Subledger Accounting (SLA) is a rule-based accounting engine that centralizes accounting for Oracle E-Business Suite products in R12. Subledger Accounting is not a separate product in itself.
Together with the new ledger support, Subledger Accounting enables support of multiple accounting requirements concurrently in a single instance. Different accounting regulations can be satisfied by maintaining and applying different sets of rules to different sets of transactions, or accounting for the same transaction with multiple methods. Subledger accounting options define how journal entries are generated from subledger transactions at the subledger application level.
Note: SLA replaces the different accounting engines available in 11i e.g., the AP accounting engine, FA accounting engine, Global Accounting Engine (AX), and so forth.
This white paper that was recently updated is very comprehensive and describes the setup of the Payables Subledger Accounting feature that is available in Release 12. It includes a step by step guide on how to configure the SLA feature for business transactions.
Payables SLA allows users to personalize their accounting setup according to business needs and this updated white paper now includes 8 test cases together with setup demonstration and results.
Find out all about SLA setup and configuration by reviewing the white paper:

The Subledger Period Close Exceptions Report lists all accounting events and
journal entries that fail period close validation. This report helps in
resolving exceptions quickly so that exceptions are not left to slow down the
period-end close. It is automatically
submitted by General Ledger when closing a GL period if there are unprocessed
accounting events or non-transferred journal entries.
You can also generate the Subledger Period Close Exceptions Report through a concurrent request as follows:
Nav: Control -> Requests -> Run
Execute the Subledger Period Close Exceptions Report

"Supporting References” enables users to enter additional information for the “Journal Entry Header” and “Journal Entry Lines” that can be used for analytical purposes. This functionality was earlier known as “Analytical Criteria”. In 11i, additional data was interfaced to GL on the journals using “Descriptive Flexfields” whereas using this feature in R12, customers can create customized sources as ‘Supporting References’ and pass values into those sources from Subledgers like AP / AR / PA, etc.
