Oct 19, 2016 : This document is to announce the deprecation of FMW Test To Production (T2P) feature that has existed in 11g and 12c up to 12.2.1.2.0.  T2P will be de-supported from 12.2.1.3.0 onward.

T2P is documented at the following location for version 12.2.1.2:

 For 11g versions, (latest FMW 11.1.1.9 with WLS 10.3.6), the T2P documentation is here:

This document contains the stated plan from Product Management followed by the feature replacement update for 12.2.1.3 with Oracle Documentation links to follow:

Actions

T2P will no longer be available for Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c version 12.2.1.3 and higher.

Based on the important use cases reported for using T2P, the following tools are planned to be introduced and supported beginning with 12.2.1.3:

  1. A tool to copy existing Oracle Home (including patches installed) to another location. This would be an equivalent of existing CopyBinary/PasteBinary but will be an install framework tool.


  2. Change hostname (chghost) tool – This will have two modes:

    1. One mode of operation will allow the rewiring of configuration files when the machine’s hostname/IP-address changes.
    2. The second mode will rewire the configuration files when moving an Oracle Database containing metadata repository from one host to another.
      (The cloning of the DB would be outside the scope of this tool).


  3. Cloning – The cloning use-case will be supported in a restricted scenario where the paths, jdk, topology, etc are exactly the same on source and target. Once the source binaries are copied to the target (using either #1 or other file-system based cloning tools), the tool will run #2a and #2b to take care of the re-wiring of domain hostname and DB hostname.
