Latest DSTv22 Timezone Patches Available for E-Business Suite 12
Latest announcement from Oracle ATG group through blog of Steven Chan
If your E-Business Suite Release 12.0 or 12.1 environment is configured to
support Daylight Saving Time (DST) or international time zones, it's important
to keep your timezone definition files up-to-date. They were last changed in
July 2013 and released as DSTv20.

DSTv22 is now available and certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release
12.0 and 12.1. The DSTv22 update includes the timezone information from the IANA
tzdata 2014c and is cumulative: it includes all previous Oracle DST updates.

This update also includes new DST timezone definitions for Egypt for May and
August 2014.

Is Your Apps Environment Affected?

When a country or region
changes DST rules or their time zone definitions, your Oracle E-Business Suite
environment will require patching if:

  • Your Oracle E-Business Suite environment is located in the affected country
    or region OR
  • Your Oracle E-Business Suite environment is located outside the affected
    country or region but you conduct business or have customers or suppliers in the
    affected country or region
The latest DSTv22 timezone definition file is cumulative and includes all DST
changes released in earlier time zone definition files. DSTv22 includes changes
to the following timezones since the DSTv20 release:
  • Africa/Cairo,
  • Africa/Tripoli,
  • Africa/Casablanca,
  • Africa/El_Aaiun,
  • America/Havana,
  • America/Araguaina,
  • America/Porto_Acre,
  • America/Eirunepe,
  • Asia/Jerusalem,
  • Asia/Amman,
  • Asia/Gaza,
  • Asia/Hebron,
  • Europe/Istanbul,
  • Europe/Kiev,
  • Europe/Simferopol,
  • Pacific/Fiji,
  • Egypt,
  • Libya,
  • Cuba,
  • Brazil/Acre,
  • Asia/Tel_Aviv,
  • Turkey,
  • America/Rio_Branco,
  • Israel,
  • Asia/Istanbul
What Patches Are Required?

In case you haven't been following
our previous time zone or Daylight Saving Time (DST)-related articles,
international timezone definitions for E-Business Suite environments are
captured in a series of patches for the database and application tier servers in
your environment. The actual scope and number of patches that need to be applied
depend on whether you've applied previous DST or timezone-related patches. Some
sysadmins have remarked to me that it generally takes more time to read the
various timezone documents than it takes to apply these patches, but your
mileage may vary.

We've published the following Notes which identify the
various components in your E-Business Suite environment that may need DST
