      Hi All,

      How can i get to know the different objects(custom/standard) getting affected by the applying patch.
      Is there any simpler(may be simplest) tool or utility for analyzing which i can use to forsee the post-patch effects, before applying the patch to Instance??

      Any pointers to this will be of great help..

      Thanks..

          Hi,

          You can get this from the Patch Impact Analysis report (via OAM), or apply the patch with option apply=no (Test Mode) -- For both 11i/R12 patches.
