Difference between Fusion Middleware and Fusion Application - Part 01

Lets start with Fusion Applications...

Fusion Applications are scheduled to be released in 2009 and will be ERP software package. This new application set is designed to be Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA)-compliant (this means.... SOA Definition: A business-centric architectural appoach that supports integrating business processes. The concept of SOA is to have a world of services that can be subscribed to and used through different applications. With SOA you can grab all data as you need. You can also configure the system to show this data through a single portal-type interface for users.) and uses the middleware solution.

Oracle is reviewing all of functionality from his current product lines. They plan to take the best of functionality and place it into Fusion Applications.
With this in mind, many people ask what they can do today to prepare for the new Fusion Applications.

To prepare, you can start to work with the Fusion Middleware product. The Fusion Applications will be sitting…

SOA Done Right Is Alive and Kicking

When an analyst at the Burton Group titled her blog post "SOA Is Dead; Long Live Services," it touched a nerve in the industry. Some agreed that the acronym SOA (for service-oriented architecture) had come to mean too many things to too many people and was no longer useful.
Oracle's own Dave Chappell had some fun with the controversy and then provided a thoughtful summary. His experience leads him to doubt the original post's negative outlook:
"... based on my travel schedule over the past several months, which has been about 90% of my time going to meet with customers who are actively engaged in funded SOA projects, I would say the architecture-until-recently-known as SOA is still-alive-and-well."
But the fact remains that implementing a SOA solution isn't easy. It requires architects and developers to think in new ways, and to find the right tools and governance solutions to succeed.

Oracle Open World 2008 - Utilities for Batch Processing - EnterpriseOne Tools 8.98

In my oppinion, these new tools for analysing and troubleshooting batch jobs are the most important enhancement we got, talking in day-by-day situations. For us, developers and JDE technicians, to have a tool that can provide dynamic logging or statistics in execution time on server is a big advance.

Three are the main enhancements for Batch processing as follow:
Audit Data - Detail how a batch job was submitted and statistics when finished
Dynamic Logging - Turn detailed log on/off while a batch job is processing on server
Introspection - Display statistics regarding the state  of a batch job while it's running


Below a sample screen shots with these features. You may click the picture to zooming in.
Here we have the "Execution Detail" row exit from Work Submitted Jobs to launch the new Audit Detail application for JDE jobs at "P", "D" or "E" status. It's real! I told "P" status!! Let's check:

Once in Execution Detail application,…
