During a recent project installing Oracle BI Applications, I became much better acquainted with OPatch, Oracle’s standard tool for managing application patches. By acquainted, I mean how to troubleshoot when OPatch patching fails. Since, at last count, there are around 50 patches total for Oracle BI Applications 188.8.131.52.2, the first patching attempt may not apply all patches successfully. There are any number of reasons for a failure, like an extra slash at the end of a path, a misspelled word, Weblogic or NodeManager still running, or some other reason.

Integration Cloud Service (ICS) is an Oracle offering for a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) to implement message-driven integration scenarios. This article will introduce into the use of ICS for integrating an on-premise E-Business Suite (EBS) instance via Database Adapter. While EBS in recent releases offers a broad set of integration features like SOAP and REST support (i.e. via Integrated SOA Gateway), these interfaces are not available in older versions like 11.5.x.
