Mobile Apps for Oracle E-Business Suite

Crosspost from the mobile apps blog.  TL;DR Oracle E-Business Suite is now building mobile apps with Oracle Mobile Application Framework (MAF). Believe it! Build iOS and Android apps with once code base and get it done!

Many things have changed in the mobile space over the last few years. Here's an update on our strategy for mobile apps for the E-Business Suite.

Mobile app strategy

We're building our family of mobile apps for the E-Business Suite using Oracle Mobile Application Framework.  This framework allows us to write a single application that can be run on Apple iOS and Google Android platforms. Mobile apps for the E-Business Suite will share a common look-and-feel.

The E-Business Suite is a suite of over 200 product modules spanning Financials, Supply Chain, Human Resources, and many other areas. Our mobile app strategy is to release standalone apps for specific product modules. 

Our Oracle Timecards app, which allows users to create and submit timecards, is an example of a standalone app.

Some common functions that span multiple product areas will have dedicated apps, too. An example of this is ourOracle Approvals app, which allows users to review and approve requests for expenses, requisitions, purchase orders, recruitment vacancies and offers, and more.

Approval app for E-Business Suite screenshot

You can read more about our Oracle Mobile Approvals app here:

Our goal is to support smaller screen (e.g. smartphones) as well as larger screens (e.g. tablets), with the smaller screen versions generally delivered first.  Where possible, we will deliver these as universal apps.  An example is our Oracle Mobile Field Service app, which allows field service technicians to remotely access customer, product, service request, and task-related information.  This app can run on a smartphone, while providing a richer experience for tablets.

Mobile Field Service for iPhones screenshot

Deploying EBS mobile apps

The mobile apps, themselves (i.e. client-side components) can be downloaded by end-users from the Apple iTunes today.  Android versions will be available from Google play. You can monitor this blog for Android-related updates.

Where possible, our mobile apps should be deployable with a minimum of server-side changes.  These changes will generally involve a consolidated server-side patch for technology-stack components, and possibly a server-side patch for the functional product module. Updates to existing mobile apps may require new server-side components to enable all of the latest mobile functionality.

All EBS product modules are certified for internal intranet deployments (i.e. used by employees within an organization's firewall).  Only a subset of EBS products such as iRecruitment are certified to be deployed externally (i.e. used by non-employees outside of an organization's firewall).  Today, many organizations running the E-Business Suite do not expose their EBS environment externally and all of the mobile apps that we're building are intended for internal employee use.  Recognizing this, our mobile apps are currently designed for users who are connected to the organization's intranet via VPN.  We expect that this may change in future updates to our mobile apps.

Mobile apps and internationalization

The initial releases of our mobile apps will be in English.  Later updates will include translations for all left-to-right languages supported by the E-Business Suite.  Right-to-left languages will not be translated.

Customizing apps for enterprise deployments

The current generation of mobile apps for Oracle E-Business Suite cannot be customized. We are evaluating options for limited customizations, including corporate branding with logos, corporate color schemes, and others. This is a potentially-complex area with many tricky implications for deployment and maintenance.  We would be interested in hearing your requirements for customizations in enterprise deployments.

      In Technology, Ignorance is NOT Bliss

      Author: Debra Lilley, ACE Director, UK

      Proof I’m not technical - 

      I’ve just finished a Latin America tour with OTN and a funny thing happened that I want to share with you; because it is quite a good analogy for how many of us use technology today and you know how I love analogies.

      In Costa Rica we had a really long journey up through the mountains to where our conference was to be. The road was windy and narrow and once it got dark there was no scenery to see, boredom set in. At one stage I looked at my watch to see the time, but in the dark I couldn’t make it out, so I thought I would be clever and use the torch in my smartphone! Even though as soon as I switched on the phone it showed the time, I ignored it and used the torch to read my watch.

      That’s us when we pay maintenance on software, ask for enhancements, and either chose not to upgrade or as I have seen so many times, upgrade but don’t use the new features. I know there are always other factors not least the upgrade costs themselves but in the later releases of all the Oracle family of applications Oracle have done a lot to make the interoperability of them with Oracle Fusion Middleware more successful and in many cases for the first time. My heritage is Oracle E Business Suite (EBS) and the availability of Oracle Weblogic for EBS is fantastic for an Oracle powered organisation that can move away from supporting multiple flavours of application server. The same release made available  - the no downtime patching that Oracle Database 11g introduced with Edition Based Redefinition.

      I am not saying you must use these features but you must be aware of what each release of your application brings and make a business based decision as to whether it is for you or not. I like to have a simple spreadsheet of features with no-value, nice-to-have, must-have ratings, but make the spreadsheet cumulative so that when you do upgrade you have all the features listed you previously didn’t take up. That way you can avoid the ‘using your phone to read your watch’ scenario.

      Oracle Identity Manager Role Management With API

      As an administrator, you use roles to create and manage the records of a collection of users to whom you want to permit access to common functionality, such as access rights, roles, or permissions.

      Roles can be independent of an organization, span multiple organizations, or contain users from a single organization.

      Using roles, you can:

      • View the menu items that the users can access through Oracle Identity Manager Administration Web interface.

      • Assign users to roles.

      • Assign a role to a parent role

      • Designate status to the users so that they can specify defined responses for process tasks.

      • Modify permissions on data objects.

      • Designate role administrators to perform actions on roles, such as enabling members of another role to assign users to the current role, revoke members from current role and so on.

      • Designate provisioning policies for a role. These policies determine if a resource object is to be provisioned to or requested for a member of the role.

      • Assign or remove membership rules to or from the role. These rules determine which users can be assigned/removed as direct membership to/from the role.

       In this post, i will share some examples for role management with Oracle Identity Management API.  You can do role operations you can use Thor.API.Operations.tcGroupOperationsIntf interface.

      tcGroupOperationsIntf service =  getClient().getService(tcGroupOperationsIntf.class);   

       Assign an user to role : 

        public void assignRoleByUsrKey(String roleName, String usrKey) throws Exception {

              Map<String, String> filter = new HashMap<String, String>();

              filter.put("Groups.Role Name", roleName);

              tcResultSet role = service.findGroups(filter);

              String groupKey = role.getStringValue("Groups.Key");

              service.addMemberUser(Long.parseLong(groupKey), Long.parseLong(usrKey));


       Revoke an user from role:

          public void revokeRoleByUsrKey(String roleName, String usrKey) throws Exception {

              Map<String, String> filter = new HashMap<String, String>();

              filter.put("Groups.Role Name", roleName);

              tcResultSet role = service.findGroups(filter);

              String groupKey = role.getStringValue("Groups.Key");

              service.removeMemberUser(Long.parseLong(groupKey), Long.parseLong(usrKey));


      Get all members of a role : 

          public List<User> getRoleMembers(String roleName) throws Exception {

              List<User> userList = new ArrayList<User>();

              Map<String, String> filter = new HashMap<String, String>();

              filter.put("Groups.Role Name", roleName);

              tcResultSet role = service.findGroups(filter);

            String groupKey = role.getStringValue("Groups.Key");

              tcResultSet members = service.getAllMemberUsers(Long.parseLong(groupKey));

              for (int i = 0; i < members.getRowCount(); i++) {


                      long userKey = members.getLongValue("Users.Key");

                      User member = oimUserManager.findUserByUserKey(String.valueOf(userKey));



             return userList;

      Focusing on Mobile @ Oracle OpenWorld

      Plenty of exciting trends in the industry today: Cloud, Big Data, Mobile, etc. The first two are amazing of course, but for me, it's mobile, mobile and... MOBILE.  

      Why? Think back to the mozilla browser (Marc Andreessen's mozilla, not today's, Netscape and the nascent beginnings of the World Wide Web. Amazing times. Companies were just starting to set up their home pages, basic HTML, hyperlinks, images, ooooh, aaaah.  Yahoo! was *the* search engine back then. :-\   Anywhoo, I would pose that mobile today, we are in a similar junction. Sure, there's millions of apps on Apple's App Store and Google Play, but within the enterprise, it's just getting started. I'm talking about going beyond the simple, tactical apps such as calendaring, contacts or directory service lookup. And while mobile first a common mantra, I'm referring to mobile plus which includes and looks upon the whole enterprise holistically and adds new parameters, such as your GPS location, perhaps even your vital signs. (Apple's health kit?)  Everything is going mobile. Everything connected. But with the enterprise - scalability, security, integration, app management, user management, etc. Amazing times ahead. Ok, got that off my mind.

      Oracle OpenWorld 2014 - Going Mobile!  If you're coming to the big dance, I've highlighted some key mobile sessions below. And if you see me around, and there's a bar within reach, high five me for a beer. I mean, if you read this far, and didn't already jump to the list below, I think you deserve one.   Cheers!

      Why Mobile Apps <3 REST/JSON

      Author:Martin Jarvis | Senior Director, Fusion Middleware Market Development 

      One significant difference that you’ll find in mobile architectures is the preference for REST and JSON over SOAP and XML for mobile web services.We don’t have time today to go into an in-depth comparison of SOAP and REST but lets take a brief look at why REST/JSON is considered best practice in Mobile.

      This diagram shows a simplified but typical mobile architecture. We have a number of backend applications and data sources connected through a service bus. In typical SOA environments these will use standards based SOAP and XML as the data exchange mechanism.  This has proven to be a robust and reliable solution behind the corporate firewall and on the high speed corporate LAN. 

      The mobile app, running on either a tablet or a smart phone performs all of it’s reading and writing data operations across some form of wireless network, often a public cellular 3g or (if you’re lucky a) 4g network. I’m sure everyone knows that these networks can be unpredictable, they suffer with variable network latency and all too frequent loss of signal. In those environments, SOAP and XML start to look over blown and too heavy.

      HTTP is typically used as the transport protocol under both SOAP and REST. REST is tied to HTTP and uses the basic HTTP verbs like GET, POST and PUT to express it’s actions.  SOAP was designed to be transport independent so it defines a much bulkier data envelope using XML, in which to transport the data payload.

      JSON is altogether a more compact way to represent data than XML. If you take a look at the two documents above side by side you should notice they actually represent the same data object, but the JSON document has considerably less boiler plate to depict the same data structure, so it takes less bytes to move it across the network. For SOAP messages, once you add on the SOAP envelope you end up with a much larger message to be sent across the network.

      JSON is also easier to parse than XML, using less memory and less CPU. On a big enterprise server you don’t notice that so much, but on a mobile device memory and CPU can be in short supply.

      A fact that many people forget is that CPU useage on a mobile device has a direct impact on battery life. The more demands you make of the CPU the quicker you consume battery power and the shorter time you have between recharges. This could have real business impact if the mobile user can’t complete their work because the device needs to be constantly recharged.  

      So hopefully you now have a better appreciation of why REST/JSON is considered best practice for mobile apps. But that doesn’t mean customers have to rip out their existing SOAP services and replace them with REST. With the Oracle Service Bus the two approaches can happily coexist and interoperate.  This often means customers can quickly expose existing Web Services over REST and reuse existing business logic to shorten app development timescales.

      If you’re not yet familiar with the REST and JSON technologies I encourage you to get on Google and start getting up to speed.
