I learnt that 9.1 FP2 comes with MP8.Does it mean after installation is complete i dont have to apply anything upto MP8 as it would already be applied?

My second question is how will be patch MP9 onwards?Will it be a normal process as we do for any MP now or will i have to wait for next feature Pack?

Finally we are going to perform an application upgrade on an 8.9/8.48 instance.The required for UpgradePatches for FSCM 9.1FP2 is 90 in number.Do i have to apply all of 90 ?What is a faster way to do it?Is CA the only way?What can i do in CA to make it faster?Sorry for mutiple questions.

    That is correct, the revision recut is delivered at MP8, which mean all patches and bundles (delivered up to 16) are preinstalled. I'm guessing you mean FSCM.

    You can wait for the next FP, but there is no planned delivery for Feature packs. To stay current you could install 9.1 FP2, install MP9 delta and MP10 delta. This will bring your environment up to bundle 20. Recently bundle 23 has been released. You could download in apply bundles 21, 22 and 23 including the pre and post requisites. This will bring your new environment fully up to date will all patches.

    CA is the most easiest and fastest way to apply patches. You should definitely use the CA to apply all your patches. CA will apply patches in the correct order and won't install patches if you are missing pre or post requisite patches. I know the current way of finding and downloading patches has been changed with patches being migrated to Oracle Support and the PeopleSoft patch download site being brought down. It will take you some more time to find and download all patches, but trust me, it is worth investing some time into this, this will save you a lot of headache later on.

    You may also wait for the 9.2 application which should come soon (pre-release notes already available).
    Originally the Feature Packs were planned to be released every year within along the new Peopletools version. However, this year is also the year of a new application version, so I doubt there'll be a new FP very soon, but we never know, and Oracle is reluctant to give definite date.
    So, it's all depend of your schedule.
    More over, a feature pack is nothing but a pack including all for those started from scratch, you can obtain the same level of application by applying all the MPs on your current environment, of course FPs are much painless than MPs...
