Information in this document applies to any platform.


This document is intended as an announcement and standing reference for the new Secure Global Desktop Gateway (SGDGW) Patch Mechanism, a utility intended to formalize the administration of future critical product updates from the Secure Global Desktop (SGD)  Sustaining organization.


The new Secure Global Desktop Gateway patch mechanism has been designed to be retroactively work with previous releases of the SGDGW product.  Available today as an add-on for SGD 4.63 - 5.1, this utility is formally integrated into the product starting with SGD 5.2.

Please Note:  With this announcement, Oracle continues to strongly recommend that customers work to normalize existing production deployments on the latest maintenance releases of product platforms to ensure they are able to benefit from all of the latest known stability and performance enhancements for a codebase.   This framework is intended as an extension of that commitment, and will allow trackable, iterative updates to existing systems.


There are presently two forms of the SGD Patch Mechanism: one for the core server product, and a second dedicated to the standalone SGD Gateway (SGDGW) component.  This document describes the SGD Patch Mechanism for the SGD Gateway.   Please see <Document 1584727.1> for more information about patching the core SGD product.
