A day in the life of an Oracle Applications Consultant

HTML DB and Apps

I heard a lot of good about HTML DB. I know the Ask Tom forum was built with HTML DB. I read articles on the responsive technet forum.

I was wondering if anyone has used already HTML DB together with Apps. How was it installed? How far have you integrated Apps with HTML DB? I wonder if Oracle has plans to put HTML DB in the technology stack of eBusiness 12? A lot of questions, I know, but we have taken the decision to give it a try.

Installation was not that hard and we are now evaluating some apache configuration issues. The first integration tests with HRMS security are giving us a few headaches, but we will see how we can overcome the actual issues.

If anyone wants to share some experiences and insight, please drop a line.

  1. Our group takes on two new technology initiatives each quarter.  We’re about to pick two new initiatives for the last quarter of 2005 and an integration of HTML DB with 11i is on the list of potential choices. Sounds like you’re a bit ahead of us…please be sure to share your experiences!

  2. I am interested in evaluating HTML DB as well. We have Oracle Apps 11i. We also have a web site (written in ColdFusion) and used by our customers to enter orders, query order status, enter forecast and lots of other stuff. The back end of the web site is hooked to the Oracle Apps interface tables. We’re thinking of either use Oracle Apps’ modules (like iSupport, iStore, Collaborative Planning, Advanced Pricing, Telesales, Marketing..) to replace the ColdFusion site or to use HTML DB instead (the idea here is to be on an all Oracle platform). I have requested an account on and started playing with it. I like it, but I am not sure it can handle large complex web sites. As the previous commenter Thierry said: Sounds like you’re a bit ahead of us…please be sure to share your experiences!

  3. I am also looking for the possibility to link HTMLDB with Oracle Applications 11i . Any comments? Is there any interface from HTMLDB to Oracle GL/AP/Procurement?
