    Re: Patch Docs

    Nikesh,

    I'm not sure I understand what you're looking for.

    Are you requesting information on how to install a patch? If so, there are installation instruction included on Metalink when you download it. Also, once you've installed a patch on a test system, there's a set of instructions (patchnotes.txt) that are available within your OTM installation directory. Also, when installing the patch, it guides you through the processof installation. the most important thing to remember is to ensure that all tiers are patches (web, app, rpt and db) -- otherwise you'll run into issues.

    If you're asking how to create a custom patch for OTM that includes changes that you've made to it -- then that depends highly on what you've changed -- html, css and xsl files; java code; DB changes, etc.

    Please provide us with as much information as possible in your posts, so that we can better help.

    Thanks,
    Chris

        Nikesh,

        In that case, each company handles the distribution of the custom patches differently and there isn't a standardized process. You'll need to look at the customizations that you've made, the files included and determine the best way to package them up for installation -- making it easy for the customer and as straightforward and error-proof as possible. More important than the installation procedure is having complete and proper documentation.

        I created the OTM installer, so I'm comfortable with tools like InstallAnywhere and will often use it for large, complex customizations. Other times, a simple zip or jar file works best.

        Regardless, we utilize an internal source control system to manage versions and changes to the custom code and I highly recommend that you do the same.

          Hi Chris,
          One more query.
          Verison:5.5 CU3

          I know that 'install5x.jar' file is required for patch creation for 5.0 .Is it the same file used for 5.5 CU3 also?

          Also can anyone please let me know from where we can get the install5x.jar file(for version 5.5 CU3),which is needed during creation of patch.Also any other jar file or documentation required for patch creation of the same,if required.
          Also what is the OTM installer you have created.Can you please explain on it.
          Any help will be highly appreciated.

          Regards,
          Nikesh
