In Figure G-1, each digit is labeled:

G.2 Viewing the Software Inventory and Release Numbers

The following sections describe how to obtain the release numbers of Oracle Fusion Middleware:

G.2.1 Viewing Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Release Numbers

All Oracle Fusion Middleware installations have a release number. This number is updated when you apply a patch set release or upgrade the installation.

You can view the release number of an Oracle Fusion Middleware installation using Oracle Universal Installer, as follows:

  1. Launch Oracle Universal Installer:

    (UNIX) ORACLE_HOME/oui/bin/runInstaller.sh
    (Windows) ORACLE_HOME\oui\bin\setup.exe
    
  2. Click Installed Products to open the Inventory Page.

  3. In the Inventory Page, expand Oracle Homes. The entries for all installations on your host are displayed.

  4. Expand the Oracle home entry for the installation you are interested in.

  5. An entry with the release number for your original installation, followed by entries for any patch sets that have been applied, are displayed.

G.2.2 Viewing Component Release Numbers

All Oracle Fusion Middleware components have a release number and many contain services that have release numbers. These numbers may be updated when you apply a patch set release or upgrade the installation.

You can view the release number of components and their services in the following ways:

On the File System

You can view component release numbers as follows on UNIX:

cd ORACLE_HOME/inventory
ls -d Components*/*/*

Using Oracle Universal Installer

If you installed Oracle Fusion Middleware using Oracle Universal Installer, you can view component release numbers as follows:

  1. Launch Oracle Universal Installer:

    (UNIX) ORACLE_HOME/oui/bin/runInstaller.sh
    (Windows) ORACLE_HOME\oui\bin\setup.exe
    
  2. Click Installed Products to open the Inventory Page.

  3. In the Inventory Page, expand Oracle Homes. Entries for all installations on your host are displayed.

  4. Expand the Oracle home entry for the installation you are interested in.

  5. An entry with the release number for your original installation, followed by entries for any patch sets that have been applied, are displayed.

  6. Expand the initial entry to view the component release numbers at installation time. If you have subsequent patch set entries, expand them to see the component release numbers updated for each patch set.

G.2.3 Viewing Oracle Internet Directory Release Numbers

Oracle Internet Directory has a server release number, which is the version of the binaries. It also has schema and context versions. All of these numbers correspond to the Oracle Fusion Middleware installation release number through the third digit. These numbers may be updated when you apply a patch set release or upgrade the installation.

Viewing the Oracle Internet Directory Server Release Number

The Oracle Internet Directory server release number is the version of the binaries. You can view the Oracle Internet Directory server release number as follows:

  1. Ensure that the ORACLE_HOME environment variable is set.

  2. Run the following command:

    (UNIX) ORACLE_HOME/bin/oidldapd -version
    (Windows) ORACLE_HOME\bin\oidldapd -version
    

Viewing the Oracle Internet Directory Schema and Context Versions

You can view the Oracle Internet Directory schema and context versions in this file:

(UNIX) ORACLE_HOME/ldap/schema/versions.txt
(Windows) ORACLE_HOME\ldap\schema\versions.txt

The contents of this file are kept up-to-date, however, you can also query the schema and context release from Oracle Internet Directory, just to be sure.

To view the schema version:

  1. Ensure that the ORACLE_HOME environment variable is set.

  2. Run the following command:

    ldapsearch -h oid_host -p oid_port -D "cn=orcladmin" 
     -q -b "cn=base,cn=oracleschemaversion" 
     -s base "objectclass=*" orclproductversion
    

    Because you use the -q option, the command prompts you for your password.

    The output is in this form:

    cn=BASE,cn=OracleSchemaVersion
    orclproductversion=90500
    

To view the context version:

  1. Ensure that the ORACLE_HOME environment variable is set.

  2. Run the following command:

    ldapsearch -h oid_host -p oid_port -D "cn=orcladmin"
     -q -b "cn=oraclecontext" -s base "objectclass=*" orclversion
    

    Because you use the -q option, the command prompts you for your password.

    The output is in this form:

    cn=oraclecontext
    orclversion=101200
    

G.2.4 Viewing Metadata Repository Release Numbers

The Metadata Repository is an Oracle Database database that has a release number. This number is updated when you apply a patch set release or upgrade the database.

You can view the Metadata Repository release number using SQL*Plus as follows (you can be connected to the database as any user to issue these commands):

SQL> COL PRODUCT FORMAT A40
SQL> COL VERSION FORMAT A15
SQL> COL STATUS FORMAT A15
SQL> SELECT * FROM PRODUCT_COMPONENT_VERSION;

PRODUCT                                    VERSION         STATUS
----------------------------------         --------------  ----------------
