Many companies releases product for the customers. Not all products will be perfect without bugs. There may be some bugs which are critical in their function and needs to be fixed to the software. After fixing the bugs in the software with regression testing, the company releases patches to the customer which needs to be installed in the software in order to incorporate those bugs or fixes. Currently Oracle has a tool called OPatch to install the bugs or fixes in the software which should be done manually consuming sufficient time. In today’s era, time is very important in the human life. Hence, we have implemented and presented an automated tool to install the patches in the software to save the precious time and also reduce the error while installing the patches. The implementation results have demonstrated this achievement.
