snapshot -- data flows from both sides. Presently we are using Enterprise version. We want to shift to Standard version if the functionality is supported.

With standard you get Basic Replication functionality which provides bi-directional replication with automated conflict detection and resolution supports configurations that include a SINGLE updatable master site with multiple updatable or read-only snapshot sites.

Enterprise supports Advanced Replication which includes basic replication plus multi-master replication functionality. Advanced Replication includes online DML during replication environment changes, Replication Manager, and parallel propagation to maximize throughput.

So, if you need to have more than one master, standard won't work.
