Patch SOA/BPM VM to WebCenter 11.1.1.8 by The Cattle Crew

 

clip_image002At OTN you can find the latest 11g SOA/BPM Virtual Machine (VM) which also contains Webcenter. Unfortunately, Webcenter has been added in version 11.1.1.7 to that VM; as there are major enhancements in Webcenter 11.1.1.8 it generally makes sense to upgrade the VM to that version.

At the Oracle website a documentation for upgrading from 11.1.1.7 to 11.1.1.8 can be found. In this post I want to describe which steps of the update guide I actually executed in order to upgrade my VM and which ones I skipped as they seem to be optional.

The particular steps are also described in full detail here.

Pre-Patching Tasks

I skipped all pre-patching tasks, as we’re starting with a VM that does not contain any data so far and which already contains an up to date Weblogic installation. Read the complete article here.
