E-Business Suite Support Timelines Updated at OpenWorld 2013

[Oct. 30, 2013 Update: Corrected typo -- US Form 1099 updates are provided to 2014]

Our release of E-Business Suite 12.2 is accompanied by changes to support timelines for previous releases.  These changes were announced at OpenWorld 2013.  They override changes announced at OpenWorld 2012.

Latest changes to EBS Support timelines 2013

EBS 11.5.10.2 covered by an Exception to Sustaining Support to December 31, 2015

This provides updates during the Sustaining Support period for:

  • New fixes for Severity 1 production issues
  • Critical Patch Updates (CPU) for security-related issues
  • Legislative updates
    • US Form 1099 2013 and 2014 year-end updates
    • Payroll regulatory updates for US, Canada, UK, and Australia for each country's fiscal years ending in 2014

Longer EBS 12.1 Premier and Extended Support timelines

  • Premier Support runs to December 31, 2016
    (Originally was to end May 2014; 31 extra months added)
  • Extended Support runs to December 31, 2019
    (Originally was to end December 2018; one extra year added)

These changes are officially documented here:

What about E-Business Suite technology stack components?

These support date extensions only cover internal EBS application tier technology stack components such as Oracle Forms and Reports, Oracle HTTP Server, Oracle JServ, Oracle Containers for Java (OC4J), and Java (JDK and JRE).

They do not extend support dates for the Oracle Database or optional externally-integrated application tier components such as Discoverer, Oracle Single Sign-On, Oracle Access Manager, Oracle Internet Directory, or other Fusion Middleware products.

Oracle JInitiator Not Compatible

Oracle JInitiator was built on top of Java 1.3.  Java 1.3 is desupported and is not compatible with Windows 8, Windows Vista, or Windows 7.  We have no plans to certify Oracle JInitiator with Windows 8.

Premier Support for Oracle JInitiator 1.1.8 ended in December 2008, and Premier Support for Oracle JInitiator 1.3 ended for EBS customers in July 2009.

Use the Native JRE plug-in

Windows 8 desktop clients are certified only with the native Java Runtime Environment (JRE) with Windows 8. 

Our standard policy is that all E-Business Suite customers can apply all JRE updates to end-user desktops from JRE 1.6.0_03 and later updates on the 1.6 codeline, and from JRE 7u10 and later updates on the JRE 7 codeline. 

The minimum JRE prerequisites for Windows 8 are higher than in previous releases.  These are:

  • Java client plug-in JRE 1.6.0_37 or later 1.6 updates
  • Java client plug-in JRE 1.7.0_10 or later 1.7 updates

We test all new JRE 1.6 and JRE 7 releases in parallel with the JRE development process, so all new JRE 1.6 and 7 releases are considered certified with the E-Business Suite on the same day that they're released by our Java team. 

You do not need to wait for a certification announcement before applying new JRE 1.6 or JRE 7 releases to your EBS users' desktops. This applies to all certified Windows desktop operating systems, including XP, Vista, 7, and 8.

WebADI and Report Manager Users

Running WebADI and Report Manager through Excel on Windows 8 has additional patch requirements. For further information see Document 1077728.1.

What About Windows Hyper-V?

End-users are able to run Windows XP, Vista, and 7 as client guest operating systems via Windows Hyper-V on a Win8 desktop client.

We have no plans to conduct separate EBS certification efforts for Hyper-V guest client configurations running on Win8 clients.  Oracle Support will attempt to reproduce reported issues using non-virtualized WinXP, Vista, or 7 desktop clients.  Microsoft Support may to be engaged for any issues that can only be reproduced only in Hyper-V on Windows 8 desktops.

What about other Windows 8 editions?

We do not currently plan to certify the following editions with Oracle E-Business Suite:

  • Windows RT
  • Windows 8 tablet-oriented interface (formerly called Metro)
I would not expect the results of our certification to apply to Windows RT.

What About Earlier Versions of IE?

Microsoft only supports IE 10 on Windows 8 desktops.  Microsoft does not support earlier versions of IE on Win8, so Oracle is only able to support IE10 on Windows 8 clients for the E-Business Suite.

Pending Win8 Certifications

BiDi (Arabic and Hebrew Languages)

Due to issues with right side truncation, Windows 8 is not currently certified for BiDi (Arabic and Hebrew) languages. A patch fix for this issue is in progress.

MS Projects

Posting information between Oracle Projects and Microsoft Projects will currently error when running on Windows 8. A patch fix for this issue is in progress. For further information see Document 1077728.1 listed below.

Client Server Products

The majority of Client/Server products are either not currently certified or will not be certified on Windows 8. For further information see document 277535.1 listed below.

Oracle's Revenue Recognition rules prohibit us from discussing certification and release dates, but you're welcome to monitor or subscribe to this blog. I'll post updates here as soon as soon as they're available.

    Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 Now Available

    We are very pleased to announce that Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2 is generally available for download now:

    E-Business Suite 12.2 Download screenshot

    EBS 12.2 represents our most-groundbreaking release in years (Press Release).  It includes new product functionality, new Fusion Middleware and database components, and introduces new tools for installing, configuring, and maintaining E-Business Suite environments:

    Hundreds of new features

    Includes significant enhancements across the integrated suite of business applications spanning enterprise resource planning, human capital management, and supply chain management.  You can find the complete list here:

    Online Patching

    Apply EBS patches while users are still entering transactions and using the E-Business Suite.  Online Patching uses the Oracle Database's Edition-Based Redefinition feature and other new technologies to allow the E-Business Suite to be updated while the system is still running. You can learn more about Online Patching via our official documentation and this technical webcast.

    WebLogic Server

    Uses Oracle WebLogic Server, which replaces the Oracle Containers for Java (OC4J) application server used in EBS 12.0 and 12.1.  You can learn more about how this improves the system administration experience via our official documentation and this technical webcast.

    Streamlined installation
    • Option for installing EBS 12.2 on to existing database servers.
    • Capability of installation into existing Real Application Clusters environments.
    • Database deployment on Automatic Storage Management (ASM) and other file systems.
    Upgrading to EBS 12.2

    Is there a direct upgrade path from EBS 11i to 12.2?

    Yes, there is a direct upgrade path from EBS 11.5.10.2 to EBS 12.2.  EBS 11.5.10.2 customers do not have to install an intermediary EBS 12 release (such as 12.1.3) before upgrading to EBS 12.2.  EBS 11.5.10.2 customers must have applied the minimum baseline patch requirements for Extended Support as described in Patch Requirements for Extended Support of Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11.5.10 (Document 883202.1). Customers on earlier EBS 11i releases (such as 11.5.7) need to be at the 11.5.10.2 level plus the minimum baseline patch requirements for Extended Support before they can upgrade to EBS 12.2.

    Is there a direct upgrade path from EBS 12.0 to 12.2?

    Yes, there is a direct upgrade path from EBS 12.0.4 and 12.0.6 to EBS 12.2.  EBS 12.0.4 or 12.0.6 customers do not have to install an intermediary EBS 12 release (such as 12.1.3) before upgrading to EBS 12.2.  Customers on earlier EBS 12.0 releases (such as 12.0.3) will need to be at the 12.0.4 or 12.0.6 level before they can upgrade to EBS 12.2.

    Is there a direct upgrade path from EBS 12.1 to 12.2?

    Yes, there is a direct upgrade path from EBS 12.1.1, 12.1.2, and 12.1.3 to EBS 12.2.

    How can I prepare for EBS 12.2?

    Java JRE 1.6.0_60 Certified with Oracle E-Business Suite

    The latest Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0_60 (a.k.a. JRE 6u60-b07) and later updates on the JRE 6 codeline are now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i and 12 for Windows-based desktop clients.  

    All JRE 6 and 7 releases are certified with EBS upon release

    Our standard policy is that all E-Business Suite customers can apply all JRE updates to end-user desktops from JRE 1.6.0_03 and later updates on the 1.6 codeline, and from JRE 7u10 and later updates on the JRE 7 codeline.  We test all new JRE 1.6 and JRE 7 releases in parallel with the JRE development process, so all new JRE 1.6 and 7 releases are considered certified with the E-Business Suite on the same day that they're released by our Java team. 

    You do not need to wait for a certification announcement before applying new JRE 1.6 or JRE 7 releases to your EBS users' desktops.

    What's new in Java 1.6.0_60?

    Java 6 is now available only via My Oracle Support for E-Business Suite users.  You can find links to this release, including Release Notes, documentation, and the actual Java downloads here:

    32-bit and 64-bit versions certified

    This certification includes both the 32-bit and 64-bit JRE versions.

    32-bit JREs are certified on:

    • Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3)
    • Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Service Pack 2 (SP2)
    • Windows 7 and Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

    64-bit JREs are certified only on 64-bit versions of Windows 7 and Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1).

    Worried about the 'mismanaged session cookie' issue?

    No need to worry -- it's fixed.  To recap: JRE releases 1.6.0_18 through 1.6.0_22 had issues with mismanaging session cookies that affected some users in some circumstances.

    The fix for those issues was first included in JRE 1.6.0_23. These fixes will carry forward and continue to be fixed in all future JRE releases.  In other words, if you wish to avoid the mismanaged session cookie issue, you should apply any release after JRE 1.6.0_22.

    Implications of Java 6 End of Public Updates for EBS Users

    The Support Roadmap for Oracle Java is published here:

    The latest updates to that page (as of Sept. 19, 2012) state (emphasis added):

    Java SE 6 End of Public Updates Notice

    After February 2013, Oracle will no longer post updates of Java SE 6 to its public download sites. Existing Java SE 6 downloads already posted as of February 2013 will remain accessible in the Java Archive on Oracle Technology Network. Developers and end-users are encouraged to update to more recent Java SE versions that remain available for public download. For enterprise customers, who need continued access to critical bug fixes and security fixes as well as general maintenance for Java SE 6 or older versions, long term support is available through Oracle Java SE Support .

    What does this mean for Oracle E-Business Suite users?

    EBS users fall under the category of "enterprise users" above.  Java is an integral part of the Oracle E-Business Suite technology stack, so EBS users will continue to receive Java SE 6 updates from February 2013 to the end of Java SE 6 Extended Support in June 2017.

    In other words, nothing changes for EBS users after February 2013. 

    EBS users will continue to receive critical bug fixes and security fixes as well as general maintenance for Java SE 6. These Java SE 6 updates will be made available to EBS users for the Extended Support periods documented in the Oracle Lifetime Support policy document for Oracle Applications (PDF):

    1. EBS 11i Extended Support ends November 2013
    2. EBS 12.0 Extended Support ends January 2015
    3. EBS 12.1 Extended Support ends December 2018

    How can EBS customers obtain Java 6 updates after the public end-of-life?

    EBS customers can download Java 6 patches from My Oracle Support.  For a complete list of all Java SE patch numbers, see:

    Will EBS users be forced to upgrade to JRE 7 for Windows desktop clients?

    No. This upgrade is highly recommended but currently remains optional. JRE 6 will be available to Windows users to run with EBS for the duration of your respective EBS Extended Support period.  Updates will be delivered via My Oracle Support, where you can continue to receive critical bug fixes and security fixes as well as general maintenance for JRE 6 desktop clients. 

    Coexistence of JRE 6 and JRE 7 on Windows desktops

    The upgrade to JRE 7 is highly recommended for EBS users, but some users may need to run both JRE 6 and 7 on their Windows desktops for reasons unrelated to the E-Business Suite.

    Most EBS configurations with IE and Firefox use non-static versioning by default. JRE 7 will be invoked instead of JRE 6 if both are installed on a Windows desktop. For more details, see "Appendix B: Static vs. Non-static Versioning and Set Up Options" in Notes 290807.1 and 393931.1.

    Applying Updates to JRE 6 and JRE 7 to Windows desktops

    Auto-update will keep JRE 7 up-to-date for Windows users with JRE 7 installed.

    Auto-update will only keep JRE 7 up-to-date for Windows users with both JRE 6 and 7 installed. 

    JRE 6 users are strongly encouraged to apply the latest Critical Patch Updates as soon as possible after each release. The Jave SE CPUs will be available via My Oracle Support.  EBS users can find more information about JRE 6 and 7 updates here:

    The dates for future Java SE CPUs can be found on the Critical Patch Updates, Security Alerts and Third Party Bulletin.  An RSS feed is available on that site for those who would like to be kept up-to-date.

    What do Mac users need?

    Mac users running Mac OS 10.7 or 10.8 can run JRE 7 plug-ins.  See this article:

    EBS 12 certified with Mac OS X 10.7 and 10.8 with Safari 6 and JRE 7

    Will EBS users be forced to upgrade to JDK 7 for EBS application tier servers?

    No. This upgrade is recommended but optional for EBS application tier servers running on Windows, Linux, and Solaris.  You can choose to remain on JDK 6 for the duration of your respective EBS Extended Support period.  If you remain on JDK 6, you will continue to receive critical bug fixes and security fixes as well as general maintenance for JDK 6.

    JDK 7 is certified with E-Business Suite 12.  See:

    Java (JDK) 7 Certified for E-Business Suite 12 Servers

    Java JRE 1.7.0_40 Certified with Oracle E-Business Suite

    Java logoJava Runtime Environment 7u40 (a.k.a. JRE 7u40-b43) and later updates on the JRE 7 codeline are now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i and 12 for Windows-based desktop clients.

    All JRE 6 and 7 releases are certified with EBS upon release

    Our standard policy is that all E-Business Suite customers can apply all JRE updates to end-user desktops from JRE 1.6.0_03 and later updates on the 1.6 codeline, and from JRE 7u10 and later updates on the JRE 7 codeline.  We test all new JRE 1.6 and JRE 7 releases in parallel with the JRE development process, so all new JRE 1.6 and 7 releases are considered certified with the E-Business Suite on the same day that they're released by our Java team. 

    You do not need to wait for a certification announcement before applying new JRE 1.6 or JRE 7 releases to your EBS users' desktops.

    What's needed to enable EBS environments for JRE 7?

    EBS customers should ensure that they are running JRE 7u17, at minimum, on Windows desktop clients.

    Of the compatibility issues identified with JRE 7, the most critical is an issue that prevents E-Business Suite Forms-based products from launching on Windows desktops that are running JRE 7. 

    Customers can prevent this issue -- and all other JRE 7 compatibility issues -- by ensuring that they have applied the latest certified patches documented for JRE 7 configurations to their EBS application tier servers. 

    These patches are compatible with JRE 6 and 7, production ready, and fully-tested with the E-Business Suite.  These patches may be applied immediately to all E-Business Suite environments. All other Forms prerequisites documented in the Notes above should also be applied. 

    Where are the official patch requirements documented?

    All patches required for ensuring full compatibility of the E-Business Suite with JRE 7 are documented in these Notes:

    For EBS 11i:

    For EBS 12

    No need to worry -- it's fixed.  To recap: JRE releases 1.6.0_18 through 1.6.0_22 had issues with mismanaging session cookies that affected some users in some circumstances.

    The fix for those issues was first included in JRE 1.6.0_23. These fixes will carry forward and continue to be fixed in all future JRE releases on the JRE 6 and 7 codelines.  In other words, if you wish to avoid the mismanaged session cookie issue, you should apply any release after JRE 1.6.0_22 on the JRE 6 codeline, and JRE 7u10 and later JRE 7 codeline updates.

    Implications of Java 6 End of Public Updates for EBS Users

    The Support Roadmap for Oracle Java is published here:

    The latest updates to that page (as of Sept. 19, 2012) state (emphasis added):

    Java SE 6 End of Public Updates Notice

    After February 2013, Oracle will no longer post updates of Java SE 6 to its public download sites. Existing Java SE 6 downloads already posted as of February 2013 will remain accessible in the Java Archive on Oracle Technology Network. Developers and end-users are encouraged to update to more recent Java SE versions that remain available for public download. For enterprise customers, who need continued access to critical bug fixes and security fixes as well as general maintenance for Java SE 6 or older versions, long term support is available through Oracle Java SE Support .

    What does this mean for Oracle E-Business Suite users?

    EBS users fall under the category of "enterprise users" above.  Java is an integral part of the Oracle E-Business Suite technology stack, so EBS users will continue to receive Java SE 6 updates from February 2013 to the end of Java SE 6 Extended Support in June 2017.

    In other words, nothing changes for EBS users after February 2013. 

    EBS users will continue to receive critical bug fixes and security fixes as well as general maintenance for Java SE 6. These Java SE 6 updates will be made available to EBS users for the Extended Support periods documented in the Oracle Lifetime Support policy document for Oracle Applications (PDF):

    1. EBS 11i Extended Support ends November 2013
    2. EBS 12.0 Extended Support ends January 2015
    3. EBS 12.1 Extended Support ends December 2018

    How can EBS customers obtain Java 6 updates after the public end-of-life?

    EBS customers can download Java 6 patches from My Oracle Support.  For a complete list of all Java SE patch numbers, see:

    Will EBS users be forced to upgrade to JRE 7 for Windows desktop clients?

    No. This upgrade is highly recommended but currently remains optional. JRE 6 will be available to Windows users to run with EBS for the duration of your respective EBS Extended Support period.  Updates will be delivered via My Oracle Support, where you can continue to receive critical bug fixes and security fixes as well as general maintenance for JRE 6 desktop clients. 

    Coexistence of JRE 6 and JRE 7 on Windows desktops

    The upgrade to JRE 7 is highly recommended for EBS users, but some users may need to run both JRE 6 and 7 on their Windows desktops for reasons unrelated to the E-Business Suite.

    Most EBS configurations with IE and Firefox use non-static versioning by default. JRE 7 will be invoked instead of JRE 6 if both are installed on a Windows desktop. For more details, see "Appendix B: Static vs. Non-static Versioning and Set Up Options" in Notes 290807.1 and 393931.1.

    Applying Updates to JRE 6 and JRE 7 to Windows desktops

    Auto-update will keep JRE 7 up-to-date for Windows users with JRE 7 installed.

    Auto-update will only keep JRE 7 up-to-date for Windows users with both JRE 6 and 7 installed. 

    JRE 6 users are strongly encouraged to apply the latest Critical Patch Updates as soon as possible after each release. The Jave SE CPUs will be available via My Oracle Support.  EBS users can find more information about JRE 6 and 7 updates here:

    The dates for future Java SE CPUs can be found on the Critical Patch Updates, Security Alerts and Third Party Bulletin.  An RSS feed is available on that site for those who would like to be kept up-to-date.

    What do Mac users need?

    Mac users running Mac OS 10.7 or 10.8 can run JRE 7 plug-ins.  See this article:

    Will EBS users be forced to upgrade to JDK 7 for EBS application tier servers?

    No. This upgrade is recommended but optional for EBS application tier servers running on Windows, Linux, and Solaris.  You can choose to remain on JDK 6 for the duration of your respective EBS Extended Support period.  If you remain on JDK 6, you will continue to receive critical bug fixes and security fixes as well as general maintenance for JDK 6.

    JDK 7 is certified with E-Business Suite 12.  See:

For information on operating systems supported by Oracle WebLogic Server 11g and Oracle WebCenter Portal, refer to the 'Oracle Fusion Middleware on WebLogic Server - System Certification' in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.x) Certification Matrix.

      Integration with Oracle WebCenter Portal involves components spanning several different suites of Oracle products. There are no restrictions on which platform any particular component may be installed so long as the platform is supported for that component.

      Migrating to Oracle WebCenter

      If you're currently using Oracle Portal, you should be aware that Portal is now in maintenance mode.  Updates with bug fixes will continue to be produced, but you should consider migrating to Oracle WebCenter for ongoing new features.
