***NOTE: This article is now obsolete because the Smart Update capability to download patches and installers has been decommissioned.***
The Smart Update utility is provided with Oracle WebLogic Server to download and apply patches. These patches are usually one-off patches intended to solve a particular problem, or sometimes a merge patch which brings together several other patches which all make changes to a particular Java class.
In some cases, Smart Update also provides the capability to apply a patchset or maintenance pack, which upgrades your WebLogic Server environment from one minor version to another (e.g., 10.3.0 -> 10.3.3). Generally, we recommend using upgrade installers to install patchsets, because there is greater flexibility and choice available in the upgrade installers available through My Oracle Support. See How Can I Download Upgrade Installers for Oracle WebLogic Server (WLS)? <Note 1074946.1> for more information.
These are the steps to download and apply patches using Smart Update in graphical (GUI) and console (text-based) modes.If your system is offline (that is, it doesn't have Internet access), please see How to Apply WebLogic Server (WLS) Patches to an Offline System using Smart Update <Note 876004.1>.
