Firefox Quantum ESR 60 Certified with EBS 12.1 and 12.2 for macOS High Sierra 10.13

Steven Chan - Thu, 2018-10-18 13:04

Mozilla Firefox Quantum Extended Support Release 60 is certified as a macOS-based client browser on macOS High Sierra (macOS 10.13) for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 and 12.2.

What Use-cases Are Certified?

Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) R12 has two interfaces: a web-based (OA Framework/HTML) model for modules like iProcurement and iStore, and Oracle Forms/Java based model for our professional services modules like Oracle Financials.

Firefox Quantum Extended Support Release (ESR) 60.x is now certified with macOS for both web-based and Oracle Forms/Java based models as outlined below.

  • Firefox ESR 60.x is certified for EBS users running web-based (HTML / OA Framework) screens.
  • Firefox ESR 60.x is certified for running Java content in EBS using Java Web Start (JWS) technology.
  • Firefox ESR 60.x is not certified for running Java content in EBS using Java Plug-in technology.

Certified Versions

Oracle E-Business Suite

  • Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2
  • Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1

Desktop Operating System

  • macOS High Sierra (macOS 10.13.3 or higher)

Java Web Start (JWS)

  • JRE 8 Update 171 or higher

While this is the minimum recommended Java release, users are encouraged to upgrade to the latest and therefore most secure Java 8 CPU release available.

Prerequisite Patch Requirements

Running Firefox on macOS using Java Web Start (JWS) with EBS requires additional patching.

For further information on patch and set up requirements see

Implications for Safari 12 on macOS

Customers have been asking about the compatibility of new versions of the following Apple products with Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2:

  • Safari 12 (works with macOS 10.13.6 and 10.12.6)
  • macOS Mojave (macOS 10.14)

Neither of these two products have been certified with either EBS 12.1 or EBS 12.2 as of October 18, 2018.  

Safari 12 is unable to launch Java in the way that prior Safari versions could. This will prevent E-Business Suite 12.1 and 12.2 customers from running Forms-based products. Therefore, customers should *NOT* upgrade to Safari 12 on macOS desktop platforms.

macOS Mojave (macOS 10.14) includes Safari 12. Customers should *NOT* upgrade to macOS Mojave.

What changed in Safari 12?

Safari 12 introduces an important change: it removes support for “legacy NPAPI plug-ins”. This affects all EBS releases. macOS Mojave includes Safari 12.

Some products within Oracle EBS 12.1 and 12.2 run via HTML in browsers. These products are sometimes called “self-service web applications”. They are expected to run without issue in Safari 12, but our certification testing is still underway.

Some products within Oracle EBS 12.1 and EBS 12.2 use Oracle Forms. Oracle Forms requires Java for desktop clients. On the macOS desktop platform, the only certified option today for launching Java is via the JRE plugin via the NPAPI approach.

This means that Safari 12 and macOS Mojave (macOS 10.4) will be unable to use the current JRE plugin-based launching technology for Java and Forms for EBS desktop users.

Recommendations for EBS customers on macOS platforms

As of today, the latest certified versions of Safari and macOS are:

  • Safari 11 (works with macOS 10.13)
  • macOS High Sierra (macOS 10.13)

EBS customers should use only certified configurations. EBS customers who use Forms-based products should avoid upgrading to Safari 12 or macOS Mojave today.

EBS customers who have upgraded to Safari 12 on macOS 10.13 can use Firefox ESR 60 to run Forms-based products via the Java Web Start technology.

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.  For more details about Firefox ESR, see the Mozilla ESR FAQ.

E-Business Suite 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 ESR 60

Mozilla has removed plug-in support in Firefox ESR 60. This means Firefox ESR 60 cannot run Forms-based content in EBS using the Java plugin method. 

If your Firefox ESR 60 end-users run Forms-based content in EBS, you must switch from the JRE plugin to Java Web Start

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.

New OA Framework 12.2.6 Update 15 Now Available

Steven Chan - Tue, 2018-10-16 12:41

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.

We periodically release 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 12.2.6 is now available:

Oracle Application Framework (FWK) Release 12.2.6 Bundle 15 (Patch 28739010:R12.FWK.C)

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 12.2.6 users should apply this patch. Future OAF patches for EBS Release 12.2.6 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 12.2.6 bundle patches.

In addition, this latest bundle patch includes fixes for the following issues:

  • When Rich Table Interaction is set to off, data binding for user-customizable properties does not take effect for classic tables.

  • A script error occurs on clicking the Go button in the Web ADI LOV window when selecting the Web ADI template.

  • An enhancement that allows developers to set an accessibility role attribute to a table HTML element.

  • Claim line level descriptive flexfields are not saved on page update.

Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.8 Now Available

Steven Chan - Mon, 2018-10-08 15:21

I am pleased to announce that Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.8 is now available.

This update includes several significant functional innovations around customer requests and voting, Enterprise Command Centers, user experience, data privacy standards, accounting standards changes, and automation to help customers move EBS environments to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

For details about the 2018 innovations, see:

Cliff Godwin talks through the latest innovations and what they mean for customers in this video:

Instructions for downloading and applying this latest release update pack (RUP) for the EBS 12.2 codeline can be found here:

What Does Release 12.2.8 Include?

As a consolidated suite-wide patchset, this RUP includes new features, statutory and regulatory updates, and enhancements for stability, performance, and security.

Release 12.2.8 is cumulative. That means that as well as providing new updates for this release, it also includes updates that were originally made available as one-off patches for earlier 12.2 releases.

For a complete list of new features, refer to:

Common Questions and Answers About Upgrading

  • Q: Is there a direct upgrade path from Release 11i to Release 12.2.8?
    A: No. Release 11i customers must first upgrade to Release 12.2 before applying 12.2.8.
  • Q: Is there a direct upgrade path from EBS 12.0 to 12.2.8?
    A: No. Release 12.0 customers must first upgrade to Release 12.2 before applying 12.2.8.
  • Q: Is there a direct upgrade path from EBS 12.2 to 12.2.8?
  • A: Yes. Release 12.2 customers can apply 12.2.8 directly to their
    environments. EBS 12.2.8 is an online patch, so it can be applied while an existing Release 12.2 system is running.
