Fusion Configurator Engine (FCE)
The FCE uses constraint programming technology to provide configuration capabilities that are easier to use and more powerful than those of the Original Configurator Engine.
Desupport of DHTML User Interfaces and the Limited Edition of Oracle Configurator Developer
DHTML User Interfaces are not supported, and the limited edition of Oracle Configurator Developer is not available. Support for More Node and Text IDs. The CZ schema has been enhanced to greatly increase the number of Model nodes and translatable text records that can be created over the life of a database instance.
Maintenance of State for Dynamic Tree UI
The Dynamic Tree navigation style now maintains its state of expansion when adding or deleting component instances, and, after navigation to a new node, automatically expands to display the currently selected node and its children.
Performance Improvement by Model JVM Routing
Previously, Oracle Configurator cached all Models in a session on every JVM running on the web server, overloading the JVMs. Now, you can route a specific Model to a specific JVM. This can reduce the memory footprint and improve runtime performance.
Integration of Agile Variant Management with Oracle Configurator
Agile Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is now integrated with Oracle Configurator. Implementors can import a BOM to Oracle Configurator Developer to define additional UIs and configuration rules. Users of Agile Variant Management can invoke Oracle Configurator to configure a model as a Variant BOM.
Processing Page for Long-Running FCE Actions
You can now choose to display a message page when the processing of the Auto-Complete and Finish actions exceed a specified time period. You can specify the messages that appear on the page. This feature is only available for Models that use the Fusion Configurator Engine (FCE).
