Oracle Database 11gR2 (11.2.0.2) is available on Linux x86-64, x86

Oracle announced to change Oracle Database Patch Sets Starting With 11.2.0.2 [1189783.1].
In past releases, Oracle Database patch sets consisted of a set of files that replaced files in an existing Oracle home. Beginning with Oracle Database 11g Release 2, patch sets are full installations that replace existing installations.

We will find 7 files for download:

If I have 11.1 ..Is there is a option to apply only the patch from the whole set ? or need to do a full installation ?

If you mean patch set 11.2.0.2 #10098816
You have to install full and then upgrade your database.

I tested 11.2.0.1 -> 11.2.0.2. I have to install full as well.

ok. Thanks. I went to through the metalink id you provided too.
I thought that even though they give full installation there may be a option for installaing only patch. :-( .Thanks for your answer.

If you need to patch Grid. You have to install(upgrade) on new Home and run rootupgrade.sh

Step for Upgrading, You can find out from oracle document.
