      We are pleased to announce the availability of the fifth consolidated patch collection for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3.  This patchset combines important patches for Release 12.1.3 into a single integrated and regression-tested patchset:

      EBS 12.1.3 RPC 5 screenshot download

      Reasons to Apply RPC5

      Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3 has been available for a while, and over its lifetime has been significantly enhanced in numerous ways. These enhancements and fixes are provided as individual patches, product family Release Update Packs (RUP), and product-specific Recommended Patch Collections (RPC).

      For example, there are Recommended Patch Collections for Financials products such as General Ledger and Payables. On the technology side, there are patchsets such as the OA Framework Consolidated Update Patch.

      Identifying and applying all the individual patches, RUPs, and RPCs you need can be time-consuming. Complicating matters further, patchsets across multiple product families are generally not tested together.

      Patches included in Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3+ RPC5 are also available individually, and may contain conditions and prerequisites relevant to their application. RPC5 includes all the recommended patches, along with their dependencies. Applying this patch in a single downtime patching window saves effort and time, rather than applying each recommended patch individually.

      What's Included in RPC5?

      The EBS 12.1.3+ RPC4 patchset includes the latest recommended patches and their dependencies for the following Oracle E-Business Suite products and product families:

      • Applications Technology (ATG)
      • Oracle Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
      • Oracle Financials (FIN)
      • Oracle Human Resource Management System (HRMS)
      • Oracle Procurement (PRC)
      • Oracle Projects (PJ)
      • Oracle Supply Chain Management (SCM)
      • Oracle Value Chain Planning (VCP)
      • Oracle Business Intelligence (BIS)

      Is it necessary to apply this RPC if I only use a subset of Oracle E-Business Suite products?

      Applying this RPC is recommended even if you are using only a subset of Oracle E-Business Suite products. The patching utility 'adpatch' takes care of the files to be applied and generates them based on the product installation status.

      I have already applied a few Family Packs included in this RPC. What happens when I apply this RPC?

      Applying this RPC on top of already applied individual Family Packs will not harm your system because the patching utility 'adpatch' skips the files already applied on the system. You can apply the latest available RPC on your system.

      A patch I need isn't included in this RPC. Why not?

      This RPC combines recommended patches that were released after Release 12.1.3 into a single, integrated and regression-tested patch to help ensure a successful installation. If you don't find the patch in the RPC, it is likely that the patch was released after the patch list for the specific RPC was frozen or the patch was not marked "recommended" at the time the list was generated.

      Should I only install the latest RPC? Do I have to install all prior RPCs? Should I install later individual product family RPCs?

      To keep your system up-to-date with the most current Oracle E-Business Suite recommended patches, you should only apply the latest available RPC (which supersedes any prior release suitewide RPC) and thereafter either install individual product-level recommended patches as required or install the next suitewide level RPC when it becomes available.

      clip_image001Messsage or execution tracing in Servicebus (SB) allows insight into the message exchange between Servicebus and it’s communication partners (Client applications and Service providers) as well as the message processing within  a pipeline. Informations about incoming and outgoing messages, the corresponding headers, the course of variable manipulations and other things are written to the diagnostic logs and can be inspected there, when the tracing is active. By default the message and execution tracing are disabled, due to performance reasons and so it should only be enabled in development environments for debugging purposes.

      Enablement of message tracing for proxy or business service or execution tracing on the pipeline level, can be done using Fusion Middleware Control (Enterprise Manager).Under a specific SB project, the corresponding services and pipelines can be found. Enabling the tracing can be simply done by checking the options for message tracing respectively execution tracing in the Operations tab. Read the complete article here.

      clip_image002We have seen in several customer scenarios where a Parent BPEL process calls a child BPEL process asynchronously.  If child process runs into any kind of business or system fault,  fault handler sends callback to parent process with failure information.   Please note, since parent had invoked child process asynchronously,  child can't throw fault back to parent.  Callback is only mechanism to inform parent about the failure in child process execution during asynchronous interaction.   This pattern works fine if transaction of child process is not getting rolled back.   If child process encounters some error where underlying JTA transaction is marked for rollback,  callback may not reach parent process if parent and child are collocated.   This is because,  callback invoke from child to parent will use the child's JTA transaction to save callback in dehydration store, but since child's transaction is in rollback state,  callback message information would be rolled back from dehydration store after JTA transaction rolls back.

      Second issue is while trying to terminate an instance after it has encountered error which results into transaction rollback.  Since terminate state update of instance in dehydration store will be rolled back with transaction, any attempt to execute terminate in fault handler will be futile.

      We are recommending a pattern that could help resolve both of above problems. Please look at the flow: Read the complete article here.

        Database migration across platforms of different "endian" (byte ordering) formats using the Transportable Tablespaces (TTS) process is now certified for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2 (12.2.3 or higher) with Oracle Database 12c Release 1 (12.1.0).

        This certification requires that the source database be 11gR2 ( or 12cR1 ( and the target database be 12cR1 ( This 12.2/12cR1 database migration process utilizes the 'full transportable export/import' feature of 12c to greatly speed up the migration while also offering the optional use of incremental backup.

        This migration process requires a patch delivered by the EBS Platform Engineering team which is now generally available on MOS for use by EBS customers.

        The "endian-ness" of platforms can be checked by querying the view V$TRANSPORTABLE_PLATFORM using sqlplus (connected as sysdba):

        SQL> select platform_name, endian_format from v$transportable_platform;

        Here's a list of relevant platforms certified for the EBS R12 with 12cR1 on the database tier:

         Big Endian
         Little Endian
         Oracle Solaris on SPARC
         Linux x86-64
         HP-UX Itanium
         Windows x64
         IBM AIX on Power Systems
         Oracle Solaris on x86-64
         IBM: Linux on System z

        The use of Transportable Tablespaces may greatly speed up the migration of the data portion of the database - it does not affect metadata which must still be migrated using export/import. Smaller databases (less than 1TB) may see little gain from the use of Transportable Tablespaces, and other techniques like export/import will be simpler and likely faster.

        For smaller databases, we highly recommend that users initially perform a test migration with export/import on their database with the 'metrics=y' parameter to find out the relative size of data vs metadata in their database and to have a basis to compare any gains in timing. Generally speaking, the larger the relative size of data (as compared to metadata), the more likely it would be that TTS is suitable as a migration process to reduce downtime.

        Database migration between platforms of the same endian format should use the 'Transportable Database' process or Rapid Clone if migrating between the same platform.

          Today at JCrete, Dan North and others suggested a really cool feature—the ability to format a Java source file based on the interfaces that the Java source file is implementing. The "Ordering" formatting options for Java source files in NetBeans IDE are quite detailed by default:

          However, the new interface-driven formatting options, which I am implementing in a new tab (since the tab above is pretty full and can't be extended externally via a plugin anyway), enable the interfaces of the implementing class to determine the ordering of class members:

          Here's Dan's notes on the above options:

          Here's the code providing the GUI above, as well as the registration-related code for plugging the GUI into NetBeans IDE:

          Now "all" that needs to be done is implement the logic behind the above GUI. Anyone is welcome to join in with this cool JCrete-driven feature!
