How to patch OUI for installing overlay patches on top of Forms Bundle Patch - 9593176 (Doc ID 1301320.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 31, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Forms - Version 10.1.2.3.0 to 10.1.2.3.0 [Release 10.1.2.3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Starting with Forms Bundle <Patch:9593176> - special one-off patches can now be applied without having to wait for the next Forms Recommended Patch (Merge/MLR) to be released.
This type of patch is called a "sparse" patch or "overlay" patch.
OPatch has been modified to be able to apply this special type of patch without doing a full conflict check.

The goal of this document is to provide the steps that need to be done have the correct versions of the Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) and OPatch installed and configured for applying overlay patches on top of Forms Bundle Patch.

This is the error that occurs when an OVERLAY PATCH installation is attempted and this patch has NOT been applied successfully ->

"OPATCH_JAVA_ERROR=CheckConflict: OPatch cannot process overlay patches because of no OUI support. Please take latest OUI 10.1 patchset from "My Oracle Support" and try again.
Cannot check bug/file conflict and component prerequisite checks.

ERROR: OPatch failed during prerequisite check.
OPatch returns with error code = 150"
