 Per the RMS 1603 installation guide,  the following jars is suggested to be dropped. Are these jars fully deprecated in 19c or is there any 19c equivalent versions that need to be loaded post 19c upgrade?
 What are the instructions to perform the below for post 19c upgrade as its not mentioned in RMS 1603 IG ?
 Are the below steps listed in the RMS 1603 install guide mandatory for RMS functionality? 
 From above implemetation guide, On item 7 under section "Grant permission to the user", what is the "basename" directory here ?
 Under section "Load RBO Oracle Objects into the database" , can this step be skipped as the same rib type objects are already available under RMS schema as well?
 The document links mentions about granting "DBA" role to the <WEB_SERVICE_CALLER_USER> i.e. "RMS" user in this case. Does DBA privileges needs to be assigned to RMS user ?
 As per the RMS 1603 installation guide, The following objects are getting dropped before the 19c upgrade. However there are not steps mentioned to recreate these objects post 19c upgrade and as mentioned "Load RBO Oracle Objects into the database" can be skipped, if RMS user is used for the webservice calls. So in this case will the above dropped objects will not be available post 19c upgrade, is this the correct approach?
 Is this upgrade approach certified, Current state (RMS 16.0.2 & 12c DB) => Upgrade to RMS 16.0.3(keeping DB 12c) => Later DB upgrade to 19c?
