We also would like to know the next release date for BDB JE. Would someone please communicate this to us.
We are not permitted to place such information on the forums. If you have ever attended a public Oracle presentation, we put up a SAFE HARBOR statement and the same guidelines for that apply here. If you have a support contract, please reach out to Oracle support and put in a request for a patch. Often times, things like this can be handled via a patch and support can evaluate/assist with that. If you do not have a support contract, I would suggest contacting an Oracle sales representative and have that discussion.
Hope this helps,
