  • 35. Copyright © 2013, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.35 #7 Understanding the Enablement Process
  • 36. Copyright © 2013, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.36 #7 Understanding the Enablement Process  Performed as part of the R12.2 upgrade process  Schemas in the database are converted to be editions enabled – Turns on object versioning in the database – Once a schema is editions enabled it cannot be reverted  Introduces a new view of the EBS data model – A logical rather than physical representation of the data model is presented – Changes the way many objects are defined and patched  New standards must be followed  Customers should fully review the new standards
  • 37. Copyright © 2013, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.37 Logical view of the data model • All code must access the data model via the APPS synonym • APPS synonym points to the Editioning View (Logical Model) • Any code accessing the physical model risks accessing obsolete columns Apps APPLSYS• E-Business Code • Custom Code • 3rd Party Code WF_ITEMS (Synonym) WF_ITEMS# (Editioning view) WF_ITEMS (Table) #7 Understanding the Enablement Process
  • 38. Copyright © 2013, Oracle and/or its affiliates.

  • 43. Copyright © 2013, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.43 #8 Review Online Patching Standards  Summary Readiness Report (ADZDPSUM.sql) – Reports schemas that will be automatically editioned  All schemas owned by EBS are automatically registered for editioning – Reports custom schemas with objects that will become invalid if schema is not registered for editioining  Recommended to register all schemas listed  Manual Readiness Report ( ADZDPMAN.sql) – Reports custom objects that must be manually fixed before Online Patching is enabled – Any exception not fixed will cause object invalidation post enablement a) Readiness Reports
  • 44. Copyright © 2013, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.44 #8 Review Online Patching Standards a) Readiness Reports 1.

  • 52. Copyright © 2013, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.52 Online Patching – Resource Considerations  Database – SYSTEM tablespace requires double its current space allocation  25GB increase to 50GB – SEED tablespace requires double its current space allocation  5GB increases to 10GB  File System – 2 file systems require double the space of 1 file system  Dual File System + Non-Editioned File System
  • 53. Copyright © 2013, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.53 #10 Consider New Operational Characteristics
  • 54. Copyright © 2013, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.54 #10 Consider New Operational Characteristics  Downtime windows are now measured in minutes – What operations other than applying patches do you perform? – Can these operations be performed while the E-Business Suite is online? – Example: Taking backups (pre-patching, during-patching or post-patching)  Testing – Patch Edition is not a testing environment – Patches still need to be tested on a test system – Consider new test scenarios  Users can be online during patch application
  • 55. Copyright © 2013, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.55 #10 Consider New Operational Characteristics  Train the development team – Review the new coding standards, for example:  Cross Edition Triggers replace data upgrade scripts  Table names must be unique at 29th character – Review the new deployment standards, for example:  Custom files must be applied to the Patch file system  Custom files must be registered with the custom driver Handling Customizations
