F Viewing Release Numbers

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

It appendix contains the following sections:

F.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 F-1.

Figure F-1 Example of an Oracle Fusion Middleware Release Number

Example of an Oracle Release Number
Description of "Figure F-1 Example of an Oracle Fusion Middleware Release Number"

In Figure F-1, each digit is labeled:

  • Major Oracle platform number

    This is the most general identifier. It represents a major new edition (or version) of an application, such as Oracle database server or Oracle Fusion Middleware, and indicates that the release contains significant new functionality.

  • Database maintenance release number

    This digit represents a maintenance release level. Some new features may also be included.

  • Oracle Fusion Middleware release number

    This digit reflects the release level of Oracle Fusion Middleware.

  • Component-specific release number

    This digit identifies a release level specific to a component. Different components can have different numbers in this position depending upon, for example, component patch sets or interim releases.

  • Platform-specific release number

    This digit identifies a platform-specific release.

F.2 Viewing the Software Inventory and Release Numbers

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

F.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
Oracle Interim Patch Installer version 13.1.0.0.0
Copyright (c) 2013, Oracle Corporation.  All rights reserved.
 
 
Oracle Home       : /scratch/oracle1/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_Home
Central Inventory : /scratch/oracle1/oraInventory
   from           : /scratch/oracle1/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_Home/oraInst.loc
OPatch version    : 13.1.0.0.0
OUI version       : 13.1.0.0.0
Log file location : /scratch/oracle1/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_Home/cfgtoollogs/opatch/opatch2013-06-07_08-24-23AM_1.log
 
 
OPatch detects the Middleware Home as "/scratch/oracle1/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_Home"

Lsinventory Output file location : /scratch/oracle1/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_Home/cfgtoollogs/opatch/lsinv/lsinventory2013-06-07_08-24-23AM.txt
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

F.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 $ORACLE_HOME/wlserver/.product.properties | grep WLS_PRODUCT_VERSION
(Windows) type %0RACLE_HOME%\wlserver\.product.properties | findstr WLS_PRODUCT_VERSION

For example, on UNIX:

cat $ORACLE_HOME/wlserver/.product.properties | grep WLS_PRODUCT_VERSION
WLS_PRODUCT_VERSION=10.3.6.0

F.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
    

F.2.4 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

F.2.5 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_NAME                     VERSION
-------------------- ----------------------------- --------------------
Audit Service                 12.1.2.0.0
Audit Servicei Append         12.1.2.0.0 
Audit Service Viewer          12.1.2.0.0
Metadata Services             12.1.2.0.0
