Goal

- How to handle VERSION.TXT files when you have multiple patches?

- When Oracle supplies an OBIEE patch, its README file always says to replace the VERSION.TXT file on the [Oracle Home] directory with the one included.
 
- When you apply a second, unrelated patch to the environment why would we want to replace the entire VERSION.TXT file?
 
- Would you append the text in the second patch's VERSION.TXT file to the first?
 
- How will this display on the Settings > Administration window when it displays the information in the Product Information box?

- Are OBIEE Patches cumulative?
