What do you mean by "supported"?

Warning: this is a very esoteric platform.  You may encounter problems  
on it that can only be debugged on that platform.

It's not clear from the description what sorts of problems you're  
actually having.  It's also not clear precisely which versions of ACE/ 
TAO you're using.

If you're truly using 1.3 and 1.4, you should upgrade.  As Doug  
pointed out, they are ancient and many bugs have been fixed since then.

OCI has both 1.3 and 1.4-based distributions (called 1.3a and 1.4a),  
so if you are bound to 1.3 at the source level for some reason, you  
might try using OCI's 1.3a, and use the latest patch level.  OCI can  
also offer you support on that version (actually, like others, we can  
offer support on any version if necessary, though it's easier to  
support versions with which we're familiar and have a history).

You can download 1.3a for free from http://www.theaceorb.com/ 
downloads; you can contact sales at ociweb.com to learn about support
