JD Edwards EnterpriseOne is a complete suite of modular, preintegrated, industry-specific business applications designed for rapid deployment, ease of administration, and low total cost of ownership. It is ideally suited for organizations that manufacture, construct, distribute, service, or manage products or physical assets.
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools is the runtime architecture and integrated development environment at the heart of the EnterpriseOne architecture. JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools is the technology layer that integrates with database systems, web application servers, reporting tools, and other third-party solutions. JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools provides an abstraction layer that allows the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications to function without a direct dependency on the platforms and middleware beneath them.
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools supports the industry's leading hardware, operating systems, and database platforms. Moreover, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications look the same to application users, regardless of the database or hardware platform being used.
The following illustration provides a high-level overview of the components that comprise the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne technology layer. These components enable functionality such as user interface, security, reporting, and so on, across all JD Edwards EnterpriseOne application modules. Although depicted and often named as servers, these are actually logical components, which often can be colocated on the same physical hardware or installed into virtual machines.
This System Overview Guide provides a brief description of each of these technology components within the JD Edwards architecture. The information will help you plan the topology of your JD Edwards EnterpriseOne implementation by helping you understand the general function of each component, which components are mandatory, which are optional, and which components run on which platforms.
