Hi Akil Roy,
If merge finds incompatible patches it will inform and discontinue.
As with adop you have the option to give multiple patches, merging may not even required in many cases.
As long as patches are compatible with adop it will merge and apply patches if merge=yes is mentioned
ad merge can still be used with 12.2 as well

Even though you can merge the patches separately from applying them, why would you do that?
I have 5 languages. I can't find the doc, but it said, to apply the US patches first, you can merge them. then the nls patches merged.
I do that sometimes, but usually I list all the patches with merge=y
if you don't say merge=y, it will apply all the patches individually.
adop phase=apply patches=28081279:u28081279.drv, 28081279_PTB:u28081279.drv, 28081279_I:u28081279.drv, 28081279_D:u28081279.drv, 28081279_F:u28081279.drv, 22465795:u22465795.drv, 22465795_F:u22465795.drv, 22465795_I:u22465795.drv, 22465795_PTB:u22465795.drv, 22465795_D:u22465795.drv merge=yes
I've merged enough patches to know it's never failed on incompatible patches and it doesn't care how you list them. it will find equilibrium when it's done.
