[June 18, 2008 Update: Mentioned the Oracle Diagnostics regression fix]
[May 6, 2008 Update: Clarified that Developer 6i patchset 18 was recommended in Jan2007 CPU]
[Editor's Note: Ivo Dujmovic leads the hard-working Applications Technology Integration development team responsible for the E-Business Suite's technology stack and configuration management tools, including AutoConfig and its associated templates. He's been providing deep technical guidance for this blog from the wings since its inception, so we're very lucky to have his direct contributions for this particular announcement. I'm skipping the customary introductory article for him in the interest of getting this article published quickly, but we'll get a proper public welcome out for him soon.]
The latest TXK Rollup Patch S (Patch 6372396) is now released and is generally available for download from Oracle Metalink. The official name for this patch is:
- TXK AutoConfig and Templates Rollup Patch S (APRIL/MAY 2008, Patch 6372396)
This Rollup patch is cumulative: it includes all E-Business Suite technology stack configuration fixes that we've previously released either individually or in patch sets such as TXK Autoconfig Rollup Patch R (October/November 2007) and TXK AutoConfig Rollup Patch Q (Jul/Aug 2007).
But that's not all! For completeness we have also added TXK Advanced Utilities Rollup Patch C (APRIL 2006) and other subsequent fixes in this area.
For more details about this patch's contents, see the README. In the near future, we will also publish a couple of separate blog articles on the new features we are introducing.
Additional New Prerequisites
In addition to previous Oracle Home technology stack prerequisites (identified at patch-time via txkprepatchcheck utility), we have picked up a new ORACLE_HOME dependency on:
In the APPL_TOP, we picked up dependencies on fairly old and well-adopted rollups:
- 2032040 - Workflow 2.6 For Applications 11i [part of EBS11.5.7]
- 3313291 - AOL Java Rollup Patch J [part of EBS11.5.10,11i.ATG_PF.H]
- 3764779 - SSO Pre-Req for Application Products Rollup F [part of EBS11.5.10, 11i.ATG_PF.H]
We know that part of the reason why our TXK RUPs enjoy such high adoption rates (thousands of downloads per quarter) is that they are self-contained. At this point in time, we have decided that taking up a wider set of well-adopted dependencies is a minimal price to pay for providing customers with all the latest technology configuration management functionality.
Please tell us if you find these additional requirements burdensome!
