Tools 9.1 SOD JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools 9.

1 Introduction
Release Highlights
Introduction [2201 : 12-Apr-2011] Thousands of organizations around the world rely on JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications for their daily business operations. Supporting every JD Edwards EnterpriseOne installation is a JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools release which delivers an efficient independent secure and reliable platform for the application modules and the supporting technologies (including databases hardware browsers and operating systems) from Oracle and other technology companies. Since all JD Edwards EnterpriseOne users interact with tools through every transaction every JD Edwards EnterpriseOne customer will derive multiple business benefits from improvements to the Tools releases. These Tools releases are also a key part of providing customers with a lower overall Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Oracle delivers new releases of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools through three release vehicles 1. Major releases such as Tools 9.1. Major releases are typically delivered every 1 to 2 years. 2. Tools release updates such as Tools 9.1 Update 1 (9.1.1). Tools release updates are typically delivered every 6 to 12 months. 3. Maintenance packs such as Tools 9.1 Update 1 maintenance pack 1 (9.1.1.1). Tools Maintenance packs are typically delivered every 1 to 2 months. These tools releases are designed to be backward compatible meaning a customer can apply a new tools release without a corresponding application upgrade. This allows customers to add value to their enterprise applications without major changes to their business processes. While it is not always possible to provide backwards compatibility for every new tools feature or to every prior applications release backward compatibility is a design goal of tools releases. Please refer to the product release notes for details on a feature level compatibility by application release. Three themes support this release - Theme 1: Dramatically Improve End User Productivity - Theme 2: Continue to Reduce the Total Cost of Ownership - Theme 3: Leverage the Underlying Technology Infrastructure Status: Planned Type: Feature Industry:

Benefits: - Enhance the resiliency of your transaction server by eliminating single points of failure - Increase throughput capacity Examples: Your JD Edwards EnterpriseOne System publishes events through the transaction server. You need to publish a new set of events based on increasing business needs. To accommodate the additional load you add servers to your transaction server cluster. Upgrade Table Conversion Performance Improvement (*Alter) [9014 : 14-Jun-2011] The Table Conversion process has been optimized where possible to provide a more efficient method of altering table definitions during an upgrade process. In the case that the table changes are simply to add additional columns to an existing table, a SQL Alter Table command is used which results in a much more efficient and quick conversion. Status: Planned Type: Feature Industry: Benefits: Downtime required for perform data conversion significantly reduced for the upgrade process which minimizes impact of downtime to business. Examples: Customer data conversion on the F0911 that took 44 hours to complete using the standard process was able to complete in 38 minutes using this modified approach. Notes: Project name = *Alter

Reduces the need for a user to access row and form exits to view data related to a transaction or field. 3. Feature can be enabled through configuration as opposed to coding. These configurations are preserved during an upgrade. Examples: Example #1 - User mouses over a customer field and is shown additional information such as their mailing address e-mail address web site. Example #2 - User can mouse over an item number to see item details such as item description picture and availability. Inline Visual Assist [2237 : 12-Apr-2011] This feature provides a seamless interface between a JD Edwards EnterpriseOne application and the search form that is invoked from a visual assist. Historically when a user selected a visual assist the search form was rendered as full application. Now visual assist will display the search form as a hover that is displayed inline with application. Status: Planned Type: Feature Industry: Benefits: 1. Provides a seamless experience for users when they need to search for field specific data values. 2. The search form is displayed as a hover in the applications therefore allowing the user to view other application data while searching for a field specific data value.
