    Wow these certifications have come thick and fast this weekend! Now where's the RHEL 7... I know, I know, no comment etc... :o)


  • Ben Prusinski Thursday, October 2, 2014

    Steven,

    Has the new 12c in memory database option been tested and validated with Oracle R12 EBS?

    Thanks,

    Ben


  • guest Friday, October 3, 2014

    How about the certifications that still appear under pending certifications with 12.1.0.1 (https://blogs.oracle.com/stevenChan/entry/12_1_0_1_db), i.e. Active Data Guard and Data Guard Redo Apply with Physical Standby Databases ?

    Are these certified or are still pending certification?

    Cheers,

    Rakesh


  • Steven Chan Monday, October 6, 2014

    Ben,

    See the article above -- it explicitly references In Memory as certified.

    Regards,

    Steven


  • sharas Tuesday, October 7, 2014

    Steven -

    I have seen a Oracle applications (EBS) specific marketing video about a process turned into real-time as opposed to a batch process earlier because of In-memory advantage. Are there patches available now ?

    BTW, what's the scope for customers to disable seeded indexes on standard oracle tables in favor of in-memory? Are there any guidelines available from oracle ?

    Thanks,

    Sharas


  • Tim Friday, October 10, 2014

    Hi Steven

    Metalink does not currently show certification for EBS 12.1.3 with Data Guard for 12.1.0.2, but your article does not list it as pending.

    Could you please confirm current status (it seems to take forever to get physical standby certified). We have not upgraded to 12.1.0.1 yet because the certification was not available in the time frame we needed.

    Tim


  • Tim Monday, October 13, 2014

    Hi Steven

    What about DataGuard Physical Standby in 12.1.0.2?

    That certification took ages for 12.1.0.1.

    Metalink 1900663.1 suggests 12c or later, but the certification page for E-Business Suite 12.1.3 with DataGuard only shows up to 12.1.0.1.

    What's the story?

  • Amith Wednesday, October 15, 2014

    Steve,

    What is the plan for certifying database 12c for EBS 12.2.

    We are running EBS 12.1.3 on database 12c and the application team is keen to move to 12.2.

    Regards,

    Amith


  • Steven Chan Monday, October 20, 2014

    Amith,

    Database 12c 12.1.0.1 is certified with EBS 12.2. See:

    Database 12.1.0.1 Certified with EBS 12.2

    https://blogs.oracle.com/stevenChan/entry/12_1_0_1_ebs

    The 12.1.0.2 certification with EBS 12.2 is coming soon. Watch this blog for updates.

    Regards,

    Steven


  • Tim Thursday, November 13, 2014

    Steven

    The information above is incomplete/incorrect as you do not have Data Guard listed as not current certified. Not having had any response from you here in the past month, I raised SR 3-9864901831 to confirm the position.

    Please could you update the above page to show the current status of this certification. Additionally I would suggest a documentation bug for metalink note 1900663.1 would be appropriate.

    Hello, Sharas,

    We're putting the final touches on our guidance for EBS customers who wish to use In Memory Database. We'll be publishing this soon.

  • Steven Chan Tuesday, December 16, 2014

    Hello, Rakesh, Tim,

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this. It has taken us more time than we'd expected to get to the bottom of this.

    We did a comprehensive review of our Data Guard and Active Data Guard-related documentation for all of our EBS releases (11i to 12.2). There are sixteen combinations (excluding platform variations). Some of these combinations are covered by existing documentation, but that coverage isn't clearly indicated in our published documents. Some combinations are undocumented. Even worse, the official Certify database does not clearly indicate which of these combinations are covered, either.

    We're in the process of: a) updating our published documentation, b) planning new documentation, and c) updating Certify. I'll publish a new blog article specifically devoted to Data Guard and Active Data Guard as soon as we've straightened this out.

    Regards,

    Steven

    HI there

    When can we expect EBS 12.1.3 on Windows to be certified with Database 12c ?

  • John Abraham Tuesday, December 30, 2014

    This certification was announced back in July - see

    Any update / indication when 12.1.0.2 on AIX with 12.1.3 will be certified?

    We're on 11.2.0.3 at the moment, and need to be making a move mid-2015 (as security patches for 11.2.0.3 conclude in July 2015). I'd prefer to make the jump straight to 12.1.0.2 rather than 12.1.0.1 and have to do 12.1.0.2 at a later point.

    Des


  • John Abraham Wednesday, January 14, 2015

    hi Des -

    As you're probably aware, Oracle Revenue Recognition policies prevent us from disclosing predicted future dates of certifications such as these.

    We are in the process of certifying 12.1.3 with 12.1.0.2 on a number of platforms, including AIX.

    Feel free to ping me periodically on this if you'd like as well.

    Regards,

    John


  • Rob Monday, February 2, 2015

    Hi,

    I'm try to find out the certification position of running 12.1.3 on AIX 5.3 using a 12.1.0.2 database.

    I've been backwards and forwards through the blog, but it's not clear. The page announcing the certification says that AIX Power Systems is a pending certification, but when I do a similar search for database 11.2.0.4 on AIX I get the same result - I'm sure that 11.2.0.4 must be certified for AIX Power Systems?

    Is there an easy way to see which platforms are supported for a particular database/ebs combination.

    Thanks,

    Rob


  • guest Monday, February 2, 2015

    Hi Rob -

    The certification of 12.1.0.2 with EBS 12.1.3 on AIX continues to be in progress - incidentally, 12.1.0.2 on AIX is only certified for AIX 6 and 7, not 5.3.

    To view the platforms certifications of EBS with the Database, go to MOS's Certifications page (on http://support.oracle.com) and search for E-Business Suite version 12.1.3 in the Certifications Search tab. Then click on the 'Databases' category, and then the 12.1.0.2 version of the Oracle Database subcategory.

    Regards,

    John

    will 12.1.0.2 be certified with 11i?

    What is the JDeveloper version compatibility with Oracle database 12.1.0.2

    Please provide doc id if any.

    The database release is not relevant. Specific JDeveloper releases are required for specific E-Business Suite releases. See:

    Hi Steve

    May i know if 12c database with database vault enabled is certified with 12 .1 ebiz suite.?


  • Elke Phelps (Oracle Development) Friday, July 10, 2015

    Guest,

    Thanks for the inquiry. Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 is not currently certified with Oracle Database 12c database vault.

    We are currently planning to certify Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.3 and 12.2 with Oracle Database 12c Database Vault.

    Note:

    -For simple certification questions such as this, you can search the Certification tab on My Oracle Support for certified combinations of products and database options with Oracle E-Business Suite.

    - Oracle's revenue recognition policies prohibit us from disclosing time lines and dates for future certifications and releases.

    Hi Stevan,

    We are on EBS 12.1.1 (IBM AIX) with 11.2.0.4 db version and planing for DB upgrade to 12.1.0.2 but it is not ceritified yet.

    Is there any plan to certify 12c(12.1.0.2) on EBS 12.1.1 for IBM AIX?

    Thanks,

    Santosh


  • John Abraham Thursday, October 8, 2015

    Hello Santosh -

    The requirement for an upgrade to 12.1.0.2 is for the EBS version to be at 12.1.3 (12.1 RUP 3).

    This is a generic requirement irrespective of platforms - 12.1.3 with 12.1.0.2 on AIX is certified.

    This requirement is documented in the 'Interoperability Notes Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.0 or 12.1 with Oracle Database 12c Release 1 (12.1.0)' (Note 1524398.1).

    thanks,

    John

    Any idea if and when new Oracle Database 12.2 will be certified with EBS R12.1 / EBS R12.2?

    -Rohit
  • Steven Chan Wednesday, September 20, 2017
    Hi, Rohit,

    Yes, we are working on certifying EBS 12.1 and 12.2 with Database 12.2. These certifications are underway now.

    Oracle's Revenue Recognition rules prohibit us from discussing certification and release dates, but you're welcome to monitor or subscribe to this blog. I'll post updates here as soon as soon as they're available.

    Regards,
    Steven

    Certification of Oracle Database 12.2 with EBS R12.1 / EBS R12.2 seems to be taking quite a lot of time. Any updates there, any issues ?

    -Rohit
  • Steven Chan Tuesday, January 16, 2018
    Rohit,

    Our work on certifying Database 12.2 has surfaced a number of issues that require patches from the database group, particularly around pluggable databases and compatibility with the Edition-Based Redefinition functionality that is the core of our Online Patching feature in EBS 12.2.

    In parallel, the next Database version, 18c, is coming soon and promises some exciting capabilities, so we are also evaluating where that should fit into our certification plans.

    Oracle's Revenue Recognition rules prohibit us from discussing certification and release dates, but you're welcome to monitor or subscribe to this blog. I'll post updates here as soon as soon as they're available.

  • Elke Phelps (Oracle Development) Thursday, January 17, 2019
    Rohit, The certification of the next database release with EBS 12.1 and 12.2 is our top priority. This certification is more complex than some prior certifications. At this point, we anticipate that the next version we certify will be Database 19c. You may monitor this blog for the latest in certification announcements.

    We have to plan the next database upgrade (12 R1, 18c or 19c) with E-Bus this month for this year (Fixed price customer proposal). Can you please at least give us an non committal roadmap for the next 12 months? Will 18c or 19c be certified with E-Bus R12.2 this year? If so is this unlikely/likely by July 2019?
    Without any clearer insight we may delay the E-Bus upgrade to 12.2 until next year.

    Note: Oracle's revenue recognition policy prohibits from sharing timelines and dates for future certifications and releases.

    Given that your bid is required this month, your plan should include the latest database certified with EBS - currently Database 12.1.0.2.

    You may monitor this blog for the latest in certification announcements.
