Is this also applicable in 12.2?
Yes very much.
The Patch Advisor is very good in 12.2 as well. Simply download and install
Follow the below useful documents:

Thanks Vishnu, Kanda and ALL,
I also heard about something like ETC patch checker? is it another tool?
Yes. ETCC is for the recommended patches for the technology stack i.e. Middleware (WebLogic), Database. Mainly for 12.2.
How To Run The 12.2 EBS Technology Code Level Checker (ETCC) ? (Doc ID 2008451.1)
Run it on Application Tier as well as DB Tier. Find patches to be applied and apply them.
Whenever ETCC is updated, download latest patches to check the updates.
To clear up my doubts, ETCC is for 12.2 and can not be used for 12.1?
While patch wizard can be used for both 12.1 and 12.2?
Yes! You are right.
Thanks Vishnu and ALL,
Which is more reliable to run on 12.2? Patch \Wizard or ETCC?
There might be missing patch that each tool can not find? or Do they produce exactly the same output?
The ETCC is for technology stack patches for database, FMW, Forms/Reports only. The patch wizard only reports on EBS (applications) patches.
There are also product support analyzers available.
E-Business Suite Support Analyzer Bundle Menu Tool (Doc ID 1939637.1)
Get Proactive with Oracle E-Business Suite - Product Support Analyzer Index (Doc ID 1545562.1)
Ouch! , why so many tools to use
Why can not Oracle create a single tool so it would not be confusing?
Anyways I will just try all of the above.
