Viva le Resistance, Viva Mozilla!

Many of us are content to use IE for all our browser needs, but few know that there is an alternative. Mozilla Firefox is a open-source browser that some ten percent of the web uses, and which has been certified for use with Oracle EBS 11i.

I have been using Firefox for just more then a year, it is a very stable and well tested product that can be installed and immediately used as your main browser. There is also a number of plugin’s and extensions, Eddie Awad created a very useful plugin that allows you to search Metalink and Oracle Docs direct from your browser.

So, help stem the tide, go ahead, check it out.

Find the right JDeveloper Patch for OAF development

Mon, 2006-06-19 08:54

I have read a number of questions regarding what JDeveloper version should be used for OAF development. After a recent upgrade of our development system from 11.5.9 to 11.5.10 CU2, I did some research on Metalink and found the following info regarding JDeveloper versions:

Current JDeveloper patches:

  1. Patch 4045639 - 9IJDEVELOPER WITH OA EXTENSION ARU FOR FWK.H
  2. Patch 4141787 - 9IJDEVELOPER WITH OA EXTENSION ARU FOR CU1
  3. Patch 4573517 - Oracle9i JDeveloper with OA Extension for 11.5.10 CU2
  4. Patch 4725670 - 9IJDEVELOPER WITH OA EXTENSION ARU FOR 11i10 RUP3

To determine which patch to use, you can simply check the framework version in your instance by using http://host:port/OA_HTML/OAInfo.jsp, then choose the matched one.

11.5.10K = patch 4045639
11.5.101CU = patch 4141787
11.5.102CU = patch 4573517
11.5.103CU = patch 4725670

It would be interesting to have a survey regarding what framework versions are being used for OAF development. Please post your current development version in a comment; I will publish the results at a later stage.

Checkout Metalink note 416708.1 for the up to date list of OAF releases.

The main aim of this Blog is to share my experiences as an Oracle e-Business Suite (EBS) developer. I will also from time to time blog about any subject that made me laugh, cry, angry or I feel would be of interest.

Just to get everybody thinking here is a short list of EBS topics I will be covering:

  • Oracle Application Framework Development, Extension and Personalization
  • Database Performance (Development Specific)
  • SQL & PL/SQL Concurrent Development
  • Open Interfaces and API's
  • Forms, Reports, CUSTOM Library development and customization
  • Workflow Development and Customization
  • Development Tools (JDev, Forms, Reports, TOAD, etc.)

All comments, anonymous or otherwise, fully appreciated.
