Apps Technology 12.0.6 Update Now Available

In conjunction with last week's release of the Applications 12.0.6 Release Update Pack, the sixth major update for the Apps Release 12 technology stack is now available for download from Metalink:

Family Pack Updates vs. Release Update Packs

New readers might have missed previous discussions about naming standards. To recap: 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.

The patch that we're announcing today only includes updates for the Applications Technology family of products, that is, the technology stack for the E-Business Suite Release 12. This patch does not include updates to the functional applications like Financials or HRMS. For information about the broader Apps 12.0.6 Release Update Pack, see:

The Oracle Applications Technology Family Pack for Release 12.0.6 includes all fixes released on top of ATG Family Pack A, including those released in the following updates:

  • Apps 12.0.1 Release Update Pack
  • Apps 12.0.2 Release Update Pack
  • Apps 12.0.3 Release Update Pack
  • Apps 12.0.4 Release Update Pack

Since this is the sixth update to the Release 12 technology stack, its official (admittedly cryptic) name is: R12.ATG_PF.A.DELTA.6.

Prerequisites

This ATG Family Pack update can be applied on top of the following:

  • Apps 12.0.1 Release Update Pack

  • Apps 12.0.4 Release Update Pack

What's Been Fixed?

This update contains fixes for the following areas, each of which have now sprouted their own standalone Metalink Notes:

There are far too many fixes and new features to recount concisely or meaningfully here, but here are some highlights from the Oracle Applications Technology Stack Release Notes, Release 12.0.6 (Metalink Note 742110.1):

  • AutoConfig: Parallel Run Option
  • AutoConfig: Profiler
  • AutoConfig: Enhanced Check Configuration Tool
  • AutoConfig: Support for new Oracle Database 11g Features

I'm hoping that I'll be able to get some in-depth articles about these new AutoConfig features posted soon; stay tuned.
