IMPORTANT: My Oracle Support Community and OTN Profiles Merge January 31, 2014

For My Oracle Support Community Users...

On January 31, 2014, we plan to migrate the My Oracle Support Community (MOSC) to the same platform used for the Oracle Technology Network (OTN) forums. This platform will bring new community features to help make it easier to find information through a more intuitive interface, and enhance the way you connect with Oracle experts and industry peers. If you are a user who has the same email address that accesses both My Oracle Support Community and OTN forums, as part of the migration to a single platform these profiles will be merged and the following will occur:

  • Activities and points from both accounts will be combined into a single consolidated account
  • Your OTN handle will be preserved and you will continue to use your email address to access My Oracle Support Community and OTN forums
  • Your existing username will become visible to both My Oracle Support Community and OTN forum members, however, we will set all of your other profile information to be private
  • Some of your existing profile information will not be migrated and will need to be re-entered into your new account profile

We encourage you to review your username and profile information once the migration is complete and make the necessary updates based on your privacy preferences.

SEPARATE MY ORACLE SUPPORT COMMUNITY AND OTN ACCOUNTS
If you prefer to maintain two separate accounts (one for OTN forums and the other for My Oracle Support Community), you will need to select a different email address to access OTN forums and update your OTN profile. You must take the following action before January 31, 2014:

  • Log into forums.oracle.com
  • Click on the arrow beside your username at the top right corner of the page
  • Click "Edit Profile and Privacy"
  • Click "Edit Manage your Oracle.com Profile account" located beside your email address
  • Select the Change Username link at the top of the page
  • Enter your current password and the new email address
  • Log out and log back in to confirm that you are able to log in with the new email address

We look for forward to enhancing your Oracle community experience and appreciate your patience as we implement these changes. For more details about My Oracle Support Community features and enhancements, please read the My Oracle Support Community Spotlight.

This is a small introduction for current Community members. Watch for the full story and training options in the new My Oracle Support Community’s Getting Started region and register now for a live webcast session: Get Proactive Essentials: Using the new My Oracle Support Community Platform.

Supportability on Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) with Oracle ADF

Information from Note: Supportability on Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) with Oracle ADF (Doc ID 1599898.1)

Currently, Oracle ADF is NOT CERTIFIED with Microsoft Internet Explorer 11. There are plans to certify it for Oracle ADF 11.1.1.7.0, 11.1.2.4.0 and 12.1.2.0.0 versions, in the first half of 2014, subject to change.

As new browser versions are released by Microsoft, Oracle needs time to validate its software against these new browser versions. We have to ensure Oracle's software has the quality expected by our customers. We apologize for any inevitable delays and plan to still meet our customers' expectations regarding the quality of Oracle ADF software.

Below is the error the end users will see in IE11 (within a popup):

You are using an unsupported browser. The supported browsers are Internet Explorer 7 and higher, Firefox 2.0.0.2 and higher, Safari 3.1.2 and higher, and Google Chrome 1.0 or higher.

Example of the popup screen: Unsupported image


The most significant change between MS IE 10 and IE 11 is that the browser's User-Agent header has changed, and ADF no longer even recognizes the browser's product family. Also, internal testing has shown that there are many other changes in IE 11 that have an impact on ADF, and these all need to be evaluated before ADF can be certified for use with IE 11. Customers should bear in mind that the certification process takes some time.

***********************************************************************

There is a change in the patches from Development, some of the current IE11 patches will be superseded by new versions containing an additional IE9 regression fix, in particular 18176711

11.1.1.7.0 customers should now use patch 18277370, instead of previous patch 18071063 (which will be withdrawn at some point).

11.1.2.4.0 patch 18277436 is now available and supersedes previously
withdrawn patch 18070879
