Dear Rdb Product Family Customers,
Customers often ask us about obsolescence dates for older versions of Oracle Rdb so they can plan appropriately for future upgrades. Oracle Rdb and Oracle CODASYL DBMS are covered by Oracle's Lifetime Support Policy that consists of 3 support stages:
Following the link above will show you the details of the support we provide at each stage. The specific support dates for each version of Oracle Rdb can be found in the Lifetime Support page. For your convenience, the Rdb Lifetime Support dates for all currently shipping versions of Oracle Rdb and CODASYL DBMS are also listed below. As future versions of the Rdb family of products are released, we will continue to update the schedule shown in the Lifetime Support Policy page.
If you have questions about these dates or your upgrade plans please contact Oracle Support using Metalink or your telephone support access number.
