It is a good practice to shut down all the application services , so better to stop all the services

$ adapcctl.sh stop (Only Apache )
$adstpall.sh <apps_user>/<apps_pwd> (All the services)
8.Apply the Patch Driver
Run the txkSetPlugin.sh script from the <patch_top>/<interop_patch_number>/fnd/bin/ directory, against the web node of your middle tier, where <patch_top> is the directory in which you unzipped this patch
For example :-
[oarm uss01 RP1] $ ls -l
-rw-r–r– 1 oarm dba 649 Oct 3 10:42 L375026.log
-rwxr-xr-x 1 oarm dba 15843 Jan 1 2002 txkSetPlugin.cmd
-rwxr-xr-x 1 oarm dba 20409 Jan 1 2002 txkSetPlugin.sh
