Oracle Database 19c (19.3) Now Certified With EBS 12.1.3

 

 

Oracle Database 19.3 is now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3 on-premises. As an Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.3 on-premises customer, you may now start planning your upgrade to Oracle Database 19c.

                                                      

Database support implications may also be reviewed in this database patching and support article.  The latest support information for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1 and Release 12.2 with Database 12.1.0.2 or Database 11.2.0.4 may be reviewed in this extended support article.

What’s New for EBS with Oracle Database 19c

There are several mandatory architecture updates when you upgrade your Oracle E-Business Suite database to Oracle Database 19c.  The following is a summary of the key required architectural changes:

Container Database (CDB) Architecture

With the Database 19c certification EBS 12.1 on-premises databases are now certified with the CDB architecture (multitenant architecture).

As part of the upgrade to Database 19c, you will convert your EBS database to the CDB architecture with a single pluggable database (PDB). The steps required to perform the conversion to the CDB architecture are provided in the following document:

It is important for you to pay particular attention to the following points:

  • A CDB with one PDB (single tenant) is currently the only certified deployment for Oracle E-Business Suite with Database 19c.
  • A CDB with multiple PDBs (multitenant) is not currently certified for Oracle E-Business Suite.
  • A non-CDB architecture is not planned to be certified or supported for EBS with Database 19c.

PL/SQL File Input/Output Directories

With Database 19c, the UTL_FILE_DIR database initialization parameter has been desupported. As part of the upgrade to Database 19c, you must migrate all UTL_FILE_DIR database initialization parameters to database directory objects.  EBS development has created a utility to migrate and manage your defined PL/SQL file input/output directories. For more information, refer to the following document:
