A new certification was released simultaneously with the E-Business Suite 12.1.2 Maintenance Pack
last month: the use of BPEL 10.1.3.5 with E-Business Suite 12. But before we jump into the details of that certification, it's useful to characterize the two major options for SOA-related integrations for Oracle E-Business Suite:
OPTION 1. Custom integrations using the Oracle Application Server (SOA) Adapter for Oracle Applications
- Custom integrations using the Oracle Application Server (SOA) Adapter for Oracle Applications
- Prebuilt SOA integrations for E-Business Suite using BPEL Process Manager
you'd like to use SOA Suite to develop your own custom integrations
with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12, you can run the latest SOA
Suite version: e.g. 10.1.3.5, 220.127.116.11, or higher.
includes the use of the SOA Suite's SOA Adapter for E-Business Suite.
The Fusion Middleware division's documentation is a little inconsistent
on this point, but this product is also referred to as the Oracle
Fusion Middleware Adapter for Oracle Applications. The Version 18.104.22.168.0 prerequisites
for this adapter are:
E-Business Suite Release 11i with OWF.G.Rollup 7; or,
Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.0
enable the "Native E-Business Suite Connectivity using J2EE Data
- Oracle E-Business Suite
Release 11i with FND Rollup 6; or,
- Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12
If you're using the Oracle Fusion
Middleware Adapter for Oracle Applications to build your own custom
integrations with the E-Business Suite, there are no additional
E-Business Suite dependencies. These are custom integrations that you
will develop yourself. Your custom integrations will run against the
E-Business Suite standard web services published in the Integration

OPTION 2. Using prebuilt E-Business Suite 12 BPEL business processes
Six E-Business Suite Release 12 product teams have developed their own prebuilt BPEL business processes:
- Oracle Price Protection (DPP)
- Complex Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (CMRO/AHL)
- Oracle Transportation Management (WMS, WSH, PO)
- Supply Chain Trading Connector (CLN)
- Advanced Supply Chain Planning (MSC)
- Product Information Management (PIM/EGO)
prebuilt BPEL processes have been certified with Oracle BPEL Process
Manager 10g version 10.1.3.5 (in Oracle SOA Suite 10.1.3.5). These
prebuilt BPEL processes are certified with Oracle E-Business Suite
Release 12.1.1 and higher.
