Oracle E-Business Suite Electronic Technical Reference Manuals (eTRM)
This post contains a link to the site where Oracle E-Business Suite Electronic Technical Reference Manuals (eTRM) can be found and also has a write up on the site.
In a previous post I highlighted where the Oracle E-Business Suite Documentation CD could be downloaded. If you’ve taken a look at this documentation CD you will have noticed that the Technical Reference Manuals (TRM’s) are not there. This is because Oracle is now maintaining the technical reference manuals online. Presently you can access the Oracle E-Business Suite at this site: http://etrm.oracle.com. Once accessing this site you will be redirected to Metalink where you will need to specify a user name and password.
According to the site: -
eTRM is a pl/sql utility that reads design information in an Oracle database and displays its output in html format. It shows database design and dependency information for the Oracle eBusiness Suite.
The present version of eTRM is 3.0 and according to Oracle: -
Version 3.0 is a complete re-write of the eTRM code. Prior versions ran against an Oracle Designer repository. Version 3 runs in an Oracle Applications instance. This allows it to provide a more complete and accurate picture of the Applications data model. New features include a search engine, improved navigator functionality, pl/sql dependencies and static reports for offline working.
The site allows you to search the Oracle Databases from 11.5.4 to 11.5.9 to examine the FND Model or Oracle Data Dictionary. The information you obtain can then be downloaded in HTML or PDF format. I’m sure the information on the site will be very useful to anyone who would like to understand the technical architecture of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Systems.
