[Feb. 7, 2017 update: removed "Support for Logical Host Names"-- that feature was postponed to a later AD/TXK bundle patch]

We have been fine-tuning the administration tools for E-Business Suite 12.2 via a series of regular updates to the Applications DBA (AD) and EBS Technology Stack (TXK) components:

We have now made available a tenth set of critical updates to AD and TXK.These updates are included in EBS 12.2.6.  You have a choice:  you can apply the EBS 12.2.6 Release Update Pack or you can apply the AD and TXK updates separately.

We strongly recommend that you apply either EBS 12.2.6 or these new AD and TXK updates at your earliest convenience:

They can be downloaded from My Oracle Support, as shown by this example for AD:

    Please note there is a typo in patch number for AD.C.8

    R12.AD.C.Delta 8 (Patch 2181299)

    Should be:

    R12.AD.C.Delta 8 (Patch 21841299)
