December in Review
By Richard Bingham-Oracle on Jan 06, 2014
The blog series on how to integrate with Fusion Applications using web services focused on using PL/SQL as well as .NET via both HttpWebRequest and WebReference. Similarly the Fusion Concepts series continued by explaining the essentials for both Lookups and Profiles for those newer to Oracle Applications.YouTube Channel videos were posted on more custom BI reporting, using profile options, setting up conditional formatting, and using custom security - an area that will have its own playlist soon!
From Other Teams
Our colleagues in Support provided the latest installment of their Customizations Advisor Webcast (available for replay), and we summarized the great content for Fusion Applications Developers on the Oracle Learning Library in this post.
The Apps User Experience folks posted several interesting articles in December, including insights into how Oracle Social Network is embedded in Fusion Applications and how they're using real feedback in developing features to support tailoring the Simplified UI in future releases. They also worked closely with the ADF Product Management team on a new set of ADF Mobile design patterns and guidelines which were recently released in a rich wiki format here.
OTN provided some great new OnDemand content in December, including ADF Development - Web, Mobile and Beyond, and Going Mobile with ADF: Programmatically Invoking SOAP Web Services with Complex Types. So whilst not Fusion Applications specific, it's interesting new content for us working in this field.
Also in the integration realm, a new OTN podcast covering Oracle SOA B2B Integration may also be of interest, especially to on-premises developers. Also a new Oracle Support KM note that explains all the Oracle Fusion CRM Web Services is now available (Doc ID 1354841.1).
With the holidays December was a bit quieter for events, however in the UK the Tech13 conference was held by the Oracle User Group with over 1000 attendees from around Europe. Our blog post here summarizes the highlights and their great infographic below gives a nice overview.
