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.
