1.4 Expected Maintenance

This section contains the following:

1.4.1 Maintaining OPMN, Oracle HTTP Server, Fusion Middleware Control, OWSM and WebLogic Server

This release includes Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.5) products. Oracle Process Management Notification (OPMN), Oracle HTTP Server, Fusion Middleware Control, and Oracle Web Services Manager (OWSM) are included in this release. These and any others installed within the Middleware home (including WebLogic Server 10.3.5) may be updated with any patch meant for these components (for example, a one-off patch applied via OPatch for OHS 11.1.1.5, or the WLS PSU 10.3.5.0.2). Please be advised that some component versions may differ. At any time to determine the component versions installed in your environment, you can print a report using the following command from the ORACLE_HOME/OPatch directory:

opatch lsinventory -detail

1.4.2 Maintaining Oracle Client, JDBC and Networking

Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g is installed with Oracle Client Networking libraries equivalent to an 11.1.0.7 version. This includes libraries required for SSL processing and JDBC drivers where the included libraries will support connections to all certified Oracle Database Server versions.

There are specific cases where you might be instructed to apply an Oracle Database one-off patch to an existing Oracle Fusion Middleware Oracle home. This is because some Oracle Fusion Middleware products include specialized components, such as application programming interfaces (APIs), software libraries, and other software code developed for Oracle Database products. 11.1.0.7 Database one-off patches (bundled patches on Windows) may be applied to the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g (11.1.2.x) homes.

Note that in most cases Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g patches include all necessary software updates. You should apply Database one-off patches only when specifically instructed or if you are experiencing a specific issue that can be resolved by the Database patch.
