What is Oracle Applications/Oracle e-Business Suite ??

To facilitate big businesses, Oracle Corporation have created collection of software in the category of ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) known as modules, that are integrated to talk to each other and known as Oracle Applications or E-Business Suite. Eg. Oracle Inventory deals with the items you maintain in stock, warehouse etc. Oracle Receivables and Oracle Order Management are dealing with customers like orders given by Customers and Money collected from customers. Oracle General Ledger receives information from all the different transaction modules and summarizes them in order to create profit and loss statements, reports for paying Taxes etc. Oracle Cost Management helps to maintain the costs of items in your inventory and the immediate modules that it interacts with are Oracle Inventory, Oracle Bills of Material, Order Management.

Oracle Applications Previous Releases
10.7 : Oldest Release of Oracle ERP which is character, thin client based. Oracle has stopped support for this release from year 1998. 11 : 11i : R12 : Latest Release by Oracle In the chain of Oracle ERP Releases.

Whats new in Oracle Apps R12
Oracle Applications Release 12 is the latest release in the chain of E-Business Suite Releases by Oracle. This is a step towards Oracle Fusion as this uses Oracle Fusion Middleware applications in its base e.g. Oracle application Server 10g, Oracle BI Discoverer 10g etc. This release came up with the new file system model i.e. segregation of Code, Data and Configurations to have easy maintenance and to avert NFS mount issues on shared Application tier configuration systems. Also Autoconfig will not write anything in APPL_TOP, COMMON_TOP area in R12. All instance specific configurations, log files are written in INST_TOP area. Instance Home provides the ability to share Applications and technology stack code among multiple instances. The major changes in this release are : On Middle Tier

Application Server version is changed by 10g Application Server i.e. 10.1.3.X mod_jserv is replaced by mod_oc4j

• • •

Apache which is part of Application Server mentioned above is changed from version 1.3.19 to 1.3.34 Long running Forms & Reports Version 6i (8.0.6) are replaced by Forms & Reports Version 10g i.e. 10.1.2.X Java/ JDK version 1.3.X or 1.4.X will be replaced by JDK 1.5.X

On File System

There are three ORACLE_HOME, one for Web Server another for Forms & Reports and third for Database with the upgraded versions i.e.10g AS for Web Server, 10g AS for forms & reports , 10g R2 for database A new top INSTANCE_TOP is introduced in Release 12 for configuration and log files along with the other TOP's in existing in 11i.

Oracle Apps R12 Architecture
R12 file system has come up with new model - Code, Data, Configurations are segregated nicely to have easy maintenance, to avert NFS mount issues on shared appl tier configuration systems. Auto-config will not write anything in APPL_TOP, COMMON_TOP area in R12. All instance specific configurations, log files are written in INST_TOP area. Instance Home provides the ability to share Applications and technology stack code among multiple instances In Release 12, the application tier contains Oracle Application Server 10g (OAS10g). Three servers or service groups comprise the basic application tier for Oracle Applications:

Web services

The Web services component of Oracle Application Server processes requests received over the network from the desktop clients.

Forms services

Forms services in Oracle Applications Release 12 are provided by the Forms listener servlet or Form Socket mode, which facilitates the use of firewalls, load balancing, proxies, and other networking options.

Concurrent Processing server

Processes that run on the Concurrent Processing server are called concurrent requests. When you submit such a request, either through HTML-based or Forms-based Applications, a row is inserted into a database table specifying the program to be run. A

If you dig into the INST_TOP you will find that it only contains all the configuration files. APPL_TOP and new INST_TOP.

just create a new instance_top with proper config files and NFS Mount the middle tier in the . Another advantage of the Instance Home is that the Autoconfig writes only in INST_TOP so APPL_TOP and ORACLE_HOME can also be made read only file system if required. To create a new instance that shares an existing middle-tier. Advantages of new INSTANCE HOME • • • • The additional Instance Home makes the middle tier more easy to manage and organized since the data is kept separate from the config files. The Instance Home also has the ability to share the Applications and Technology stack code across multiple instances. log files. SSL certificates etc. This contains all the config files.INSTANCE TOP Instance home is the top-level directory for an Applications Instance which is known as Instance Home and is denoted the environment variable $INST_TOP.

This creation of a "multi-node" E-Business Suite instance is frequently done to lower cost of ownership (many small machines are cheaper than one big one). When configuring Oracle E-Business Suite to use a shared application tier file system. this is set to $APPL_TOP /fnd/12. others do not). and Concurrent Processing (Batch).

A multi-node installation of Release 12 supports both shared and non-shared application tier file systems. all application tier files (with the specific exception of the Instance Home file system) are installed on a shared disk resource.3 Oracle Home file system is mounted to this node from the primary application tier node. You can configure both the Application tier node as follows: Primary Application Tier Node A primary application tier node is the first application tier node where the APPL_TOP.1. Each application tier has a unique Instance Home file system associated with it. Service A service is a functional set of Oracle E-Business Suite application processes running on one or more nodes.

Shared Application Tier File System Layout When configuring Oracle E-Business Suite to use a shared application tier file system.(Batch) services.1. . The file system “/ebiz/oracle/inst” contains the Instance Home. or Concurrent Processing (Batch) services. The file systems "/ebiz/oracle/inst/apps/VIS_appl_node1" and "/ebiz/oracle/inst/apps/VIS_appl_node2" are only visible on the respective nodes. and "/ ebiz/oracle/VIS " contains the APPL_TOP. Server-appl_node2 is the secondary application tier node.1. You can configure the services running on an application tier node to match the node's intended role Example Shared File System The following is an example of mount points shared on each application tier node: • • • • COMMON_TOP: /ebiz/oracle/VIS/apps/apps_st/comn APPL_TOP: /ebiz/oracle/VIS/apps/apps_st/appl OracleAS 10. entitled "Shared Application Tier File System".1.3 In the figure shown below.2 and 10.3 Oracle Home. and uses the file systems “/ebiz/oracle/VIS" and “/ebiz/oracle/inst”.
