Build Custom WebADI Integrators with EBS 12.1.2 Desktop Integration Framework

[Nov. 22, 2010 Update:  Office 2010 (32-Bit) is now certified with the E-Business Suite; see this article for details]

Oracle Web Application Desktop Integrator (Web ADI) is Oracle E-Business Suite's solution for integrating E-Business Suite applications with desktop applications such as Microsoft Excel, Word and Projects.  "Integrators" encapsulate the metadata and other information needed to integrate a particular Oracle E-Business Suite task with a desktop application.

I'm pleased to announce the availability of Oracle E-Business Suite Desktop Integration Framework (DIF), a design time framework that you can use to create custom integrators for Oracle Web ADI in Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.2.

Several Oracle E-Business Suite applications provide seeded integrators out-of-the-box. You can now use the Desktop Integration Framework to define custom integrators for tasks of your own.

dif1.jpg

Oracle E-Business Suite Desktop Integration Framework provides a graphical user interface which you can use to define integrators and associated supporting objects.  You can reduce development time by using the GUI instead of working directly with the underlying Oracle Web ADI tables and APIs.  This user interface makes it easier to maintain your integrators, too.  The Desktop Integration Framework supports native Oracle Application Framework (OAF) UI widgets like Flex-fields, List Of Values, Pop-lists and Date pickers.

dif2.jpg
The Desktop Integration Framework allows you to:
  • Create Integrators using a wizard-based user interface
  • Define Integrators to upload data through PL/SQL APIs or directly to tables
  • Define Integrators to download data from text files or using SQL Queries
  • Define data validation rules
  • Embed UI widgets (List of values, Pop lists, Date pickers, Flexfields) in spreadsheets
  • Use the Oracle E-Business Suite Security Model
  • Define layouts and mappings for custom integrators
Your feedback is welcome

We are very interested in hearing about your experiences with this new tool.  Please post your comments here or drop me an email at email.jpg

Sneak Preview: Integrating EBS with Desktop Apps via Web ADI Development Framework

Web Applications Desktop Integration (Web ADI) is an enterprise framework for integrating the Oracle E-Business Suite with desktop applications. It's a Self-Service Oracle Application that lets you download and upload selected data between EBS products and  Microsoft Excel.  It allows you to modify bulk data in Microsoft Excel, working either online or offline, and upload the modified data using Web ADI.  It also allows you to generate Microsoft Word documents for mail merges.

What's Coming for Web ADI?

Are you interested in integrating EBS application with desktop application using Oracle’s Web ADI framework? Are you interested in creating custom Web ADI integrators with the ability to define validations, lookups, and business rules? Well, you're in the right place! The Oracle Applications Technology Group is working on providing a new development framework to create and manage custom desktop integrators.

Web ADI integration architecture diagram

We're building out this upcoming framework to provide rich functionality to:

Define integrators

  • Security rules
  • One or more interfaces to import data-to EBS
  • One or more contents to extract data-from
  • Validation rules – flex fields, description flex fields, SQL-based lookup
  • Business rules to import data to EBS

Manage integrators

  • Create integrators
  • Edit and delete custom integrators
  • View Oracle-seeded and custom integrator definitions

Define and Manage UI components and lookup screens
