Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 comes with a small number of prebuilt portlets that can be used with Oracle WebCenter and Oracle Portal: Applications Navigator, Favorites, and Worklist. These portlets are JSR-168 and WSRP-compliant and can be used with third-party web development tools.
While those portlets do what you'd expect, you might need more options for embedding EBS functionality into your custom corporate websites. That's possible -- you can create your own custom portlets using the EBS R12 Portlet Generator.
The Portlet Generator lets you convert existing standalone Oracle Application Framework regions into portlets. These converted portlets can be integrated into any JSR-168/WSRP-compatible portal.
As you might expect, there are very specific conditions in which you can extract OA Framework regions into standalone portlets. For more information about prerequisites and tips on using the Portlet Generator, see the Developer Tools section (Chapter 16) in the following guide:
