Apps 12.0.1 Release Update Pack Now Available

Steven Chan
Senior Director

The first major update for Apps Release 12 is now available for download from Metalink:

A RUP by Any Other Name...

A short word about terminology is needed before I go much further.  In Release 11i, we have these things called Rollup Patches, which inexplicably became known as "RUPs."  Release 11i Rollup Patches contain patches for a single product family (e.g. ATG Family Pack H Rollup 4).

In Release 12, we're now shipping these things called Release Update Packs.  Given the way that neologisms form, it's inevitable that these will be called "RUPs" too.  The difference is that the R12 Release Update Packs combine patches created across several E-Business Suite product families. 

If you're paying attention, it should be dawning on you about now that "Release Update Packs" in Release 12 are the equivalent of "Consolidated Updates" in Release 11i.  These are big, important patches.

What's New in Release Update Pack 1?

Regardless of what it's called, the first Release Update Pack for Release 12 contains fixes for the following areas, with details in the listed Metalink Notes:
Drilling down into the areas updated for Applications Technology, you'll find updates for the following techstack components:
  • Oracle Alert - R12.ALR.A.Delta.1

    My question is are these Rollups for 12 only bug fixes or do they include functionality as well?

    In R11i when it first came out we had this problem with major functionality change enforced becuase we had bugs in code.

    Is R12 any better?

    Iain,Good question.  Release 12.0.1 includes only bug fixes to existing functionality.The next major release may be dubbed "Release 12.1."  This is expected include new functionality.  We're working on that release right now (I don't have a firm schedule for this yet).Regards,Steven  The above is intended to outline our general product direction.  It is intended for information purposes only, and may not be incorporated into any contract.   It is not a commitment to deliver any material, code, or functionality, and should not be relied upon in making purchasing decision.  The development, release, and timing of any features or functionality described for Oracle's products remains at the sole discretion of Oracle.
