New Oracle E-Business Suite R12 OS and Tools Requirements on IBM AIX on Power Systems

logo_ibm.jpgIBM has announced May 1st, 2011 as the end of Support for Version 8 of the IBM XL C/C++ compiler currently used for Release 12 builds and patching. The target date of the switchover -- May 1st 2011 -- corresponds to when this older compiler will no longer be supported by IBM.

Beginning on May 1st 2011, Oracle E-Business Suite patches for Release 12 (12.0, 12.1) on the IBM AIX on Power Systems platform will be built with Version 9 of the IBM XL C/C++ compiler. 

Customers who plan to patch or upgrade their E-Business Suite R12 environments after May 1st, 2011 must meet all the new requirements prior to applying new patches or upgrades.

Please review the documents below for all new requirements pertaining to the new runtime and utilities packages on IBM AIX on Power Systems.

hi John -
Our change to the compiler used to build R12 patches on AIX have no effect on 11i which are built and maintained separately.
