Integration Repository for the E-Business Suite

Looking Ahead to Release 12
The Release 11i version of the repository is available online only. In Release 12, it's expected that the Integration Repository will be part of your Rapid Install. As your instance is patched, the repository will automatically be updated with content appropriate for the precise revisions of interfaces in your environment.
July 13 Update: We will also host an online version of the Integration Repository for Release 12, as well.
