11.2.0.2 Database Online Mode patching

I've read on a few blogs, such as Pythians, about the new online mode patching for 11.2.0.2.   However, up until this point I have not seen any applicable patches.     Currently i'm in the process of putting together a patch analysis for the Grid Control Application Management Pack.    As part of the pre-reqs for an R12 environment I have to apply a number of database patches.

Two of the patches 10160615 and 12400751 are able to be applied in Online Mode.   Its too bad 2 other patches can't be..  Regardless its nice to see that some patches are now able to be applied while the system is up.

For more information on Online Mode (Hot Patching) take a look at Metalink note:
