Will a query developed in Oracle Express run in Oracle 11g

I work with Business Objects tools like Crystal Reports and WebI.  We support clients with many and varied databases.

We also provide tools to help the user develop reports and run reports.  One of the tools we have developed helps us to size the users installation based on the history of reports they have been running over a period of time.

I have developed a BO Universe that works very well with SQL Server to facilitate retrieving data from the BO audit database.  We have a new client who wants to run the reports but they have an Oracle installation.

I have converted the universe to "Öracle" using Oracle Express for the BO audit database.  The reports run correctly against it.  Can I install the universe on a full product Oracle system and provide the same capability?

If you are talking about the free Oracle Express Edition and it was 11g, anything developed on it should run on any other 11g version.

Oracle Express doesn't come with anything too fancy so you shouldn't have to worry about any 'option' the full version might have not installed.

It would also likely run just fine in 10g and 12c.  Oracle is pretty good about taking a long time to actually remove deprecated stuff.

Yes it is 11g free version.

I am not using anything in Oracle Express except the database.

My BO skills are so old I shouldn't even say I have them (mid-90's) but from the very little I remember, you should be good.  Now that I've said it, something will burp...

I don't remember BO doing anything all that weird when it comes to the database layer.

Thanks for the support.  The universe and reports ran in the clients environment.
