Questions and Answers
 What is the path to upgrade a set of Retail products to latest available 12.0.x versions?   For example, can you go directly from 12.0.6 to 12.0.11, or do you need to go step by step (i.e., 12.0.6 > 12.0.7 > 12.0.8 > 12.0.9 > 12.0.10 > 12.0.11)? 
 Does migration from RMS 12.0 to RMS 12.1 make sense as a path to get increased functionality?
 What does it take to go from 12.0 to 12.1?   Is data conversion required?
 If you want to go for RMS 12.1.x version from 12.0.6, will it be a fresh install and conversion of existing data?  Or can you simply upgrade to 12.1.x using your existing database?
 Where is the RMS 12.1.0 Installation Guide document?  It could not be found on Oracle Technology Network (OTN).
 We are not able to locate the patches/software for RMS 12.0.7, 12.0.8 and so on.
 Is RMS 12.1 a base release?
