It took a little longer than expected, but our Applications Platform Group has certified the Safari 4 browser with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 on the following desktop operating system configurations:
Mac OS X 10.5 ("Leopard")
  • Mac OS X 10.5 ("Leopard" version 10.5.6 or higher, along with any other security and Java updates in the Software Update program started from the Apple icon menu on the client)
  • Safari 4 (4.0.4 or higher)
  • The J2SE 5 plug-in on Mac OS X (v1.5.0_13 or higher)
Mac OS X 10.6 ("Snow Leopard")
  • Mac OS X 10.6 ("Snow Leopard" version 10.6.3 or higher, along with any other security and Java updates in the Software Update program started from the Apple icon menu on the client)
  • Safari 4 (version 4.0.5 or higher)
  • The J2SE 6 plug-in on Mac OS X (v1.6.0_20 or higher)
Special considerations for Mac OS X desktops

I strongly recommend that you review the setup and configuration-related tips Mac desktops:
What about Safari 5 on Mac OS X?

Our teams are still working on the Safari 5 certification right now.  Until that certification is completed, we recommend that Safari 5 is not selected as part of any installs using 'Software Update' which runs periodically on the Mac desktop.  System administrators and users may want to choose the 'Ignore Update..' selection under the 'Update' pulldown menu of this program for Safari 5 to ensure that users do not inadvertently pick and install this version of Safari.

Oracle's Revenue Recognition rules prohibit us from discussing certification and release dates, 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.

Safari 3 Certified on Mac OS X for E-Business Suite Release 12

macosx_logo.jpg

It might seem a little anachronistic, but this really is a new certification announcement:  Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 is now certified with Safari 3 with the Java 5 plug-in on Apple Mac OS X 10.5 ("Leopard") and 10.5 ("Tiger") desktop operating systems.

Prerequisites

  • Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.0.4 or higher, including 12.1.1
  • Safari 3.2.1
  • Java 1.5.0_x

Other Mac Certifications Still Underway

Certifications for the Safari 4 browser are still underway.  We also have plans to certify Mac OS X 10.6 ("Snow Leopard") for both Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i and 12.  I don't have firm schedules for either of these certifications yet, but you're welcome to monitor or subscribe to this blog for updates. 

Is Your Organisation Running Mac OS X?

Apple users can be pretty vocal, so I'm a bit surprised by the lack of notable escalations over the delays in getting this particular certification out.  This is even more surprising considering the efficiency of Apple's Software Updates tool, which pushed out Safari 3 in early 2008 and Safari 4 a few months ago.

I've previously written about my impression that Macs are creeping into the enterprise.  This is true within Oracle, where there is a growing number of people (including myself) who have opted buy Macs out of their own pocket instead of going with Oracle's WinTel procurement process.

My anecdotal impressions aren't backed by a large amount of data yet, but I'd like to correct that.  If your organisation has end-users running Mac OS X connecting to the E-Business Suite, we'd be interested in hearing from you.  Detailed information from you can help us make prioritization decisions for desktop platform certifications.  Feel free to post a comment or drop me a private email with details about:

  • Your EBS release
  • Number of Mac clients
  • OS X versions deployed
  • Browsers versions deployed

Apple released OS X v10.4.7 ("Tiger") at the end of June 2006.  This release is now certified as a desktop client for the E-Business Suite on Intel and PowerPC platforms.

Apple Tiger Box:

This OS X v10.4.7 certification includes Safari 2.0.4 and Java 5 plug-in (version 1.5.0_06), as well. 

Prerequisites

Mandatory prerequisites for this certification include:
  • 11.5.9 Consolidated Update #2 or 11.5.10.2
  • Applications Technology Group Family Pack H Rollup 4 (11i.ATG_PF.H RUP 4, Patch 4676589)
  • Forms Patchset 17 with April 2006 CPU
There are a few additional product-specific prerequisites as well; check Note 387180.1 for full details.

On a side note, as a longtime PC user with Mac-envy, I'm looking forward to the day when I have a business reason to participate in the certification efforts for these configurations.
