G Viewing Release Numbers

This appendix describes how to view Oracle Fusion Middleware release numbers.

This appendix contains the following topics:

G.1 Release Number Format

To understand the release level nomenclature used by Oracle, examine the example of an Oracle Fusion Middleware release number shown in Figure G-1.

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 Opatch. Run the following command:

(UNIX) ORACLE_HOME/Opatch/opatch lsinventory
(Windows) ORACLE_HOME\Opatch\opatch lsinventory

For example, on UNIX:

./opatch lsinventory
Invoking OPatch 11.1.0.8.3
 
Oracle Interim Patch Installer version 11.1.0.8.3
Copyright (c) 2010, Oracle Corporation.  All rights reserved.
 
 
Oracle Home       : /scratch/oracle1/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_SOA1
Central Inventory : /scratch/oracle1/oraInventory
   from           : /etc/oraInst.loc
OPatch version    : 11.1.0.8.3
OUI version       : 11.1.0.9.0
OUI location      : /scratch/oracle1/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_SOA1/oui
Log file location : /scratch/oracle1/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_SOA1/cfgtoollogs/opatch/opatch2011-07-18_13-55-10PM.log
 
Patch history file: /scratch/oracle1/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_SOA1/cfgtoollogs/opatch/opatch_history.txt
 
 
OPatch detects the Middleware Home as "/scratch/oracle1/Oracle/Middleware"
 
Lsinventory Output file location : /scratch/oracle1/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_SOA1/cfgtoollogs/opatch/lsinv/lsinventory2011-07-18_13-55-10PM.txt
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Installed Top-level Products (1): 
 
Oracle SOA Suite 11g                                                 11.1.1.5.0
There are 1 products installed in this Oracle Home.
 
 
There are no Interim patches installed in this Oracle Home.
 
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
OPatch succeeded.

G.2.2 Viewing Oracle WebLogic Server Release Numbers

You can use the following command to view the release number of Oracle WebLogic Server:

(UNIX) cat $MW_HOME/wlserver_10.3/.product.properties | grep WLS_PRODUCT_VERSION
(Windows) type %MW_HOME%\wlserver_10.3\.product.properties | findstr WLS_PRODUCT_VERSION

For example, on UNIX:

cat $MW_HOME/wlserver_10.3/.product.properties | grep WLS_PRODUCT_VERSION
WLS_PRODUCT_VERSION=10.3.6.0

G.2.3 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 by using the following commands:

  • On UNIX:

    cd ORACLE_HOME/inventory
    ls -d Components*/*/*
    
  • On Windows:

    cd ORACLE_HOME/inventory/Componentsn
    dir /S /A:D
    

G.2.4 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.2.5 Viewing Metadata Repository Release Numbers

If you are using an Oracle Database instance for your metadata repository, you can view the release number of the database 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
----------------------------------         --------------  ----------------
NLSRTL                                     11.2.0.1.0      Production
Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition     11.2.0.1.0      Production
PL/SQL                                     11.2.0.1.0      Production
TNS for Linux:                             11.2.0.1.0      Production

G.2.6 Viewing Schema Release Numbers

If you are using an Oracle Database instance for your metadata repository, you can view the release number of the schema using SQL*Plus, as follows:

SQL> COL COMP_ID FORMAT A20
SQL> COL COMP_NAME A30
SQL> COL VERSION FORMAT A20
SQL> SELECT COMP_ID, COMP_NAME, VERSION FROM SCHEMA_VERSION_REGISTRY;
 
COMP_ID              COMP_NAME                     VERSION
-------------------- ----------------------------- --------------------
APM                  Authorization Policy Manager  11.1.1.3.0
 
BAM                  BAM Services                  11.1.1.5.0
 
BIPLATFORM           OracleBI and EPM              11.1.1.4.0
