WebCenter Patch and Hotfix Round-up

I’m tempted to put Oracle’s support center (support.oracle.com) on my Wall of Shame. It really is ridiculous. It’s slow, buggy, Flash-based, un-indexable by major search engines, unorganized, and overwhelming because it includes ALL Oracle products without any way to filter on only the ones you want.

But today I’m in a good mood, and am going to be a “glass-is-half-full” kind of guy. If you can get past the ridiculousness, there is a lot of good information up there. In particular, if you know how and where to look, there are a bunch of patches and hotfixes that you may not even know exist.

So first, to find hotfixes, log in to http://support.oracle.com/, then click “Patches and Upgrades” (or you can search by Patch IDs, listed below). Next, click “Product or Family (Advanced Search)” in the “Patch Search” portlet. Start typing WebCenter and you’ll get a list of WCI products to click on:

Choose a product, then pick a release and OS, and you’ll get a decent list of patches:

Because of the whole Flash thing, you can’t just Google these things, which is personally my biggest complaint. And you have to use this kludgy interface to go through each product one at a time. So after the break, I’ve compiled a handy list of the latest WebCenter Interaction 10gR3 patches that you might not be aware of. Happy patching!

6.5.0 8634578 TEST PUBLISHING TARGET MISSES OUT ‘/’

 

UPDATE 4/18/2010:  Notice it’s kind of odd that the portal and Collaboration have the actual 10.3.0.1 patches listed, but Analytics doesn’t?  Odd, right?  Well, if you want the Analytics 10.3.0.1 installer, you’ve got to get it from http://edelivery.oracle.com/:

 
Even odder, ONLY the Analytics 10.3.0.1 patch is available on Oracle’s e-delivery site; every other patch has to be downloaded via
http://support.oracle.com/.  Super.
