End of Premier Support for Portal and Login Server 3.0.9

We deliver new patches and fixes for products while they're covered by Premier Support.  As of July 31, 2007, Premier Support has officially ended for Portal 3.0.9, Login Server 3.0.9, and Oracle Internet Directory 3.0.1 for E-Business Suite customers. 
Portal Upgrade Paths:

In addition, in December 2006 Sun has since desupported JDK 1.3, the prerequisite for Portal and Login Server 3.0.9.  So, there's no putting it off any longer:  it's really time to upgrade now.

Possible Prerequisites for Future ATG Rollups?

If Oracle's desupport of Portal 3.0.9 combined with Sun's desupport of JDK 1.3 aren't sufficient to convince you that it's time to upgrade, here's one more thing to consider:  future ATG Rollups may include dependencies that force existing Portal 3.0.9 users to upgrade to Portal 10g.

We are considering updating our ATG Family Pack Rollup packaging to include the heretofore-separate Single Sign-On 10g integration code.  The latter patch has been released separately for customers interested in integrating their environments with Oracle Application Server 10g. 

If the Single Sign-On 10g integration code is included in a future ATG Family Pack Rollup, say -- strictly hypothetically --ATG RUP 7, then existing Portal 3.0.9 users will have to upgrade to Portal 10g before they can apply the latest ATG Family Pack Rollup. 

It is expected that Release 11i environments using FND_USER-based authentication (instead of Login Server 3.0.9) will be unaffected by this change in packaging.  That is, if you're using FND_USER-based authentication today, you should be able to continue doing so even if the SSO 10g integration code is included in the latest ATG Family Pack Rollup.  But (and this is an important "but") this is subject to our internal validations of this configuration. 

Bottom Line:  Upgrade to Portal 10g Now

Regardless of what transpires with our inchoate changes to future ATG Family Pack Rollups, the following conclusion is inescapable:  if your Apps 11i environment is still on Portal 3.0.9, you should start your upgrade to Portal 10g immediately.
