My Oracle Support Certification Tool for Oracle Fusion Middleware Products
The most common Oracle Fusion Middleware (FMW) certifications have been integrated within My Oracle Support Certification tool beginning September 30, 2011. Beginning with FMW 184.108.40.206 and other FMW 11g R2 releases (e.g., Forms & Reports, Identity Access Management) there is a concerted effort to load all FMW certifications into the MOS Certification tool. Going forward all Oracle Fusion Middleware product certifications will be available in My Oracle Support.
- The Certification Central Hub on Oracle Technology Network (OTN) is the primary certification resource for older FMW releases and an additional channel for release certifications after FMW 220.127.116.11. It includes comprehensive and maintained FMW certification matrices including adapters and WAS support. Going forward, this will also be used for a single source of truth for FMW certifications. The data in My Oracle Support is derived from these matrices.
- "My Oracle Support Certifications" (http://support.oracle.com, click Certifications tab) is a self-service certification application that is part of the My Oracle Support (MOS) ecosystem which provides a structured display of certification data. MOS Certifications includes the most common FMW certification details as highlighted in the scope below. Updated news and updates for the MOS Certification Tool is available at https://blogs.oracle.com/certify/
The MOS Certification tool is not a replacement for OTN Central Hub. It is an additional tool to access only the most common FMW certifications. MOS Certifications and OTN Certification Central Hub will co-exist and maintained together using the same data. Both may be used to look up FMW certifications, depending on your requirements. Going forward, all newer FMW product releases will be added to MOS, but older releases (e.g. 10g products) will not be added to MOS.
Use My Oracle Support Certifications
Before going to My Oracle Support and clicking the Certifications tab, you should first understand the scope of the new tool for Oracle Fusion Middleware products. It does not include all versions or all products. Availability of data through the new tool will be released over time for only the newest releases of Oracle Fusion Middleware products. After this initial phase, all FMW products will be listed for their new releases.

Comparing MOS Certifications and OTN Certification Central Hub
Oracle Fusion Middleware certifications cover a wide range of certification data with other Oracle and non-Oracle products, SOA Adapters, Interoperability, Exalogic, and other certification details. Since there is an option between OTN and MOS to look up certifications, the table provides sample usage guidelines:
Type of Certification OTN Central Hub MOS Certifications Comments JDK
* Non-Oracle DBs
* Web Server
* SOA Adapters
Coming soon to MOS OBIEE, EPM, ECM
IPv6 will not be loaded in MOS Virtualization
Coming soon to MOS

Frequently Asked Questions
1. SOA Certifications
I have a SOA 10g installation on an older machine and investigating hardware and Oracle product upgrades. I will need certification details for SOA 10g (10.1.3) and SOA 11g (11.1.1), primarily the operating systems, Java and Oracle Databases. Which is the best place to look for this certification information, OTN or MOS?
All Oracle SOA Suite certification information can be found at the following location:
Oracle Fusion Middleware Supported System Configurations (Certification Central Hub)
Primary SOA document titles to look for:
- 11g: "System Requirements and Supported Platforms for Oracle Fusion Middleware 11gR1"
- 10g: "System Requirements and Supported Platforms for Oracle SOA Suite and Application Adapters 10gR3"
Starting with the 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 releases, common certification details for SOA 11g is now also available on My Oracle Support by clicking the "Certifications" tab.
