We continue to release updates to EBS 12.2 technology stack (TXK) and Applications Database (AD) components based on customer feedback. We released the first set of updates in March 2014, the second set in May 2014, the third set in July 2014, and have now made available a fourth set of critical updates.
If you are on Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2, we strongly recommend that you apply these two newly-released patch collections (bundle fixes) at your earliest convenience:
Applying these on top of AD Delta 5 and TXK Delta 5 respectively will bring you to the recommended codelevel for AD and TXK:
Important: You must always keep your AD and TXK codelevels synchronized.
Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 patches are grouped into codelines. A codeline begins with a point release (for example, Release 12.0) and progresses to include all the patches created to maintain that point release. Patches associated with codelines implement a set of features for a point release, and also provide fixes for that set of features. Such a unique set of product features for a point release is referred to as a a codelevel. You can think of it as the code you get when you apply a set of patches: in other words, it is defined by the patches that deliver it. Codelevels are cumulative, with each containing the initial set of features plus all the fixes created for that product.
There are several important reasons you should adopt this latest recommended AD/TXK codelevel:
