DSTv27 Timezone Patches Available for E-Business Suite 12.1

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 07:05:00 +0000

(image) If your E-Business Suite Release environment is configured to support Daylight Saving Time (DST) or international time zones, it's important to keep your timezone definition files up-to-date. They were last changed in November 2015 and released as DSTv25.

DSTv27 is now available and certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1. The DSTv27 update includes the timezone information from the IANA tzdata 2016f.  It is cumulative: it includes all previous Oracle DST updates. 

Is Your Apps Environment Affected?

When a country or region changes DST rules or their time zone definitions, your Oracle E-Business Suite environment will require patching if:

  • Your Oracle E-Business Suite environment is located in the affected country or region OR
  • Your Oracle E-Business Suite environment is located outside the affected country or region but you conduct business or have customers or suppliers in the affected country or region

The latest DSTv27 timezone definition file is cumulative and includes all DST changes released in earlier time zone definition files. DSTv27 includes changes to the following timezones since the DSTv24 release:

  • Asia/Novosibirsk
  • America/Cayman
  • Asia/Chita
  • Asia/Tehran,
  • Haiti,
  • Palestine,
  • Azerbaijan,
  • Chile
  • America/Caracas
  • Asia/Magadan

What Patches Are Required?

In case you haven't been following our previous time zone or Daylight Saving Time (DST)-related articles, international timezone definitions for E-Business Suite environments are captured in a series of patches for the database and application tier servers in your environment. The actual scope and number of patches that need to be applied depend on whether you've applied previous DST or timezone-related patches. Some sysadmins have remarked to me that it generally takes more time to read the various timezone documents than it takes to apply these patches, but your mileage may vary.

Proactive backports of DST upgrade patches to all Oracle E-Business Suite tiers and platforms are not created and supplied by default. If you need this DST release and an appropriate patch is not currently available, raise a service request through support providing a business case with your version requirements.

The following Note identifies the various components in your E-Business Suite environment that may need DST patches:

Pending Certification 

Our certification of this DST timezone patch with Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 is currently underway.

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.   





Bug: Typed One Way Pipeline in Oracle Service Bus / OSB 12.2.1 by Frank Munz

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 07:00:31 +0000

When creating a Service Bus pipeline in JDeveloper 12.2.1 for Oracle Service Bus 12.2.1, based on a typed, one-way business service (either one way WSDL based, or Messaging Service with XML request and XSD type with reply NONE business service) the pipeline won’t correctly use the request message type. It’s annoying because you cannot easily create expressions based on the request type, such as drilling open the $body variable, e.g. for an Order containing a shipping ID. All that is displayed within the pipeline is $body. This happens although the pipeline configuration displays the correct XSD, eg. OrderType.xsd and the correct Type, eg. OrderType. I am quite surprised because this is not a very unusual use case. Anyway I couldn’t find a work around for JDeveloper 12.2.1 (let me know if you know one!). Interestingly, testing a proxy service based on the business service works all right (so maybe the bug slipped in when the pipeline construct was separated from the proxy service? just guessing.) It is possible to work with the good old Service Bus web console /sbconsole. There everything is fine, i.e. the correct structure of the request message is displayed. The working Service Bus console is another indication that the way JDeveloper does it is broken. Read the complete article here.

Microsoft Edge Certified with EBS 12.1 and 12.2

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 18:20:49 +0000

I am very pleased to announce that Microsoft Edge is certified as a new browser for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 and 12.2.  Edge can be used to access EBS Self-Service Web Applications (SSWA) -- i.e. the web-based HTML products in Oracle E-Business Suite that use OA Framework (OAF). EBS Prerequisites for Edge No Windows or desktop patches are needed for enabling Edge compatibility with E-Business Suite 12.1 or 12.2. A small number of E-Business Suite server-side patches are required.  See: Recommended Browsers for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 (Note 389422.1) Can EBS Forms run in Edge? No. Microsoft Edge does not support plug-ins.  For details, see: Microsoft Edge FAQ (Microsoft.com) The Java JRE is a mandatory prerequisite for Forms-based products in E-Business Suite. Since Edge does not support plug-ins, the Java JRE plug-in does not work with this browser.  E-Business Suite products that use Oracle Forms can run on Internet Explorer 11 and Firefox ESR on Windows desktops, and Safari on Mac desktop clients. What about Java Web Start? We are testing prototypes with EBS Forms-based products using Java Web Start.  Once this work is completed, it is likely that it will be possible to run Forms-based products even when using browsers such as Edge.  See: Do E-Business Suite Users Need to Worry About Java 9? This work is going well, and we are currently working on security and polishing user interface issues. I'll post updates on this blog as soon as they're available. Does Edge work with EBS 11i or 12.0? No. You can download existing patches for EBS 11i and 12.0, but these EBS releases are now in Sustaining Support. We do not produce new certifications for products in Sustaining Support.  Your end-users should continue to use IE 11, Firefox ESR, or Safari if you are running EBS 11i or 12.0.

Export and Import Oracle BAM Projects by Waslley Souza

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 06:46:06 +0000

In the real world, you’ll create your Oracle BAM projects in a development environment, and when all is well, you will export it to a test or production environment. Export and import actions are easy to perform using BAMCommand command-line utility. In this post, we will learn how to export Oracle BAM projects from a source environment and then import it to a target environment. Download the sample application: BlogProject.zip. I created an Oracle BAM project called Blog that has Data Object, Business Query, Business Views and Dashboard. First of all, edit the BAMCommand configuration file, defining the information about the source environment. It is located at /soa/bam/bin/BAMCommandConfig.xml. Now you can execute the BAMCommand command-line utility to export your BAM project artifacts. I could export all Oracle BAM objects in the system, but I have other projects and I just want to export the project called Blog. Read the complete article here.

Connecting Stream Explorer and BAM by Waslley Souza

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 06:50:50 +0000

When you are working with Oracle Stream Explorer and you need analytical data about the events, the easiest way is using Oracle Business Activity Monitoring. The connection between the Oracle Stream Explorer and Oracle BAM is simple to create. In this post we will learn how to do this connection using JMS. This is the structure of my CSV file. In the Oracle Stream Explorer, go to the Exploration that you want to use. Click Configure a Target. Complete the form with information about your BAM server and click Finish. This is the necessary setting in Oracle Stream Explorer. Now, go to Oracle WebLogic Server and navigate to JMS Modules. Click BAMJMSSystemResource, and then click New. Create a new Queue with the same information you entered in Oracle Stream Explorer and click Next. Read the complete article here.

Resiliency: Circuit Breaker

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 08:27:47 +0000

Circuit Breaker is a new resiliency feature in 12.2.1 that helps to simplify operations and ensure system stability when downstream endpoints become unavailable. This post is meant to be a quick introduction to this new feature so you can start testing it out. Circuit Breaker overview Circuit Breaker enables you to configure the system to automatically suspend upstream endpoints when a downstream system is down or unreachable from a SOA composite. This prevents faults from building up in the server and relieves you from having to bulk-recover faulted instances. The upstream endpoints are automatically resumed after the downstream endpoint comes back up. The circuit breaker feature works by monitoring downstream system failures and after x number of failures over y minutes (where x and y are configurable) any upstream web service, subscriber, or adapter where the failed messages originated from will be suspended.  For adapters and subscribers the messages will not be lost but will not be processed until the downstream system comes back up. Web Service requests will be rejected and it is up to the client program to handle these failures. Suspended services will show up in the EM dashboard (below),  by clicking on the "Suspended since ..." link another dialog will pop up that will allow you to jump to the error in the Error Hospital and/or re-enable the service.  Once a service is suspended messages are allowed to "trickle" through periodically in order to test the downstream system.  If the downstream invocation succeeds then the upstream service is resumed. Configuration Circuit Breaker can be configured globally and overridden at the downstream endpoint. There may be situations where you don't want downstream failures to cause services to be suspended, in this case you would disable the circuit breaker at the endpoint level, it is also possible to override the number of failures and failure window at the endpoint level. Conversely you can disable globally and enable at the endpoint level.  It is also possible to set the circuit breaker properties on an endpoint when designing the composite in JDev. Global configuration To display the configuration dialog go to SOA Infrastructure -> SOA Administration -> Resiliency Configuration. Read the complete article here.

Minimal Oracle JET Composite Component

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 18:15:47 +0000

Let's say you have a suite of Cloud applications and you want them to display customers in a standardized way:

(image)

If that's your business scenario, then Oracle JET composite components are a perfect fit. Here's what an absolutely minimal Oracle JET composite component looks like: 

(image)

The above is really trivial. Here's the content of "customer.html":

Here's "customer.json":

{
  "properties": {
    "name": {
      "description": "Customer name.",
      "type": "string"
    },
    "city": {
      "description": "Customer location.",
      "type": "string"
    }
  }
}

About the properties above, see the below:

http://www.oracle.com/webfolder/technetwork/jet/jsdocs/oj.Composite.html#metadata

And here's "loader", which connects the above two together and provides "customer" as a new HTML element:

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

In a more complex scenario, you're also able to include CSS stylesheets and business logic defined in JavaScript, as outlined in an earlier blog entry on this topic

OK, now ZIP up that folder, send it to whoever is working on other Cloud applications that need to make use of the "customer" element, which they can use as follows (in e.g., "library") after unzipping that ZIP into the relevant folder in their application:

define(['ojs/ojcore', 'knockout', 'ojs/ojcomposite',
'jet-composites/customer/loader'],
   function (oj, ko) {
      function libraryContentViewModel() {
          var self = this;
          self.customers = [
              {name: 'Billy Bob Thornton', city: 'New York'},
              {name: 'Brad Pitt', city: 'Hollywood'},
              {name: 'Val Kilmer', city: 'Seattle'}
          ];
      }
      return new libraryContentViewModel();
   });

All that the above does is load the "loader", include "ojs/ojcomposite" so that Oracle JET composite components are supported, and define a "customer" array.

Here's the view (e.g., "library.html") of the above viewModel, using the "customer" HTML element provided by the composite component:



That's pretty neat and, guess what, Oracle JET components conform to the Web Components specification, except for the Shadow DOM, which is not supported.




Formatter Improvements in v4.2

The old formatter, the code that’s used to format your code from v1 to version 4.1 was based on some pattern matching code and expressions.

What is SOA 12c ? by Tutorial Diary

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 08:04:30 +0000

Oracle SOA Suite 12c is new version of SOA Suite tool from Oracle. Oracle has introduced lot of new features in this new version. This new version is based upon 4 themes as show below. First two themes (Developer productivity and Industrial SOA) comes as outcome of user/developers feedback and other two themes (Mobile and Cloud) introduced as per industry trend. SOA 12c Themes Developer Productivity This theme is outcome of the community that currently using SOA Suite 11g. Oracle has introduced couple of improvements in this version based upon the feedback from that community. As the name suggest, this theme helps developer to improve their productivity and that comes from the new features introduced. Industrial SOA This theme is also a outcome of the community that currently using SOA Suite 11g. Oracle has introduced couple of improvements in this version based upon the feedback from that community. Mobile & Cloud These themes has been introduced by seeing current industry trend. Currently everyone talking about mobile & cloud enablement that comes under these themes. Major Enhancements in SOA 12c Below are the major enhancements done in this new version (SOA 12c). • Earlier Service Bus is separate tool from SOA Suite tool and we use to have Eclipse as IDE for service bus development. In this 12c version, Service Bus become part of SOA 12c only i.e. we can do Service Bus development using JDeveloper only, there is no need to use Eclipse anymore. • As Service Bus become part of SOA 12c so all the adapters becomes accessible to Service Bus also. • ESS (Enterprise Service Scheduler) is new component introduced in this version that provide scheduling capabilities. • 1 Single Installer has been introduced that can used to install all the components like Database, Weblogic, SOA Suite, Service Bus etc. • MFT (Managed File Transfer) has been introduced that does not come by default with SOA 12c but this can be downloaded as separate package that helps to do file transfer. • Free License for developer on single machine.

Prepare Now For Your SQL OCA Certification - NEW

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 19:42:19 +0000

Earn a core OCA credential on your path to Database Administrator or PL/SQL Developer certifications, by passing exam 1Z0-071 Oracle Database SQL. Released earlier this year, this certification fills a gap in the offerings that fulfill the SQL prerequisite in core Database Administrator and PL/SQL Developer paths. Until now, these offerings included two non-proctored SQL fundamentals exams (1Z0-051 and 1Z0-061) that do not result in certification by themselves and a more in depth SQL Expert exam (1Z0-047) that covers topic areas that may not show up very often in the day to day activities of a SQL Developer. SQL knowledge is essential to the Database Administrator role as well as that of the PL/SQL Developer. The new Oracle Database SQL Certified Associate credential gives a broader, more comprehensive view of SQL without dipping into more difficult, seldom-used features. Passing this exam is a win/win if you are pursuing a path that includes a SQL requirement. You earn two valuable certifications. Even if your plans don't currently include an additional layer of certification, this credential proves fluency in and a solid understanding of SQL language, data modeling and using SQL to create and manipulate tables in an Oracle Database.

OOW16: Daily Digest - Thursday, Sept.22

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 13:20:36 +0000

Fall is here and today is the last day of the Oracle OpenWorld 2016. It had been an amazing 5 days for our customers, partners and us. If you missed the keynotes, you can watch them on-demand. There are still two great sessions from Oracle Linux and Virtualization teams:

Hands-on Labs: Systems Management with Spacewalk [HOL6546](image)

8:00 a.m. | Hotel Nikko - Carmel (3rd Floor)  

Avi Miller, Oracle

Oracle Linux includes support for Spacewalk, an open source system management tool for Linux systems used in commercial solutions such as SUSE Manager and Red Hat Satellite Server. This feature allows organizations to leverage their existing Spacewalk knowledge and workflows with Oracle Linux. In this hands-on lab learn from Oracle experts how to get up and running with Spacewalk and Oracle Linux.

Oracle VM Templates Best Practices for Rapid Oracle Database Deployment [CON7430]

Thursday, Sep 22, 12:00 p.m. | Marriott Marquis - Nob Hill A/B 

John Priest, Director Product Management - Oracle VM, Oracle

Simon Coter, Principal Product Manager Oracle VM & VirtualBox, Oracle

Oracle VM's application-driven architecture is designed to enable rapid application deployment. Using Oracle VM Templates, sophisticated applications such as Oracle Database or Oracle Real Application Clusters can be deployed in minutes—10x faster than with other solutions. With more than 100 preconfigured, pretested templates for Oracle applications, Oracle has done the heavy lifting for you, enabling the virtualization of complex applications with near-zero application knowledge. In this session interact directly with Oracle experts with deep development experience, learn more use cases for Oracle VM Templates, and get in-depth knowledge to easily deploy Oracle Database 12c and Oracle RAC using Oracle VM Templates on the latest Oracle VM releases.

Look forward to seeing you in our Thursday sessions and have a great trip back.





What about to upgrade to Oracle SOA Suite 12.2.1? by Rolando Carrasco

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 07:55:02 +0000

This is my last post of the year. Strangely this was the year with less posts here in Oracle Radio. And not only that, but I started to do it in English. Since 2007 I’ve been feeding this blog in Spanish, but for some specific posts I just decided to do it in English to get to a greater audience. So what about to upgrade to Oracle SOA Site 12.2.1? Is the name of this post. For the last 7 weeks or so I’ve been upgrading, together with one of my colleagues, around 5 domains of SOA Suite 12.1.3 to 12.2.1. It’s been quite an effort, because those very same domains, were upgraded from 11.1.1.7, so there is a lot of history in them. They’ve been serving a large SOA implementation, a mission critical implementation that is part of the core for this institution. So the challenge was an important one. To fail and not be able to rollback was not an option, the maintenance window for the production environment was not that large. But I insist: what about upgrading it? Does it really work? Is it well documented? Why doing so?  Well, it is definitely documented by Oracle. It really works. That is the reality. Doing this must be something to have in mind for anyone using 12.1.3.x, I really encourage you to do it. Do not hesitate to do it. It will give you much more stability to your SOA platform. If you are using Oracle BAM 12c, then this is something you need to do, a lot of bugs were solved with this upgrade. Same thing with BPM. The UI has changed for the ADF ALTA version, which is very clean and even elegant, I would say: If you are already using Oracle Cloud products, this will be very familiar for you. Oracle Enterprise Manger – Fusion Middleware Control has been always an slow UI. Now is not the exception, but seems to be little less slow. But it is definitive much more intuitive and easy to use, take a look at this: Read the complete article here.

I don’t like the Mediator by Luc Gorissen

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 07:12:51 +0000

Ok, so there you have it: I just don’t like the Mediator. I don’t really know why. But now that it’s in the open, let’s discuss it. I often see a pattern where a composite with a synchronous operation is implemented with a Mediator and BPEL component: I think that in most of these cases, it would be better to either leave out the Mediator component completely. Or replace it with a BPEL component that is run transient, i.e. in-memory. This article discusses some of the aspects around using a Mediator. We need to discuss… Some of the reasons to avoid a Mediator: It adds another ‘technology’ to your developer’s skillset It adds more tasks for system administration It’s bad for performance Arguments in favor of using the Mediator: One end-point for a composite with multiple operations One external interface hides composite-internal changes Let’s go. Yet another developer skill As developer has to learn a lot when trying to master the SOA Suite completely. Learning all the aspects of BPEL is already a big task. And the Mediator is yet another skill. Arguably, not a big skill. Even more, developers are often inclined to say ‘ah … not hard at all’. But … are you as a developer familiar with all the features of Mediators? Like the resequencing rules? The routing rules priorities? When to specify sequential and parallel execution? I like simple things. More tasks for system administration Like for the developer, the Mediator also introduces new topics for the system administrator: purging and tuning. Both should not be a big issue, as enough information is available on how to handle them . But … does your system administrator know that there is a Mediator engine that needs to be tuned? Just challenge your system administrators to have a look at  Mediator tuning and ask them how they handled it. Performance At the beginning of the article, it was argued that a Mediator with synchronous operation(s) can be replaced with a BPEL component. That BPEL component can then be made transient, i.e. it will run in memory. That would save the DB access by the Mediator engine. Read the complete article here.

Some Exciting Customer Presentations!

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 22:47:51 +0000

While I always enjoy getting in front of customers to present on some new and really cool functionality in Enterprise Manager Cloud Control, it's even better to be in the audience listening to actual customers doing just that!  There are a couple of those presentations coming up on Thursday this week at OOW.  Unfortunately I can't be there to listen in, but if you're interested in learning how to provide scalable and flexible patching solutions, make sure you get along to these two presentations and learn directly from these customers! Pivot from Manual to Scalable with Oracle Database Lifecycle Management Pack [CON2494] This presentation is on at 10:45 am on Thursday in Moscone South - 305.  Sarah Brydon and Ashwin Vaidya, both from Paypal, are the presenters. Are your skilled DBAs spending time installing software and applying patches instead of growing your business? Come to this session to learn how PayPal moved from manual execution of homegrown scripts for Oracle Real Application Clusters installs and patching to leveraging the power of Oracle Database Lifecycle Management Pack. Oracle Real Application Clusters provisioning moved from days to an hour per node, with improved build consistency and quality. Security and reliability patching scaled to deliver patches across the enterprise faster and more consistently than ever before. The session includes best practices for implementing provisioning and discusses PayPal’s experience with patching plans and the new fleet maintenance feature in Oracle Enterprise Manager 12.1.0.5 and 13c. Database Patch at 1,000 Scale: Nationwide’s Oracle Enterprise Manager Fleet Maintenance Odyssey [CON2260] This session is on at 12 noon on Thursday, in the same room (Moscone South - 305).  The presenters this time are Gary Henderson and John Norman, both from Nationwide. Database currency is becoming an increasingly important part of every company’s security posture, but there are significant challenges with patching at scale—say, 1,200 databases. This session is on how Nationwide followed Oracle’s best practice (out-of-place patching) and used Oracle Enterprise Manager’s command-line interface with the new switch database capability to accomplish patching at scale and position the company for forthcoming fleet maintenance. So there you have it - two fantastic presentations, learning from real customer experiences.  It doesn't come much more realistic than that! [...]

James Gosling on NetBeans and Apache

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 13:36:10 +0000

To a packed room at NetBeans Day 2016, at the start of JavaOne 2016, James Gosling participated in a discussion panel, where he reflected on the history of NetBeans and shared his thoughts on the plans to move to Apache.

Below, watch the final minutes, where he focuses specifically on the NetBeans plans in relation to Apache:

width="420" height="315" frameborder="2" style="border: 1px solid black;" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/mJjMvQocuP4"><span id="XinhaEditingPostion"></span>

Here's the view on the room from his perspective, in a photo taken by Michael Nacimento (sitting next to James):

(image)

Thanks to Victor Duran, who made the video of James's words above. 

There was a funny moment earlier in the session, where I had explained the move of NetBeans towards Apache, which I ended by saying: "We are carefully optimistic that everything will work out and our move to Apache will succeed." At that point James threw up his hands in exasperation, turned to me, and said: "Oh, have a little faith! We'll work through the Apache process!" :-)
