Regular readers of this blog know that we have three reference tools that are essential for every E-Business Suite upgrade:

  1. File Comparison Report (Note 1446430.1)
  2. Data Model Comparison Report (Note 1290886.1)
  3. Seed Data Comparison Report (Note 1327399.1)

These tools allow you to generate a report of the differences between one EBS release and another for specific EBS products.

For example, you could use the Data Model Comparison to get a list of EBS 11.5.10.2 database objects that were updated in EBS 12.1.3 for Bill of Materials (BOM):

What's New?

These tools now cover EBS 12.2.8 and all earlier EBS 12.2.x releases.

For example, you can now compare EBS 12.2.8 to:

  • 11.5.10 Minimum Baseline
  • 12.1.3
  • 12.2.3
  • 12.2.4
  • 12.2.5
  • 12.2.6
