Statement of Direction: Oracle AD4J + Oracle E-Business Suite
By Steven Chan (Oracle Development) on May 19, 2008
Mondays -- you gotta love 'em. Noon hasn't even rolled around yet and it's already turning out to be one of those days.
The volume of questions relating to E-Business Suite compatibility with the Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM) plug-in called Oracle Application Diagnostics for Java (AD4J) has increased sharply in the last few weeks. This plug-in allows OEM users to monitor the availability and performance of Java-based applications.
I've heard anecdotal reports that some Apps customers have successfully configured AD4J to view and monitor the Java Virtual Machines (JVM) of an E-Business Suite instance. Our Applications Technology Integration team hasn't done any formal certifications of the E-Business Suite with AD4J yet. On first principles alone, I can't think of any major reasons why this integration wouldn't work. However, in the absence of our formal certification tests, we don't have any guidelines on deploying AD4J in E-Business Suite environments yet.
We're definitely interested in testing this ourselves, after we've gotten Release 12.1 out the door. AD4J is on our list of future certification projects. I don't have firm schedules for this certification yet, but you're welcome to this blog updates, which I'll post as soon as soon as they're available.
