Oracle E-Business Suite R12 Vision Instance

If you haven’t yet been able to play on Release 12 of Oracle EBS, now is your chance. Solution Beacon now has a Release 12 instance (12.0.0 Vision Installation from Media Pack/10.2.0) of the Oracle Vision Test System publicly available.

Release 12 no longer uses JInitiator for forms access so take note of the following note posted on the Solution Beacon site relating to browser settings:

The Release 12 Vision environment uses the same underlying java framework as normal Oracle Applications Release 12. In Release 12 the Oracle JInitiator plug-in required by Release 11i is no longer used. Instead, the default JVM installed by Java 5.0 is used. If you do not already have Java 5.0 installed, it will be installed automatically when accessing Forms mode the first time. In order to allow the Java 5.0 plugin to be installed automatically, click Tools->Internet Options->Security->Trusted Sites. Then, click on the “Sites…” button. Enter *.solutionbeacon.net in the “Add this Web site the the zone” field and click Add. Make sure that “Require server verification (https: ) for all sites in this zone” is unchecked.

We have had many users send us email requesting help with getting the Oracle Forms mode interface to work. In most cases we have found the problem is due to popup blocking software. Before sending us an email requesting help, check to be sure that you do not have popup blocking software enabled. The Oracle Forms mode interface needs to open several additional browser windows and if it is blocked, Oracle Forms will fail to load.

Oracle EBS Release 11.5.10.2 Vision Instance

I noticed that Solution Beacon now has a Vision Instance of the latest release before R12, namely 11.5.10.2

You can now access any of these three Vision Instances:

Release 11.5.10.2 (a510vis5)
(11.5.10.2 Installation from Media Pack/9.2.0.7. ATG RUP#3 applied. Family Pack applied current except for HR and BIS)
Output listing from patchsets.sh for 11.5.10.2 from 10/15/2006

Release 11.5.10 (a510vis1)
(11.5.10.0 Installation from Media Pack/9.2.0.5. No ATG RUPs applied. No additional Consolidated Updates or Family Pack patches applied)
Output listing from patchsets.sh for 11.5.10.0 from 3/27/06

Release 11.5.9 (a159vis2)
(11.5.9.0 Installation from Media Pack/9.2.0.3. No ATG RUPs applied. No additional Consolidated Updates or Family Pack patches applied)
Output listing from patchsets.sh for 11.5.9 from 3/27/06

Although these environments are all publicly accessible I noticed that when registering for the 11.5.10.2 instance I had to supply them with a CSI (Customer Support Identifier). According to the registration form:-

*NEW - 12/21/2006 - In order for Solution Beacon to be able to continue to provide Vision environments for public use, Oracle now requires us to ask for a Customer Support Identifier (CSI) number which can be obtained through Oracle Support.

Hopefully they’ll have an R12 Vision Instance ready to look at shortly!!
