Where is Oracle Utilities Application Framework V3?

You may of noticed that the latest version of the Oracle Utilities Application Framework is V4.0.1. The last release of the Framework was V2.2. So what happened to V3?

The short answer is that there is no V3 of the framework.

The long answer is that the Oracle Utilities Application Framework has long been associated with Oracle Utilities Customer Care And Billing and Oracle Enterprise Taxation Management only. As more and more of the Oracle Tax And Utilities products are migrated onto the framework the association betweent eh original products on the framework is less appropriate. Therefore it was decided to pick a version number to emphasize the decouplinf of the releases of the Framework with any particular product.

To illustrate this, the Oracle Mobile Workforce Management (MWM) V2.0.0 product uses Oracle Utilities Applicaton Framework V4.0.1. If we used the old numberings schema then MWM would be V4.0.1 which makes no sense, given the last release of MWM was V1.x

The framework has its own development team and product management. It basicaly has its own schedule (though it is influenced by the products that use it still - which makes sense).

So that s the reasoning around the version numbering change for the framework.

Comments:

Thanks for the info! I was wondering if perhaps V3 was an internal development only release. My first notice of the difference in numbers was with CC&B 2.3 being released with FW 2.2. This article will help when explaining the new number differences to clients who are familiar with the FW and APP having the same release number.
