OPatch failed with error code 39 (oracle.jrf.j2ee)

I was applying patch 13113594 (CPU JAN'12) to Oracle Web Tier home and received below error:
Oracle Interim Patch Installer version

The details are:
Patch 13113594: Required component(s) missing : [ oracle.jrf.j2ee, ]

Recommended actions: This patch requires some components to be installed in the home. Either the Oracle Home doesn't have the components or this patch is not suitable for this Oracle Home.

OPatch failed with error code 39

The problem is evident when I carefully read the patch README. The patch should be applied to $MW_HOME/oracle_common as the JRF component is installed in oracle_common automatically.

So follow readme preinstall instructions which say set ORACLE_HOME to $MW_HOME/oracle_common
