The patch for this release will be SCA's. Deploy the sca's directly using JSPM.
From WebDynpro perspective, we recommend you to apply both SAPJTECHF.sca and SAPJTECHS.sca. So if any one of the archive is not mentioned in the 'SP Patch Level' tab, it is recommended to apply the same which is available in the service market place.
Due to the fact that many of the SDAs included in the SCA are offline deployment, the engine is restarted during the deployment. An update is only required on the engine.
The required time depends on whether the engine has to be restarted. In addition, the time required for the restart is determined by the applications installed on the engine.
