After the introduction of the Recommended Patch Collections (RPCs) in late 2012, Fixed Assets development has released an RPC about every six months. You may recall that an RPC is a collection of recommended patches consolidated into a single, downloadable patch, ready to be applied. The RPCs are created with the following goals in mind:
- Stability: Address issues that occur often and interfere with the normal completion of crucial business processes, such as period close--as observed by Oracle Development and Global Customer Support.
- Root Cause Fixes: Deliver a root cause fix for data corruption issues that delay period close, normal transaction flow actions, performance, and other issues.
- Compact: While bundling a large number of important corrections, the file footprint is kept as small as possible to facilitate uptake and minimize testing.
- Reliable: Reliable code with multiple customer downloads and comprehensive testing by QA, Support and Proactive Support.
There has been a revision to the RPC release process for spring 2014. Instead of releasing product-specific RPCs, development has released a 12.1.3 RPC that is EBS-wide. This EBS RPC includes all product-recommended patches along with their dependencies.
To find out more about this EBS-wide RPC, please review Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3+ Recommended Patch Collection 1 (RPC1) (Doc ID 1638535.1).
