This document contains these topics:

Known Issues

The following known issue exists in Oracle R Enterprise 1.4:

BUG 18373587 - Oracle R Enterprise 1.4 upgrade fails to update R_HOME for embedded R

The Oracle R Enterprise 1.4 upgrade process does not update the value of R_HOME in sys.rq_config.

Problem Description

Embedded R uses the value of R_HOME specified in sys.rq_config to determine the location of R. When you upgrade to Oracle R Enterprise 1.4, the value of R_HOME is not updated. This only presents a problem if R home is not the same as it was for the earlier release of Oracle R Enterprise.

In most cases, you will not encounter this problem on Linux systems since R is installed in /usr/lib64/R/library by default on Linux..

Workaround

Update the value of R_HOME in the sys.rq_config table as follows:

sqlplus / as sysdba
EXEC sys.rqconfigset('R_HOME', 'new_path')

About Oracle R Distribution 3.0.1

R 3.0.1 is required for Oracle R Enterprise 1.4. Oracle recommends that you use Oracle R Distribution whenever possible. Oracle R Distribution 3.0.1 is supported on all platforms including 64-bit Windows.

If you intend to use open source R, refer to "Open Source R for Oracle R Enterprise" in Oracle R Enterprise Installation and Administration Guide for instructions.

About Oracle R Enterprise 1.4 and Oracle Database

Oracle R Enterprise 1.4 supports Oracle Database 11.2 and 12.1. However, Oracle Database 11.2 ships with Oracle R Enterprise 1.3.1, and Oracle Database 12.1 ships with Oracle R Enterprise 1.2. If you are using an earlier release of Oracle R Enterprise, you should upgrade to release 1.4.

Refer to:

"Upgrading Oracle R Enterpise" in Oracle R Enterprise Installation and Administration Guide for upgrade instructions.

Note:

Oracle R Enterprise does not currently support the multitenant container database (CDB) feature of Oracle Database 12c.

Oracle R Enterprise Supporting Packages

Oracle R Enterprise requires several open source R packages. In earlier releases of Oracle R Enterprise, these packages were called "client supporting" packages. In Oracle R Enterprise 1.4, these packages are simply called "supporting packages."

In Oracle R Enterprise 1.4, the supporting packages are:

ROracle 1.1-11
DBI 0.2-7
png 0.1-7
cairo 1.5-2
