Sometimes you come across beautiful things in your life, you wish you had known before, because they were there all the time, waiting for that moment to be discovered â€“ by you.
Recently I discovered one of these things. Shamefully I confess, this brilliant feature of RMAN is around for some time â€“ since 10g already â€“ but I have never been lucky enough to explore it, until recently. (more…)
Oracle recently announced certification for E-Business Suite 11i on Oracle Enterprise Linux 5
So, today I gave it a try, together with a colleague.
The requirements for installing E-Business Suite on OEL5 can be found in Metalink Note 316806.1
Basically this was the note I followed.
We set up a Virtual Machine running OEL5 â€“ Update 1, and applied all the prerequisites mentioned in the Installation Update Notes (Metalink Note 316806.1)
With the end of full support for RedHat’s Enterpris Linux 4 as of May 15 (2008), Oracle was just in time announcing support for Enterprise Linux 5 (both Oracle’s and Red Hat’s) for Oracle E-Business Suite 11i.
Oracle Enterprise Linux 5 has been available for a while now, and the wait for certification with EBS 11i has been long. However, it is here now, and that is what counts.
Also Suse Linux Enterprise Server 10 has been certified.
Find updated information in the Oracle Applications Installation Update Notes (Metalink Note 316806.1).
Have fun migrating!;-)
Today I stumbled on a blog post of Steven Chan, Sr. Director, Oracle Applications Technology Integration at Oracle.
His blog post announces the support for IPv6 for E-Business Suite release 11i and 12.
There have been numerous rumors going around about the IPv4 addresses becoming exhausted in the near future. IPv6 will address this issue amongs others.
The E-Business Suites (11i and R12) are now IPv6 compliant. This means that it is possible to have IPv6 traffic outside the E-Business Suite. an IPv6 to IPv4 reverse proxy architecture takes the IPv6 communication and uses IPv4 to communicate with the E-Business Suite.
Prerequisites for this compliancy are (taken from Metalink Note 567015.1)
- E-Business Suites must be able to use a reverse proxy (see MetaLink Note 287176.1 for instructions on 11i, R12 doesn’t need additional work on this);
- Web browsers should be using Sun Java Plug-in version 1.5 or later to communicate with E-Business Suite (see MetaLink Note 290807.1 for 11i or MetaLink Note 393931.1 for R12);
- Client-server applications must be served from an IPv6-compliant desktop server (see MetaLink Note 277535.1 for instructions.

Being the last day of the conference there was a shorter program, only until early afternoon.
I must say, this has been a very valuable conference for me. I have seen great presentations, received very valuable information on current and future products of Oracle and, not the least important, I met some great people.
Today I attended two sessions:
RAC on E-Business Suite â€“ Sweating the details â€“ by Kurt Forshee, DCC Services, LLC
Setup Management for E-Business Suite with iSetup â€“ by Uma Prabhala, Oracle (more…)
I am supposed to be at a party tonight, but I am too exhausted, to be honest to go out and my head is too full with all kinds of new stuff… (poor me!;-)
Today was another day of very interesting stuff, even though a couple of presentations covered things already covered in earlier presentations. For example, AIA is all over the place here. You cannot attend almost any presentation about E-Business Suite or SOA that doesn’t have at least a number of slides dealing with the subject. That doesn’t make things less interesting though, because AIA is the future for any company dealing with multiple Oracel Applications; not necessarily being Oracle E-Business Suite, that is. That brings me to something that I find confusing sometimes, especially at a conference like this. Oracle E-Business Suite is often referred to as Oracle Applications, but Oracle Applications are also referred to as the complete suite of Oracle applications, like Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, Siebel, JDEdwards and so on. These are all Oracle â€œApplicationsâ€. Therefore, I mostly prefer Oracle E-Business Suite rather than Oracle Applications. But that aside.
