I know of some E-Business Suite admins who apply patches in hotpatch mode almost all the time.It depends on the patch, and what it is doing. If the patch does not require relinking and just deliver a report or sql files or data fixes then it is safe to apply the patch using hotpatch in production.
I don't think we should.
Is it safe to apply patch in hotpatch mode all the time in production?
Hi! The link to the old thread doesn't work. I know the weakness of hotpatch is that it won't copy new files if the target file is opened (ex: a form). If this happens, the information is placed on the lgi file.
In 12.1.3, will adpatch throw an error if a file is not copied? Or is it sill placed as a FYI on the lgi file?
