Changing the JRE version pushed by R12.2

Giving credit where credit is due

In light of all the recent fervor about Java, it’s appropriate that I give credit to Oracle when they get something right.

Changing JRE push version (minimum) in 12.2

It’s unbelievably easy.  Follow 393931.1

  • Download whatever version of Java you want to run this week for your enterprise </sarcasm> to /tmp
    • The way they’re pushing updates, I think I could script this whole thing to pull the latest version every week and install it….
  • cp /tmp/jre-7u67-windows-i586.exe $COMMON_TOP/webapps/oacore/util/javaplugin/j2se17067.exe
    • land it in the “push” directory
  • $FND_TOP/bin/ 17067
    • run this utility to link the AD utilities and your context file to the new version
  • adop phase=fs_clone
    • make sure it gets sync’d to both fs1 and fs2

Done.  That’s it.  10 minutes tops.  Your EBS now pushes 1.7 update 67.
