Java Compatible Enterprise Edition steaming coffee cup logo
Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.0 originally shipped with OracleAS 10.1.3 Oracle Containers for J2EE (OC4J) for running its Java-based content.  Regular readers of this blog know that we certified OracleAS 10.1.3.4 with Apps 12 at the end of 2008, with additional operating system platforms following shortly afterwards.

We've now certified Oracle Application Server 10g 10.1.3.5 OC4J with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.  You can upgrade to OracleAS 10.1.3.5 OC4J directly from OracleAS 10.1.3, 10.1.3.3, or 10.1.3.4.  This certification allows you to upgrade the OC4J components in your R12 techstack to get take advantage of the latest performance and stability improvements in this incremental patchset.  To make sure that there's no misunderstanding about what can be upgraded, the full name of this patchset is:
It's important to note that either OracleAS 10.1.3.3, 10.1.3.4, or 10.1.3.5 are mandatory prerequisites if you plan to upgrade your Release 12 application tier to the latest certified version of Java 6.

Secure Enterprise Search 10.1.8.4 Certified with E-Business Suite 11i

Secure Enterprise Search 10.1.8.4 was certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.0 earlier this year.  Our Applications Technology Group has just released their certification of Secure Enterprise Search 10.1.8.4 with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i.

If you missed that earlier announcement, here's a recap of the basics. Secure Enterprise Search (SES) provides new search capabilities for EBS: Apps users can search for E-Business Suite data using a unified search engine, with search results displayed based upon their Applications responsibilities. Searches can be performed on structured and unstructured data. Notably, search results respect multi-level security, including:
  • Role-based access control (RBAC) functional and data security
  • Product-specific security policies

For example, an authorized E-Business Suite user could use the search screen above to search for "Assets" in "Northpark," yielding the following results:

Introducing the Search Modeller

This certification also has an added bonus:  it includes the new Search Modeler for E-Business Suite customers.  Search Modeler Version 1.1 is certified with Apps 11i as well as Apps 12 releases.

Search Modeler is a web-based tool that allows you to create search solutions tailored to your business needs. You can create search solutions for any E-Business Suite product. In most cases you can also include custom application objects as part of your search solution, if your custom applications as registered in the EBS Application Object Library.

Prerequisites
  • Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i version 11.5.10.2
  • Oracle Applications Technology 11i.ATG_PF.H.delta.6 (Release Update Pack 6)
  • Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 10.1.8.4
Supported Platforms

Secure Enterprise Search may be optionally installed on standalone external server and integrated with EBS 11i. The operating system platforms supported for the standalone Secure Enterprise Search instance are:
  • Linux x86 (Oracle Enterprise Linux 4, Red Hat Linux 3, 4; SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9)
  • Linux x86-64 (Oracle Enterprise Linux 4, Red Hat Linux 3,4; SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9)
  • Solaris SPARC (Solaris 8, 64-bit; Solaris 9, 64-bit; Solaris 10, 64-bit)
  • HP-UX PA-RISC (11.11 64-bit; 11.23 64-bit)

Thirteen New E-Business 12.1.1 Database-Tier Only Certifications for 10gR2

Our Applications Platforms Group has just released a flurry of new platform certifications for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.1 for the 10gR2 10.2.0.4 Database Server.  The following operating systems are now certified for database-tier only deployments:
  • Sun Solaris x86-64 (Solaris 10) 
  • IBM: Linux on System z (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5, Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise System 9 and 10)
  • IBM: Linux on Power Systems (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5, Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise System 9 and 10)
  • Linux Itanium (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5, Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise System 9 and 10)
These database-tier only platforms were previously certified with E-Business Suite 12.0 and 10gR2.  Customers running those combinations can now apply the 12.1.1 Maintenance Pack to upgrade their application tier to EBS 12.1.1 while running the 10gR2 database on one of the above platforms.

This is a database-tier only certification (previously known as a 'split configuration database tier' certification), where the application tier must be on a fully certified E-Business Suite R12 platform.

Still Underway


The certification of Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.1 with Windows 2003 (x64) and Windows Itanium as database tier-only platforms is still underway.  I don't have firm schedules for this certification yet, but you're welcome to monitor or subscribe to this blog for updates, which I'll post as soon as soon as they're available.
