Oracle E-Business Suite 12 Certified on Additional Linux Platforms

Linux Tux logo penguin

As a follow up to our original certification announcement regarding Oracle Linux 6, Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 (12.1.1 and higher) is now certified on the following additional Linux x86/x86-64 operating systems:

  • Oracle Linux 6 (32-bit)
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 (32-bit)
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 (64-bit)
  • Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) version 11 (64-bit)
New installations of the E-Business Suite on these operating systems require version 12.1.1 of the Release 12 media.  Cloning of existing 12.1 Linux environments to this new OS is also certified using the standard Rapid Clone process. There are specific requirements to upgrade technology components such as the Oracle Database (to 11gR2) and Fusion Middleware as necessary. These and other requirements are noted in the Installation and Upgrade Notes (IUN) below.

ATG Live Webcast June 28: Scrambling Sensitive Data in EBS 12 Cloned Environments

Securing the Oracle E-Business Suite includes protecting the underlying E-Business data in production and non-production databases.  While steps can be taken to provide a secure configuration to limit EBS access, a better approach to protecting non-production data is simply to scramble (mask) the data in the non-production copy.  

The Oracle E-Business Suite Template for Data Masking Pack can be used in situations where confidential or regulated data needs to be shared with other non-production users who need access to some of the original data, but not necessarily every table.  Examples of non-production users include internal application developers or external business partners such as offshore testing companies, suppliers or customers.

The Oracle E-Business Suite Template for Data Masking Pack is applied to a non-production environment with the Enterprise Manager Grid Control Data Masking Pack.  When applied, the Oracle E-Business Suite Template for Data Masking Pack will create an irreversibly scrambled version of your production database for development and testing. This ATG Live Webcast is your chance to come learn about the Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3 Template for Data Masking Pack from the experts.

Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3 Template for Data Masking

Example of Data Masking from Production to Non-Production Instance
The agenda for the Oracle E-Business Suite Template for Data Masking Pack webcast includes the following topics:

  • What does data masking do in E-Business Suite environments?
    • De-identify the data
    • Mask sensitive data
    • Maintain data validity
  • How can EBS customers use data masking?

URGENT BULLETIN: All E-Business Suite End-Users Must Manually Apply JRE 6 Updates

[Update Dec. 11, 2012: JRE 7 is now certified with the E-Business Suite; see this announcement for complete details.]

[Update Oct. 19, 2012: All customers can begin preparing for JRE 7 now by applying a Forms-based patch to their E-Business Suite environments.  For details, see: Planning Bulletin for JRE 7: What EBS Customers Can Do Today]

[Update 10:00 AM June 20, 2012: Added reference to Note 1469230.1]

[Update 9:35 AM June 19, 2012: Added reference to Note 1412103.2]

[Update 11:40 AM June 14, 2012: Updated title based upon expanded guidance from Java team]

[Update 9:15 AM June 14, 2012: Updated entire text based on expanded guidance from Java team]

[Update 8:40 AM June 14, 2012: Clarified JRE version references]

[Update 4:13 PM June 13, 2012: Added reference to My Oracle Support Note 1467442.1]

[Update 1:40 PM June 13, 2012:  Added more details on finding the Java Update tab, and options 1 to 3]



As previously announced, Oracle will shortly stop providing public updates for JRE 6.


To ensure that Java Users remain on a secure version, Windows systems that rely on auto-update will be auto-updated from JRE 6 to JRE 7.

Until EBS is certified with JRE 7, EBS users should not rely on the windows auto-update mechanism for their client machines and should manually keep the JRE up to date with the latest versions of 6 on an ongoing basis.

How to get the latest version of JRE 6

Until November of this year, the latest version of JRE 6 can be found on the Download tab of the Java SE sectionin OTN.  After November of this year further CPU (critical patch updates) to JRE 6 will be available through My Oracle Support.  Having a current EBS support contract grants you the right to download and use these JRE 6 versions on clients accessing EBS.

Within your organization, you may distribute the latest version of JRE 6 to your users and ask them to run the installer on their systems (or use equivalent enterprise desktop distribution mechanisms).

To maintain the security of your users’ desktops it is strongly recommended that you repeat the steps above after each CPU release.

For Oracle Java SE Critical Patch Updates, the next three dates are listed on the Critical Patch Updates, Security Alerts and Third Party BulletinYou can subscribe to the RSS feed on the Bulletin above to receive updates to the CPU schedules.

Reverting back to Java 6 from Java 7

If an E-Business Suite end-user's desktop has been inadvertently upgraded to JRE 1.7, you must:

  1. Uninstall JRE 1.7
  2. Reinstall the latest JRE 1.6 release.

Stay on Java 6 for now

EBS customers should continue to run JRE 1.6 (a.k.a. JRE 6) on their Windows end-user desktops, and JDK 6 on their EBS servers.

If a search engine has brought you to this article, please check the Certifications summary for our latest certified Java release.

Our plans for certifying Java 7 for the E-Business Suite

We plan on releasing the Java 7 certification for E-Business Suite customers in two phases:

  • Phase 1: Certify JRE 7 for Windows end-user desktops
  • Phase 2: Certify JDK 7 for server-based components

When will Java 7 be certified with EBS?

We're working on the first phase now. At this time, we cannot provide delivery dates, but you can monitor or subscribe to this blog for updates.

Current known issues with JRE 1.7 in EBS environments

Our current testing shows that there are known incompatibilities between JRE 1.7 and the Forms-invocation process in EBS environments.  In the meantime, EBS customers should not deploy JRE 1.7 to their end-user Windows desktop clients. EBS customers should remain on JRE 6 at this time.

Java JRE 1.6.0_33 Certified with Oracle E-Business Suite

[June 14, 2012 Update: removed redundant JRE Auto Update information; pointed to standalone blog article]

I'm pleased to let you know that the latest Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0_33 (a.k.a. JRE 6u33-b03) is now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i and 12.  

What's new in Java 1.6.0_33?

See the 1.6.0_33 Update Release Notes for details about what has changed in this release.  This release is available for download from the usual Sun channels and through the 'Java Automatic Update' mechanism.

32-bit and 64-bit versions certified

This certification includes both the 32-bit and 64-bit JRE versions.  64-bit JREs are certified only on 64-bit versions of Windows 7 and Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1).

Worried about the 'mismanaged session cookie' issue?

No need to worry -- it's fixed.  To recap: JRE releases 1.6.0_18 through 1.6.0_22 had issues with mismanaging session cookies that affected some users in some circumstances.

The fix for those issues was first included in JRE 1.6.0_23. These fixes will carry forward and continue to be fixed in all future JRE releases.  In other words, if you wish to avoid the mismanaged session cookie issue, you should apply any release after JRE 1.6.0_22.

All JRE 1.6 releases are certified with EBS upon release

Our standard policy is that all E-Business Suite customers can apply all JRE updates to end-user desktops from JRE 1.6.0_03 and later updates on the 1.6 codeline.  We test all new JRE 1.6 releases in parallel with the JRE development process, so all new JRE 1.6 releases are considered certified with the E-Business Suite on the same day that they're released by our Java team. 

You do not need to wait for a certification announcement before applying new JRE 1.6 releases to your EBS users' desktops.

Important

Java 6 Certified with Forms and Reports 10g for EBS 12

Java logoJava 6 is now certified with Oracle Application Server 10g Forms and Reports with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 (12.0.6, 12.1.1 and higher).

What? Wasn't this already certified?

No, but a little background might be useful in understanding why this is a new announcement.

We previously certified the use of Java 6 with E-Business Suite Release 12 -- with the sole exception of Oracle Application Server 10g components in the E-Business Suite technology stack.

Oracle Application Server 10g originally included Java 1.4.2 as part of its distribution.  E-Business Suite 12 uses, amongst other things, the Oracle Forms and Reports 10g components running on Java 1.4. Java 1.4 in the Oracle Application Server 10g ORACLE_HOME is used exclusively by AS 10g Forms and Reports' for Java functionality.  This version of Java is separate from the Java distribution used by other parts of EBS such as Oracle Containers for Java (OC4J).

What's new about this certification?

You can now upgrade the older Java 1.4 libraries used by Oracle Forms & Reports 10g to Java 6. This allows you to upgrade the Java releases within the Oracle Application Server 10g ORACLE_HOME to the the same level as the rest of your E-Business Suite technology stack components.

Why upgrade?

This becomes particularly important for customers as individual vendors' support lifecycle for Java 1.4 reaches End of Life:

  • Oracle's Sun JDK Release 1.4.2's End of Extended Support: February 2013
    (Sustaining Support indefinitely after)
  • IBM SDK and JRE 1.4.2's End of Service: September 2013
  • HP-UX Java 1.4.2's End-of-Life : May 2012
Along with Oracle Forms, Java lies at the heart of the Oracle E-Business Suite.  Small improvements in Java can have significant effects on the performance and stability of the E-Business Suite.  As a notable side-benefit, later versions of Java have improved built-in and third-party tools for JVM performance monitoring and tuning.

Our standing recommendation is that you always stay current with the latest available Java update provided by your operating system vendor. 

Don't forget to upgrade Forms & Reports to 10.1.2.3

E-Business Suite 12 originally shipped with Oracle Application Server 10g Forms & Reports 10.1.2.0.2.  That version is no longer eligible for Error Correction Support. New Forms and Reports 10g patches are now being released with Forms and Reports 10.1.2.3 as the prerequisite. Forms and Reports 10.1.2.3 was certified for EBS 12 environments in November 2008.

If you haven't upgraded your EBS 12 environment to Forms & Reports 10.1.2.3, this is a good opportunity to do so.

Plans for Java 7 and E-Business Suite Certification

[Update Dec. 11, 2012: JRE 7 is now certified with the E-Business Suite; see this announcement for complete details.]

[Update Oct. 19, 2012: All customers can begin preparing for JRE 7 now by applying a Forms-based patch to their E-Business Suite environments.  For details, see: Planning Bulletin for JRE 7: What EBS Customers Can Do Today]

Java logoAs of June 2012, Java 7 has not been certified yet with Oracle E-Business Suite.  EBS customers should continue to run JRE 6 on their Windows end-user desktops, and JDK 6 on their EBS servers.

If a search engine has brought you to this article, please check the Certifications summary for our latest certified Java release.

Our plans for certifying Java 7 for the E-Business Suite

We plan on releasing the Java 7 certification for E-Business Suite customers in two phases:

  • Phase 1: Certify JRE 7 for Windows end-user desktops
  • Phase 2: Certify JDK 7 for server-based components

When will Java 7 be certified with EBS?

We're working on the first phase now. As usual, I cannot discuss release dates here, but you can monitor or subscribe to this blog for updates.

Current known issues with JRE 7 in EBS environments

Our current testing shows that there are known incompatibilities between JRE 7 and the Forms-invocation process in EBS environments.  We have been working directly with the Java division on this for a while now.  In the meantime, EBS customers should not deploy JRE 7 to their end-user Windows desktop clients. You should stick with JRE 1.6 for now. 

But wait, you previously said...

Older JRE certification announcements stated:

Our standard policy is that all E-Business Suite customers can apply all JRE updates to end-user desktops from JRE 1.6.0_03 and higher.  We test all new JRE releases in parallel with the JRE development process, so all JRE releases are considered certified with the E-Business Suite on the same day that they're released by our Java team. 

You do not need to wait for a certification announcement before applying new JRE releases to your EBS users' desktops.

Yes, this is true.  This standard boilerplate text was written before JRE 7 was released, so there was no possibility of misunderstanding.  With the availability of JRE 7, that boilerplate needs to be revised to read:

Our standard policy is that all E-Business Suite customers can apply all JRE updates to end-user desktops from JRE 1.6.0_03 and later updates on the 1.6 codeline.  We test all new JRE 1.6 releases in parallel with the JRE development process, so all new JRE 1.6 releases are considered certified with the E-Business Suite on the same day that they're released by our Java team. 

You do not need to wait for a certification announcement before applying new JRE 1.6 releases to your EBS users' desktops.

Oracle Internet Directory 11gR1 11.1.1.6 Certified with E-Business Suite

[June 7, 2012 Update: Corrected typo in "Supported Configurations" section]

Oracle E-Business Suite comes with native user authentication and management capabilities out-of-the-box. If you need more-advanced features, it's also possible to integrate it with Oracle Internet Directory and Oracle Single Sign-On or Oracle Access Manager, which allows you to link the E-Business Suite with third-party tools like Microsoft Active Directory, Windows Kerberos, and CA Netegrity SiteMinder. 


For details about third-party integration architectures, see either of these article for EBS 11i and 12:

Oracle Internet Directory 11.1.1.6 is now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i, 12.0 and 12.1.  OID 11.1.1.6 is part of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 Version 11.1.1.6.0, also known as FMW 11g Patchset 5.  Certified E-Business Suite releases are:
  • EBS Release 11i 11.5.10.2 + ATG PH.H RUP 7 and higher
  • EBS Release 12.0.6 and higher
  • EBS Release 12.1.1 and higher

Supported Configurations

Oracle Internet Directory 11.1.1.6.0 can be integrated with two single sign-on solutions for EBS environments:

  • Oracle Internet Directory and Directory Integration Platform from Fusion Middleware 11gR1 Patchset 5 (11.1.1.6.0) with Oracle Access Manager 10g (10.1.4.3) with an existing Oracle E-Business Suite system (Release 11i or 12.1.x).
  • Oracle Internet Directory and Directory Integration Platform from Fusion Middleware 11gR1 Patchset 5 (11.1.1.6.0) with Oracle Access Manager 11gR1 (11.1.1.5) with an existing Oracle E-Business Suite system (Release 12.0.6 or higher or 12.1.x).
  • Oracle Internet Directory (OID) and Directory Integration Platform (DIP) from Oracle Fusion Middleware 11gR1 Patchset 5  (11.1.1.6.0) with Oracle Single Sign-On Server and Oracle Delegated Administration Services Release 10g (10.1.4.3.0) with an existing Oracle E-Business Suite system (Release 11i, 12.0.6 or 12.1.x)

Oracle Access Manager strongly recommended

Oracle has two single sign-on solutions: Oracle Single Sign-On Server (OSSO) and Oracle Access Manager (OAM). Oracle strongly recommends that all new single sign-on implementations use Oracle Access Manager. Oracle Access Manager is the preferred solution going forward, and forms the basis of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g. OSSO is no longer being actively developed and will not be ported to Oracle WebLogic Server.

Platform certifications

Oracle Internet Directory is certified to run on any operating system for which Oracle WebLogic Server 11g is certified. Refer to the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g System Requirements for more details.

For information on operating systems supported by Oracle Internet Directory and its components, refer to the Oracle Identity and Access Management 11gR1 certification matrix.

Integration with Oracle Internet Directory involves components spanning several different suites of Oracle products. There are no restrictions on which platform any particular component may be installed so long as the platform is supported for that component.
