APPS - how to apply patch HOT (without enabling maintenance mode)

Use the following option when calling adpatch:

options=hotpatch

EXAMPLE:

adpatch defaultsfile=/u02/app/applmgr/11.5/admin/SIDNAME/def.txt \
logfile=all_5162862.log \
patchtop=/copy/APPS_PATCHES/2006/002/5162862 \
driver=u5162862.drv \
workers=4 \
interactive=yes \
options=novalidate,hotpatch

In the above example we will:
apply patch# 5162862
using u5162862.drv driver
using 4 workers
in interactive mode
without validating pre-reqs
without enabling maintenance mode (hotpatch)

NOTE:
you can safely drop defaultsfile from the call if you don't have one created
