JRIMETA.DAT and how java class files can be overwritten by lower versions contained in a patch

(Doc ID 1304331.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Application Object Library - Version 11.5.10.0 to 12.1.3 [Release 11.5 to 12.1]
Oracle Applications Technology Stack - Version 11.5.10.0 to 12.1.3 [Release 11.5 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal


Prevent java class files from being overwritten by lower versions when applying patches.

For example before the patch installation:
- OAWebBeanMetaData.class's version is 115.41,

and after applying RUP7:
- OAWebBeanMetaData.class's version is 115.10

Thus during the patch application via adpatch, the .class file was overwritten by an older version.
