2015-05 - New Patching Features

Oracle 12c introduced a new utility which replaces the need to run post installation SQL scripts after a database patch is applied.

This new utility is called “Datapatch” and it is shipped with 12c binaries as a component of OPatch distribution.

“Datapatch” is very useful in multitenant environments where multiple PDBs (Pluggable Databases) must be patched together.
