Collection of EBS upgrade information for Oracle Database 19c

But as I’m not an EBS expert, I can only share a Collection of EBS upgrade information for Oracle Database 19c. For all further inquiries, please open an SR or get in touch with your Oracle contact.

I’m happy when I learn something new every day. And today, right before I wanted to turn my computer into “sleep”, I learned something which surprises me a lot.

Plan your upgrade(s)

You can plan your EBS and database upgrades now. I know from discussions at conferences and workshops, that customers felt locked in on older databases releases. As a result, we waived the Extended Support for the database for those who still are on Oracle 11.2.0.4 and 12.1.0.2 as database for an EBS installation.

Please be aware that the certification as of now includes only Linux and SPARC Solaris platforms. …

Too many heap subpools might break the upgrade

Recently one of our new upcoming Oracle Database 11.2 reference customers did upgrade their production database – a huge EBS system from Oracle 9.2.0.8 to Oracle Database 11.2.0.2. They’ve tested very well, we’ve optimized the upgrade process, the recompilation timings etc.

But once the live upgrade was done it did fail in the JAVA component piece with this error:

begin if
initjvmaux.startstep(‘CREATE_JAVA_SYSTEM’) then
*
ORA-29553:
classw in use: SYS.javax/mail/folder
ORA-06512: at “SYS.INITJVMAUX”, line 23
ORA-06512: at line 5
