My SunSolve colleagues tell me that the ability to test sample scripted My Oracle Support (MOS) patch downloads is now available.
If you use scripted patch downloads, e.g. using 'wget', I highly recommend you take this opportunity to test the necessary changes to the download syntax in advance of the transition from SunSolve to MOS which is currently scheduled for December 10.
The document detailing the 'wget' syntax changes relating to the upcoming transition from SunSolve to MOS, http://sunsolve.sun.com/search/document.do?assetkey=1-79-1199543.1-1, has been updated with the relevant instructions. I suggest you bookmark that document and return to it regularly for updates.
