  1. I have a query: If the versions are:
    Oracle Application Server 10g 10.1.3.0.0
    Patch of Oracle Application Server 10g 10.1.3.4.0
    Oracle Application Server 10g 10.1.2.0.2
    Patch of Oracle Application Server 10g 10.1.2.3.0

    Do we have to upgrade to 10g Release 3 (10.1.3) Patch Set 5 (10.1.3.5.0) ?
