The following Migration paths to 12.2.1 are supported. This includes opening an existing project (built with an earlier version of JDeveloper) with 12.2.1. When opening the project in 12.2.1, you will be notified of any undoable changes that may be made during migration. It's always recommended to make a back-up copy of your projects before migrating, as JDeveloper does not provide any backward-migration support in the event you decide to stay on an early version. Migration support also entails being able to migrate your JDeveloper settings from one release to another. This can be done as part of the initial startup sequence the first time you run JDeveloper 12.2.1, or later by using the jdev -migrate flag.
|10.x||Not Supported||Not Supported||Not Supported|
|184.108.40.206||Not Supported||Not Supported||Supported|
The supported migration paths to 12.2.1 are from the latest versions of 11g Release 1 (220.127.116.11.0 or 18.104.22.168.0) or 12c (22.214.171.124.0 or 126.96.36.199.0) If you are currently not on the latest version of 11g Release 1 or 12c, you should migrate your application to one of those releases before migrating to 12.2.1.
