New OA Framework 12.2.5 Update 5 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:

Where is the documentation for this update?

Instructions for installing this OAF Release Update Pack are here:

Who should apply this patch?

All EBS 12.2.5 users should apply this patch.  Future OAF patches for EBS 12.2.5 will require this patch as a prerequisite. 

What's new in this update?

This bundle patch is cumulative: it includes all fixes released in previous EBS 12.2.5 bundle patches.

This latest bundle patch includes new fixes for the following critical issues:

  • The getIndexedChild API throws an exception when all the subtabs are hidden in the subtab layout.
  • Adding new rows to the scroll mode table with more than 30 records leads to UI distortion and table becomes empty.    
  • The value in Table cells with style OraTableCellNumber and OraTableTotalNumber is left aligned.
  • The inline error message at the table cell is not wrapped in 12.2 code lines and consequently, the table columns are expanded to the length of error messages if the error messages are long.
  • Mechanism to render table header tag from Row wise rendering(Row Bean) is not available in OAF
This Bundle Patch requires the R12.ATG_PF.C.Delta.5 Release Update Pack as a mandatory prerequisite.

    Hi Steven,

    Apologies if this is the wrong article to post this question against, but couldn't find an appropriate 12.2 post still accepting comments.

    During our 12.1.3 upgrade we utilised the maintenance wizard to help identify all required steps and recommended patches. This utility is also advised in the 12.2 upgrade manual (page 1-12). However, it does not appear to have been released for 12.2 upgrades.

    What is the plan to release the 12.2 version of the maintenance wizard?

    Hello, Scott,

    Nice to hear from you; I hope you've been well.

    Unfortunately, internal changes in product ownership mean that the Maintenance Wizard is at the end of its life. I do not expect any updates to that product at this point. We are in the process of updating our documentation to remove outdated references to Maintenance Wizard.

    The new E-Business Suite Technology Codelevel Checker (ETCC) tool is the new tool for identifying all missing database and middle tier patches that you need for your EBS 12.2 environment. See Note 1594274.1 for more details about ETCC.

    Best of luck with your upgrade to EBS 12.2.

    Regards,

    Steven
