I have completed the necessary changes to PCA to make it work with the
testing service of "getupdates.oracle.com". The current development
release (20101119-01) includes these changes:
* Use correct URLs when sshost is set to getupdates.oracle.com
* Include and use VeriSign certificate for HTTPS downloads from Oracle
* Disable JAR downloads when using Oracle server
* Use standard wget authentication options with Oracle
It can download the patchdiag.xref, the sample patches and the patch
READMEs from the new patch download service by setting the "sshost"
option to "getupdates.oracle.com". The "user" and "passwd" options must
be set to the "My Oracle Service"-Account as well.
Of course this is for testing only, and not for production: The new
patch download service on getupdates.oracle.com is available for testing
only, and does not provide all patches!
As soon as the service goes into production (planned for Dec 10th), a
new stable release of PCA will be published which will use
"getupdates.oracle.com" by default. Let's hope for a flawless transition!
