Update for Web Applications Desktop Integrator 12.1.3 Now Available

Desktop Integration Framework is a wizard-driven user interface to create and manage custom desktop integrators for the Oracle Web Applications Desktop Integrator in Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.3. Custom desktop integrators allow your users to:

  • Create a formatted document such as a spreadsheet on the desktop containing application-specific fields for data entry.
  • Import data into the desktop document from the database, a text file or using Java program.
  • Work with the data in the desktop application while enforcing the owning application's business rules.
  • Upload data from the desktop document into Oracle E-Business Suite.
  • Validate the data being uploaded and receive immediate feedback about the results of the validation during the upload process.
  • Submit program to import data from staging tables, Open Interface tables to E-Business Suite base tables.

What's new in this update?

An important update for Oracle Web Applications Desktop Integrator Release 12.1.3 is now available:

This update includes a number of new fixes and consolidates previously-released patches that address issues in the Desktop Integration Framework of Oracle Web Applications Desktop Integrator Release 12.1.3. If you are using or planning to use Web ADI's Desktop Integration Framework to create custom desktop integrators, Oracle strongly recommends applying this patch.

Patch 9790225:R12.BNE.B not only fixes outstanding bugs in Web ADI R12.1.3, but also includes following usability enhancements:

Hello Rekha,
can you please confirm that the new "Desktop Integration Framework" cannot be used to create custom integrators for the HRMS module?

Thanks,
Paolo

Hi Paolo,

You can create custom integrators for HRMS module using Desktop Integration Framework. There is no such limitation in Desktop Integration Framework for HRMS module.

Thanks,
Rekha

Good morning Rekha,
thanks a lot for your answer.

It is anyway strange that Oracle HR Development told me the opposite in an SR I opened, because I have problems in creating custom application integrators for the HRMS module using the Desktop Integration Framework.

The main problem is that when associating an integrator to an HR form, the DIF forms do not create the correct parameter list for the form in question (like the standard "HR Integrator Setup" integrator is doing) and for that reason the integrator is not available when using Web ADI export icon from that form. Is that a bug or is it just unforeseen functionality?

Thanks,
Paolo

Good morning Rekha,
just for your information, DEV has finally confirmed that it is not supported to create HR related integrators via the new "Desktop Integration Framework".

For this reason I have asked to create the following Enhancement Request:

Bug 14762710 : CREATE HR INTEGRATORS ALSO VIA THE NEW “DESKTOP INTEGRATION MANAGER” RESP

It would be nice if you could follow it up and make sure it gets implemented, so that also HR users will be able to exploit the huge advantages of the "Desktop Integration Framework".

Thanks,
Paolo

Can Patch 9790225 be applied to a 12.1.2 install that has ATG 12.1.3 (Patch 89194910) and Patches 8919489 & 9239089 installed?

Posted by Joseph Mathew on December 04, 2012 at 06:56 AM PST #

Hi Joseph,

DIF consolidated patch 9790225:R12.BNE.B is built on top of ATG R12.1.3, that is on top of code levels - R12.AD.B.delta.3 (Patch 8919489) & R12.ATG_PF.B.delta.3 (Patch 8919491).

As you are in R12.1.2 level, you would need to follow the steps in My Oracle Support Note: 1066312.1 for ATG R12.1.3, before applying 8919491, 9239089 or 8919489 patches.

Thanks,

Hi Rekha,

We are working on a solution to provide WebADI to refresh Inventory tables, can you pls let us know if it is possible to do the same?

Thanks and regards,
Denzil

Hi Rekha,

We have a requirement to update inventory using WebADI, we're using R12.1.3, can you comment on the possibility of creating a custom integrator for inventory and suggest any whitepapers for step by step installation of the same.

Regards,
Denzil

Hi Denzil,

Nice to hear from you. As I am not a subject matter expert of Inventory, I may not be able to guide you specifically on Inventory. In general, here are few things you may want to consider while you prepare to create custom integrator:
1. Data level Validation rules
2. Business rules that can be implemented using APIs.
3. Interface (Open Interface tables) - where do you want to upload data
4. Content - Source of data
5. Public APIs provided by Inventory

I suggest you to refer Integration Repository (available in your E-Business Suite R12.1.3 instance through Integrated SOA Gateway responsibility). If you do not find any appropriate API, please file Service Request with My Oracle Support, one of our Support Engineers will assist you.

Thanks,
Rekha

Hi Rekha,

I had created one custom integrator and its working fine in development instance and I created ldt file from development instance by using FNDLOAD utility.

when I migrated this custom integrator into Test instance , I am getting error message as below 'XXcustom:cust_intg' is an invalid integrator key'.

Thanks & Regards
Ram

I am accessing this from AP responsibility and this integrator is not in editable mode.

Hello Rekha

I created a custom Integrator to download and upload data into a custom table. How do I update data. Right now any changes I make to the data in the spreadsheet is uploaded as new row. What do I have to do to make it a upload instead of insert.

Thanks,
Sue

Hi Sue,

Please log a formal service request in My Oracle Support. And, feel free to forward me the SR number.

Hi Rekha,

We have a requirement to create a WebADI template for uploading AP Invoices. Have below questions in this regard.

1. Can we use a custom table say XXAP.XXAP_INVOICES_INT (registered to custom Application say XXAP )

2. The problem in using the standard open interface table is that Invoice data comprises of Invoice Headers (that goes to AP_INVOICES_INTERFACE) and Invoice Lines (that goes to AP_INVOICE_LINES_INTERFACE. Which means I should create 2 integrators and that gives two layouts one for entering headers and another one for lines and users dont like this.

Can you please give me a quick confirmation on this. I tried creating integrator for custom Application (XXAP) but while creating Interface, there are no tables listed in the LOV. (When I queried I have 20 custom tables)

Thanks,
Naresh Mankala
