Plans for Certifying Microsoft Office 2013 with E-Business Suite

Microsoft Office 2013

Since Microsoft's release of Microsoft Office 2013 there have naturally been questions about Oracle's certification plans for Office 2013 and EBS.

Click for More Information

See 'Plans for Certifying Microsoft Office 2013 with E-Business Suite' for details of what's planned.

What Are The Plans for Certifying Windows 8 And IE 10 With E-Business Suite?

Windows 8

Microsoft Windows 8 was recently released with Internet Explorer 10 as its default browser.  

Our current plans for Windows 8 and IE 10

We plan to certify Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11.5.10.2, 12.0, and 12.1 with Microsoft Windows 8 and Internet Explorer 10.

When will Win8 and IE 10 be certified with EBS?

Oracle's Revenue Recognition rules prohibit us from discussing certification and release dates, but the latest updates will be published in Steven Chan's Oracle E-Business Suite Technology blog - read the full article regarding these certifications 'Plans for Certifying Windows 8 and IE 10 with E-Business Suite' for details.

New Java 6 and 7 Certifications

Java Download

New certifications have been announced for the following Java versions:

  • Java Runtime Environment 7u15 (a.k.a. JRE 7u15-b03) and later updates on the JRE 7 codeline are now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i and 12 for Windows-based desktop clients. 
  • The latest Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0_41 (a.k.a. JRE 6u41-b02) and later updates on the JRE 6 codeline are now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i and 12 for Windows-based desktop clients.  

All JRE 6 and 7 releases are certified with EBS upon release

Our standard policy is that all E-Business Suite customers can apply all JRE updates to end-user desktops from JRE 1.6.0_03 and later updates on the 1.6 codeline, and from JRE 7u10 and later updates on the JRE 7 codeline.  We test all new JRE 1.6 and JRE 7 releases in parallel with the JRE development process, so all new JRE 1.6 and 7 releases are considered certified with the E-Business Suite on the same day that they're released by our Java team. 

You do not need to wait for a certification announcement before applying new JRE 1.6 or JRE 7 releases to your EBS users' desktops.

If you want to learn more about these certifications and what it means for EBS users read the EBS Technology Blog entries:
