Steven Chan - Wed, 2019-03-20 11:33

I am pleased to reintroduce you to Terri Noyes, a highly experienced and versatile member of the Oracle E-Business Suite Technology product management team.

Terri joined Oracle in 1991, and has held a variety of engineering management and cross-functional leadership positions. Terri started her software engineering career at the General Electric R&D Center in Schenectady, New York, and then joined MIT Lincoln Laboratories in Lexington, MA before moving to California for Oracle. She holds an M.S. in Computer Science and Computer Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and a B.S. in Computer Science and Mathematics from the University of Massachusetts.

Terri is currently focused closely on assisting our customers at all stages of their journeys to using EBS on Oracle Cloud. As such, she is one of the key contributors to our sister Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle Cloud blog, writing and editing articles on a regular basis. So if you a reader of that blog, you are already familiar with her work.

Updated EBS R12 Tools Requirements for IBM AIX on Power Systems

Steven Chan - Tue, 2019-03-19 08:48

Beginning on May 3rd 2019, Oracle E-Business Suite application tier patches for Releases 12.2, 12.1, and 12.0 on IBM AIX on Power Systems will be built with version 12.1 of the IBM XL C/C++ compiler, which includes new runtime and utilities packages. Customers who plan to apply patches built after May 3rd 2019 to their Oracle E-Business Suite environment must first ensure they meet all the new requirements.

This change is needed because IBM is discontinuing support of the previous XL compiler (version 11) that was formerly used for building Oracle E-Business Suite12 patches.

We are announcing this change now to give our customers time to prepare for, and be compliant with, all requirements for patches generated after the May 3rd 2019 date.

We recommend you review the following documentation for all new requirements relating to the IBM AIX on Power Systems platform:

Support for Mixed Platforms in EBS 12.2

Steven Chan - Fri, 2019-03-08 08:40

The Oracle E-Business Suite architecture comprises a client tier, an application tier with one or more nodes, and a database tier with one or more nodes. The different tiers can run on various hardware and operating systems, together often referred to as the platform.

Many customers standardize on a single platform for both the application and database tiers. This has the advantage that they only need to follow maintenance guidelines from a single vendor.

However, some customers choose to deploy the EBS application and database tiers on different platforms. This deployment is referred to as mixed platforms or database tier only platform or split tier configuration. There can be various reasons for doing this, for example to run the Oracle Database on a platform to which the applications code was not ported.

For releases earlier than EBS 12.2, it was also supported to deploy mixed platforms in a multi-node application tier environment. However, it is important to be aware that using different platforms for the application tier is not supported in EBS Release 12.2, where key architectural features need the application code to be common (shared) across all nodes.

Most notably, the use of the adop patching utility in EBS 12.2 is optimized by running patching activities on the primary node, with remote processes triggered on secondary nodes as applicable. This distributed patching mechanism requires all the binaries to run on the same hardware and operating system.

Availability of Multiple EBS Forms Sessions with Java Web Start

Steven Chan - Wed, 2019-03-06 08:10

We are pleased to announce that our solution for using Java Web Start with Oracle E-Business Suite now allows users to open multiple Oracle Forms sessions simultaneously. This extended functionality is a result of extensive collaboration between the EBS, Forms, and Java development teams.

Our initial certification in April 2017 for using Java Web Start with Oracle E-Business Suite employed a single instance of Oracle Forms on a user's desktop. Subsequent requests to open any Oracle Forms based module were always routed to the already running Oracle Forms application. As such, it was not possible to open multiple instances of Oracle Forms in EBS side-by-side.

With this update, you can now perform important business tasks more productively using Java Web Start, in a similar way to what was previously possible with the JRE Plug-in.

My Oracle Support Note 2188898.1, Using Java Web Start with Oracle E-Business Suite, explains how you can migrate your  Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 or 12.1 environments to use Java Web Start. If you have already performed such a migration, the same note lists requirements for using this feature.

Additional Improvements

When running multiple Oracle Forms sessions with Java Web Start, you are now also able to:

  • Launch multiple Oracle Forms based modules from a single browser session.  To open multiple Oracle Forms sessions, you no longer need to start multiple browser sessions as was required when using the Java Plug-in. With Java Web Start, you specify a preference on the General Preferences page to open multiple Oracle Forms sessions. 
  • Log in only once when working with multiple Oracle Forms sessions. Since multiple browser sessions are no longer needed, you do not need to log in to Oracle E-Business Suite multiple times. When using the Java Plug-in, users had to launch multiple browser sessions and consequently sign in to EBS multiple times.
  • Use additional browsers. Java Web Start can be used with browsers that do not support the Java Plug-in, and so is certified with more browsers. For a list of browsers certified for use with Oracle E-Business Suite, refer to Recommended Browsers for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 (MOS Note 389422.1).

Oracle JDeveloper Patches Required for Creating OA Extensions in EBS 12.2.8

Steven Chan - Tue, 2019-03-05 08:51

We have recently been asked which Oracle JDeveloper patches are required for use with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2.8. The short answer is that the patches required for Release 12.2.8 are the same as those for Release 12.2.7.

You can learn more by referring to the recently updated master document on this subject, MOS Note 416708.1:

This note also lists the Oracle JDeveloper patches required for 12.2.8, 12.2.7, 12.2.6, 12.2.5, and many other Oracle E-Business Suite releases.

Background

These patches are intended for creating OA Extensions to OA Framework-based pages in Oracle E-Business Suite.

When you create such extensions, you must use the version of Oracle JDeveloper shipped by the Oracle E-Business Suite product development team, which is  specific to the EBS Applications Technology patch level. This means that there is a new version of Oracle JDeveloper with each new release of the EBS Applications Technology patchset.
