Latest Updates to AD and TXK Tools for EBS 12.2

Robert Farrington
Applications Technology Integration

We continue to release updates to EBS 12.2 technology stack (TXK) and Applications Database (AD) patching tools based upon customer feedback.  We released the first set of updates in March 2014, the second set in May 2014, and have just released a third set of critical updates.

This latest update includes important enhancements and fixes to the Online Patching functionality.  All Release 12.2 users are strongly encouraged to apply these new updates as soon as possible.  These patches are cumulative: they include all AD and TXK-related fixes released in previous updates.

The updates and few features to Online Patching include:

  • New 'standard' cleanup mode - An optimized default cleanup mode, available in addition to the 'quick' and 'full' cleanup modes.
  • Log Analyzer Utility - Analyzes adop log directories for errors and warnings, and displays messages to help you identify any problems in an adop run.
  • New 'cm_wait' parameter - Allows you to specify how long to wait for concurrent processes to finish, before shutting down the Internal Concurrent Manager.

Future AD and TXK updates will be delivered on top of these AD and TXK patches.

    Hi Steven,

    A nice update from you once again!

    Are we going to see E-Business Suite 12.2.4/5 in near future?

Currently planning to integrate OAM (11.1.2) and release that its certified only with TXK.4 & AD.4, is their new certification in process with TXK.5 & AD.5. Because we would like to go with latest TXK & AD patches.
