April 2018 Update to E-Business Suite Technology Codelevel Checker (ETCC)

Steven Chan
Senior Director

The E-Business Suite Technology Codelevel Checker (ETCC) tool helps you identify application or database tier overlay patches that need to be applied to your Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2 system. ETCC maps missing overlay patches to the default corresponding Database Patch Set Update (PSU) patches, and displays them in a patch recommendation summary.

What’s New

ETCC has been updated to include bug fixes and patching combinations for the following recommended versions of the following updates:

  • Oracle Database Proactive BP
  • Oracle Database PSU
  • Oracle JavaVM Component Database PSU
  • Oracle Database Patch for Exadata BP
  • Oracle Database PSU
  • Oracle JavaVM Component Database PSU
  • Microsoft Windows Database BP
  • Oracle JavaVM Component on Windows
  • Microsoft Windows Database BP
  • Oracle JavaVM Component on Windows

Obtaining ETCC

We recommend always using the latest version of ETCC, as new bugfixes will not be checked by older versions of the utility. The latest version of the ETCC tool can be downloaded via Patch 17537119 from My Oracle Support.

    Hi Steve/Team:
    Our Envirnoment :
    DB : 12C(
    EBS: R12(12.2.4)
    As part of our tech stack upgrade.
    I have downloaded the latest ETCC and applied all the patches reported by ETCC.
    After the ETTC report came back with no patches needs to be applied.
    I have applied Apr 2018 PSU patch(27726471),
    Patch # 27726471 is a two part patch 1) OJVM- 27475603 & 2) PSU for 2018 Apr - 27338041
    After applying these patches, I ran ETCC,ETCC came up with the below report/patches/bugs.
    As per the report, It looks like these are old bug fixes which are super seeded with the latest PSU.
    As per my understanding, ETCC should be clean with no missing patches.Otherwise we will have issues while performing application level patches/adop/...

    Pls advise

    Hello, Mohan,

    It is true that you should have a clean ETCC run before proceeding further. If you're encountering odd results for your environment, I'd recommend logging a Service Request to get an EBS specialist engaged.

    Hi Steven,
    Looks like the Windows patch details are not correctly updated in the database patch mapping XML. As per your note, April 2018 Windows BP is certified but ETCC is still reporting FEB2017 patch both for BP and OJVM. How can this be fixed?
