Details

This document includes the announcement of the latest Fusion Middleware proactive patch releases and provides a single entry point to access all of the documentation pertaining to the Fusion Middleware proactive patches by product..

Note: The most current proactive patches are always available via the My Oracle Support Recommended Patch Advisor. For details on how to find Recommended Patches for your product and release, see <Note 859115.1>, "My Oracle Support Recommended Patches for Oracle WebLogic Server & Oracle Fusion Middleware Products".  This focus of the Patch Advisor and this document is to maintain your current environments. Major release announcements are found in <Note 1370970.1>, "Oracle Fusion Middleware Release Announcements and Other Important Documentation Links".

Proactive Patching Overview

Between Patch Set releases, Oracle's proactive patching program provides critical fixes to customers on a regular, predictable schedule in support of best maintenance practices.

Proactive patches are released on the same quarterly schedule as the Critical Patch Updates program releases, specifically the Tuesday closest to the 17th of January, April, July, and October. Exceptions to this schedule are documented in the product bundle patch documentation listed in the tables below.

There are a few different types of proactive patches - Patch Set Updates (PSUs), Product Bundle Patches, and Suite Bundle Patches. They all share the following characteristics:

The patch types differ in the nature of their content as follows:

A primary goal of the proactive patching program is to provide a series of proactive, stabilizing cumulative patches for a product version (release or patch set). The following are guidelines that Oracle follows for the bundle patch lifecycle for a product version. The specifics will vary depending on the content of individual bundles.

Version Numbers

Oracle associates a version number to each proactive patch. The fifth number of the product version is incremented for each patch. For example, if the initial SOA Suite Bundle Patch is version 11.1.1.6.1, the second Bundle Patch for Release 11.1.1.6 is 11.1.1.6.2, and so on.

This enables customers and Oracle Support to refer to just one number, the version, rather than a list of interim patches or sets of bundles that have been applied.

Note: Effective July 2017 the version numbers for some Fusion Middleware proactive patches have a new format. The new format replaces the 5th place release date of the bundle version with a build date in the form "YYMMDD" where:

YY is the last 2 digits of the year
MM is the numeric month (2 digits)
DD is the numeric day of the month (2 digits)

The build date may be different than the release date of the proactive patch. For example, the October 2017 proactive patches were released on October 17, 2017 and the Oracle Internet Directory bundle patch version was 11.1.1.9.170925. This denotes the bundle patch build date was September 25, 2017.

See <Note 2321320.1> for details.

 

Known Issues

Starting with the July 2016 release, proactive patches READMEs will include a link to a Known Issues document. These Known Issues documents will be scoped to a particular product and patch set version and are listed in the Proactive Patch Tables below. Review the Known Issues documents for information on late breaking issues and regressions.
