How often did I launch a search in MyOracle Support (MOS) for a specific Bundle Patch or Patch Set Update. And usually the MOS search results don’t get me what I’m looking for no matter how clever I search. But there was relief. A MOS Note combined all PSUs and BPs and much more into table format including the links. But what if there would be a Download Assistant for RUs, RURs, BPs, PSUs, Patch Sets and Releases?

On Windows you have no choice: pick the newest Bundle Patch in the rightmost column. On all over platforms I’d highly recommend you to pick the Proactive Bundle Patch – and of course the newest one.
In case you need more advice or clarification whether to use PSUs or BPs or RUs or RURs please read here:
PSU or BP? Patch Set Update or Bundle Patch? RUR or RU?
