The E-Business Suite Technology Codelevel Checker (ETCC) utility identifies patches that need to be applied to your Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 technology stack for the application and database tiers.

What’s New

Documentation Changes

We previously announced that beginning with the ETCC update for the January 2023 proactive patch updates there will be two MOS notes for the consolidated list of patches and bug fixes:  one for the Oracle Fusion Middleware and one for the Oracle Database.

The following are links to the EBS FMW consolidated list of patches and bug fixes and the updated EBS Database consolidated list of patches and bug fixes:

Note:  How ETCC works remains the same with this update to the documentation.  

Latest Updates

ETCC has been updated to include bug fixes and patching combinations for the following recommended versions and platforms:

Fusion Middleware (All Platforms)

  • Oracle WebLogic Patch Set Update
  • Oracle Fusion Middleware
    • Oracle HTTP Server CPU Jul2023
  • Oracle Forms and Reports

Database (Linux Only)

  • Oracle Database Release Update RU
  • Oracle JavaVM Component Database RU
  • Oracle Database Proactive BP
  • Oracle Database PSU
  • Oracle JavaVM Component Database PSU

What’s Pending

Certification is pending for the Oracle Database October 2023 patches for all other non-Linux platforms and will be announced separately.

Obtaining ETCC

We recommend using the latest version of ETCC, as new bugfixes will not be checked by prior versions of the utility. The latest version of the ETCC tool can always be downloaded via Patch 17537119 from My Oracle Support.
