Premier Support for Forms 10.1.2.2 Ends in April 2009
By Steven Chan-Development-Oracle on Mar 28, 2009
Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 includes OracleAS Forms & Reports 10g as part of its technology stack. EBS 12.0.0 shipped with Forms 10.1.2.0.2. We certified Forms 10.1.2.2 with EBS 12 in August 2007 and with Forms 10.1.2.3 in November 2008.
You should be aware that the Forms 10.1.2.2 grace period will end in April, 2009. After April 2009, you will still be able to download existing Forms 10.1.2.2 patches, but new patches will be issued only for the latest 10.1.2.3 release.
If you're running your E-Business Suite environment on Forms 10.1.2.2, I would strongly recommend planning an upgrade to the most-current certified Forms release. As of today, that's Forms 10.1.2.3. Future readers coming across this article should refer to this blog's one-page Certifications summary for the latest certified configurations.

The Server Technologies support policies have recently changed in some important ways. I've discussed the E-Business Suite implications of those changes in these articles:
- On Database Patching and Support: A Primer for E-Business Suite Users
- On Apps Tier Patching and Support: A Primer for E-Business Suite Users
I don't represent Server Technologies organization (I'm in E-Business Suite Development), but I'm happy to pass on your thoughts and feedback about Oracle's support policies to management teams in those groups. Feel free to post a comment below or send me a private email.
