Applied CPU patch of July 2009

Yeah, I applied it on Solaris 64bit after it just arrived at July 15. See this "Oracle Critical Patch Update Advisory – July 2009".
The whole process is straightforward, but we can still see big difference between CPU patch and Upgrade in those post-installation script executions:

For CPU patch, we have to re-run those scripts if we:
    * Using DBCA (Database Configuration Assistant) to select a sample database (General, Data Warehouse, Transaction Processing)
    * Using a script that was created by DBCA that creates a database from a sample database
    * Cloning a database that was created by either of the two preceding methods.

For upgrade, DBCA is part of upgrade, so only cloning database without applied post-installation scripts need redo actions.
