Last updated on APRIL 03, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle JDeveloper - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The instructions included in the README file for an ADF Patch are sometimes difficult to understand.
For instance:

1. It is confusing what is said in section 1 (Prerequisites): The patch is needed to fix ADF problem and the zip file is for ADF Why does the instruction recommend to download the latest version of OPatch 13.1.x ?

2. In section 2 (Pre-Installation Instructions), it is not clear how to proceed as the following statement is not clear:
  a. Set environment variable ORACLE_HOME to the MW_HOME of your JDeveloper/JRF installed directory.

This note helps clarify these questions.
