Steven Chan
Senior Director

The Critical Patch Update (CPU) for July 2009 was released on July 14th, 2009. Oracle strongly recommends applying the patches as soon as possible.

The Critical Patch Update Advisory is the starting point for relevant information. It includes a list of products affected, pointers to obtain the patches, a summary of the security vulnerabilities, and links to other important documents.

Supported Products that are not listed in the "Supported Products and Components Affected" Section of the advisory do not require new patches to be applied.

Also, it is essential to review the Critical Patch Update supporting documentation referenced in the Advisory before applying patches, as this is where you can find important pertinent information.

The Critical Patch Update Advisory is available at the following location:

The next four Critical Patch Update release dates are:

  • October 13, 2009
  • January 12, 2010
  • April 13, 2010
  • July 13, 2010

    Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 11i and 12 Critical Patch Update Knowledge Document (July 2009) Doc ID: 836258.1 has an entry stating

    Footnote 2 Apply patch 8434935 before applying the July 09 CPU

    patch,but Note 835649.1(Critical Patch Update July 2009 Patch Availability

    Document for Oracle Products) for oracle database does not have any entry for

    this patch.

    so is this patch 8434935 only needed for Financials(Application customers)?

    If not the July CPU DB patch should include this as a pre-req.

    Looking at the patch readme for 8434935 I dont see this as apps specific though?

    Hi, Sam,

    Unfortunately, this blog isn't really set up to advise on specific patch dependencies. Your best bet would be to log a formal Service Request via Oracle Support to get one of our ATG specialists engaged.

    Good luck with this one.
