Locate your patch on http://www.itrc.com and select the patch family browser in the upper right corner, example:
Family Tree for patch PHSS_33278:
notes: s700_800 11.23 aC++ Compiler (A.06.02)
Hope this helps!

> thanks. but for this patch how can i find the superced patch. please advise.
If you go to the Patch Database as suggested:
-> find a specific patch [PHSS_33278]
...you can see that this patch is not only the recommended patch but also the most recent.
Further, if you read about the Patch Family Tree, it notes, that "The root of the tree (the top-most patch) is the latest patch in the patch chain. Its predecessors are shown beneath it, indented to the right with an arrow symbol pointing to the succeeding patch."
The ancestor patch (predecesor) was PHSS_31859 as shown either from the patch notes or the tree.
One of the nice features of the ITRC Patch database is that had you started with PHSS_31859, you would have immediately seen that the more (most) recent patch was PHSS_33278.

At this point be aware that your patch IDs are wrong (PHS- does not exist) but the number portions are all you need.
1. Set release to HP-UX 11.23
2. Put patch numbers into box in step 2
3. Set type to "Search by Patch IDs" in step 2
4. Click the search button
This should bring you to a results page. The "newest" patches in those families will be in the far left column (most recent). I recommend that you consider the middle column which lists the patches that HP recommends.
Only PHSS_32213 has newer patches available. PHSS_32502 is recommended and PHSS_37553 is newest available.

PHSS_33278 11.23 aC++ Compiler (A.06.02)
PHSS_33279 11.23 u2comp/be/plugin library patch
PHSS_33277 11.23 HP C Compiler (A.06.02)
PHSS_32213 11.23 Aries cumulative patch (latest PHSS_37552)
The first 3 are obsoleted by AR. The latest aC++ compiler is A.06.17.
For aC++ compiler versions and patches you should look at:
>JRF: if you read about the Patch Family Tree,
These are typically useless for compilers since the trees are chopped down when a new release is made. Actually we should mark these old patches as "obsoleted by AR".

OK, I thought that these trees were short in stature. As I originally said, simply searching the Patch Database for any patch will show you if it is the most recent or if there is a successor available (albeit perhaps not yet fully aged and road tested in all terrains).

Whenever you are downloading any Patch from ITRC it will show you the latest patch, rating and even you can read the readme of that file.It will also tell you the dependencies of the patch.

If you put a patch in your shopping cart, it will automatically put the dependencies there too.
