                Applying the Latest Patch to Oracle WebCenter is same as applying a patch to obiee which means upgrading it from to
                is both same.

                        Hi Srini,

                        Thanks for the response, But the link which i provided explained with pictures, so just wanted to make sure, if that is correct, I can follow that. as it is clearly shown with pictures.

                        but from the links you have provided in your first response, i made these points, but I dont think these are clear.

                        This is where we install the new version of a product in a new Middelware Homw ,and migrate all the metadata from the old installation to the new one. This has the virtue of simplicity, but if the current installation is heavily customized and have got lots of analyses, LDAP users ... ,Then it is preferable to upgrade current installation "in-place".
                        Because of the move to integrate OBIEE closer into Oracle Fusion Middleware ,the in-place upgrade process is actually a bit complex,and in Fusion Middleware terms is reffered to as "Applying the latest Oracle Fussion Middleware patchset.
                        Note:- We need to make sure ,we BACK-UP the existing system before attempting n upgrade.
