This chapter describes resources and dependencies that you must be familiar with before you implement Oracle Contracts. Topics include:
Before proceeding with implementation of Oracle Contracts and its dependencies, you must verify that you have installed Oracle Applications correctly. For more information, see Oracle Applications Installing Oracle Applications Guide.
Oracle Contracts depends on other Oracle modules and applications to provide additional functionality. Mandatory dependencies are required for Oracle Contracts to function properly. Conditional dependencies, when integrated, provide additional capabilities.
This section describes mandatory and optional dependencies for Oracle Contracts.
For all the features to function properly, Oracle Contracts requires installation and implementation of the following Oracle modules:
Oracle General Ledger: Enables setup of ledgers and books. For complete setup information, see the Oracle General Ledger User Guide. Set of Books are used as part of the setup for AutoNumbering of clauses. For more information, see the Setting Up AutoNumbering section.

Oracle XML Publisher: Provides information about setting up and using RTF and PDF templates that are used to preview and print contracts and contract templates. For more information, see the Oracle XML Publisher Users Guide.
The following conditional dependencies provide additional functionality but are not required for Oracle Contracts to function:
Oracle Procurement Contracts: Needed to implement procurement contracts
Oracle Sales Contracts: Needed to implement sales contracts
Refer to the available Oracle Contracts documentation to ensure correct installation, implementation, and setup of dependencies.
