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 Fusion Middleware: Who Stole Mark Drake?
For a not so technical but far more entertaining introduction to Oracle Fusion Middleware, take a look at the suspense thriller ”Who Stole Mark Drake?”.
Posted By: Michael Siebert
The folks at Oracle Studios have been hard at work, setting the stage for a modern game of stolen identity. Starring a cast of international cyber cops and robbers, this 11 minute whodunnit tale takes you on a global journey across several time zones and continents. Now I won’t spoil the ending, but I will tell you it doesn’t end with Larry firing a few RPG’s from his Italian jet fighter into an abandoned warehouse filled with eBay scammers (perhaps Oracle Game Studios can work on that one). It probably won’t win any Academy Awards either - although the soundtrack isn’t too shabby. It will, however, give you a good introduction to the various products and components of Oracle Fusion Middleware and how it all came together to answer the question of “Who Stole Mark Drake?”. After the film is over and you’ve regained your composure, be sure to go through the nine “Debrief Videos” , each of which answers various questions about how the mystery was solved through the use of Oracle technologies such as the Customer Data Hub, BPEL Process Manager and BAM, and Oracle Identity Management to name a few.
If you’re like me, you’ve made a commitment for 2007 to better understand Oracle Fusion. But what is Fusion? Applications? Architecture? Middleware? Actually, it can be all of these. The good news is that there is plenty of information out there to help us sort through the confusion about Fusion. I’ll be focusing on the trials and tribulations of my journey to better understand the various concepts, products, and components of Oracle Fusion in future posts. Until then, grab some popcorn and enjoy the show!
