Über dieses Buch

This book is a hands-on, real-world guide to building and implementing a robust Oracle E-Business Suite System using the new Release, EBS 12.2. It explains the rationale for using an Oracle E-business suite environment in a business enterprise and covers the major technology stack changes from EBS version 11i through R12.2. The book clarifies how to build up an EBS environment from a simple single-node installation to a complex multi-node high available setup.

Practical Oracle E-Business Suite focuses on release R12.2, but key areas in R12.1 are also covered wherever necessary. Oracle E-Business suite R12.2 includes major changes in Technology Stack components and introduced many new features. And these changes and new features must be added to the skill set of those individuals responsible for implementing and managing Oracle EBS.

Practical Oracle E-Business Suite provides detailed instructions for the Installation of EBS R12.2 in single and multi-node configurations, the logic and methodology used in EBS patching, and cloning of EBS single-node and complex multi-node environments configured with RAC.

This book also provides filtered valuable information about such areas as FMW used in EBS 12.2, as well as performance tuning and EBS 12.2 on engineered system implementations.

The following are the key areas of coverage:

Introduction to Oracle E-Business Suite, general definition of the EBS product families and the overview of the new system architecture implemented in EBS 12.2EBS 12.2 single node/multi-node installations along with the EBS 12.2 upgradesEBS 12.2 Application and database tier components along with details about the newly introduced EBS 12.2 FMW components, the new application filesystem (dual fs) and the new patching concept called online patching.Administration utilities including adconfig and rapid clone, along with their usages for managing and maintaining the EBS 12.2 systems.Security features and key areas for performance tuning in EBS 12.2Implementing EBS 12.2 on Engineered Systems(Exadata, ODA and Exalogic)

Chapter 1. Architecture

In this chapter, we will introduce Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS). We will first cover the history and evolution of EBS. We will then cover the EBS applications and the technical architecture of EBS by exploring the architectural model, EBS file system, database tier, and application tier, including the technological components and technological stack changes from the earlier releases to the latest release, EBS 12.2. For such a complex product as EBS, we believe this foundation is necessary in order to administer and troubleshoot it properly.

Chapter 2. Installation and Configuration

In the previous chapter, we discussed in detail Oracle E-Business Suite and its underlying architecture. In this chapter, we will talk about the Oracle E-Business Suite installation process. Planning for the installation and preparing the system are the key factors for a successful installation and for successful project rollouts. Inappropriate system design and incorrect configuration will lead to many problems during implementation and the go-live phase.

Chapter 3. Oracle E-Business Suite Upgrades

If you’re an experienced apps DBA and aware of Oracle EBS patching utilities in versions 12.1 and 12.2, including FMW patching, then you should proceed with this chapter.

Syed Zaheer, Erman Arslan

Chapter 4. Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 File System

The file system in EBS 12.2 is a crucial topic, so it is impossible not to mention it in this book. In earlier chapters, we introduced the file system structure of EBS 12.2, as well as the EBS environment variables, which are tightly related with the file system directories used in EBS 12.2. This chapter is dedicated to the file system; having a deeper understanding of the file system will give you a better understanding of all the technology components of EBS 12.2.

Syed Zaheer, Erman Arslan

Chapter 5. Patching Concepts

In this chapter, we will explain patching concepts in EBS 12.2. We will provide the information about the components and utilities used in patching and shed light on the logic behind the patching methods. In addition, we will cover the usages and roles of the dual file system and edition-based redefinition in EBS 12.2 patching. Further, we will introduce the new patching cycle concept in EBS 12.2 as well as the patch phases used in the online patching concept and explain best practices for EBS 12.2 patching. Both application tier and database tier patching will be covered in this chapter.

Syed Zaheer, Erman Arslan

Chapter 6. Working with the Applications DBA Online Patching Tool (adop)

In the previous chapter, you learned about the patching utilities used for applying different kind of patches in EBS 12.2, the new online patching concept, and the patching tools and technology improvements delivered in this new release of EBS to support the new patching concepts. In that chapter you also focused on online patching because it is a new concept delivered with EBS 12.2 and it is the most common patching activity that you will use in terms of EBS 12.2 patching.

Syed Zaheer, Erman Arslan

Chapter 7. Managing FMW/WebLogic

In this chapter, we will introduce Oracle Fusion Middleware (FMW). We will explain the components and services provided by FMW and explain how to use the FMW components used in EBS 12.2. Furthermore, we will cover the advantages of using FMW in EBS 12.2 and go into the details of managing, tuning, diagnosing, and patching the FMW environment in EBS 12.2.

Chapter 8. AutoConfig to Manage EBS System Configuration Changes

Maintaining systems is one of the most important tasks that an apps DBA or technical owner of a system can do. For maintaining Oracle EBS, there are many tools available, and each tool has its own purpose.

Syed Zaheer, Erman Arslan

Chapter 9. SYSADMIN Fundamentals

The Oracle application system administrator is responsible for setting up appropriate control access and managing product application files and configuration files. The activities involved for performing these functions are discussed in this chapter.

Chapter 10. Oracle EBS Concurrent Managers

Oracle concurrent processing is one of the key components of Oracle EBS systems. This chapter covers the different types of concurrent managers and how you can utilize them to meet the enterprise business requirements. It’s a primary duty of an apps DBA to maintain the concurrent managers without disruption. Any failure on the concurrent processing node will impact the business. So, in this chapter, you will see how you can monitor, use, and manage concurrent processing.

Syed Zaheer, Erman Arslan

Chapter 11. Cloning Oracle EBS Systems

This chapter briefly introduces the importance of clone environments in business environments running production systems. It covers the detailed procedures of cloning in the Oracle EBS environment for different deployment topologies like single node to multinode, multinode to single node, and RAC to non-RAC.

Syed Zaheer, Erman Arslan

Chapter 12. An Introduction to Oracle EBS Security

Security is one of the most critical aspects of any business application. With increased sophistication in which the business applications are attacked and the continuous demands of business in the wake of competition, it is becoming more challenging to provide mechanisms to protect from all kinds of vulnerabilities.

Syed Zaheer, Erman Arslan

Chapter 13. Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 Performance Recommendations

Performance tuning has been always an important task in Oracle systems. Oracle databases, Oracle applications, and even Oracle engineered systems work better in terms of performance when they are tuned properly.

Syed Zaheer, Erman Arslan

Chapter 14. Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 on Engineered Systems

Although the name of this chapter contains Engineered Systems, this chapter is mostly concentrates on a single engineered system named Exadata, which is the most widely used Oracle engineered system of all time. Because engineered systems such as Exalytics and SuperCluster are not that suitable for EBS 12.2, most customers prefer to place their EBS databases in Exadata to utilize an engineered system for EBS environments.
