Check EBS Version

This post is very short just to describe how to Check EBS version in case of upgrade :-

Application Release :-

Using Apps User.

SQL> select release_name from apps.fnd_product_groups;



Saturday, January 23, 2016 Hangs after upgrading to EBS R12.2.4 Any idea ?

Let me tell you what is going on here , maybe you have some idea that can help, the scenario like the following :-

I installed Oracle E-business suite on Linux 64bit Operating system version 6.7 without any issue and the EBS version was R12.2.0 and the default database version which is

But i choose to upgrade to EBS R12.2.4 and Oracle database 12c both done without any issues or even small error in the logs , auto config done successfully without any issue as well, the application started without any single error.

But when trying to access to the EBS application Link

I tried to compile the JSP but :-

[oracle@ammebs scripts]$ tail -f /u01/oracle/tbdlamm/fs_ne/EBSapps/log/adop/16/apply_20160114_142741/20518047/log/u20518047.log
enumerating jsps...7829
updating dependency...6473
parsing jsp...6473
writing deplist...7829
initializing compilation:

searching uncompiled...5682 (2253 were stale)
translating and compiling:
searching untranslated...5622 (3369 were stale)
translating jsps... 85% complete: 4800/5622 ETA: 53s
translating jsps...5622/5622 in 7m31s
compiling jsps... 

The Logs shows only this error :-


I increased the apache timeout in the context file for nothing .

When access the EBS Application Link :-

From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1:
10.4.5 404 Not Found

The server has not found anything matching the Request-URI. No indication is given of whether the condition is temporary or permanent.

If the server does not wish to make this information available to the client, the status code 403 (Forbidden) can be used instead. The 410 (Gone) status code SHOULD be used if the server knows, through some internally configurable mechanism, that an old resource is permanently unavailable and has no forwarding address. 
I opened SR and now it's 45  days without any solution !!!!

Any idea

Thank you guys :)

ORA-12054 while trying to create materialized view with sysdate

while trying to configure materialized view with sysdate today , Fast Refresh on commit , i received the following error :-

ORA-12054: cannot set the ON COMMIT refresh attribute for the materialized view.

Regarding to Oracle Documentation there is some restriction should be considered while trying to create materialized view Check Here  or here.

But there is always workaround,

1- i create dummy table contain 1 row with 1 column only contains sysdate.
2- create Job that this sysdata on daily basis.
3- call this column in where condition of materialized view.

Problem solved.
