    Yes.  All versions of Oracle E-Business Suite require Oracle Database Enterprise Edition.  Oracle Database Enterprise Edition is a mandatory requirement for EBS 12.2, 12.1 and older EBS releases. This applies to all Oracle Database releases, including Database 12.1, 11.2, and older Database releases certified with EBS.

    It is not possible to run Oracle E-Business Suite with other Oracle Database editions, including:

    • Oracle Database Standard Edition One (Database SE1)
    • Oracle Database Standard Edition (Database SE)
    • Oracle Database Express Edition (Database XE)
    • Oracle Database Personal Edition (Database PE)

    Why is Oracle Database Enterprise Edition a mandatory prerequisite for EBS today?

    The Oracle E-Business Suite is designed to support a wide range of deployment architectures, from small single-office instances to highly-secure, highly-available Global Single Instance deployments.  To support these architectures, the E-Business Suite uses a broad range of database features and extra cost options such as Advanced Queuing, Data Guard, Virtual Private Databases, Secure Application Roles, Fine-Grained Auditing, Advanced Security, Label Security, Materialized Views, Database Vault, Partitioning, OLAP, Advanced Compression, Connection Manager, and more.

    Will Oracle Database Enterprise Edition always be a mandatory prerequisite?

    It is expected that Oracle Database Enterprise Edition will be a mandatory prerequisite for all future Oracle E-Business Suite releases and Database release combinations.

    The Enterprise Edition is the only Database edition that includes all of those components. Enterprise Edition is the only Database edition certified and supported for use with E-Business Suite environments

    The preceding is intended to outline our general product direction.  It is intended for information purposes only, and may not be incorporated into any contract.   It is not a commitment to deliver any material, code, or functionality, and should not be relied upon in making purchasing decision.  The development, release, and timing of any features or functionality described for Oracle’s products remains at the sole discretion of Oracle.

    Valuable Features:

    A definitive differentiator is the very good integration capability the platform provides: It has a broad spectrum of connectivity adapters to integrate with third party enterprise information systems, like SAP, Siebel, and JD Edwards, and also cloud solutions like Salesforce.

    In addition, the platform comes with a standalone, first-class Service Bus component that can be used for service virtualization. This enables customers to create and edit new integrations efficiently and helps to adopt new trends or concepts, like cloud, very fast.

    Aside from that, the platform also addresses business needs (process automation with BPEL), allows for further transparency for business transactions (audit trails, Business Activity Monitoring) and provides rich capabilities in the direction of fault handling and resiliency.

    Improvements to My Organization:

    The product allows you to visualize how a company is working currently by providing rich possibilities for analyses such as the audit trails and real-time integration and business insights, and therefore shows where improvements might be valuable. This becomes more and more important for companies to differentiate themselves from competitors. Read the complete article here.

      Here's a handy custom component (i.e., a CCA component) for zipping files and downloading them, in an Oracle JET application:

      <fileDownloadForm
          file="{{file}}"
          content1="{{htmlContent}}"
          content2="{{jsContent}}">
      </fileDownloadForm>

      I've created it as part of a project where we want to let developers design a CCA component and then download it as a ZIP file, so that it can be distributed to those who want to make use of the component. That's the reason you can see above that two files are assumed to be provided, with 'file' being the name of the file, used for both the view and the viewModel.

      In an application, the above component is rendered as follows:

      What happens when "demo" is changed to "sample" in the text field above and then the "Download" button is clicked? Well, when you do that, a download process begins and you'll have a ZIP file, with this content, yes!, a CCA component:

      So... what this blog entry is about is... how to create a CCA component for downloading CCA components... 

      The structure of the CCA component you'll create is as follows:

      Here's the JSON file, "fileDownloadForm.json":

      {
        "properties": {
          "file": {
            "description": "file name.",
            "type": "string"
          },
          "content1": {
            "description": "html content.",
            "type": "string"
          },
          "content2": {
            "description": "js content.",
            "type": "string"
          }
        }
      }

      Here's the view, in "fileDownloadForm.html":

      <div class="oj-panel">
          <label>ZIP Name:</label>
          <input  type="text"
                  data-bind="ojComponent: {
                      component: 'ojInputText',
                      value: file}"/>
          <button class="oj-button-primary"
                  style="float: right;"
                  data-bind="
                      click: downloadFile,
                      ojComponent: { 
                              component: 'ojButton', 
                              label: 'Download' }">
          </button>
      </div>

      Here's the business logic in the viewModel, "fileDownloadForm.js":

      define(['knockout', 'jszip', 'file-saver'],
          function (ko, JSZip) {
              function model(context) {
                  var self = this;
                  self.file = null;
                  self.content1 = null;
                  self.content2 = null;
                  context.props.then(function (properties) {
                      if (properties.file) {
                          self.file = properties.file;
                      }
                      if (properties.content1) {
                          self.content1 = properties.content1;
                      }
                      if (properties.content2) {
                          self.content2 = properties.content2;
                      }
                  });
                  self.downloadFile = function (model, event) {
                      if (event.type === 'click' || 
                              (event.type === 'keypress'&& event.keyCode === 13)) {
                          var zip = new JSZip();
                          zip.file(self.file+".html", self.content1);
                          zip.file(self.file+".js", self.content2);
                          zip.file("loader.js", "to be done");
                          zip.file("README.txt", "to be done");
                          zip.generateAsync({type: "blob"})
                                  .then(function (content) {
                                      saveAs(content, self.file+".zip");
                                  });
                      }
                  };
              }
              return model;
          }
      );

      The above assumes you've set up these two libraries in your application:

      I.e., somehow, via Bower or otherwise, you've included them like this:

      In 'main.js', you should have these references in the 'paths' of 'requirejs.config':

      'file-saver': 'libs/file-saver/FileSaver',
         'jszip': 'libs/jszip/dist/jszip'

      And, to wrap things up, tying everything together, you have "loader.js":

      define(['ojs/ojcore',
          'text!./fileDownloadForm.html',
          './fileDownloadForm',
          'text!./fileDownloadForm.json',
          'ojs/ojcomposite'],
        function(oj, view, viewModel, metadata) {
          oj.Composite.register('fileDownloadForm', {
            view: {inline: view},
            viewModel: {inline: viewModel},
            metadata: {inline: JSON.parse(metadata)}
          });
        }
      );

      As a simple example of usage of the above, include the following in the "viewModel" of the handy custom component outlined at the start of this blog entry:

      self.file=ko.observable('demo');
      self.htmlContent=ko.observable('dummy html content');
      self.jsContent=ko.observable('dummy javascript content');

      Now, whenever you include the handy custom component, anywhere in your application, the user can click "Download" and then they'll have a ZIP file downloaded with the specified content in the specified files.

      clip_image002For anyone who has done performance and load testing in Oracle SOA suite, you know it can be frustrating and time consuming. However, our lives have just gotten much easier! Originally, quite a bit of manual work was needed to find or calculate how long composites took, what the problematic components were, and why instances just took too long. Fortunately, Oracle has introduced a new monitoring tool, Integration Workload Statistics (IWS). This tool creates a report very similar to an AWR report, but focuses on the SOA infrastructure. This feature was released with the new 12.2.1 version of SOA.

      Integration Workload Statistics

      clip_image004The IWS report is intended for reactive monitoring of your system. Enterprise Manager provides a few different tools for monitoring real-time performance and other metrics, however IWS was introduced to post-process poorly performing periods. Running a report over a one hour period where performance is a constant issue allows you to see what components are causing delays. The report details out statistics on components, composites, processes, adapters, endpoints, queues and more!

      IWS works by taking periodic, configurable snapshots of server metrics. These metrics are stored to the database and are available for reporting. The reports are generated based on a start and end time and further filtering can be done by server, partition, and even specific composites. Oracle has provided an easy way to view this data with a generated HTML report and they also provide a CSV file, or XML file with the data requested. 

      The report (assuming FINEST level collection) consists of:

        • Snapshot Details - Basic information about the snapshots, the duration of the report, and server details.
        • System Resource Usage - Statistics about JVM, SOA DataSources, and SOA WorkManagers.  This gives insight into how much heap the server using, the active connections to data sources, and how many threads each of the work managers are using on each server. Read the complete article here.

      clip_image002In this blog post, I will provide a general introduction of REST, explain some of the choices made and lay some of the ground work. The second part of this blog series will discuss the token management part while the third and final part describes the actual creation of the SOAP services providing the proxy to the external REST APIs.

      With the introduction of SOA Suite 12c, the Oracle JCA REST adapter was introduced for use in both SOA and Service Bus 12c. This enables SOA developers to expose REST interfaces to their service consumers. A study by the Oracle A-team shows that in certain scenarios response times on mobile platforms may be reduced by an order of magnitude by consuming REST services instead of their SOAP equivalents.

      However, using the REST adapter you cannot only expose REST interfaces to your own service implementations (inbound REST), but you can also consume REST services (outbound REST). In this series of blogs, I will demonstrate how I implemented a use case of “outbound” API management for a proof of concept, where the REST services were exposed as SOAP web services to our internal clients (which are largely “REST unaware”). An additional dimension is provided by the fact that the REST APIs invoked are secured by OAuth 2.0, so also some token management is needed in order to successfully invoke the service.

      What about Security?

      I am glad you asked. As SOAP has quite a number of standardized extensions in the realms of orchestration and security, this is very much “terra incognita” in the REST world. Well, not really. As REST is leveraging the HTTP protocol as the transport mechanism, a first step in security would be to use HTTPS (HTTP over SSL) to prevent an intermediary from eavesdropping on the communication between the service and the client. However, this will only prevent the interception of messages, it does not provide the server with any method of determining the origin of the request. Using HTTP Basic Authentication may be an option to force the client to sent some identification to the server, but the problem is that this scenario is not very useful for application to application message exchange as it does not provide options to provide temporary access or to revoke the access.

      Enter OAuth, “an open protocol to allow secure authorization in a simple and standard method from web, mobile and desktop applications.” Version 2.0 of this protocol has been published in 2012 and is widely in use for securing access and authorization to services, e.g. Google, LinkedIn, Facebook, Dropbox and Paypal to name a few.

      What is REST?

      What is REST? And how does if differ from SOAP? Well, first of all REST and SOAP are intended to access (remote) Web Services. Where SOAP is a heavy-weight protocol, involving predefined message structures and formats, REST is defined very loosely as an “architectural style”. Messages transmitted to SOAP web services are always encoded as XML data structures, whereas the payload in REST can be either XML or JSON. The latter seems to be the preferred format nowadays, I came across a site describing JSON as “The Fat-Free Alternative To XML“.

      In REST, you are manipulating “resources” (types of objects, e.g. customers, orders, items and the like) using standard HTTP methods. You’d use the GET method on a resource to retrieve a single instance or collection, use the HTTP POST method to create a new one, update a resource instance using HTTP PUT and the HTTP DELETE takes care of removing an object.

      Chatbots employ a conversational interface that is both lean and smart, and if designed properly, is even charming. They can help people find the things they want and need, in real-time, without the hassle of searching online or navigating a complex customer service organization. Think about how much work it takes to book travel and check-in on an airline.  You have to search for flights, then compare prices, departure times and amenities, then enter your information, and finally choose which add-ons you would like. After that, there’s an entirely separate process for check-in!  What if you could accomplish all of this in one interactive experience by answering only a few questions?  Chatbots are the singularity that both “smart” and “mobile” devices have been waiting for.

      But how easy (or difficult) is it actually to build a chatbot? Tamer Qumhieh, Principal Solutions Architect on Oracle's A-Team, answers this question in a blog post that serves as a tutorial on how to create and deploy a chatbot on Facebook Messenger.

      First, Tamer discusses how to create both a Facebook page and an actual Facebook app.  Then, he moves into how you can implement a chatbot in your Facebook app using Webhook and NodeJS.  Next, Tamer will show you how to set up your chatbot to receive Facebook messages, and how to test your bot using Facebook Messenger.  Finally, you'll be able to deploy your chatbot to Oracle Application Container Cloud Service (ACCS).

      The blog post has code snippets pasted throughout so non-developers should understand that this tutorial is a bit technical. However, all the code can be copied and pasted so no code writing is necessary! It's a very interesting read, could be a fun side project over the holidays, and you can check it out here!

      Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service (ABCS) lets you do a lot of things in a declarative way, however for more complex validation and conditional logic you might need to resort to some basic coding in JavaScript.

      I ran into such a case with an application I was developing, and figured out that the code sample from that system will be a good way to illustrate some coding techniques in ABCS.

      The application I was working on allows people to register to various events. Each event has a certain capacity, so if there are too many people registered to an event, we want the rest to be added to a wait list. For each record of a person registering, we keep a reference to the event they want to attend.  So the logic flow is:

      1. Check how many open spaces are available for the event we are trying to register for.
      2. If there is space in the event, save the new person data, and show a success message.
      3. If there isn't space, update the person "Waitlisted" field to be true, save the data, and show a message saying that the person is on the wait list. 

       

      In the demo video below I'm showing how to:

      • Define declarative conditional flow of steps based on results from custom code
      • Traverse relationships between custom object through code
      • Execute a conditional query and run through the results from a custom object with code
      • Set the value for a property of a custom object through code

      For reference here is the complete code from the sample:

      require([
          'operation/js/api/Conditions',
          'operation/js/api/Operator'
      ], function (Conditions, Operator) {
          var lab = Abcs.Entities().findById('Lab');
          var id = lab.getProperty('id');
          //condition is to find a lab with the id that is in the page's drop down box
          var condition = Conditions.SIMPLE(id, Operator.EQUALS, $Person.getValue('ref2Combo_Box'));
          var operation = Abcs.Operations().read({
              entity: lab,
              condition: condition
          });
          //if query returned value we loop over the rows and check the capacity and registration columns
          operation.perform().then(function (operationResult) {
              if (operationResult.isSuccess()) {
                  operationResult.getData().forEach(function (oneRecord) {
                      if ((oneRecord.Capacity - oneRecord.Registered) < 1) {
                          $Person.setValue('Waitlisted', true);
                          reject("error");
                      } else
                      {
                          resolve("ok");
                      }
                  });
              }
          }).catch(function (operationResult) {
              if (operationResult.isFailure()) {
                  // Insert code you want to perform if fetching of records failed
                  alert('didnt worked');
                  reject("error");
              }
          });
      });

      More information on the JavaScript APIs used here are in the Oracle ABCS Documentation.

      Oracle Ksplice is a powerful tool that allows administrators to increase the speed of deployment of critical patches and helps eliminate downtime.

      The Ksplice enhanced client extends the ability of Ksplice to enable in-memory patching of critical user space libraries in Oracle Linux. The ability to patch these libraries in-memory without rebooting not only increases system security but also reduces costly system downtime. Recent exploits such as Heartbleed can be patched automatically without administrator intervention, maintenance windows or downtime. 

      Before you enable Ksplice, you need to disable any prelinking of binaries that may have occurred. Oracle Linux 6 systems come with the prelink tool installed by default which must be removed to prevent conflicts with the Ksplice enhanced client.  Oracle Linux 7 systems do not have prelink installed by default.

      # prelink –au
      # yum remove prelink

      Installation of the Ksplice enhanced client is simple for Oracle Linux servers that are registered to the Unbreakable Linux Network (ULN).

      Login to the ULN web interface, select the system you want to enable Ksplice on, then click on Manage Subscriptions.  Next, enable the Ksplice-aware user space packages channel for that server.

      After enabling the Ksplice-aware user space packages channel, use yum to install the Ksplice enhanced client on the server:

      # yum install –y ksplice

      Once the Ksplice client is installed, retrieve your access key for Ksplice from ULN and add it to the Ksplice configuration by editing /etc/uptrack/uptrack.conf.

      Next, use yum to install the Ksplice aware versions of the user space packages installed on your server, without updating any other packages on the system, by running following command:

      # yum --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=ol7_x86_64_userspace_ksplice update

      A single reboot is required to activate the newly installed Ksplice aware libraries. After you reboot the system once, you will then be able to apply any future patches to both the kernel and critical user space libraries without rebooting. 

      In addition to patching both kernel and critical user space packages, Ksplice can also be used as a diagnostic tool by Oracle Support to load diagnostic kernels without rebooting the system. 

      The following white paper provides the workflow of using Ksplice as a diagnostic tool with Oracle Support: 


      The full Ksplice User Guide can be found here: 


      Are you ready to take back your weekends and increase the security of your systems with Ksplice?
