Oracle Database Upgrade Patches
All Versions
 
<RANT>
I am just worn out trying to be supportive of the ridiculous lack of competence that has come to be known as the Patches and Updates page of the Oracle Support Services, "My Oracle Support" website (formerly known as Metalink). Rather than driving a few miles and hiring someone from Apple that knows how to build a decent user interface they seem to have gone head-hunting in Redmond, Washington.

For years many of us have pointed out to the people that are the public face of OSS how they could make their website usable. And both we the customers, and those well meaning public facing folks at Oracle, have been totally ignored by the people that design and administer the site. So, rather than doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result, I am going to do what I know works. I am going to do it myself.

This page will provide the patch numbers, as I discover them, that allow us to move to currently supported and terminal release version of the Oracle Database so that we can spend our time doing our jobs rather than fantasizing about what we would do if we could get our hands on a couple of nameless middle managers: People who appear to think a search for "database patches" should be translated into a rough equivalent of searching for ampersand ("&") at Google.

If you agree with me that the Metalink website is brain-dead please send an email and I will forward it to someone special in the 500 building.

Screen Shots
Thank you HJL and TLH

There have been a lot of positive responses to my Tweet about this page and help in putting it together. This screen shots that may help you navigate the nightmare.

Obviously screen shots being a new technology are unavailable to the coders at MOS who are still knocking back beers congratulating themselves on making the world's slowest Flash application. Why use your own superior in-house technology when you can buy from a competitor?

You will note this is the "Advanced Search" page ... The so-called "Basic Search" being "Basically Useless."

Perhaps I am being unkind. They should rename it to "Total Search" as it is totally useless.
If URL length can be considered an inverse measurement of page quality ... here is the URL that corresponds to the search image (right):
