Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.9 Now Available

Elke Phelps
Product Management Director

We are pleased to announce that Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.9 is now available.

Many new features and enhancements were requested and voted on by customers using the social media capabilities of the Oracle E-Business Suite Communities on My Oracle Support. Other new features and enhancements reflect continued development of themes introduced in earlier 12.2 releases, including support for modern business models, user interface modernization, and increased operational efficiency.

For details regarding the EBS 2019 innovations, see:

The EBS 12.2.9 release update pack (RUP) is delivered on My Oracle Support as Patch 28840850.  Instructions for downloading and applying this latest RUP on top of the EBS 12.2 codeline can be found here:

What Does Release 12.2.9 Include?

As a consolidated suite-wide patchset, this RUP includes new features, statutory and regulatory updates, and enhancements for stability, performance, and security.

Release 12.2.9 is cumulative. That means that as well as providing new updates for this release, it also includes updates that were originally made available as one-off patches for earlier 12.2 releases.

Common Questions and Answers About Upgrading

  • Q: Is there a direct upgrade path from EBS 12.2.x to 12.2.9?
  • A: Yes. Release 12.2.x customers can apply 12.2.9 directly to their environments. EBS 12.2.9 is an online patch, so it can be applied while an existing Release 12.2.x system is running.
  • Q: Is there a direct upgrade path from Release 12.1 to Release 12.2.9?
  • A: No. Release 12.1 customers must first upgrade to Release 12.2 before applying 12.2.9.
  • Q: Is there a direct upgrade path from Release 12.0 to Release 12.2.9?
  • A: No. Release 12.0 customers must first upgrade to Release 12.2 before applying 12.2.9.
  • Q: Is there a direct upgrade path from EBS 11i to 12.2.9?
  • A: No. Release 11i customers must first upgrade to Release 12.2 before applying 12.2.9.

    It's great to know the new releases for EBS. On the other hand, would you be able to provide updates on the certification status of EBS with Oracle Database 12.2 releases? We are planning for the upgrade of EBS and DB, and we would like to know if the upgrades can be performed in one-go. Thanks very much.

    Hello ,
    Is there a direct upgrade path from EBS 12.1.3 to 12.2.9 ?
  • Elke Phelps (Oracle Development) Monday, August 19, 2019
    Samuel, Thanks for the feedback and question.

    The certification of the next database release with EBS 12.2 and 12.1 is our top priority. This certification is more complex than some prior database certifications. We do not plan to certify Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 or 12.1 with Database 12.2 or Database 18. At this point, the next version we certify will be Database 19c.
    Note: Database 19 is the "Long Term Support" release of the Database 12.2 line, in the same way that 11.2.0.4 was the Long Term Support patchset on the 11.2 lines. Database versions 12.2 and 18 will have relatively shorter support lives compared to 19.

    Oracle’s revenue recognition policy prohibits us from disclosing timelines and dates for future certifications and releases. Please subscribe to or monitor this blog for the latest in certification announcements.

    Regards,
    Elke
