Question about SUP patches

Hi all,

I am SAP Basis Architect and I started getting into the Sybase world with Sybase Unwire Platform. I have a couple of questions for the experts.

1. what does EBF stand for?

2. are the EBF cumulative for SUP? can I go a directly install the lastes "EBF 20340: 2.1 SP03 PL01 - 64Bit"? or should I need to apply each of the release patch individually

3. what does ESD stand for?

4. are ESD cumulative for SUP? I can see that there are ESD #2 and ESD #3

5. Is there any documentation that talks about this topic?

Here is what I have available from the SAP Marketplace, how should I proceed?

We are ready to start installing, but we want to have a good understanding like we do in SAP ABAP and JAVA.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Zareh Vazquez

    Hello Zareh,

    EBF = Electronic/Emergency/Engineering Bug Fix & ESD = Electronic Software Delivery.

    ESD#2 and #3 basically are Service Packs (hence the name 2.1 SP03 PL01 in your screenshot) & PL = Patch Level. I believe they are cumulative and include all fixes/changes from previous releases, however, I also believe you need to already be on that major release before applying the ESD, in this case 2.1

    Check out this site which has all the documentation for the Sybase products and check out the release bulletins, they should contain all the info you are looking for:

    Cheers, Paul
