    Steven, can you, please, make a lsit of new features in *.c.10 Oracle E-Business Suite Applications DBA and Technology Stack Release Notes for R12.AD.C.Delta.10 and R12.TXK.C.Delta.10 (Doc ID 2295390.1) links to For a complete list of new features in Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2, refer to My Oracle Support Knowledge Document 1302189.1 which has 100+ page pdf and it's not obvious what was added in *.c.10 rollup. Or I am missing something ?
    regards,
    Artem

    Hi Steven
    We're on AD/TXK Delta.7 - can we directly upgrade to Delta.10 (ie skip Deltas 8 and 9)?
    Neither Note 1617461.1 or 2295390.1 indicate whether this is ok or not.
    Thanks
    Paul
  • Steven Chan Tuesday, September 19, 2017
    Hi, Paul,

    Yes, you can apply any later Delta [x] update to any prior AD/TXK version.

    Thanks for bringing this documentation issue to my attention. I'll make sure that this gets clarified.

    Regards,
    Steven

    Hello, Artem,

    The list of bugs and new features specifically for AD/TXK 10 are documented in 2295390.1.

    Note 1302189.1 lists all new features in each EBS 12.1 and 12.2 release, which explains why it's such a long document.

    Regards,
    Steven

    Steven, looking at note 2295390.1:
    ---
    Section 1: What's New
    Note: For a complete list of new features in Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2, refer to My Oracle Support Knowledge Document 1302189.1, Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2 Release Content Documents.

    Oracle's Daily Business Intelligence (DBI), Balanced Scorecard (BSC), and Embedded Data Warehouse (EDW) are not offered with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2. We will continue to support customers on Release 12.1.x, 12.0.x and older versions of DBI, BSC, and EDW according to Oracle's stated lifetime support policies. For additional information, refer to My Oracle Support Knowledge Document 1351505.1 DBI: Announcing the Desupport of Daily Business Intelligence (DBI), Balanced Scorecard (BSC), and Embedded Data Warehouse (EDW).

    so that's a bugfix release mostly with no new features introduced ?
    Regards,
    Artem

    Hello, Artem,

    This update is focussed on performance and stability, but there are improvements to the tools. We strongly recommend that all EBS 12.2 users stay up-to-date with the latest AD/TXK patches. All new patches explicitly make the latest AD/TXK updates a mandatory prerequisite.

    Regards,
    Steven
