Patch-Related Enhancements in Release 12

Patching is an integral part of an Apps DBA's operational duties, and I've previously written about some of the things we're working on to improve the whole Lifecycle Management experience.

In his OpenWorld 2006 session, Kenneth Baxter took the wraps off some of the new patching and maintenance features coming in Release 12.  His crisp presentation is full of interesting details about the changes to the maintenance capabilities in R12's Oracle Applications Manager, notably:
  • New Patch Wizard functionality, improving the process of identifying, downloading, and analyzing recommended patches
  • Registering flagged files to understand a patch's impact on customizations
  • Improvements in determining whether given patches have been applied
  • Manual Steps Infrastructure (MSI) functionality, reducing the number and complexity of manual steps
  • Support for checking codelevels and baselines, reducing the risk of a patch "breaking" other functionality
  • Patch filters to tailor patch searches to your specific environment
  • Central access point for all patch details, including applied patch reports, timing reports, and log files
As an added bonus, his presentation is packed with R12 screenshots; you can download it here:

Hi Phani,

We have put the Config Wizards into 12.1 . A blog will cover this topic shortly.

Are you very much interested in having them in 12.0? It's some effort, but we could backport them depending on the customer interest.

Thanks,
Ivo
