Taking backups during development, testing, or upgrades
The process of upgrading an Oracle E-Business Suites (EBS) system is one requiring dozens or hundreds of steps. Think of it like rock climbing. Each handhold or foothold is analogous to one of the steps in the upgrade.
What happens if you miss a handhold or foothold?
If you are close to the ground, then the fall isn’t dangerous. You dust yourself off, take a deep breath, and then you just start climbing again.
But what happens if you’re 25 or 35 feet off the ground? Or higher?
