Speaking ahead of the Oracle Appsworld conference in San Diego next week, OAUG president Tom Wyatt said, "I want to ensure Oracle does not make the same mistakes as it did with 11i."
He said users faced a range of problems with 11i when it was first introduced, from performance issues to changes in functionality. Wyatt wants a clear message on quality from Oracle during next week's conference.
Last year, the OAUG successfully petitioned Oracle to extend support for the previous 10.7 release of Oracle Applications until June 2003.
At Appsworld the OAUG is planning to talk about a special interest group it set up in October to support users still running 10.7. Butler Group estimated that in December 2002, 2,600 business applications users were still running the 10.7 release.
Oracle is due to introduce a new business intelligence bundle for its Application Suite at Appsworld.
