JRE 1.7.0_291 Certified with EBS Releases 12.2 and 12.1

The Java Runtime Environment 1.7.0_291 (7u291) on the JRE 7 codeline is now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.2 and 12.1. Note that Oracle strongly recommends that you migrate to JRE 8 using Java Web Start now.  As JRE 7 has reached end of life, this release is not available through the usual public download sites.  This update is available for Oracle E-Business Suite customers during the extended support period of your EBS release from My Oracle Support as Patch 32140648. You should only apply this update if you have a dependency on using JRE 7. This article answers some questions you may have on the subject. Should I apply this JRE 7 update? If you have a client tier that can only run JRE 7,  you must use Java Deployment Technology from JRE 8 to launch JRE 7. This is a requirement because JRE updates since JRE 1.7.0_161 have not included Java Deployment Technology. To stay current with critical fixes provided by the Java team, you should uptake the latest JRE 7 update, as well as the latest JRE 8 update. Additional guidance on such scenarios can be found in our recently published My Oracle Support note, FAQ: Essentials of Java Usage in Oracle E-Business Suite (MOS Note 2510500.1). How do I get support adopting this latest Java CPU? If you are using Java Web Start and require assistance with applying this CPU, you can log a service request for assistance from the Java Support organization. For those of you still in transition to Java Web Start, refer to the following in our recently published My Oracle Support note, FAQ: Essentials of Java Usage in Oracle E-Business Suite (MOS Note 2510500.1): Question 4: My organization is transitioning our Oracle E-Business Suite environments to Java Web Start. What if we encounter any issues with the Java Plug-in during this period? Where are the JRE 7 requirements for EBS documented? Full requirements for using Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.2 and 12.1 with JRE 7 are listed in the following documents: Deploying Sun JRE (Native Plug-in) for Windows Clients in Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 (MOS Note 393931.1) Upgrading OracleAS 10g Forms and Reports in Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 (MOS Note 437878.1) References FAQ: Essentials of Java Usage in Oracle E-Business Suite (MOS Note 2510500.1) Using Java Web Start with Oracle E-Business Suite (MOS Note 2188898.1) Upgrading JRE Plugin with Oracle Applications R12 (MOS Note 393931.1) Recommended Browsers for Oracle Applications 12 (MOS Note 389422.1) Related Articles JRE 1.8.0_281 Certified with EBS Releases 12.2 and 12.1 Important New FAQ for Java Usage in EBS Migrate to Java Web Start from Java Plug-In Now Availability of Multiple EBS Forms Sessions with Java Web Start MS16-104 Security Update for IE Breaks EBS JRE Download

JRE 1.8.0_281 Certified with EBS Releases 12.2 and 12.1

We are pleased to announce that the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.8.0_281 (8u281) on the JRE 8 codeline is now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2.  This update is available with Patch 32140627.  This article answers some questions you may have on the subject. Is it a requirement to use Java Web Start with this JRE update? While it is not a prerequisite to use Java Web Start for this latest Java CPU, please take another note of our previous guidance about moving to Java Web Start right away, and particularly ahead of September 2020.   You should uptake this latest Java CPU regardless of whether you are currently using Java Web Start or Java Plug-in on your client tier. Note:  September 2020 was an important deadline for you if you are still using the Java Plug-in. Oracle Java team's plans to continue shipping the components required to launch Java applets on Internet Explorer 11 using Java Plug-in, and Oracle E-Business Suite Support team's ability to help customers still using Java Plugin are confirmed only through September 2020. Beyond this date, it will be increasingly complicated to receive any new fixes for Oracle E-Business Suite issues specific to Java Plug-in. How do I get support adopting this latest Java CPU? If you are using Java Web Start and require assistance with applying this CPU, you can log a service request for assistance from the Java Support organization.

OA Framework 12.2.7 Bundle 11 Available

Web-based content in Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 is supported by the Oracle Application Framework (also known as OA Framework, OAF, or FWK) user interface libraries and associated infrastructure. We periodically release OAF updates to fix performance, security, and stability issues. How do updates work? These updates are provided in two formats: cumulative Release Update Packs (RUPs), and cumulative Bundle Patches (BPs) that can be applied on top of the RUPs. In this context, cumulative means that the latest RUP or BP includes all the updates released previously. OAF bundles may be applied to the specified EBS release only, and are not compatible with other EBS releases. For example, the patch listed here is for EBS Release 12.2.7 and cannot be applied to any other EBS release. What's available now? The latest OAF update for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2.7 is now available. All Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2.7 users should apply this patch. Future OAF patches for EBS Release 12.2.7 will require this patch as a prerequisite. Oracle Application Framework (FWK) Release 12.2.7 Bundle 11 (Patch 31667105:R12.FWK.C) What's new in this update? As well as all the fixes that were released in previous Release 12.2.7 bundle patches, this latest patch also includes fixes for the following issues: When exporting table data to a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, invalid data is exported if there are switcher columns inside a flow layout. A personalization setting of 'Row Navigation Policy' to 'page' is not honored in LOV tables. Text imported from a file into the Message Rich Text Editor loses its original formatting when it undergoes its AntiSamy API check. If an XML file contains date facet metadata, an MDSRuntimeException is thrown on page load. Form validation fails for the last day of the Hijrah calendar. When the Export option is selected for an advanced table, a ClassCastException is thrown. You can also refer to the Readme for Patch 31667105 for additional information.

When a submit action is performed on a page with a table that has more than 100 columns, the global header Home link/icon is displayed under the username popup menu. If a user navigates using the Personalize Region link when the Personalization Workbench UI is disabled, the Personalization Workbench button is still displayed on Personalize Region page.

Oracle Database 19c Now Certified with EBS 12.2 and 12.1 for Oracle Solaris on x86-64

Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2 (12.2.3 and later) and 12.1.3 are now certified with Oracle Database 19c on Oracle on Solaris x86-64 as a database tier only platform. The Database 19c certified operating systems for this platform are Solaris 11.3 and 11.4. What is a Database Tier Only Platform Certification? E-Business Suite certified platforms are platforms for which both the application and database tiers of E-Business Suite are supported and for which EBS provides a release package (i.e., Rapid Install). The term E-Business Suite certified platform is synonymous with fully certified platform or Rapid Install supported platform. A database tier only platform (also known as a split tier configuration) certification is an EBS database certification on a platform for which there is a database release but no corresponding EBS release package. In this case, the application tier runs on a different fully certified platform from the database tier only platform. For a complete list of certified platforms, refer to My Oracle Support's certification tab.

Data Masking Now Certified for EBS 12.1.3 with DB 12.1.0.2 or 11.2.0.4 and EM 13cR4

We're pleased to announce the certification of the EBS 12.1.3 Data Masking Template with Oracle Database 12.1.0.2 or 11.2.0.4 and EM 13cR4.  The updated template included with this certification contains bug fixes and an optional post-masking script.  The optional post-masking script provides synchronization between FND and HR user data. The updated template is certified with EM 13cR4 and prior releases of EM 13c per the documented guidelines.   You can use the Oracle Data Masking and Subsetting Pack with Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c (EM 13c) to mask sensitive data in cloned (non-production) EBS 12.1.3 environments. To use EM 13c to mask data in a cloned EBS 12.1.3 environment with Database 12.1.0.2 or 11.2.0.4, use the following instructions and template:    Using Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3 Data Masking Template with Oracle Database 11gR2 or 12cR1 and Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c (MOS Note 2216575.1 ) EBS 12.1.3 DATA MASKING PACK FOR EM 13C - V1.1.13 (Patch 31645549) What does masking do in an EBS environment? Due to data dependencies, scrambling E-Business Suite data is a non-trivial task.  The data needs to be scrubbed in such a way that allows the application to continue to function.   Based upon the Oracle E-Business Suite architecture and sensitive columns, application data masking with the certified EBS Data Masking Template does the following: De-identifies the data:  Scrambles identifiers of individuals, also known as personally identifiable information (PII).  Examples include information such as name, account, and address. Masks sensitive data:  Masks data that, if associated with PII, would cause privacy concerns.  Examples include compensation, health and employment information.   Maintains data validity:  Provides a functional application.

JRE 1.7.0_281 Certified with EBS Releases 12.2 and 12.1

The Java Runtime Environment 1.7.0_281 (7u281) on the JRE 7 codeline is now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.2 and 12.1. Note that Oracle strongly recommends that you migrate to JRE 8 using Java Web Start now.  As JRE 7 has reached end of life, this release is not available through the usual public download sites.  This update is available for Oracle E-Business Suite customers during the extended support period of your EBS release from My Oracle Support as Patch 31856327. You should only apply this update if you have a dependency on using JRE 7. This article answers some questions you may have on the subject. Should I apply this JRE 7 update? If you have a client tier that can only run JRE 7,  you must use Java Deployment Technology from JRE 8 to launch JRE 7. This is a requirement because JRE updates since JRE 1.7.0_161 have not included Java Deployment Technology. To stay current with critical fixes provided by the Java team, you should uptake the latest JRE 7 update, as well as the latest JRE 8 update. Additional guidance on such scenarios can be found in our recently published My Oracle Support note, FAQ: Essentials of Java Usage in Oracle E-Business Suite (MOS Note 2510500.1). How do I get support adopting this latest Java CPU? If you are using Java Web Start and require assistance with applying this CPU, you can log a service request for assistance from the Java Support organization.

Is it a requirement to use Java Web Start with this JRE update? While it is not a prerequisite to use Java Web Start for this latest Java CPU, please take another note of our previous guidance about moving to Java Web Start right away, and particularly ahead of September 2020.   You should uptake this latest Java CPU regardless of whether you are currently using Java Web Start or Java Plug-in on your client tier. Note:  September 2020 was an important deadline for you if you are still using the Java Plug-in. Oracle Java team's plans to continue shipping the components required to launch Java applets on Internet Explorer 11 using Java Plug-in, and Oracle E-Business Suite Support team's ability to help customers still using Java Plugin are confirmed only through September 2020. Beyond this date, it will be increasingly complicated to receive any new fixes for Oracle E-Business Suite issues specific to Java Plug-in. How do I get support adopting this latest Java CPU?

These updates are provided in two formats: cumulative Release Update Packs (RUPs), and cumulative Bundle Patches (BPs) that can be applied on top of the RUPs. In this context, cumulative means that the latest RUP or BP includes all the updates released previously. OAF bundles may be applied to the specified EBS release only, and are not compatible with other EBS releases. For example, the patch listed here is for EBS Release 12.2.10 and cannot be applied to any other release. What's available now? The first OAF update for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2.10 is now available. All Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2.10 users should apply this patch. Future OAF patches for EBS Release 12.2.10 will require this patch as a prerequisite. Oracle Application Framework (FWK) Release 12.2.10 Bundle 1 (Patch 31947046:R12.FWK.C) What's new in this update? This bundle patch includes various enhancements and fixes. You may refer to the Readme for Patch 31947046 for further information. Where is this update documented?
