    Somebody asked me the other day why the download options for Oracle Database 12.1.0.2 for Linux and Solaris  disappeared from OTN? The same will happen with the other platforms as soon as Oracle Database 12.2.0.1 is available on-premises for them as well. You can always download Oracle Database 12.1.0.2... [Read More]

    Web-based content in Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 runs on the Oracle Application Framework (also known as OA Framework, OAF, or FWK) user interface libraries and infrastructure. Since the initial release of Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2 in 2013, we have released a number of cumulative updates to Oracle Application Framework to fix performance, security, and stability issues.

    These updates are provided in cumulative Release Update Packs, and cumulative Bundle Patches that can be applied on top of the Release Update Packs. In this context, cumulative means that the latest RUP or Bundle Patch contains everything released earlier.

    The latest OAF update for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2.5 is now available:


        Where is this update documented?

        Instructions for installing this OAF Release Update Pack are in the following My Oracle Support knowledge document:

        Who should apply this patch?

        All Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2.5 users should apply this patch.  Future OAF patches for EBS Release 12.2.5 will require this patch as a prerequisite. 

        What's new in this update?

        This bundle patch is cumulative: it includes all fixes released in previous EBS Release 12.2.5 bundle patches.

        This latest bundle patch includes fixes for following bugs/issues:

        • 22590683 - FORWARD-PORT 21465867 TO 12.2.5
        • 24391264 - 12.2.X : ICONS NOT ALIGNED WITH FUNC NAME IN OLD HOMEPAGE IN CHROME/FIREFOX

          Introduction

          This article summarizes our selection of the Oracle Cloud Platform Services (PaaS) with specific focus on use with an existing Oracle Cloud Applications (SaaS) environment. In other content the term PaaS4SaaS has been used for this context.

          This is the first of a series of articles in which we will use examples to demonstrate some of the key functions and features inside the Oracle PaaS services, and indeed many will be derived from real implementations. Again the focus is on getting value for use with an existing Oracle Fusion Cloud (SaaS) environment, as opposed to a general feature overview.

          Clearly all services evolve of time, and as such the information provided is accurate at the time of writing, and where possible links to updated content will be provided.

          Use-Cases

          In order to organize this series of articles, and at the same time portray the most-common use of each of the services, we've selected the following four broad categories within which to place each of the PaaS service offerings.

          • Build custom extension applications
          • Host your existing extension applications
          • Integrate your existing custom and packaged applications
          • Enhance your solution by adding ready-to-go features.

          Obviously there may be some overlap between categories with some services. The following table shows how the PaaS Services which are mostly likely to complement a SaaS environment fit into the categories above. Read the complete article here.

            [Contributing Authors: Robert Farrington and Elke Phelps]

            This article is a sequel to EBS on Oracle Cloud Terminology - Part I. The last article introduced the tools employed in the new and improved automation that was released in early March. In contrast, this article focuses on the specific capabilities of the tools.

            These terms are used throughout our Oracle by Example tutorials, and will also be employed in communications such as future blog articles.

            For a full list of terms, refer to "Section 10: Glossary" in Getting Started with Oracle E-Business Suite on Oracle Cloud (Doc ID 2066260.1).

            Provisioning - The process of creating an Oracle E-Business Suite environment in the cloud. The EBS Cloud Admin Tool (defined in the Part I article) can be used to:

            • Provision new enviroments from binaries in the EBS Public Cloud Container
            • Provision cloned environments from backups of existing environments

            Backup - A copy of your Oracle E-Business Suite environment to a specified storage area or device. A valid Oracle E-Business Suite backup consists of a point-in-time copy of the application and database tier binaries and data. The backup storage can be located on-premises or on Oracle Cloud. Backup storage options on Oracle Cloud can be either Oracle Compute Cloud Service account storage or the Oracle Storage Cloud Service.

            Restoring - The process of copying a backup from a designated storage area or device to return the environment to its state at the point the backup was taken.

            Cloning - The process of copying and configuring an Oracle E-Business Suite environment (source) to another Oracle E-Business Suite environment (target). The target environment of a cloning operation is a modified copy of the source environment. The copy can be either a backup or a snapshot of the current running environment, or a backup or a snapshot taken at a previous point in time. The source environment and/or the target environment can be on-premises or on Oracle Cloud. The target environment after the copy and reconfiguration is called a clone.

            Lift and Shift - The process of using backup and cloning utilities to move an existing Oracle E-Business Suite installation from on-premises to Oracle Cloud, whereby the on-premises environment is shut down and the cloud environment becomes the permanent version.

            A common use case for applications that have multiple pages is passing values between pages. For example you might want to pick up a specific record or value in one page and then use that as a parameter for a query in another page.

            In the February release or Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service as part of the extension hook points that we provide, we added support for shared resources. These are JavaScript libraries you can add to your application - and that can be used across your app.

            In the demo below I show you how you can use the built-in sample template for a shared resource to define a variable, and then how that variable is exposed in various places in the product through the expression builder allowing you to set its value in one page and use that value in another one.

            Oracle Fusion Middleware products get new Patch Set updates.  When a new Patch Set has been released, a 12 month Grace Period for the previous Patch Set begins.  Once that Grace Period ends, no new patches for the previous Patch Set will be released.

            For more details, see:

            Oracle Internet Directory is part of a suite of products called "Oracle Identity and Access Management" (IAM).  OID 11.1.1.7 was released in April 2013 .  OID 11.1.1.9 was released in May 2015, which means that the Grace Period for OID 11.1.1.7 ended after May 2016. 

            All E-Business Suite users running OID 11.1.1.7 should upgrade to OID 11.1.1.9 to remain under Error Correction Support. OID 11.1.1.x is covered by Premier Support to December 2018, and covered by Extended Support to December 2021.

            Vagrant is a tool to manage virtual machine-based environments. Read more about Vagrant here. Why use Vagrant? If you develop code that runs on Linux but use a MacOS or Windows machine to run your preferred browser, editor, debugger or development tools, Vagrant offers a consistent workflow to create disposable Linux environment whose configuration and dependencies are isolated from your development machine.

            Vagrant Boxes are pre-built base images that can be imported into Vagrant as a starting point. We’ve packaged Oracle Linux 7.3 in a Vagrant box. To use this ready-to-go package, you must have Oracle VM VirtualBox and Vagrant installed. If you don't, you can download those here: 

            Once you have these installed, you can download and launch the Oracle Linux box using the following commands:

            # mkdir ol73; cd ol73
            # vagrant box add --name ol73 http://yum.oracle.com/boxes/oraclelinux/ol73/ol73.box
            # vagrant init ol73
            # vagrant up
            # vagrant ssh
            

            After this, you'll be logged in to your Oracle Linux environment and you're ready to go. The working directory you created above, ol73, will be mounted in the virtual machine as a shared folder on /vagrant so you can use an editor or development tool on your host system to edit code and other files while accessing, compiling and running those files from within the Oracle Linux guest VM. 

            terminal screenshot after starting vagrant box

            Once you no longer need the box, you can get rid of it:

            # vagrant destroy

            The Oracle Linux Vagrant Box we just released has the following high-level specs:
            • Download size: 378 MB
            • 2 vCPUs
            • 2048 MB RAM
            • Oracle Linux 7.3 with Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel 4.1.12-61.1.28.el7uek.x86_64 
            • Minimal package set installed
            • VirtualBox guest additions 5.1.12 installed
            • 12 GB root volume
            • 4 GB swap 
            • XFS root filesystem
            • Yum configured for Oracle’s Yum server - yum.oracle.com

            Look for more Oracle Linux boxes to be released in the future. Go get it here: yum.oracle.com/boxes and let us know what you think in the comments

            Oracle has implemented a number of strategies to curb cheating and protect the value of certification. However, cheating is a big business and it is difficult to police all outlets. While we continue to explore new security measures, there are things that you can do, as a legitimate certification holder to help protect the value of your certification from cheaters. 

            1. Strongly discourage the sharing of content among candidates. Don't post test content in forums, upload items to dumps or help others using real content.
            2. Don't point people to brain dumps or even encourage them. Don't support illegal content thieves, distributors, and seekers. Let them fend for themselves. Avoid any actions that enable a short-cutter to circumvent the real process of actually getting certified.
            3. Become an evangelist - tell both your success and horror stories. Share with people how following the correct process has paid off in your career and in your life. Share examples of where you seen or heard of people who have been burned by cutting corners and cheating.
            4. Report specific instances of cheating and fraud to Oracle. Using Oracle's fraud reporting email address, you can report instances of fraud and cheating to the Oracle Certification Program. Don't worry - your submission is anonymous. We investigate these reports vigorously and take action wherever legally possible. 

            Learn about The High Cost of Cheating to you, your peers and your current or future employer in last week's post. 

            This list was originally shared in the Oracle Certification Blog post Cheating Part 7: What Can You and I Do About Cheating? that was posted in December 2009.

            In Oracle Property Manager, proration rule setup plays a very important role while calculating the rent amount for a lease which is staring / ending in the middle of the period. Based on the proration rule, system divides the monthly / annual rent to derive the daily rent amount and based on that the rent amount for fraction period will be arrived.

            Here is an example of how the lease amount is calculated with different proration rules, when the lease is started in the middle of the period.

            Let’s assume a lease has a monthly rent of 10,000 and payment term start date is 15th Sep. Then the Sep rent amount will be

            Firefox ESR logo

            Mozilla Firefox 52 Extended Support Release (ESR) is certified as a Windows-based client browser for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 and 12.2.

            What is Mozilla Firefox ESR?

            Mozilla offers an Extended Support Release based on an official release of Firefox for organizations that are unable to mass-deploy new consumer-oriented versions of Firefox every six weeks.  From the Mozilla ESR FAQ:

            What does the Mozilla Firefox ESR life cycle look like?

            Releases will be maintained for approximately one year, with point releases containing security updates coinciding with regular Firefox releases. The ESR will also have a two cycle (12 week) overlap between the time of a new release and the end-of-life of the previous release to permit testing and certification prior to deploying a new version.

            Maintenance of each ESR, through point releases, is limited to high-risk/high-impact security vulnerabilities and in rare cases may also include off-schedule releases that address live security vulnerabilities. Backports of any functional enhancements and/or stability fixes are not in scope.

            At the end of the support period for an ESR version:

            • the release will reach its end-of-life
            • no further updates will be offered for that version
            • an update to the next version will be offered through the application update service

            E-Business Suite to be certified with Firefox Extended Support Releases Only

            New personal versions of Firefox on the Rapid Release channel are released roughly every six weeks.  It is impractical for us to certify these new personal Rapid Release versions of Firefox with the Oracle E-Business Suite because a given Firefox release is generally obsolete by the time we complete the certification.

            From Firefox 10 and onwards, Oracle E-Business Suite is certified only with selected Firefox Extended Support Release versions. Oracle has no current plans to certify new Firefox personal releases on the Rapid Release channel with the E-Business Suite.

            Plug-in Support removed in Firefox Rapid Release 52

            Mozilla has removed plug-in support in Firefox Rapid Release 52.  This means that the Rapid Release version of Firefox cannot run Forms-based content in EBS. 

            Firefox Extended Support Release continues to offer plug-in support.  End-users who need to use Forms-based content in EBS must run the Firefox Extended Support Release. 

            Will EBS offer an alternative to plug-ins?

            Yes. We are working on an update to EBS that allows Forms-based content to run in browsers that do not have plug-in support.  See:

            When will the new Java Web Start alternative be released?

            Oracle's Revenue Recognition rules prohibit us from discussing certification and release dates, but you're welcome to monitor or subscribe to this blog. I'll post updates here as soon as soon as they're available.   

              EBS patching policy for Firefox compatibility issues

              Mozilla stresses their goal of ensuring that Firefox personal versions will continue to offer the same level of application compatibility as Firefox Extended Support Releases. 

              Oracle E-Business Suite Development will issue new E-Business Suite patches or workarounds that can be reproduced with Firefox Extended Support Releases.  If you report compatibility issues with Firefox personal releases that cannot be reproduced with Firefox Extended Support Releases, your options are:

              1. Deploy a certified Firefox Extended Support Release version instead of the Firefox personal version
              2. Report the incompatibility between Firefox ESR and Firefox personal to Mozilla
              3. Use Internet Explorer (on Windows) or Safari (on Mac OS X) until Mozilla resolves the issue
              EBS Compatibility with Firefox ESR security updates

              Mozilla may release new updates to Firefox ESR versions to address high-risk/high-impact security issues.  These updates are considered to be certified with the E-Business Suite on the day that they're released.  You do not need to wait for a certification from Oracle before deploying these new Firefox ESR security updates.

              Certified desktop operating systems
              • Windows 10 (32-bit and 64-bit)
              • Windows 8.1 (32-bit and 64-bit)

              Recently, we've discussed Oracle Code in our blog posts, but today we wanted to give special attention to several sessions related to "Mobile" at upcoming Oracle Code events.  As you may know, Oracle Code is a series of free conferences being held in 20 cities across the globe where developers can learn about the latest technologies, practices and trends in Cloud Development.  Through a series of keynotes, technical sessions, hands-on labs, workshops, and demos, developers will be able to learn from both experts and peers about everything from containers and the latest development tools to AI and chatbots.  These Code events should not be missed, and if you are on the US East Coast and are interested in mobile development, you'll want to make sure to attend these sessions below:

              The Rise of Chatbots in Enterprise Mobile Application Development

              Convene Rockefeller Center - Forum 2; 4:05pm-4:50pm; Frank Nimphius -- Senior Principal Product Manager, Oracle

              In many science fiction movies, such as 2001: A Space Odyssey, War Games, and any of the Star Trek movies, artificial intelligence is used to enable man-to-machine conversation.  Yet today, in the real world, conversational interfaces are becoming science reality in mobile computing, and are ready to be the next big thing in consumer and enterprise mobile application development.  Paired with artificial intelligence, chatbots help to simplify the mobile communication between users and services. Like in human conversation, well chosen wordings directed at these bots will allow users to book a table in a restaurant, arrange a taxi pickup to the airport, and buy an airline ticket, among many other things. An entry level presentation, this conference session will explore chatbots from a business perspective and will focus on the positioning, use cases, and possibilities that chatbots will create for developers.
