    Mark - my apologies regarding the delay in responding to your post. Unfortunately, I missed the automated update for your comment.

    The certification of Oracle Database 19c with EBS 12.2 and 12.1 is our top priority. The Database 19c certification is more complex than some prior certifications due to changes in support of certain database features, but we are working closely with the database group to resolve open issues.

    We do not plan to certify EBS with Database 12.2 or Database 18c.Database 19c is the "Long Term Support" release of the Database 12.2 line, in the same way that was the Long Term Support patchset on the 11.2 lines. Database versions 12.2 and 18 will have relatively shorter support lives compared to 19c.
