Apps 12.0.1 Release Update Pack Now Available
By Steven Chan - EBS-Oracle on Apr 26, 2007
The first major update for Apps Release 12 is now available for download from Metalink:
- Oracle E-Business Suite 12.0.1 Release Update Pack (Patch 5082400)
A short word about terminology is needed before I go much further. In Release 11i, we have these things called Rollup Patches, which inexplicably became known as "RUPs." Release 11i Rollup Patches contain patches for a single product family (e.g. ATG Family Pack H Rollup 4).
In Release 12, we're now shipping these things called Release Update Packs. Given the way that neologisms form, it's inevitable that these will be called "RUPs" too. The difference is that the R12 Release Update Packs combine patches created across several E-Business Suite product families.
If you're paying attention, it should be dawning on you about now that "Release Update Packs" in Release 12 are the equivalent of "Consolidated Updates" in Release 11i. These are big, important patches.
