Currently I have multuple Oracle installations on the one machine. These installations house the same application at different development stages.

The application is highly date driven and each of the different installations requires a different system date for testing purposes.

If anyone knows of an easy work around, please help me.

Hi,

The best work around is to have a table which stores a date field.(say application date). Use this date in your application instead of sysdate. Updating the application date in the table can be a oracle job which does this every night and it can be an end of day(EOD) process.

Regards,
Pradeep

Thanks for you help. We had already come up with that idea. We would use an offset from the actual system date.

The problem is that the application is made up of over 700 forms, over 150 reports and web pages including ASPs. The work involved in changing every SYSDATE to the other function call is massive.

I was hoping that there was a setting within the oracle product that would provide an offset to the actual system date. I know it can be done using 9AS but we are using 8i and won't be upgrading for a while.

Again, thanks for you input.
