Advanced Topics

This part of the Developer's Guide provides information about some of the advanced features that are part of Oracle Fusion. These advanced features include the Oracle WebLogic Server, repositories used in Oracle Fusion, profiles, Oracle Fusion application seed data, and the Oracle Fusion Database Schema Deployment Framework. Also included in this part, are procedures for debugging Oracle Application Development Framework (Oracle ADF) and service-oriented architecture (SOA) applications.

Oracle WebLogic Server: Deployment is the process of packaging application files as an archive file and transferring it to a target application server. You can use JDeveloper to deploy your ADF applications directly to the WebLogic Server or indirectly to an archive file as the deployment target. You can then install this archive file to the target server. You can also run applications in JDeveloper using the Integrated WebLogic Server.

The Creating Repository Connections chapter provides information about the repositories that are used in Oracle Fusion and describes how to connect to each of these repositories using JDeveloper. The repositories include the Oracle Data Integrator (ODI), and Oracle Business Activity Monitoring (Oracle BAM).

A profile is a set of changeable options that affect the way your application looks and behaves. Profiles control how applications operate for users by the values that are set. Profiles can be set at different levels depending on how the profiles are defined.

Oracle Fusion Middleware Application Seed Data is the essential data to enable Oracle Fusion Middleware applications. Some examples include static lists of values, functional or error messages, and lookup values. The Seed Data Utility, which runs under JDeveloper, provides data extraction from the development instances of Oracle Fusion Applications. It also loads the extracted data to the customer database instances of Oracle Fusion Applications by integrating with Oracle ADF TaskManager. This part discusses how to set up your seed data environment, and how to extract and upload seed data.

The Using the Oracle Fusion Database Schema Deployment Framework (applxdf) includes JDeveloper plugins that handle applications-specific metadata, datamodeling standards for applications database modeling, and deployment of database schema objects to a target application database. The database schema deployment component can be invoked standalone outside of JDeveloper, such as from the command line, Build scripts, or a Patching Tool like Task Director. The Database Schema Deployment Framework is packaged and delivered to Oracle Fusion Applications and technology teams.

The Improving Performance chapter contains performance, scalability, and reliability (PSR) best practices documented based on performance analysis of several prototypical Oracle Fusion Applications as well as various tests conducted by the Oracle Fusion middleware performance team. The outcome of this analysis is captured in this chapter. It includes best practices for coding and tuning ADF Business Components-based applications with performance, scalability, and reliability in mind.

The Debugging Oracle ADF and Oracle SOA Suite chapter describes the process of debugging your Oracle Application Development Framework (Oracle ADF) and Oracle SOA Suite applications. It describes how to diagnose and correct errors and how to use the debugging tools.

Designing and Securing View Objects for Oracle Business Intelligence Applications provides guidelines and best practices for designing and securing view objects and other supporting ADF Business Components objects for use by Oracle Fusion Business Intelligence (BI) Applications.

Implementing ADF Desktop Integration describes how Oracle Application Development Framework Desktop Integration makes it possible to combine third party desktop productivity applications with Oracle Fusion web applications, so you can use a program like Microsoft Excel as an interface to access Oracle Fusion web application data. Currently, ADF Desktop Integration supports using an Excel workbook to access descriptive and key flexfield data in your application.

The Oracle Metadata Services (MDS) framework allows you to create customizable applications. The Creating Customizable Applications chapter describes how to configure your application at design time so that it can be customized. It also provides information about how to customize your applications using JDeveloper and WebCenter Composer.

Working with Extensions to Oracle Enterprise Scheduler explains how to use extensions to Oracle Enterprise Scheduler to manage job request submissions in the context of Oracle Fusion Applications.

Oracle Enterprise Scheduler Security explains how Oracle Enterprise Scheduler Security features provide access control for Oracle Enterprise Scheduler resources and application identity propagation for job execution.
