EBS R12 -- SHA 2 certificates are supported with EBS 12.1.3

It seems using SHA2 certificates in EBS 12.1.3 SSL implemetation projects is now certified and supported.
It wasn't in the past, so I find it useful to share it with you..

Earlier;

EBS , even the latest version EBS 12.2 does not support SHA2 certificates.
Oracle states this as follows;
Ref : Oracle Support
"At the present, there is no Oracle solution to this problem. An internal Bug 8839166- support for sha2 at ssl level has been raised.
For Fusion Middleware 11g, the future plans are that these algorithms will be supported when a release of FMW is released that incorporated
11.2.0.3 Required Support Files or higher."
Now;

SHA-2 signed PKI certificates are now certified for inbound connections to the Oracle HTTP Server (OHS) delivered with Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.3.

There also ofcourse some requirements. Using SHA2 certificates requires ;

Application Tier OPATCH to be at least 1.0.0.0.63IAS ORACLE HOME to be 10.1.3.5
October CPU to be applied  on IAS ORACLE HOME

Check Steven Chan's Oracle blog for details and directions for the implementation documents.
