The EBS File Comparison Report provides a comprehensive comparison of file system artifacts between different Oracle E-Business Suite releases for
important file types. As part of Oracle E-Business Suite upgrade planning, this report can assist customers to get a clear idea of "what is different in a
new release" (additions, removals and modifications for Oracle E-Business Suite delivered files).
The report also covers some special artifacts that span the file system and database (for example, Oracle E-Business Suite delivered Oracle Application Framework (OAF) personalizations, Oracle Application Framework (OAF) based pages, Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher reports and so on).The EBS File Comparison Report is intended to complement other already available reports such as EBS Data Model Comparison report and EBS ATG Seed Data Comparison report.
The EBS data model comparison report provides the static database object definition changes between two EBS releases to help users to preview the
database object definition changes before upgrading their instances from one release to another and understand the impact of the database object changes
that may affect the customization or business flows. Users can select a product and navigate the database object definition differences for each supported
database object type.
The EBS ATG Seed Data Comparison Report provides a static delta between different EBS releases by documenting the seed data changes delivered by
the product data loader files (.ldt extension) based on EBS ATG loader control (.lct extension) files.
