What Does EBS 12.2.4 Include?

This Release Update Pack (RUP) for the EBS 12.2 release codeline includes new features as well as statutory and regulatory updates, and error corrections for stability, performance, and security. 

This is a consolidated suite-wide patch set. Release 12.2.4 is cumulative and includes new updates as well as updates made available in one-off patches for prior 12.2 releases.

For a complete list of new features, see:

Upgrading to EBS 12.2.4

Is there a direct upgrade path from EBS 11i to 12.2.4?

No.  EBS 11i customers must first upgrade to EBS 12.2 before applying 12.2.4.

Is there a direct upgrade path from EBS 12.0 to 12.2.4?

No.  EBS 12.0 customers must first upgrade to EBS 12.2 before applying 12.2.4.

Is there a direct upgrade path from EBS 12.2 to 12.2.4?

Yes.  EBS 12.2 customers can apply 12.2.4 directly to their environments.  EBS 12.2.4 is an Online Patch -- it may be applied while EBS 12.2 is running.

How can I prepare for EBS 12.2?

    We are finding the 12.2.4 patches to upgrade from 12.1.3. However, only the 12.2.x patches appear to be available for the Linux x86 platform. The download for 12.2 which is required prior to these other patches is only available in Linux x86-64 bit versions.

    We are currently on 12.1.3 on a Linux x86 platform. Will we not be able to move forward to 12.2 due to this configuration?

    Thank you in advance.

    any target dates for 12.1.0.1 Database support specifically for this EBUSINESS 12.2 upgrade (based on doc 1594274.1)? At the moment, we are at the cross roads, and upgrading to database 12.1.0.1 for our EBUSINESS 12.1.3 is more attainable schedule wise. Am cautious though about the possible implications on the eventual upgrade to EBUSINESS 12.2, currently the document (1594274.1) only talks about support for 11.2.0.3 and 11.2.0.4.

    Hello, Dennisuy,

    The certification of Database 12.1.0.1 with EBS 12.2 is in its final stages; we'll be announcing this soon.

    You can safely upgrade your EBS 12.1.3 environment to the Database 12.1.0.1 level, knowing that there will be an upgrade path to EBS 12.2.

    Regards,

    Steven

    Regarding 12.2.4 VM Virtual Appliance availability, unfortunately I am unable to provide specifics on future release dates, but I can tell you that it is coming but not "imminent". I'd encourage you to monitor the blog for updates.

    Is there a Rapid Install option for 12.2.4 ? Or is it patch upgrade only ?


  • Steven Chan Tuesday, August 12, 2014

    Murali,

    Please see the "Upgrading to 12.2.4" section of the article above.

    Regards,

    hi Judy -

    Release 12.2 is only supported on 64-bit platforms such as Linux x86-64. Most modern commodity hardware will support 64-bit Linux, and customers will be required to install or upgrade to 64-bit as part of a 12.2 implementation.

    E-Business Suite 12.2 on the application tier consists of a hybrid of 32 and 64-bit components that will run on 64-bit platforms.

    The E-Business Suite patches (such as the 12.2.4 RUP) continue to be generated on Linux x86 which can be applied to a Linux x86-64 system.

    Regards,

    John
