Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 is now covered by Premier Support to September 30, 2023. This is documented here:
Premier Support includes new EBS 12.2 patches for:
What are the minimum patching baselines for EBS 12.2?
The minimum patching baselines for EBS 12.2 have not changed. New EBS 12.2 patches are created and tested against the minimum patching baseline documented in Section 4.1, "E-Business Suite 12.2 Minimum Prerequisites" in this document:
All EBS 12.2 customers must apply the minimum patch prerequisites to be eligible for Premier Support. Those patches include the suite-wide EBS 12.2.3 Release Update Pack and a small number of technology stack infrastructure updates.
Instead of applying the minimum baseline
Many new updates have been released since that patching baseline
was originally published. These new patches contain stability,
performance, and security-related updates and are strongly recommended
for all customers.
If you haven't applied any of those updates yet, the simplest solution would be to apply the latest suite-wide EBS 12.2.6 Release Update Pack (RUP). That way, you get all of the 12.2 minimum patching requirements and the latest updates simultaneously.If you've reached this blog article via a search engine, it is possible that a new Release Update Pack has been released since this article was first published. Click on the "Certifications" link in the sidebar for a pointer to the latest EBS 12.2 RUP.

Here's an overview of CSS tools in NetBeans that I've found to be quite useful. Below, in the first example, the value of "class" is set to "foo", which does not exist in any of the available CSS stylesheets. NetBeans offers to create the rule in a stylesheet of my choosing and to import that stylesheet into my HTML file:
Below, the value of "id" is "foo", which doesn't exist in any of the stylesheets. NetBeans suggests to create it for you and import the related stylesheet:
In this case, no stylesheets exist and NetBeans offers to create a new stylesheet in which it will write the currently undefined rule:
Below, you can see I am using code completion and am shown all the available rules for the "class" attribute, from all the stylesheets, regardless of whether those stylesheets have been imported:
In the scenario below, I hold down the Ctrl key and click on "foo", i.e., the value of "class", because I want to jump to the definition of "foo" in the stylesheet in which it is defined. However, NetBeans tells me that there are two different "foo" rules available. One of those is from a stylesheet that has been imported and the other is from an unrelated stylesheet, i.e., one that has not yet been imported:
And here I have imported the previously unrelated stylesheet so that now NetBeans shows me both stylesheets where "foo" is defined and lets me choose which one should be opened.

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 05:50:41 +0000In this article, I will show a little bit more of ICS – the Integration Cloud Service. In a previous article, I have introduced some concepts – such as Connection, Integration, Business Identifier. I have shown how to create an integration connecting two connections – an inbound and an outbound one (both of type SOAP). In picture, that looks like this: In this article, I will create a new connection (REST API style) and create an integration to expose this connection, leveraging the same outbound connection: After creating the integration, I will activate it and invoke the new REST API from a web browser and from SOAP UI. The steps are: Create REST Connection Create and activate the Integration (with the mappings for request and response and the business identifiers for tracking) Invoke the REST API Configure REST Connection Go to the ICS Home Page and navigate to the Connections page. Create a New Connection. Read the complete article here.

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 18:17:35 +0000Today, during our Data Integration webcast, Benjamin Perez-Goytia from our Oracle A-Team illustrated this exciting integration: Database Cloud Service (DBCS), Big Data Preparation (BDPCS), and Business Intelligence Cloud Service (BICS) with Oracle Data Integrator (ODI). You can view the recording here. Here are some of the steps, details, and highlights he went through during the demonstration: · Uploading data from an on-premise Oracle database into DBCS using ODI. Datapump was used in conjunction with secured copy (SCP). The Datapump Knowledge Module (KM) had been modified to perform a secured copy command to move the on-prem datapump files into DBCS. · Once data was loaded into DBCS (with datapump), ODI populated a small star schema with dimensions and fact tables (on DBCS). This was be done with the ODI agent on JCS. · The fact table was then populated with Oracle Partition Exchange. · An aggregate file from the fact table was written on disk (on JCS). ODI performed this operation with the agent on JCS. · ODI then sent the file into Storage CS using CLI. The Storage CS instance was the one used by BDP as a source. · On BDP, a transform script was created to clean the file, and publish it into BICS. A BDP policy was executed on BDP to publish the data into BICS. · On BICS, a Visual Analyzer dashboard was been created and shown to view the data. · In addition, the BICS dashboard was refreshed to demonstrate how data changes each time a new partition is loaded into the fact table. It was fun – and really interesting! Did you miss it? View the webcast here. To view more of the recordings we have done, please go to our webcast archive page.

Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service (ABCS for short) enables you (and your business users) to create rich web and mobile apps in a quick visual way from a browser with no-coding required (but coding is possible).
The UI that ABCS creates is based on Oracle JET, which many of our customers love because its responsiveness and lightness.
Some Oracle ADF customers have been on the hunt for a new client-side UI solution for their apps, and Oracle JET is certainly a technology that will work for those use cases.
A nice feature for Oracle ADF customers is that their data-access and business-service layer is built in a reusable way that is decoupled from the UI. And now, with the ability to expose ADF Business Components as REST service, they can use any modern UI framework to develop the UI including Oracle JET. There are already many blog entries with code samples on how to write JET apps that connect to ADF Business Components
But what if we could give you the simplicity of ABCS for the UI creation, the power of JET for the UI experience, and the ability to leverage your existing investment in Oracle ADF all without writing a single line of code manually?
Well, in the demo below I'll show you how you can reuse the logic you have in Oracle ADF Business Component and build a JET based UI on top of them in a declarative way with Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service.
Basically you get the best of each tool - and you don't need to write a single line of code !
In the 9 minutes demo I'll show you how to:
(Times are indicated in case you want to skip sections you are already familiar with)
width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/DFeL58IBPvc" frameborder="0">
If you are interested in a bit of a background on why this is so simple, the answer is that ABCS was built to enable easy integration with Oracle SaaS leveraging the REST services they expose. To quickly build the full app with all the defaulting you are seeing in there (full CRUD with a simple drag and drop) ABCS needs to know some basic information about the data that it needs to render (primary key, data types, etc). Since Oracle SaaS is built on Oracle ADF, we built into ABCS the capability to analyze the describe that ADF BC REST services provide. This makes it dead simple to consume ADF REST service in ABCS, whether these services come from Oracle's apps - or your own ADF apps :-)
As you can see there is a great synergy between Oracle ADF, Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service and Oracle JET.

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 07:07:48 +0000Integration is the term we employ for ‘what ties systems together into end-to-end interaction flows’. Integration describes what we have to do to make applications in one domain talk to those in another, or systems in one enterprise talk to those in another. And to systems running in one cloud interact with those running in another cloud or those running on premises. Integration is ideally approached based on standard based service interfaces and encapsulated implementations. With generic integration facilities handling most of the protocol, format, and technology specific details, and translating interactions as much as possible to standard SOAP and REST exchanges. And with that generic platform handling monitoring, security, system errors and state when asynchronous exchanges are required. The Oracle Integration Cloud Service (ICS from now on) provides the cloud based integration platform that can run and manage these integration flows. ICS exposes a browser based user interface through which the integration is first designed, then activated and managed. ICS provides adapters to easily interact with a number of popular SaaS applications (Salesforce, Oracle HCM Cloud, Oracle ERP Cloud, Oracle SalesCloud, Service Cloud | Right Now, Eloqua, CPQ, Gmail & Google Task, Evernote, …) and Platform Services and technologies (Oracle Database, Oracle Messaging Cloud Service, FTP, SOAP and REST services) as well as a collection of Social Networks (Twitter, Linked In, Facebook). With ICS it is straightforward to connect to any of these as a target and expose an tailor made, easy to use interface to ICS consumers. Some of these can also be a source for interactions: events in SaaS applications – such as creation or update of a business object – can trigger ICS to perform an integration flow – pushing data derived from the event to some target. In this article I will introduce some of the core terminology for ICS and demonstrate my first steps. I will create a SOAP service that exposes a simple operation to convert distances in meters to their equivalent in yards. This service is the based on an existing conversion service offered by a third party. ICS is used to virtualize this service and map to and from between the business friendly interface that I have devised and the pre-existing service interface. Overview You will see how I have to first create two connections. Connection is the ICS term for an external link – either outbound from ICS to target systems (comparable to business services in Service Bus or a Reference in SCA composites) or inbound into ICS (from external consumers), similar to Proxy Service in Service Bus and Service in SCA composites. One connection is outbound, to the third party service that does distance conversions. The other connection is inbound – it describes the SOAP interface that I want to expose from ICS to my consumers. Read the complete article here.

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 19:06:54 +0000Written by Nicole Fornacon, Marketing Director, EMEA/APAC, Oracle University Some years ago, did we think we would have so many smartphones today? Did we anticipate the increasing pressures IT departments would feel to support the business? Did we expect that Big Data and the Cloud would dominate the way they do now? One thing is clear: the convergence of mobility, Big Data, the Cloud, collaboration tools and the Internet of Things (IoT) are producing great changes – not only for general business, but also for the role the IT department plays. Technology is riding an ascending wave, changing the way organizations and end users behave. Rather than passively monitoring customers to gain insights about their behavior, IT is becoming much more about collaborating with customers and helping organizations' end users perform at peak efficiency. Ask yourself: What will IT departments look like in 2020? How will the role of the CIO change and how will this influence the way the IT department runs? How will end users in the business keep up? Changing the IT Department Today’s technology is less about operational delivery and infrastructure and more about finding solutions and working with the business. IT departments will become smaller as companies outsource more of the operational work to external suppliers. End users will be asked to do more than ever to keep functions running smoothly. By 2020, we will see smaller IT functions that are more highly skilled and more strategic. Technology is becoming more about customization than about commoditization. This will be particularly true when it comes to analytics and Big Data. Data scientists are in short supply, which means organizations will increasingly turn to external suppliers, as the Iot drives the need for data analytics. End users within organizations will be expected to learn how to deal with data and perform many analytical functions to support business growth. A new type of IT organization will be needed It will require being more agile and distributed across the business. Companies will need to redesign data center and application architecture to deliver real-time data intelligence when and where it’s needed. Integration needs to occur not only between internal systems but with external data sources, including sensors, mobile apps, and partner websites. This complex integration architecture must be high performing and have full-time support. Many organizations will embrace Cloud computing. In this rapidly changing environment, employees in all functions will be scrambling to expand their skills. They will need to learn how to use new or updated applications while performing their job functions more effectively. Organizations need to find ways to ease the transition so users readily adopt new applications and ways of working with Big Data and the Cloud. Changing Job Roles While IT executives will be integral players in the game, there will be one person to take the corporation forward: the CIO. This role requires a s[...]

You may have end-users outside of your organization's firewall who need access to E-Business Suite. One way of doing that is to set up a reverse proxy server and a series of network segments separated by firewalls.
The outermost network segment that lies between the internet and an organization's intranet is often called a Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). DMZs are enforced by firewalls and other networking security devices.
Setting up a DMZ
Instructions for deploying EBS 12.2 in a DMZ-based architecture are published here:
Externally-facing EBS products
A subset of EBS products can be deployed for external use, including iSupplier, iRecruitment, iSupport, and others. Many of these products have special rules that must be enabled in the URL Firewall to work properly in external deployments. For a complete list of E-Business Suite products certified for external use, see Section 6 in Note 1375670.1.

Remeber Ausemon? That cool app we told you about back in August that was based off of Pokemon Go? The one that Oracle team members built in only one weekend for Australia's GovHack 2016? The one that used both location services and big data to create an interactive experience for hikers along Canberra's Centenary Trail? Well... it just won the Most Innovative Project Award at GovHack 2016!
When Oracle Australia team members Joel Nation, James Ryles, Chris Flemming, and Damien McAually decided to build Ausemon, they had little idea that eventually, they'd be taking home this prestigious honor. In a competition that included projects such as a chatbot for job seekers that used the power of IBM Watson, a giant flamethrower / art piece that incorporated government data to visually represent the spread of Australian wildfires, and a roulette wheel that suggested local points of interest to Canberra's tourists, Ausemon, built with Oracle Mobile Cloud Service, Application Container Cloud Service and Database Cloud Service, prevailed! Considering the ingenuity of some of the competing entries, this accomplishment is worth noting, and celebrating!
So congratulations Chris, Damien, James and Joel! A fantastic job, and a fantastic mobile app!

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 07:04:00 +0000Oracle versions numbers can be very long. Complicating matters further, different product families within Oracle use the version hierarchy differently. This can make it confusing to determine whether a specific product update has been certified with Oracle E-Business Suite. Specifically, a customer recently asked whether it was acceptable to apply the Oracle Access Manager 184.108.40.206.8 update to their OAM instance that was integrated with EBS 12.1.3. They were concerned because our OAM integration documentation for that combination explicitly specified compatibility with OAM 220.127.116.11.0. The OAM team uses the fifth digit for Bundle Patches, Patch Set Updates (PSU) and Security Patch Updates (SPU). In this particular case, the fifth-level digit in the Oracle Access Manager version is not relevant. In other words, the customer could apply OAM 18.104.22.168.8 because it was covered by the OAM 22.214.171.124.0 certification. For example, all of the following OAM updates will work with EBS 12.1.3: OAM 126.96.36.199.0 (documented certification) OAM 188.8.131.52.1 OAM 184.108.40.206.2 OAM 220.127.116.11.3 OAM 18.104.22.168.4 OAM 22.214.171.124.5 OAM 126.96.36.199.6 OAM 188.8.131.52.7 OAM 184.108.40.206.161018 This is sometimes shown in our documentation in either of the following ways: OAM 220.127.116.11 OAM 18.104.22.168.x The absence of a fifth-digit or the presence of an 'X' in the fifth digit's place means any fifth-digit level updates may be applied to an OAM environment integrated with EBS 12.1.3 without requiring a new certification. This applies to all environments, including test and production.

This question came up a couple of times from users so I figured I'll document how to achieve a layout that shows a list of items and allows you to pick an item from this list to show the details of this item on the same page.
The default layout that ABCS creates is a list on one page with the ability to select an item and go see the details or edit that record on another page.
To combine the two into a single page, start from the edit or the details page that ABCS created.
On this page you then add the table or list for the same object, and set the link on a field to do the edit or details - this basically means that you'll do a navigation to the same page.
If you now run the page you'll be able click items in the table and see their details on the same page.
Here is a quick demo of how it is done:
width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/K9EgUGmicyw" frameborder="0">
Note that if you want this to be the default view that people see when navigating to your app - just update the navigation menu of your application to reflect this.

(image) MS16-104: Security update for Internet Explorer: September 13, 2016 (KB3185319) breaks the JRE (oaj2se.exe) download function in Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 and 12.2. This issue occurs with IE 11 on Windows 7, 8.1, and 10.
Expected behaviour: If an end-user does not have the required JRE plug-in release installed on their desktop client, a dialog box appears, asking whether they wish to download it from the EBS server. When the end-user confirms the download, the oaj2se.exe file downloads and runs.
Incorrect behaviour after the installation of KB3185319: When the end-user confirms the download via the dialog box, oaj2se.exe (the JRE) will not download.
How to fix this problem
Microsoft has published separate fixes for this issue for Windows 7, 8.1, and 10. The appropriate patch must be installed on all affected end-user desktop clients:
If an end-user has installed KB3185319 but is unable to install the fix, end-users may work around the problem by entering the file's URL in Internet Explorer's address bar. For example:
