Oracle Database 11.2.0.4 Certified with E-Business Suite 12.2

I'm very happy to announce the certification of Oracle Database 11.2.0.4 with Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2. 

To begin planning your database upgrade to 11.2.0.4, you should review our documentation in this order:

  1. Interoperability Notes: Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 with Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (Note 1623879.1) 

  2. R12.2 Consolidated List of Patches and Technology Bug Fixes (Note 1594274.1) .  The interoperability note references this note.  It is crucial that you review all requirements in Section 2.2, "Database 11.2.0.4 Patches and Bug Numbers" of this note.

  3. Database Initialization Parameters for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 (Note 396009.1).  Make certain that you review Section 4, "Release-Specific Database Initialization Parameters For Oracle 11gR2" and Section 6, "Additional Database Initialization Parameters for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2".

What does this mean if you are upgrading to R12.2?

  • This upgrade is highly recommended for all EBS 12.2 environments.

  • If you are just beginning your upgrade to R12.2 project, you should consider upgrading to Oracle Database 11.2.0.4 now. 

  • If your are currently in the midst of your R12.2 upgrade, you may continue as planned with Oracle Database 11.2.0.3 and upgrade to 11.2.0.4 as your R12.2 upgrade project and test plans permit.

  • If your go-live date is soon, you may choose to continue as planned with Oracle Database 11.2.0.3 and upgrade to 11.2.0.4 after you go-live with 12.2.

It may be useful to review the the Oracle Database 11gR2 support policies and dates as part of your decision-making process:

    Upgrades from AMP & ACMP 3


    This plug-in supersedes the Oracle Application Management Pack for Oracle E-Business Suite 3.1. An upgrade path to 4.0 is provided from 3.1 only. Therefore it is mandatory for the existing installations to be at the Application Management Pack for Oracle E-Business Suite 3.1 level before upgrading to 4.0.

    AMP & ACMP 4.0 run only with EM 11g, and vice versa

    If you're running AMP or ACMP 3.1 on EM 10gR5 and upgrade to AMP/ACMP 4.0, you must upgrade to EM 11g.

    If you're running AMP or ACMP 3.1 on EM 10gR5 and upgrade to EM 11g, you must upgrade to AMP or ACMP 4.0.

    11gR2 11.2.0.2 Database Certified with E-Business Suite

    [Jan 20, 2011 Update: Removed erroneous Linux x86-64 SLES 9 database tier reference]

    [Nov 18, 2010 Update: Added HP-UX Itanium to the EBS 11i list of pending certifications]


    We certified the 11gR2 11.2.0.1 Database with E-Business Suite 11i and EBS 12 late in 2009.  It's taken a little longer than we had hoped to certify 11.2.0.2, the first patchset for the 11gR2 Database.  The reasons: the release cycle for 11.2.0.2 overlapped with our EBS 12.1.3 release cycle, and some of the ports for this patchset weren't released until just before Halloween.  Our Server Technologies team is as-yet working on other ports, too.

    I know that some of you have been eager to apply this latest patchset to your E-Business Suite databases, so I'm very pleased to announce that Oracle Database 11gR2 Patchset 1 Version 11.2.0.2 is now certified with the E-Business Suite.

    Secure Enterprise Search 10.1.8.4 Certified with E-Business Suite 11i

    Secure Enterprise Search 10.1.8.4 was certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.0 earlier this year.  Our Applications Technology Group has just released their certification of Secure Enterprise Search 10.1.8.4 with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i.

    If you missed that earlier announcement, here's a recap of the basics. Secure Enterprise Search (SES) provides new search capabilities for EBS: Apps users can search for E-Business Suite data using a unified search engine, with search results displayed based upon their Applications responsibilities. Searches can be performed on structured and unstructured data. Notably, search results respect multi-level security, including:
    • Role-based access control (RBAC) functional and data security
    • Product-specific security policies
    Secureenterprisesearch1.jpg

    For example, an authorized E-Business Suite user could use the search screen above to search for "Assets" in "Northpark," yielding the following results:

    SESsearchresults2.jpg
    Introducing the Search Modeller

    This certification also has an added bonus:  it includes the new Search Modeler for E-Business Suite customers.  Search Modeler Version 1.1 is certified with Apps 11i as well as Apps 12 releases.

    Search Modeler is a web-based tool that allows you to create search solutions tailored to your business needs. You can create search solutions for any E-Business Suite product. In most cases you can also include custom application objects as part of your search solution, if your custom applications as registered in the EBS Application Object Library.

    Prerequisites
    • Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i version 11.5.10.2
    • Oracle Applications Technology 11i.ATG_PF.H.delta.6 (Release Update Pack 6)
    • Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10.1.8.4
    Supported Platforms

    Secure Enterprise Search may be optionally installed on standalone external server and integrated with EBS 11i. The operating system platforms supported for the standalone Secure Enterprise Search instance are:
    • Linux x86 (Oracle Enterprise Linux 4, Red Hat Linux 3, 4; SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9)
    • Linux x86-64 (Oracle Enterprise Linux 4, Red Hat Linux 3,4; SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9)

    Thirteen New E-Business 12.1.1 Database-Tier Only Certifications for 10gR2

    Our Applications Platforms Group has just released a flurry of new platform certifications for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.1 for the 10gR2 10.2.0.4 Database Server.  The following operating systems are now certified for database-tier only deployments:
    • Sun Solaris x86-64 (Solaris 10) 
    • IBM: Linux on System z (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5, Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise System 9 and 10)
    • IBM: Linux on Power Systems (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5, Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise System 9 and 10)
    • Linux Itanium (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5, Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise System 9 and 10)
    These database-tier only platforms were previously certified with E-Business Suite 12.0 and 10gR2.  Customers running those combinations can now apply the 12.1.1 Maintenance Pack to upgrade their application tier to EBS 12.1.1 while running the 10gR2 database on one of the above platforms.

    This is a database-tier only certification (previously known as a 'split configuration database tier' certification), where the application tier must be on a fully certified E-Business Suite R12 platform.

    Still Underway


    The certification of Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.1 with Windows 2003 (x64) and Windows Itanium as database tier-only platforms is still underway.  I don't have firm schedules for this certification yet, but you're welcome to monitor or subscribe to this blog for updates, which I'll post as soon as soon as they're available.
