This is to share the results of our recent research on whether and when Oracle database 12.2 will be supported on ODA platform.

 

As of January 6, 2018 the answer is two pronged - if you are lucky enough to have ODA X7-2 then Database 12.2 is already supported and it could be downloaded and deployed with or upgraded to ODA bundle 12.2.1.1.0 as needed.

 

For everybody else, that is for the owners of ODAs X6-2 and older Oracle DB 12.2 is still a thing from the future as there is no ODA bundle at the moment that will bring 12.2 to older ODA hardware.

While the different estimates have being given for it to happen the time frame seems to be February-March, again as the most likely.
