This Readme is relevant only to the delivered Oracle Database 12c Release 2 (12.2) product and its integral parts, such as SQL, PL/SQL, the Oracle Call Interface (OCI), SQL*Loader, Import/Export utilities, and so on.

This Readme documents differences between the server and its integral parts and its documented functionality, as well as known problems and workarounds.

Operating system releases, such as Linux, UNIX, and Windows, often provide Readme documents that are specific to that operating system. Additional Readme files may also exist. This Readme is provided instead of system bulletins or similar publications.
