    Limitations in Merging Patches

    - AD patches can be merged with other AD patches, but AD patches and non-AD patches cannot be merged
    - can merge any non-AD patch with any other non-AD patch
    - can merge patches with their listed prerequisite patches
    - can merge individual patches with mini-packs and maintenance releases
    - can merge US English patches with national language patches.

    Not related to the AD module , eg : it could be an HR related patch.

    patch merging , my view

    - Older split patches can be merged with unified drivers;
    - Patches can be merged with their prerequisite patches;
    - Patches can ONLY be merged for the same release, platform parallel modes;
    - If the combination of patches you want to merge is not supported, you will receive a
    message;
    - Merged AD Patches must be done separately and applied before a non AD Patch;
    - The admrgpch utility must be run from the directory which contains the "Destination" and
    "Source" directories;
    - NLS patches must be applied (merged or not) after the US patches, however is allowed \
    to merge the US and NLS patches.

    Hi Hemant,

    Thanks For your Quick Reply.

    i am taking an example here :

    i have to apply three patches one is related to AP, Second is related to AR, Third is related to FA. all these three patches having one or two Pre-requisites patches.
    now what patches we can merge with ADMERGE.

    Regards
    Deepak

    We can merge all the AP,AR and the FA patches with their pre req patches as one bundle and apply.

    This means we can merge all the patches together (including the ones of the different modules can be merged - except AD )- AP,AR and the FA patches along with the pre-reqs - can all be merged into one patch
