  • EBS 12.2.3 Benefits vs 12.1.3 ■ Online Patching ▪ Apply patches with almost no downtime ■ Use WebLogic Server ▪ Improve system administration and monitoring options. Light weight. GUI. Integrated with OAM. ■ Several new features ▪ Many functional enhancements ▪ Mobile features ■ Cloning enhancements ■ Install to existing Oracle RDBMS install – RAC, ASM support ■ New experience for end users ▪ Look and feel enhanced ▪ Scrolling features enhanced
  • Comparing 12.2 and 12.1 Against 11.5.10.2
  • EBS 12.x Comparison at a Mile High ■ Significant changes to Financial products, Procurement, Supply Chain, Asset Life Cycle, Human Capital Management. Higher involvement from business and functional analysts required. ■ Technical components and architecture similar to 11i. ■ Several product schemas dropped, few added. ■ 12.1.3 functional changes PLUS ■ Functional enhancements - 12.1 to 12.2 upgrade is minimal impact to business and functional analysts. ■ Technical changes – WebLogic Server, Online Patching ■ Several more gone Upgrade to 12.1.3 Upgrade to 12.2.3
  • EBS 12.x Comparison at a Mile High - 2 ■ For direct upgrade to 12.1, instance must be 11.5.9 or higher. + 11i ADI6 ■ One APPL_TOP, INST_TOP ■ Oracle Identity Manager Single Sign-On ■ Oracle Portal ■ 11.2 database nice to have ■ For direct upgrade to 12.2, instance must be 11.5.10 CU2 or higher. + 11i ADI7 ■ Three file systems – production, copy for online patching, non-editioned ■ Oracle Access Manager (migrate before 12.2) ■ Oracle WebCenter Portal (migrate before 12.2) ■ 11.2.0.3 database mandatory Upgrade to 12.1.3 Upgrade to 12.2.3
  • EBS 12.x Comparison at a Mile High - 3 ■ Recommended to review customizations ■ Database passwords not Case Sensitive ■ Patch outages depend on size of patch. ■ Context File is the main configuration setup location ■ Smaller learning curve for DBAs ■ Customizations must comply coding standards to utilize Online Patching ■ Supports database password case sensitivity ■ Predictable smaller patch outages ■ FMW setup is outside of Autoconfig ■ Higher learning curve for DBAs Upgrade to 12.1.3 Upgrade to 12.2.3
  • Architecture Differences What DBAs need to Know!
  • Architecture – Database Releases 11.5.10.2 12.1.3 12.2.3 9i* 10g* 11g 12c 10.2.0.4+* 11.1.0.7+ 12c 11.2.0.3+ 12c ## ■ 9i and 10g databases are unsupported – upgrade to 11gR2+ ■ Note 12.1.0 database is supported on 11.5.10.2, 12.1.3 (and soon on 12.2?) ■ It is best to upgrade database to 11gR2+ even if you are not planning R12.x upgrade immediately.
