Ensure that you shut down all the services running from the Oracle home.
For a Non Oracle RAC environment, shut down all databases and listeners associated with the Oracle home that you are updating.

For an Oracle RAC environment, shut down all the services (database) running from the Oracle home on all the nodes you want to patch. After all nodes are patched, start all services. OPatch is used on only one node at a time.

Applying Patch

Set your current directory to the directory where the patch is located and then run the OPatch utility.

Solution:

 

Move the jox.o file from the $ORACLE_HOME/javavm/admin directory.

[oracle@exadb01 22674697]$ ls -ltr $ORACLE_HOME/javavm/admin/jox.o
-rwxrwxrwx 1 oracle oinstall 1564176 Mar 17 2016 /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0.4/dbhome_1/javavm/admin/jox.o
