Identifying Data Model Changes Between EBS 12.1.3 and Prior EBS Releases

Steven Chan - Thu, 2011-02-17 12:11
The EBS 12.1.3 Release Content Document (RCD, Note 561580.1) summarizes the latest functional and technology stack-related updates in a specific release. The E-Business Suite Electronic Technical Reference Manual (eTRM) summarizes the database objects in a specific EBS release. Those are useful references, but sometimes you need to find out which database objects have changed between one EBS release and another. This kind of information about the differences or deltas between two releases is useful if you have customized or extended your EBS instance and plan to upgrade to EBS 12.1.3. Where can you find that information? Answering that question has just gotten a lot easier. You can now use a new EBS Data Model Comparison Report tool: * EBS Data Model Comparison Report Overview (Note 1290886.1) This new tool lists the database object definition changes between the following source and target EBS releases: 1. EBS 11.5.10.2 and EBS 12.1.3 2. EBS 12.0.4 and EBS 12.1.3 3. EBS 12.1.1 and EBS 12.1.3 4. EBS 12.1.2 and EBS 12.1.3 Steven Chan http://blogs.oracle.com/stevenChan/about.html

Sun JRE 1.6.0_24 Certified with Oracle E-Business Suite

Steven Chan - Tue, 2011-02-15 14:13
The mismanaged session cookie issue (now fixed) may have made you a little nervous about automatically applying new JRE updates. To reassure you on that front: * Sun Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0_24 (a.k.a. JRE 6u24) is certified with E-Business Suite Release 11i and 12. * JRE 1.6.0_24 contains the fixes for the mismanaged session cookie issue that were originally released as part of JRE 1.6.0_23. All JRE releases are certified with EBS upon release Our standard policy is that all E-Business Suite customers can apply all JRE updates to end-user desktops from JRE 1.6.0_03 and higher. We test all new JRE releases in parallel with the JRE development process, so all JRE releases are considered certified with the E-Business Suite on the same day that they're released by our Java team. In other words, you do not need to wait for a certification announcement before applying new JRE releases to your EBS users' desktops. If you wish, your desktop administrators can enable the Java "Automatic updates" option on your end-users' desktops. Steven Chan http://blogs.oracle.com/stevenChan/about.html

New Whitepaper: Upgrading EBS 11i Forms + OA Framework Personalizations to EBS 12

Steven Chan - Wed, 2011-02-09 12:25
Personalizations are -- and have always been -- one of the safest and most upgradable ways to "customize" your Oracle E-Business Suite screens, both for Oracle Forms-based screens and for Oracle Application Framework-based pages. However, the upgrade from Release 11i to Release 12.1 spans many years of EBS evolution, during which time Oracle has actively been building many new features and modules. A lot has changed in Oracle E-Business Suite that may affect upgrading your personalizations from 11i to 12.1. We have published a new note on My Oracle Support that discusses ways to evaluate your existing personalizations: * Upgrading Form Personalizations and OA Framework Personalizations from Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i to 12.1 (Note 1292611.1) Sara Woodhull http://blogs.oracle.com/stevenChan/about.html
