For a long time now I’ve wanted to start a blog series outlining the not-so-obvious things that have changed in the new Oracle E-Business Suite R12.2. Here comes the new “Did You Know” series specifically for Oracle E-Business Suite! Lets start this series with Apache, aka Oracle HTTP Server.
People are already aware that OHS10g/OC4J is replaced with OHS11g/Weblogic in R12.2.X. On the surface it looks like a simple change, but a lot changed under the hood. In Oracle EBS 11i/R12.1, one could change apache port, but just updating the Context XML file and running autoconfig.
In R12.2, we have to change OHS stuff like web port by logging into the EM console url and then running $AD_TOP/bin/adSyncContext.pl script to sync OHS config parameters to the Context XML file. This script is only needed for OHS config for now. Any changes for Weblogic als need to be done in weblogic console url, not in Context XML file. But these changes in weblogic console are automatically propagated to xml file by the adRegisterWLSListeners.pl script.
You can get more details of the procedures by reviewing the MOS notes below.
