Fusion Concepts: Lookups

Lookups in applications are used to represent a set of codes and their translated meanings. For example, a product team might store the values 'Y' and 'N' in a column in a table, but when displaying those values they would want to display "Yes" or "No" (or their translated equivalents) instead. Each set of related codes is identified as a lookup type.

Lookups are codes that are defined in the global FND_LOOKUP_VALUES table, which is striped into multiple virtual tables using a VIEW_APPLICATION_ID column. Every product team who owns the lookups specific to their product provides a database view and ADFbc artifacts built on the top of the database view.

Fusion Apps Release 7 (including JDeveloper) Now Available On eDelivery

Fusion Applications Release 7 has been published on eDelivery, and with it comes JDeveloper/ADF 11.1.1.7.1 and the matching Fusion Applications Companion. Search for the media pack for Release 7 or just follow this link for the Win64 media pack.

Downloading Older Versions of JDeveloper Explained

Today is Labor Day in the United States, so while our US-based team members (and readers, I hope) enjoy a long weekend, here is a quick tip to start off the week for everyone else.

As explained in previous blog posts, eDelivery is the site where you can download the JDeveloper version and Fusion Applications Companion for your version of Fusion Applications.  There are currently two versions available, Release 5 and Release 6.

eDelivery Download of Fusion Applications

The general policy is that the two most recent versions of the Fusion Applications suite (including JDeveloper/Companion) will be on eDelivery.  So when Release 7 comes out, expect for Release 5 to no longer be on eDelivery.

What if you need an earlier version?  It is still available, but you need to follow the steps in My Oracle Support document 1071023.1 to request access to it.

Announcement: How-To Series Explaining Customizations Step By Step

Yesterday we officially launched our new YouTube channel.  Today we are announcing another initiative that we have been working on for a while: to help you learn common customization tasks, we are going to publish a series of detailed How-To documents with lots of screenshots.  Many of these will also be the script for a YouTube video, giving you the choice to see it in action or go through the steps yourself guided by a PDF document.

The focus of the initial set of How-Tos will be JDeveloper/ADF customizations, but over time we will expand into other areas.  Today's first document is meant to get everyone up to the point where a JDeveloper environment is up and running: a white paper that shows you how to set up JDeveloper, configure the integrated WLS domain, and make a very, very simple customization work.

As always we are looking for your feedback.  Please let us know whether this is helpful for your work or learning, and what use cases you would like to see us document in these How-Tos.

Announcement: JDeveloper for Fusion Apps Release 6 Now Available

JDeveloper/ADF 11.1.1.6.4 and the matching Fusion Applications Companion are now available for download from eDelivery.  Search for the media pack for Release 6 or just follow this link for the Win64 media pack (this part of the download is platform-independent).  Please note that as with all Fusion Applications releases, it is important that you use the matching version of the development tools, so don't install this as an upgrade to your earlier version if the version of Fusion Applications you are developing for is not Release 6.

After installing the IDE (see part 1 and part 2 of our blog post series explaining the steps), you need to patch the JDeveloper MW_HOME with one additional patch for bug 16790427, available from My Oracle Support, to resolve Out of Memory errors when trying to customize certain artifacts.
