Premier Support for OC4J 10.1.3.3 ends in July 2009
By Steven Chan (Oracle Development) on Mar 29, 2009
Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 includes OracleAS 10.1.3 Oracle Containers for J2EE (OC4J) for running its Java-based content. We certified Apps 12 with OracleAS 10.1.3.3 in January 2008 and with OracleAS 10.1.3.4 in December 2008.
You should be aware that the OracleAS 10.1.3.3 grace period will end in July 2009. After July 2009, you will still be able to download existing OracleAS 10.1.3.3 patches, but new patches will be issued only for the latest 10.1.3.4 release.
If you're running your E-Business Suite environment on OracleAS 10.1.3.3, I would strongly recommend planning an upgrade to the most-current certified OC4J release. As of today, that's OracleAS 10.1.3.4. Future readers coming across this article should refer to this blog's one-page Certifications summary for the latest certified configurations.
Want To Know More About Support Policies?
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.
