Oracle Workflow Hardware and Software Requirements

The components of Oracle Workflow require the following hardware and software configurations:

Warning: Please follow the necessary security precautions against viruses and unauthorized access when installing any software that allows remote access.

Attention: Oracle Net Services require and only support the use of Microsoft's TCP/IP drivers.

Attention: While the version of Oracle Workflow offered to Oracle8i Standard Edition customers is exactly the same as the version offered to Oracle8i Enterprise Edition customers, it is important to note that Oracle Workflow leverages Oracle8i functionality. Consequently, using an Oracle8i Standard Edition database limits some of the features available for use by the Oracle Workflow Business Event System.

For example:

In Oracle9i, however, these restrictions no longer apply. Exactly the same functionality is available with Oracle Workflow in an Oracle9i Standard Edition database as in an Oracle9i Enterprise Edition database.

Attention: The Microsoft Outlook E-mail Security Update that was released on June 7, 2000 desupports the MAPI Commmon Messaging Calls (CMC) interface used by the Oracle Workflow MAPI Mailer. (See: OL2000: Developer Information About the Outlook E-mail Security Update, Q262/7/01.ASP.) As a result, the Oracle Workflow MAPI Mailer is not certified on any Microsoft Windows platforms where this Microsoft Outlook E-mail Security Update or above has been applied. The Oracle Workflow MAPI Mailer is not certified on Windows XP.

Workflow customers running on NT/2000 are certified to install the UNIX version of the Oracle Workflow Notification Mailer (on UNIX) and connect to a Workflow Server database running on NT/2000.
