Purpose

Oracle Streams Interoperability Support

Use this note to understand the Streams interoperability support for different Database versions of the Oracle Database.

Scope

Introduction

This note gives a summary of the support for interoperability between different Database versions when using Oracle Streams.

Note that this is a general guide for interoperability between Database version only for Oracle Streams. As propagation of messages in a Streams environment is performed using database links, please refer to <Note: 207303.1> for specific information about Client / Server / Interoperability Support Between Different Oracle Versions.

For a summary of the support status of each Oracle release see < Note: 161818.1>

General Policy

Oracle's general policy is to test and support each new Oracle release for compatibility with older releases thus:

- Test the NEW client to each OLDER server release where the OLDER release is still covered by Premier Support (formerly Primary Error Correction support) at the time that the NEW version is released.
- Test OLDER clients to the NEW server release where the OLDER release is still covered by Premier Support (formerly Primary Error Correction support) OR is in the first two years of Extended Support (formerly Extended Maintenance support).
- Tests between the NEW version and other OLDER releases may be added where Oracle deems it sensible to support interoperability between those releases.
