    Hi Steven,

    What would you recommend using for the EBS RDBMS 12.1.0.2?

    Combo OJVM PSU 12.1.0.2.161018 and Database PSU 12.1.0.2.161018 Patch:24433133 as mentioned by Doc ID 2181748.1 (Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 Critical Patch Update Knowledge Document (October 2016))

    or

    Combo of 12.1.0.2.161018 OJVM PSU and 12.1.0.2.161018 DBBP (Oct 2016) Patch:24436306

    Regards,

    Reinder

    I would also like the answer to the same question please?

    Combo OJVM PSU 12.1.0.2.161018 and Database PSU 12.1.0.2.161018 (Patch:24433133)

    or

    Combo of 12.1.0.2.161018 OJVM PSU and 12.1.0.2.161018 DBBP (Oct 2016) (Patch:24436306)

    I guess both get you to the same level, and it doesn't' matter which patch for the database component at least? The later being for the whole GI infrastructure and all other components too? Is my assumption correct?

    Reinder and Naresh -

    Database Proactive Bundle Patches (BPs) are a superset of database PSUs. We recommend that at a minimum you apply the DB PSU. You can optionally choose to use BPs instead of PSUs - the choice is yours.

    To determine which Database patching method is appropriate for your environment, please refer to Oracle Database - Overview of Database Patch Delivery Methods (Doc ID 1962125.1)

    Note: In general, there are no dependencies between the Oracle E-Business Suite CPU and the Technology Stack Components. If there are dependencies, these will be noted in the Oracle E-Business Suite CPU My Oracle Support Note.

    Thanks.

    Elke
