Overview of Concurrent Processing

Concurrent processing is a feature that allows you to run a non-interactive, data-dependent function, such as a report or program, simultaneously with online operations. With concurrent processing, you can complete non-interactive tasks without interfering with the interactive work you perform at your computer.

An example of concurrent processing occurs when you use the Post Journals window in your Oracle General Ledger application. Once you specify the journal batches to post and choose the Post button, your Oracle General Ledger application uses concurrent processing to post the journal batch entries without further involvement from you. Meanwhile, your computer is still available for you to continue doing other work in Oracle Applications.

Oracle Applications runs all of its reports and programs as concurrent processes.
