Forgive me for butting in, but is 220.127.116.11 available? We are on 18.104.22.168 and so far have not noticed any issues other than we had to patch our client software (both admin and desktop) due to some issue that escapes me right now.
I will have to look for 22.214.171.124 if it is available for Discoverer.
If I recall correctly, the last I remember is that Oracle was actually recommending holding at 126.96.36.199, but we are already on 188.8.131.52.
IMPORTANT NEW MESSAGE: I want to update this thread because on my system I was unable to get Discoverer 184.108.40.206 Plus or Viewer to connect to my database. Oracle were able to reproduce this internally so for now I would advise you not to upgrade to 220.127.116.11.
Yes 18.104.22.168 is available. It is available as a Patch from MetaLink. It is not available as a stand-alone install.

I got information back from Oracle that the problem with 22.214.171.124, which uses WebLogic 10.3.6, is the Java version. As part of the install I was advised to download and install the most recent Java Development Kit which at the time was 7.1.4. It turns out that Java 1.7 does not work with WebLogic and so the error was being thrown.
Leaving my installation as is, without removing or reinstalling anyting, I was advised to go and get the Java 1.6 JDK and install that. Once installed I had to make a couple of adjustments to a config file. With this done Discoverer ran perfectly.
So, 126.96.36.199 is ok so long as you use WebLogic 10.3.6 and Java JDK 1.6. I used version 32 but 31 works too.
I also heard that Oracle have a patch for 188.8.131.52 that will allow Java 1.7 to work.
Discoverer 11g is now compatible with JDK 1.7 (server-side) and / or JRE 1.7 plugin (client-side) with Patch 13877486
Oracle has updated or published the following technical notes on MyOracle Support Portal:
Discoverer 11g With Java 1.7 (JDK or JRE) Fails With Exceptions (DocID 1469683.1) How To Find Oracle BI Discoverer 10g and 11g Certification Information(Doc ID 233047.1)
ALERT: Required and Recommended Patch Levels For All Discoverer Versions (Doc ID 237607.1)
The patch is about 40 Mb in size and appears to be a generic patch for all platforms. You will need to apply it on the server using OPatch.
