1Introduction

Overview

Supporting every JD Edwards EnterpriseOne installation is a JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Release, which delivers a platform with an innovative user experience, scalability, high performance, security and reliability for the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne application modules. Table conversions are a new part of the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Release 9.2 upgrade process and are performed through the Automated Special Instructions (ASI).

This guide is valid for all 32-bit JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Releases 9.2.X. Release specific content is identified within the text. Tools Release 9.2.5 supports Applications Release 9.2 only, while Tools Release 9.2.4 continues to support Applications Release 9.1 and 9.2.

See JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools UX One Deployment and Development Guideto deploy UX One content and develop Oracle JET components for UX One.

Important: EnterpriseOne Tools Release 9.2.1 contains enhancements to the package build process. All Object Librarian type records are inserted into a database repository. Prior to building a full package, you will need to increase the Central Object database by two gigabytes. For more information, see JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Package Management Guide.
Note: If you are implementing Virtual Batch Queues (Release 9.2.5) you must run R986110V|XJDE0001 to clear the Actual Host (F986110.jcfndfuf1) column after you apply the Tools Rollup ESU. You can run the UBE from a development client or web client. The UBE updates the F986110 based on the server maps and only needs to be run once.

64-bit EnterpriseOne Tools Release

Support for 64-bit processing is available with Tools Release 9.2.3 and beyond. To support a flexible adoption two versions are available, 32-bit Tools Release and 64-bit Tools Release. The Enterprise Server and development client are supported for 64-bit processing in Tools Release 9.2.3. Support for upgrading the Deployment Server to 64-bit is available in Tools Release 9.2.4 and beyond.Until you upgrade to a 64-bit Deployment Server and all the associated path codes, 32-bit will be considered the source of truth and all development should be performed on a 32-bit development client.

While it is possible to upgrade to Tools Release 9.2.3 (64-bit) directly, the recommendation is a phased approach. To reduce the number of variables, upgrade to Tools Release 9.2.3 (32-bit) first. Once validated, the upgrade to Tools Release 9.2.3 (64-bit) can then proceed.

EnterpriseOne Tools Release Support Policy

Refer to the Lifetime Support Policy and Tools Release support policy published on updatecenter.oracle.com.

Tools Release 9.2.3 provides 64-bit processing on the Enterprise Server and Tools Release 9.2.4 provides 64-bit processing on the Deployment Server. Below details the support for 64-bit processing:

  • Tool Releases, 9.2.x continue to run on 64-bit operating systems, databases, and web application servers according to the Certifications published on My Oracle Support.

  • Enterprise Server foundation systems and business functions that are compiled for either 32-bit or 64-bit processing. See the Implementing 64-bit Processing learning path on LearnJDE for details on implementing 64-bit.

  • 64-bit processing is available only for Application Release 9.2.

  • 64-bit Tool Releases are available for the following JD Edwards certified platforms (see the Certifications tab on My Oracle Support for current certifications):

Multi-Foundation Considerations

As a best practice, you should always set up multiple EnterpriseOne Tools Release foundations, including a test environment for applying EnterpriseOne Tools Release fixes. This helps ensure that a stable environment exists before you promote fixes to your production environment. You can also use this same principle and procedure to set up multiple foundations of major EnterpriseOne Tools Releases, such as EnterpriseOne Tools Release 9.1.x and EnterpriseOne Tools Release 9.2.x.

See "Working with Multiple Tools Release Foundations" in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Deployment Server Reference Guide for Enterprise Systems for Microsoft Windows.

Note: If you have more than one EnterpriseOne Enterprise Server sharing the same F98OWSEC table, you have to update all of them to EnterpriseOne Tools 9.1 Update 3 to support one-way hash encryption. In order to properly connect and use tew foundations with different encryptions, a security split has to be done in the system.See Special Instructions for Multiple Enterprise Servers Sharing the Same F98OWSEC Table in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Security Administration Guide.

Required Components

There are required components necessary for a successful installation and configuration of the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Release 9.2.x with the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Applications 9.0, 9.1 and 9.2 Releases. You can view the required components on My Oracle Support - Required Components for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Release 9.2 (Doc ID 2054020.1).
