Unfortunately, outside of the basic Solaris operating system, Oracle does not make it easy to work on a project like this.  I am not inclined to purchase premium support for my lab.  While in class, the instructor said there was a little known Oracle program that allows home users to obtain patches at a more affordable rate.  He said he would email me the details and when he does, I will include the information here.

In the meantime, since I have an active My Oracle Support contract through my employer, I will obtain patches through it.

These links only work if you have a valid My Oracle Support account, and have a support identifier contract associated with the account.
