Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 has several technology stack components.  Each component has its own ORACLE_HOME:

  • Oracle Fusion Middleware
    • Oracle WebLogic Server (WLS) 10.3.6
    • OHS (WebTier) 11.1.1 and Oracle Common (Common Modules)
  • Application Server (OracleAS)
    • Forms and Reports 10.1.2
  • Oracle Database
    • Oracle Database Server 11.2 or 12.0

Each of these technology stack components can be patched individually.  But what do you use to patch them?  For a quick cheatsheet, see:

    Weblogic patching tool - Smart Update is very long, slow and painful tool. Is there another/alternative way to patch weblogic server?

    Hello, Bo,

    No, that's the only authorized tool to patch WebLogic. If you're having performance issues with it, please log a Service Request so that we can investigate.
