It has been 19 months since the GA of OBIEE11g and its third incarnation (188.8.131.52) is celebrating its one-month-birthdaytoday. Time to make a point on the support situation for all OBIEE 10gimplementations out there:
The last 10gR3 versions (10.1.3.4.x) willreach the end of the Permier Support lifecycle in 4 months, July 2012.
The full documentation for lifetime supportof Fusion Middleware products can be found here, on the Oracle website(last updated February 2012). The screenshot above can be found on page13 of the pdf.
So to wrap up: the product has had more thanone and a half years to mature, Oracle provided us with two new versionsince the release and with the end of premier support quickly coming up,this is really the moment to start thinking about upgrading your 10g solutions!
