well, You see, deploy script has also failed, so only changes to the repository were those let's them name "standard" i.e. those done before deploy script takes an effect. I certainly agree, they should not help us at what we do, but at what the plugin page logic do before even starting deployment.
I mean here some entry to standard SYSMAN tables, where plugin is registered, where deploy and undeploy code is stored, etc and I recognize it as a part of OEM and not a part of our custom operations done in DEPLOY script, which can be anything possible. Anyway I won't argue longer at this point - may be they are right and I am just tired :-)

That is good point and we will move this way - I have searched for a place where deploy and undeploy scripts are stored but unsuccessfully. Now we probably can just improve a scripts directly - many thanks for that tip :-)

Best regards
