New Techstack Baseline for Release 11i, Redux
By Steven Chan (Oracle Development) on Aug 31, 2006
Our recently-announced new techstack baseline for Release 11i has triggered a lot of questions, particularly around desupport timing for older configurations, certification baselines for new patches, and the availability of old patches.
In response, we've just published a new version of the document that clarifies things: Rebaselined Oracle Applications Technology Components for Releases 11.5.7, 11.5.8, 11.5.9, and 11.5.10 (Metalink Note 363827.1).
I strongly encourage a careful review of this latest version. A few highlights:
- All customers should upgrade to the latest Oracle Applications Technology product family rollup, currently Oracle Applications Technology 11i.ATG_PF.H Rollup 4 (4676589).
- If you can't do that, you should have these patches installed, at minimum. All new Applications Technology patches -- starting with the July 2006 Critical Patch Update (CPUJul2006) -- require this minimum baseline.
- All patches released prior to the July 2006 Critical Patch Update will continue to be available for download.
- Beginning with the July 2007 Critical Patch Update (CPUJul2007), new ATG techstack patches will be certified only with the current and previous rollup patches.
