Web-based content in Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 is supported by the Oracle Application Framework (also known as OA Framework, OAF, or FWK) user interface libraries and associated infrastructure. We periodically release OAF updates to fix performance, security, and stability issues.

How Do OAF Updates Work?

OAF updates are packaged in three formats:

  • Cumulative Release Update Packs (RUPs)
  • Cumulative Bundle Patches (BPs, often just known as bundles)
  • Consolidated Patches

Note the following important points about these updates:

  • Cumulative means that the latest RUP or BP includes all the updates provided in prior RUPs or BPs for a given EBS release.
  • RUPs and BPs (bundles) can only be applied to the specified EBS release (or releases) and no other.
    • For example:
      • A bundle for Release 12.2.12 cannot be applied to Release 12.2.11 (or any other).
      • A bundle for Release 12.2.7 can also be applied to Release 12.2.8, as these two releases share a codeline.
  • BPs can be applied on top of the corresponding RUPs.
  • BPs are the most frequent type of update released.
  • Consolidated patches may be made available shortly after a major release, as a predecessor to the the first numbered bundle patch.

Which OAF Patch Should I Apply?

We highly recommend adopting a policy of applying the latest consolidated patch or bundle patch, to take advantage of fixes both in it and its predecessors.

The following table lists latest patches that are currently available for the Oracle E-Business Suite Releases.
