- Log in to the APPL_TOP environment (source the environment file)
- Create appsutil.zip file

The AutoConfig Build Context utility has been revived and re-introduced in Oracle E-Business Suite R12 for the database tier. It is essential for enabling AutoConfig on the database tier and this utility facilitates and simplifies database upgrades and cross platform migration.
The adbldxml Utility is only supported on the Database - Tier, not on the Applications - Tier in Release12!
In case if the utility is invoked from Applications Tier, you will get error message similar to
Incorrect environment file sourced. Unset apps environment and source RDBMS oracle home environment file.
Invoke adbldxml.pl from Database Tier only. A new context file on the database tier can be created using the following command :
perl $ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/bin/adbldxml.pl template=[contextfile_template] out=[contextfile_name]
Where [contextfile_template] is the location of the context template (default is $ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/template/adxdbctx.tmp) and [contextfile_name] is the absolute Path of the context file to be generated (the default is $ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/[context_name].xml).
Generating a new Context file on the Applications - Tier :
run the adclonectx.pl script from.
To retrieve the applications tier context file ( if it is lost or deleted accidentally) , execute the following command on the applications tier :
perl [COMMON_TOP]/clone/bin/adclonectx.pl retrieve
