Applied July Patch Sets To Test Databases

I applied the current July patch sets to a 11.2 and a 12.1 test database.  Now I have a 11.2.0.4.7 and a 12.1.0.2.4 test database.  It is helpful to have test databases that are on the most current patch sets and releases.  If I see unexpected behavior on some other database I can try the same thing on the patched test databases to see if some patch changed the behavior to what I expect.  Also, our production databases are all on 11.2.0.4 or earlier releases so I can check whether the new fully patched 12.1 release has different behavior than our older systems.

Here are the patch numbers:

6880880 – current version of opatch

20760982 – 11.2.0.4.7

20831110 – 12.1.0.2.4

My test environments are on x86-64 Linux.
