August 2018 Update to Integrated SOA Gateway

Mon, 2018-08-13 11:19

Oracle E-Business Suite Integrated SOA Gateway (ISG) provides an infrastructure to provide, consume, and administer Oracle E-Business Suite web services. It service-enables public integration interfaces registered in Oracle Integration Repository. These interfaces can be deployed as SOAP and/or REST-based web services. ISG also provides a service invocation framework to consume external SOAP based web services.

I am pleased to announce the availability of new consolidated patch for Integrated SOA Gateway in EBS R12.2 and EBS R12.1.3. This patch contains a new feature: REST support for Open Interface Tables. It also includes over four dozen fixes for stability and performance, and is highly recommended for all users. 

You can download the latest ISG consolidated patch here:

Oracle E-Business Suite Integrated SOA Gateway R12.2:
Patch 27949145:R12.OWF.C - ISG Consolidated Patch for Release 12.2 (18_3_3)

This is a cumulative patch update that includes all previously released ISG updates for EBS R12.2.

Oracle E-Business Suite Integrated SOA Gateway R12.1.3:
Patch 27941624:R12.OWF.B - ISG Consolidated Patch for Release 12.1 (18_3_3)

This is a cumulative patch update that includes all previously released ISG updates for EBS R12.1.3.

These patches include critical bug fixes in Integrated SOA Gateway. They include major updates in REST service enablement of Open Interface Tables and Views. If you are using Open Interface Tables and Views as REST based web services with previous ISG consolidated patch, you are required to uptake this new consolidated patch.

SAN and Wildcard Certificates Certified with EBS 12.2

Mon, 2018-07-09 08:30

We are pleased to announce that Subject Alternative Name (SAN) and Wildcard Certificates are now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 when enabling TLS.

Note: We previously announced certification of SAN and Wildcard Certificates with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.

What are SAN and Wildcard Certificates?

The use of the SAN field in a certificate request (CSR) allows you to specify multiple host names to be protected by a single public key certificate. Use of SAN will also allow using a single certificate for multiple domains.

A Wildcard Certificate is a public key certificate that can be used with multiple sub-domains of a domain.

Note: The latest releases of some browsers (e.g. Google Chrome) now require a SAN extension. Check your browser to determine if SAN is required.

How do you deploy SAN or Wildcard Certificates?

In the CSR SAN field, you may use the subjectAltName value, and optionally also use the wildcard character:

  • Example 1: SAN field entry for the CSR:

subjectAltName = DNS:www.example.com,DNS:example.com

  • Example 2: SAN field entry with a wildcard for the CSR:

subjectAltName = DNS:*.example.com

If you have already enabled TLS, you may need to redo your CSR using the SAN field. Check with your CA regarding their specific requirements for adding SAN. If you have not enabled TLS, simply follow the instructions for doing so, using the SAN field accordingly.

Note: We highly recommend that all customers migrate to TLS. If you have not already migrated to TLS, please do so as soon as possible.

For complete instructions, refer to the following My Oracle Support Knowledge Document:

Four Enhancements for Concurrent Processing in EBS 12.1 Now Available

Wed, 2018-05-23 12:15

We have just released four new enhancements for Concurrent Processing in E-Business Suite 12.1.3:

  1. Storage Strategies for Log and Output File Locations: Create custom storage strategies for management of large numbers of concurrent processing log and output files. Customers can specify the strategy that best suits their particular needs. These strategies are called schemes.
  2. Output File Naming Strategies: The output file naming conventions are now based on USER.REQID and REQID.OUT. The old USER format is desupported.
  3. Timed Shutdown: submit a normal, graceful shutdown and also specify a number of minutes after which an Abort command will be executed. After this number of minutes has passed, and Concurrent Processing has not yet shut down, the graceful shutdown will be converted to an Abort, and all remaining Concurrent Processing processes will be aborted.
  4. 64-bit Java Support for the Output Post-Processor Service: A 64-bit Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is now supported for the Output Post Processor (OPP). This support allows for a larger heap size to be set, compared to the 2G heap size that 32-bit Java allows. This larger heap size will decrease out-of-memory errors. Note that the 64-bit JVM can be run for the OPP service only.

Details about these four new enhancements are published here:

Where Did the EBS Certifications Summary Go?

Tue, 2018-05-22 11:46

The official word on all EBS certifications is the Certifications database on My Oracle Support (MOS):

Since I announce all of my team's certifications here on this blog, I've also created a one-page summary of all blog articles covering EBS technology stack certifications. This summary page is maintained manually, so if there's any gap between the MOS Certifications database and this summary, the Certifications database wins.

Our blogging engine has changed multiple times over the years, so the URL for the Certifications summary has also changed periodically. The Certifications summary lives here now - update your bookmarks:

Firefox Quantum ESR 60 Certified with EBS 12.1 and 12.2

Fri, 2018-05-18 12:08

Firefox ESR logo

Mozilla Firefox Quantum Extended Support Release 60 is certified as a Windows-based client browser for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 and 12.2. This includes 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Firefox Quantum.

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.

Certified desktop operating systems

  • Windows 10 (32-bit and 64-bit)
  • Windows 8.1 (32-bit and 64-bit)
  • Windows 7 SP1 (32-bit and 64-bit)

Enabling Automatic EBS Application Tier Failover Between Physical Nodes on Oracle Solaris Clusters

Tue, 2018-05-15 15:28

This is a long-overdue tip of the hat to my colleagues in the Oracle Solaris group. I recently learned about an article they posted a couple of years ago about E-Business Suite 12.2 running on Oracle Solaris Cluster:

It is possible to install an EBS primary application tier and the associated WebLogic Administration Server on a logical host using Oracle Solaris Clusters. If the physical node hosting these EBS services fail, then Oracle Solaris Cluster will automatically failover to another physical node in the cluster.

This is very cool! In a traditional EBS multinode environment, any user sessions on an affected failed node that were in-flight (meaning, in the middle of a transaction) would be lost. Users would need to redo any transactions that were not saved when their node when down. Deploying EBS on Oracle Solaris Clusters allow for the failover without any impact to those in-flight transactions.

If you're already running EBS on Solaris, you should definitely monitor this blog.

New White Paper: Creating Dependent List of Values in Web ADI 12.2

Fri, 2018-05-04 15:58

Oracle Web Applications Desktop Integrator (Web ADI) allows you to use Microsoft Office applications such as Excel, Word, and Project to upload data to Oracle E-Business Suite. For example, you can use Excel to create formatted spreadsheets on your desktop to download, view, edit, validate, and upload Oracle E-Business Suite data. 

Oracle Web Applications Desktop Integrator supports user interface components such as a list of values (LOV) in spreadsheets. In an Oracle Web Applications Desktop Integrator document, a LOV is displayed as a poplist or as a standard Search and Select view. A table-validated LOV is a type of LOV that only displays a set of values from a table.

A dependent LOV restricts the values displayed by a table-validated LOV based on the values present in another field in the spreadsheet.

We have just published a new white paper that describes how to define dependent List of Values:

In EBS Release 12.2.5 and later, you can define the dependent list of values directly in the integrator definition wizard in Oracle E-Business Suite Desktop Integration Framework. 

In Release 12.2.4 and earlier releases, you must first create Java classes to define the dependent list of values manually.

Your feedback is welcome!

Our Web ADI team would love to hear about your experiences with this functionality and this new white paper. Feel free to post your comments here or drop me a line directly.
