Announcing availability of 12.2.5 Mandatory Consolidated Patch 2 | Also: Windows 10 and MS IE 11 support

Hello All!

Value Chain Planning is announcing the availability of 22493520:R12.SCP_PF.C - VCP CONSOLIDATED PATCH 2 FOR R12.SCP_PF.C.DELTA.6.

This is a mandatory patch that replaces Consolidated Patch 1 for all 12.2.5 VCP customers.  Any customers on 12.2.5.1, new 12.2.5 customers, or customers that are upgrading to 12.2.5 need to apply this patch.

The patch addresses performance and other issues that could not be included in CP1, which was released on “day 1” for 12.2.5, but which we deem critical to mandate.


Other recently asked questions on tech certifications:
- Will PS, SNO, and Demantra run on Windows 10 client?
Yes, we have done base certification and  have not found issues when running with IE 11.  (MS Edge browser is not supported for any of our products at this moment due to issues with Forms and Java applets).

- When can we expect 12.1.3 and 12.2.4 to support IE 11 browser for ADF based screens (ASCP, IO)? (12.2.5 supports IE 11 already)
To support IE 11, we need customers to upgrade to a later version of WLS (as we rely on an ADF version that supports IE 11 that is part of a newer WLS version than what we have certified).  
For 12.1.3 and 12.2.4 we are looking at forced upgrades for people that are using ADF as we cannot maintain dual code lines to support multiple ADF/WLS versions.  We are working with Oracle Support to send out Alert Notes to those customers that are on those releases ahead of time (2mo notice), so that they can plan WLS ADF upgrades as part of getting ADF UI bug fixes (that force the issue). While a large number of customers run IE, this also means that customers that use ADF that are not running IE will be impacted. It also means that 12.1.3.8 customers that use our early ADF screens and need IE 11 compatibility will have to move to 12.1.3.9 patch 3 when it becomes available. 12.2.4 customers would automatically be forced to uptake the newer versions, there will not be a separate cumulative patch (ie. 12.2.4.2) for this. 
We will confirm availability to this forum when the code is available.

7.3.0.1 or 7.3.1.4 Demantra with EBS 11i, ASCP VCP 11i?

Many customers are unwilling to upgrade their EBS due to customizations, users and overall effort required, but upgrading their VCP apps is easier and is supported.  You can leave your 11i system as is and install a separate VCP 12.1 instance which collects data from 11i10.

This is a fully supported configuration and allows you to connect Demantra 7.3.1.4 to EBS 11i10.

You do not even need to use any VCP apps other than Demantra.  The data flows through the 12.1 VCP instance into Demantra 7.3.1.4. 
This is the certified configuration for 11i and Demantra 7.3.1.4, so we advise considering this mix of tools.

The additional benefit you achieve is the ability to bring your VCP applications forward without impacting your EBS applications.

For 7.3.1.4 you would work with the following configuration.
    EBS 11.5.10  (11i)
    VCP 12.1.3.8
    Demantra 7.3.1.4
