Oracle Access Manager 11gR1 Patchset 2 11.1.1.7 Certified with EBS 12

Oracle Access Manager 11gR1 Patchset 2 (a.k.a. 11.1.1.7) is now certified with E-Business Suite Release 12.0 and 12.1.  Applying Oracle Access Manager 11gR1 Patchset 2 will provide you with the latest set of fixes for Oracle Access Manager 11gR1 which have been validated with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.0 and 12.1.

Oracle has two single sign-on solutions, Oracle Single Sign-On Server (OSSO) and Oracle Access Manager. 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. Oracle Single Sign-On is no longer being actively developed and will not be ported to Oracle WebLogic Server.

Prerequisites

  • Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.1 and higher, Release 12.0 RUP 6 (12.0.6)
  • Oracle Internet Directory 11gR1 PS1 (11.1.1.2) or higher

Platforms Certified

Oracle Access Manager 11gR1 is certified to run on any operating system for which Oracle WebLogic Server 11g is certified. Refer to Oracle Fusion Middleware Supported System Configurations on the Oracle Technology Network (OTN):

Integration with Oracle Access Manager 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.

Configuring Integrated SOA Gateway in Multinode EBS Environments

The E-Business Suite's three-tier architecture consists of application tier services such as Web Application Services (oacore, oafm, Forms), Web Entry Point Services, Batch Processing Services, Root Services and database tier processes and data. A node represents a physical server with a set of processes. When application and database processes are distributed across multiple servers, it is called a multi-node installation. Generally, a hardware load-balancer is used to distribute EBS traffic between multiple nodes.

Load-balanced multi-node EBS environment

Oracle E-Business Suite Integrated SOA Gateway (ISG) provides a SOA-based infrastructure to provide and consume web service in EBS. The Integrated SOA Gateway can be configured for use in multi-node EBS environments; see:

Configuring Oracle E-Business Suite Integrated SOA Gateway Release 12.1.2 and Release 12.1.3 in a Multinode Environment (Note 1081100.1)

This document's steps for web service generation and deployment in multi-node environments should be followed for each EBS Public API exposed as web service.

How to set up Integrated SOA Gateway in multi-node environment

Service Provider:  ISG generates web service artifacts and stores them in the Instance Home (INST_TOP). Regardless of whether a shared file system is used in EBS multi-node installation, ISG’s Service Provider should be configured to synchronize web service artifacts across all EBS application tier nodes.

Service Invocation Framework:  ISG stores metadata about the web service to be invoked in database tables. However, if the target web service resides outside a corporate firewall, then you need to ensure that the EBS host has access to WSDL and target web service endpoints required for sending SOAP requests. This requires setting up Proxy Host and Port at appropriate EBS application tiers; see the "Setup Tasks" section in Chapter 9 in this guide:

Oracle E-Business Suite Integrated SOA Gateway Implementation Guide [Part E12169-06].

Proxy Host and Port setup should be done for each node in a multi-node environment.

BPEL 11.1.1.7 Certified for Prebuilt E-Business Suite 12.1 SOA Integrations

Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) integrations with Oracle E-Business Suite can either be custom integrations that you build yourself or prebuilt integrations from Oracle.  For more information about the differences between the two options for SOA integrations, see this previously-published certification announcement.

There are five prebuilt BPEL business processes by Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 product teams:

  1. Oracle Price Protection (DPP)

  1. Complex Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (CMRO/AHL)

  1. Oracle Transportation Management (WMS, WSH, PO)

  1. Advanced Supply Chain Planning (MSC)

  1. Product Information Management (PIM/EGO)

BPEL integration architecture diagram example

Last year we announced the certification of BPEL 11.1.1.6 for Prebuilt E-Business Suite 12.1.3 SOA integrations.  The five prebuilt BPEL processes have now been certified with Oracle BPEL Process Manager 11g version 11.1.1.7 (in Oracle Fusion Middleware SOA Suite 11g).  These prebuilt BPEL processes are certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3 and higher.

Note: The Supply Chain Trading Connector (CLN) product team has opted not to support BPEL 11g with their prebuilt business processes previously certified with BPEL 10.1.3.5.  If you have a requirement for that certification, I would recommend contacting your Oracle account manager to ensure that the Supply Chain team is notified appropriately. 

For additional information about prebuilt integrations with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3, please refer to the following documentation:

Certified Platforms

  • Linux x86 (Oracle Linux 4, 5)

  • Linux x86 (RHEL 5)

  • Linux x86 (SLES 10)

  • Linux x86-64 (Oracle Linux 4, 5, 6)

  • Linux x86-64 (RHEL 5)

  • Linux x86-64 (SLES 10) 

  • Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit) (9, 10, 11)

  • HP-UX Itanium (11.23, 11.31)

  • HP-UX PA-RISC (64-bit) (11.23, 11.31)

  • IBM AIX on Power Systems (64-bit) (5.3, 6.1, 7)

  • IBM: Linux on System z (RHEL 5, SLES 10)

  • Microsoft Windows Server (32-bit) (2003, 2008) 

  • Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit) (2008 R2)

Getting Support

If you need support for the prebuilt EBS 12.1.3 BPEL business processes, you can log Service Requests against the Applications Technology Group product family.
