What's New in Oracle Workflow?

Oracle Workflow Release 2.6.3 includes the following enhancements for administrators:

Oracle Workflow provides a standard notification mailer service component called Workflow Notification Mailer which is used by default. It is now also possible to configure and run multiple notification mailer service components. Java-based notification mailers are configured and run exclusively through the Workflow Manager component of Oracle Enterprise Manager.
The Java-based Workflow Notification Mailer supports sending both individual and summary e-mail notifications. You no longer need to run a separate notification mailer to send summary notifications. See: Implementing Notification Mailers, Oracle Workflow Administrator's Guide.
Note: The previous C-based Notification Mailer is obsolete in this release. Also, Java-based notification mailers do not use text files to define configuration parameters and tags; instead, all configuration settings are entered in Workflow Manager.
Note: Oracle Workflow no longer supports the old MAPI-compliant mailer because the Microsoft Outlook E-mail Security Update that was released on June 7, 2000 desupports the MAPI Common Messaging Calls (CMC) interface used by that mailer. (See: OL2000: Developer Information About the Outlook E-mail Security Update, Q262/7/01.ASP.) Oracle Workflow also no longer supports parsing an inbound SMTP file for response processing with UNIX Sendmail. Instead, the new architecture of the Java-based Workflow Notification Mailer uses an IMAP inbox for response processing. The same Workflow Notification Mailer can be used regardless of the platform on which you deploy it.
