1.4 About E-Business Suite Components

As part of AXF configuration, solution integrators configure the following E-Business Suite components.

1.4.1 PLL Modules

In AXF, user interface .PLL extension modules are used to access workflow tasks and documents associated with business records.

The Custom.PLL module is slightly modified during installation to call AXF functions. It notifies AXF each time an E-Business Suite event occurs, allowing AXF to determine if it relates to AXF functionality. See "Compiling E-Business Suite Forms".

The AXF_Custom.PLL component performs the following functions:

  • Calls out to a web service to execute an AXF Command

  • Responds to the following AXF response commands:

    • Open Browser

    • Terminate Conversation

  • Renders menus to expose AXF functionality based on the E-Business Suite configuration database.

1.4.2 PL/SQL Procedures

The following PL/SQL procedures are provided. (In some cases, separate E-Business Suite release 11 and 12 versions are provided.) See "Configuring the E-Business Suite Database".

PL/SQL Procedure Purpose
AXF_CREATE_TABLES_SYNONYM.sql Creates the tables and synonyms used by AXF.
AXF_ADD_EBS_ATTACHMENT_PROC.sql Creates a stored procedure that adds an attachment to a transaction in E-Business Suite.
AXF_SOAP_CALL_PROC.sql Creates a stored procedure to make SOAP calls from PL/SQL.
AXF_APPS_INIT.sql Required for EBS attachment.
AXF_EBS_PROPERTIES.sql Populates the AFX_PROPERTIES table with security information for various E-Business Suite calls to AXF.
