            as per the oracle documentation... if a patch has been applied, all the bugs fixed by that patch could reappear after another patch is applied. This is called a conflict situation. OPatch detects such situations and raises an error when a it detects a conflict.

            OPatch can detect the following types of conflicts:

            Bug Superset
            Subset
            Duplicate
            Bug Conflict
            File Conflict
            Combination Conflict...etc

            please check below link for more info.
