ATG Live Webcast Event - EBS 12 OAF Rich UI Enhancements

The E-Business Suite Applications Technology Group (ATG) participates in several conferences a year, including Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco and OAUG/Collaborate.   We announce new releases, roadmaps, updates, and other news at these events.  These events are exciting, drawing thousands of attendees, but it's clear that only a fraction of our EBS users are able to participate.

We touch upon many of the same announcements here on this blog, but a blog article is necessarily different than an hour-long conference session.  We're very interested in offering more in-depth technical content and the chance to interact directly with senior ATG Development staff. 

New ATG Live Webcast series -- free of charge

As part of that initiative, I'm very pleased to announce that we're launching a new series of free ATG Live Webcasts jointly with Oracle University.  Our goal is to provide solid, authoritative coverage of some of the latest ATG technologies, broadcasting live from our development labs to you.

Our first event is titled:

  • The Latest E-Business Suite R12.x OA Framework Rich User Interface Enhancements

This live one-hour webcast will offer a comprehensive review of the latest user interface enhancements and updates to OA Framework in EBS 12. Developers will get a detailed look at new features designed to enhance usability, offer more capabilities for personalization and extensions, and support the development and use of dashboards and web services.

Topics will include new rich user interface (UI) capabilities such as: 

  • New Home Page features
  • Navigator & Favorites pull-down menus
  • REST interface
  • Embedded widgets for analytics content
  • Third-party widgets
  • Look-ahead List of Values
  • Inline attachments
  • Popups
  • Business layer extensions
  • ADF integration

I'm looking forward to these ATG webcasts. Just wondering - Will these be archived for some of us that cannot always attend?

Posted by Adrian Niedziela on January 05, 2011 at 11:51 PM PST #

Yes, the content will be available for replay through a number of sources. I will post a replay link on this blog, and it will be available through Oracle University's iLearning system.

Hi, Rama,

Sorry that you're having trouble. I've tested the registration links (again) and verified that they (still) work. You might wish to retry, possibly with a different browser or with cookie traps and adblocking filters disabled.

Rama, Ketan, and others with registration issues:

There are a couple of issues that have been resolved in the URL. I have updated the blog posting with the new URL, and it should resolve these issues. Please try to register again by following the new link.

We also uncovered another potential issue. There are some user accounts that seem to be unable to connect, for one reason or another, to Oracle University's Knowledge Center (iLearning). If you have this, you might encounter a 404 or 403 error even using the new URL. If so, you will have to create a new user account on Since this is free, it should not be an issue. You may need to logout of your old account before creating a new one.

I already have an account and it is active and valid. I am still unable to get to the registration site. I have tried the following:

1. Tried using 3 different browsers
2. Tried two different computers
3. Logged into and tried to search for the course
4. Searched for the course under Education

All steps were unsuccessful.

If the webcast is planned to be recorded and archived, I would be keen to view it at a later date. Please let me know the details.

Thank you,
