Critical Patch Update for E Business Suite - July 2014 is released

From

https://blogs.oracle.com/stevenChan/entry/critical_patch_update_for_july4

  1. Make a list of all the Oracle E-Business Suite homes on your system, together with their associated Oracle products and full versions.
  2. Identify the CPU patches needed for each Oracle product. Depending on your configuration, you may need to apply multiple Oracle Database and Oracle Fusion Middleware patches.
  3. Set the environment to point to the relevant Oracle home or product before applying a patch.
  4. Shut down all processes running from an Oracle home before patching the products there.
  5. Apply patches to one Oracle product at a time, then move on to the next Oracle product.
  6. Patch the database tier before the application (middle) tier. This is to ensure the database post-installation scripts have been run before application tier services are restarted.
  7. Patch your system in the following order:
    1. Any separate or remote Oracle Fusion Middleware or Oracle HTTP Server Database home, including a separate Metadata Repository home.
    2. Oracle E-Business Suite Database home.
    3. Oracle Identity Management and infrastructure homes.
    4. Oracle Fusion Middleware application tier home.
    5. Oracle E-Business Suite applications.
  8. Ensure that each product is patched completely before continuing to the next.
