New OA Framework 12.2.5 Update 4 Now Available

Steven Chan
Senior Director

Web-based content in Oracle E-Business Suite 12 runs on the Oracle Application Framework (OAF or "OA Framework") user interface libraries and infrastructure.   Since the release of Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 in 2013, we have released several cumulative updates to Oracle Application Framework to fix performance, security, and stability issues. 

These updates are provided in cumulative Release Update Packs, and cumulative Bundle Patches that can be applied on top of the Release Update Pack. "Cumulative" means that the latest RUP or Bundle Patch contains everything released earlier.

The latest OAF update for EBS 12.2.5 is now available:

EBS 12.2.5 Bundle Patch 4

Where is the documentation for this update?

Instructions for installing this OAF Release Update Pack are here:

Who should apply this patch?

All EBS 12.2 users should apply this patch.  Future OAF patches for EBS 12.2 will require this patch as a prerequisite. 

What's new in this update?

Fixes are included for following critical issues:

  • Users intermittently getting FND_SESSION_MGR_INST_ERROR. On session timeout, clicking on any responsibility on the homepage throws error "Error while invoking main menu: Application: FND, Message Name:FND_SESSION_MGR_INST_ERROR.
  • Spacing and alignment issues for read only message Choice and text areas.
  • JAWS is not reading the confirmation message which appears after adding an attachment inline, successfully.
  • When the query string of a view object is modified in the controller to remove unused where clause parameter conditions, using 'export' results in an exception.
  • Reverted fix which enabled caching of errors for beans on which server validation was disabled.

This Bundle Patch requires the R12.ATG_PF.C.Delta.5 Release Update Pack as a mandatory prerequisite.

    Hi Steven,

    We are on 12.2.4 and Not Upgrading to 12.2.5 any recently. Is this patch applicable for 12.2.4 or is there an alternate patch?

    Hi, Roy,

    This bundle patch is designed for EBS 12.2.5 users only.

    If you're on EBS 12.2.4, you should apply the R12.ATG+PF.C.Delta.4 Release Update Pack and its associated Post-Install Critical Fixes described in Note 1927975.1 Part 2.

    Please be aware while applying patch 23179558 in 12.2.4 environment. It will screw all OAF pages.

  • Steven Chan Tuesday, July 19, 2016


    Thank you for emphasizing that warning. As stated in this patch's name, README, installation documentation, and the article above, this patch is intended for EBS 12.2.5 only.

    We did some checking after your original comment. As long as you've applied all of the prerequisite patches, the actual impact of patch 23179558 on EBS 12.2.4 should actually have no disruptive effects on OAF pages.

    Can you provide a Service Request number with details about the issues that you encountered? We'd like to investigate this further.
