POXCON is an immediate concurrent program. It receives pipe signal from the application when a request is made for approval/reservations/receipts.

 In the options field of the concurrent program you can enter something similar to below.

-cp <your custom lib pathused by Java Conc Prog> :/home/xxvisiondev/XXDEVDB/comn/java/appsborg. zip:/home/xxvisiondev/XXDEVDB/comn/java

 You will need to initialize the global variables first using fnd_global.initialize
DECLARE
v_session_id INTEGER := userenv(‘sessionid’) ;
BEGIN
fnd_global.initialize
(

SESSION_ID        =>    v_session_id
,USER_ID                =>    <your user id from fnd_user.user_id>|
,RESP_ID                =>    <You may use Examine from the screen PROFILE/RESP_ID>
,RESP_APPL_ID           =>    <You may use Examine from the screen PROFILE/RESP_APPL_ID>
,SECURITY_GROUP_ID      =>    0
,SITE_ID                =>    NULL
,LOGIN_ID               =>    3115003–Any number here
,CONC_LOGIN_ID          =>    NULL
,PROG_APPL_ID           =>    NULL
,CONC_PROGRAM_ID        =>    NULL
,CONC_REQUEST_ID        =>    NULL
,CONC_PRIORITY_REQUEST  =>    NULL
) ;
commit ;
END ;
/
Optionally you may use fnd_global.apps_initialize, which internally calls fnd_global.initialize
  fnd_global.apps_initialize(user_id => :user_id,
resp_id => :resp_id,
resp_appl_id => :resp_appl_id,
security_group_id => :security_group_id,
server_id => :server_id);

Generally speaking, the tabs on a OA Framework page are nothing but the SubMenus. By entering menu exclusion against the responsibility, you can remove the tab from self service page.

In self service, you wish to change the background color and the foreground text of the OA

After 11.5.10, FND Logging  can be used for debugging Oracle iProcurement.
Prior to 11.5.10
 —-STEPS IN A NUTSHELL—–
cd $ORACLE_HOME/../iAS/Apache
vi $ORACLE_HOME/../iAS/Apache/Jserv/etc/ssp_init.txt
DebugOutput=/home/<<SID>>/ora9/iAS/Apache/Apache/logs/debug.log
DebugLevel=5
DebugSwitch=ON
vi $ORACLE_HOME/../iAS/Apache/Jserv/etc/jserv.conf
ApJServLogLevel debug
vi $ORACLE_HOME/../iAS/Apache/Jserv/etc/jserv.properties
log=true

If cost of the workflow activity is greater than 50, then the workflow activity will be processed in background mode only, and it won’t be processed in online mode.

Yes we can name certain DFF’s and their location.

Core flexfields are:

  • Job
  • Position
  • Grade
  • Competency

  •  if initiating the process using start_process, do the below

               wf_engine.threshold := -1;
               wf_engine.createprocess(l_itemtype
               ,l_itemkey
               ,'<YOUR PROCESS NAME>’);
                wf_engine.startprocess(l_itemtype, l_itemkey)

  • When initiating the workflow process through an event subscription, set the Execution Condition Phase to be equal to or above 100 for it to be executed by background process.

In order to make a responsibility accessible from an external web tier, you must setprofile option Responsibility Trust Level at responsibility level to External. Onlythose responsibilities that have this profile option against them will beaccessible from ExternalMiddle tiers.

Element entry is to define element yet here enter that is Earning element or deduction element then calculate net pay.

Use table ad_bugs, in which column bug_number is the patch number.

SELECT bug_number
,to_char(creation_date, ‘DD-MON-YYYY HH24:MI:SS’) dated
FROM   apps.ad_bugs
WHERE  bug_number = TRIM(‘&bug_number’) ;

Yes, this can be done without customization, i.e. by using OA Framework Extension coupled with Personalization.

Implement the following Steps :-

  1. Extend the VO ( View Object ), to implement the new SQL required to support the LOV.
  2. Substitute the base VO, by using jpximport [ similar to as explained in LINK ]
  3. Personalize the LOV Region, by clicking on Add New Item. While adding the new Item, you will cross reference the newly added column to VO.

If this profile option is set to a value of external against a server, then it signifies thatthe specific mid-tier is External i.e. it will be exposed to the www. In other words this server isnot within the firewall of your client. The idea behind this profile option is to flag such middle-tierso that special restrictions can be applied against its security, which me a very restricted setof responsibilities will be available from such Middle-Tier.

This really depends upon how many periods are regularly reported upon, how many periods are left open etc. You can then decide to partition on period_name, or period ranges, oron the status of the GL Period.

Assuming your executable script is LOADPO.prog, then use the commands below

cd $XXPO_TOP/bin
ln -s $FND_TOP/bin/fndcpesr $XXPO_TOP/bin/LOADPO

Document manger runs within the concurrent manager in Oracle Applications.  When an application uses a Document Manager, it sends a pipe signal which is picked up by the document manager.

There are two mechanisms by which to trace the document manager

  • Set the debugging on by using profile option
    • STEP @Set profile option “Concurrent:Debug Flags” to TCTM1

This profile should only generate debugs when set at Site level(I think, as I have only tried site), because Document Manager runs     in a different session.

    • STEP @Bounce the Document Managers
    • STEP @Retry the Workflow to generate debugs.
    • STEP @Reset profile option “Concurrent:Debug Flags” to blank
    • STEP @have a look at debug information in table fnd_concurrent_debug_info
  • Enable tracing for the document managers

This can be done by setting profile option “Initialization SQL Statement – Custom” against your username before reproducing the issue. The value of this profile will be set so as to enable trace using event 10046, level 12.

Costing: Recording the costs of an assignment for accounting or reporting purposes. Using Oracle Payroll, you can calculate and trfer costing information to your general ledger and into systems for project management or labor distribution.

If the concurrent program is of type PL/SQL, you can assign a value of 1 to the “retcode” OUT Parameter.

For a Java Concurrent program, use the code similar to below
ReqCompletion lRC;
//get handle on request completion object for reporting status
lRC = pCpContext.getReqCompletion();
lRC.setCompletion(ReqCompletion.WARNING, “WARNING”);

Costing types are:

  • Fixed costed
  • Costed
  • Distributed

FNDLOAD can not be used in the scenario. You can use migrator available in “OracleiSetup” Responsibility

The official stance is that RBO is no longer supported by 10g.

Yes, Oracle does support partitioning of tables in Oracle Applications. There are several implementations that partition on GL_BALANCES. However your client must buy licenses to if they desire to partition tables. To avoid the cost of licensing you may suggest the clients may decide to permanently close their older GL Periods, such that historical records canbe archived. Note: Before running the archival process the second time, you must clear down the archive table GL_ARCHIVE_BALANCES (don’t forget to export archive data to a tape).

If your Oracle Applications instance is on 10g, then you can decide to run stats forSYS schema. This can be done by exec dbms_stats.gather_schema_stats(‘SYS’);Alternately using commanddbms_stats.gather_schema_stats(‘SYS’,cascade=>TRUE,degree=>20);I will prefer the former with default values.If you wish to delete the stats for SYS use exec dbms_stats.delete_schema_stats(‘SYS’);You can schedule a dbms_job for running stats for SYS schema.

Elements are nothing but the components of the salary.

Eg. Basic, HRA, TA, BONUS, Lo etc., There are 2 types of Processing

  • Recurring: if an entry of this element applies in every period until the entry is ended
  • Non Recurring: if an entry applies in one pay period only.

“Run Reports”. And why not, the Form Function for this screen has a parameter towhich we pass name of the “Request Group”, hence securing the list of Concurrent Programsthat are visible in “Run Request” Form. Just so that you know, there are over 600 form functionsfor “Run Reports”

Oracle ships a file named server.xml with each bc4j package. You will need to ftp that file alongside other bc4j objects(VO’s, EO’s, AM, Classes etc).

Opening the server.xml will load the complete package starting from AM(application module). This is a mandatory step when building Extensions to framework.

By running below scripts. These are both the same scripts, but with differing parameters.

  • $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/awrrpt.sql
  • $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/awrrpti.sql

You can not implement interactive messages, i.e. a message will give multiple options for Response. The best you can get from Forms Personalization to do is popup up Message with OK option.

In oracle HRMS there are so many modules like Core HR, Payroll, Self Service HR, Oracle learning management, iRecruitment, Time and Labour, Compensation Work bench, Oracle Advanced Benefits, Performance Management System etc., Core HR and System Administrator are the Heart of Oracle HRMS.

All basic set ups will do in Core HR with the help of System Administrator.

In system administrator we will create all the Users and Responsibilities, Flex fields, Profile values etc., In core HR we will create Organizations, Locations, Jobs, Positions, Grades, Organization Hierarchy, position Hierarchy, We will create all the employees also. These are the Basic setups in HRMS.

You will need to do the below steps:

  • Go to Mid Tier, and open $OA_HTML/cabo/styles/custom.xss
  • Enter below text( change colours as needed)

<style name=”DarkBackground”>
<property name=”background-color”>#000066</property>
</style>
<style name=”TextForeground”>
<property name=”color”>#0000FF</property>
</style>

  • cd $OA_HTML/cabo/styles/cache
  • Take a backup of all the css files.
  • Delete all the files of following pattern oracle-desktop*.css

The idea here is to delete the cache. Next time when you logon to Oracle Apps Self Service, the Framework will rebuild the css file if found missing for your browser.

You can extend the AM in jDeveloper, but it doesn’t work( at least it didn’t work in 11.5.9).

Termination Rules of an Element:

  • Actual Termination: For a nonrecurring element, select Actual Termination if you want the entries to close down at the end of the pay period in which the employee leaves.
  • Final Close: if you want the entries to stay open beyond the employee’s leaving date so that you can continue to pay the employee.
  • The Last Standard Process date defaults to the last day of the pay period in which the employee is terminated, but you can set it to a later period when you terminate an employee.
