Database Certification

Most common questions asked about database certification:
1. Whats the next patchset level
2. When is the next release
3. When will the next release for OS. etc

Answer to all these questions lies in a metalink(now Oracle Support Portal) document 161818.1 Oracle Server (RDBMS) Releases Support Status Summary which is published external so anybody who has access to Oracle Support Portal can access this.

This document talks about Current Patchset for each version of Oracle database and the next inline for release. This document also contains information about extended maintenance support(EMS).

Document 161818.1 points to Document 742060.1 Release Schedule of Current Database Releases, which contains information about release schedule for current releases be it patchset or a version release.
