As you know, one of the most significant new features of Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2 is Online Patching, which greatly reduces the periods of downtime needed when applying patches.
The two main requirements of online patching can be stated in two simple rules:
An online patch must not break the running application
The running application must not break the online patch
Therefore , its important to ensure custom code complies with the new standards that ensure the relevant database objects and code can successfully be patched online. These three utilities exist in R12.2 which helps you to cross check Online Patching requirements violations.
- Online Patching Enablement Readiness Report, which checks the system's preparedness for Online Patching enablement.
- Online Patching Database Compliance Checker (ADZDDBCC.sql), which reports database objects standards violations.
- Global Standards Compliance Checker (gscc.pl), which scans the file system for source files that violate the standards.
The Online Patching Readiness Report can be run at any time before or after the upgrade to Release 12.2. This is particularly useful in checking for future violations
You can refer to the Release 12.2 Upgrade Guide and the Release 12.2 Developer's Guide for more information about these utilities
