Re: Oracle Home naming (and out-of-place patching)

We changed the naming conversion slightly to something like
...../oracle/product/rdbms_112021_rel1 ...../oracle/product/cman_112022_rely ...../oracle/product/agent_112030_relb
ht's a prefix which defines it's general purpose, 6 digits for the version down to the PSU and a postfix. based on this full name we identify the O_H down to all one-off patches we apply.
maybe this also applies to your needs.
