Yes, that's a good idea - it sounds like you're using a VERY old
version!  In general, if you're using OCI's version of TAO we recommend
sending your questions to taosupport at ociweb.com since they provide
excellent commercial support for their releases of TAO.

There's no reason that things shouldn't work, but I suggest you contact
OCI since you're using their version of TAO.
