XML Gateway Overview

XML Gateway

HI, today i will talk briefly about Oracle XML Gateway as component of Oracle Applications. This is only indented to be a conceptual introduction and for the complete details you must refer to the user guide or appropriate metalink note. XML Gateway is a tool that facilitates the communication between the Oracle E business suite and third party applications or trading partners in the form of well formatted XML messages. XML Gateway ensures that both business to business (B2B) and Application to Application(A2A)

requirements are met. Further XML Gateway ensures that the messages that are generated or consumed are compliant with the standards set by the OpenApplications Group. You can find more information on these standards at http://www.openapplications.org Oracle XML Gateway works with Oracle Workflow to consume events raised and generate XML messages. These messages are further propagated using Oracle Advanced queuing technology and Oracle Transport agent(OTA). Inbound and outbound messages are managed in queue table using Oracle Advanced Queuing. The OTA is used to deliver messages to a trading partner over HTTP or HTTPs. An OTA servlet running with Oracle Applications is also responsible for receiving inbound documents sent by the trading partner.Oracle XML gateway can be considered as a form of EDI, whereas in a normal EDI transaction the operation happens in a batch in case of XML gateway the message are more real time as they are based of events.

Oracle XML gateway makes use of the uses Web Services Description Language (WSDL) to facilitate trading partners to communicate with Oracle Applications. Trading partners can use third party web service tools to call the web services publish by your Oracle Applications.It also uses the Java Messaging Service(JMS) to send messages between Oracle Applications and trading partners.

At the core of Oracle XML Gateway lies the execution engine, this is responsible for interacting with other oracle technologies like Oracle Workflow etc to consume and generate messages between trading partners as in the case of a B2B communication.

Oracle XML Gateway supports the SMTP, HTTP, HTTPS, JMS transport protocols for message delivery and consumption.

Oracle XML Gateway uses the Message Designer to define message maps, message maps are required to specify the data source and data target for the document. You can also use Map creation wizards that are provided for this purpose.

The message designer and wizard is a client software which is required to be installed separately on the client PCs.

Message map files have a .xgm extension. Message maps that are created on the loacle /client system have to be loaded to the middle tier APPL_TOP.

The java LoadMap and java DeleteMap are used to load and delet message maps on the middle tier server. Its important to note that before you crate your message maps for your document you must ensure that the


document conforms to the Document Type Definition(DTD).Pre defined DTD are installed and loaded in the $APPLTOP of the middle Tier. You can however load custom DTD that you can define using the Oracle Message Designer to the middle tier as well as modify existing DTD and delete existing DTD.

The DTD files are created with the .dtd extension.

The java DeleteDTDFromClob and java LoadDTDToClob are used for deleting and loading DTDs

respectively.For complete syntax and example to load and delet DTDs refer to the Oracle XML Gateway users guide.

You can use the Oracle Applications responsibility 'XML Gateway Responsibility' to define trading partners and transactions.

In releases 11.5.7 onwards XML gateway is distributed as a part of AOL and does not require to be licensed or installed separately. For prior releases XML Gateway can be installed by applying patch 2440710.

The metalink note 152775.1 contains full instructions for installing and configuring Oracle XML Gateway. You can verify your XML gateway installation byu executing the following sql script

SQL> $ECX_TOP/patch/115/sql/ECXTEST.sql

this will create a OUTnnn.xml if the installation and configuration of XML Gateway is successful.

Overview of OA Frame work.

Oracle Applications Framework (OA Framework) is the Oracle Applications development and deployment platform for HTML-based business applications.OA Framework consists of a set of middle-tier runtime services and a design-time extension to Oracle9i JDeveloper called Oracle Applications Extension. Oracle9i JDeveloper with OA Extension (OA Extension) is a world class J2EE-based integrated development


OA Framework is designed around the simple Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture The MVC architecture is a component-based design pattern.OA Framework technologies has driven several industry standards and has adopted several others.OA Framework is J2EE based and features several industry standards such as XML, HTML, Java, JSP, SQL and Web Services.OA Extension provides features such as easy-to-use wizards, a hierarchy navigator, and a property sheet. These features enable developers to populate the

metadata for declarative application business logic and user interfaces.

what JDeveloper version should be used for OAF development Current JDeveloper patches:



Patch 4573517 - Oracle9i JDeveloper with OA Extension for 11.5.10 CU2


To determine which patch to use, you can simply check the framework version in your instance by using


then choose the matched one.

11.5.10K = patch 4045639

11.5.101CU = patch 4141787


11.5.103CU = patch 4725670


OA Framework Architecuture is based on the industry-standard J2EE MVC design pattern.So Developers manipulate the application's metadata using Oracle 9i JDeveloper OA Extension .

How to Remove personalization

1. Login to application

2. Select Responsibility Functional Administrator 3. Click Personalization Tab ( Upper Right)


5. Click on the Personalized Checkbox 6. Click Go

7. Remove or De-activate your personalization that is causing the issue by selecting the personalization level at which you made that particular persanolization . Because if you made some personalizations at

responsibility level and some at site level and if you made mistake whenever you are making personalization at site then you need to select the personalization level at site level rather than responsibility , so that you eventhough you deactivate personalizations at site level by usingthis action plan , you can protect your personalizations which were made at responsibility level .8 Re-test your login.


by setting the profile option "Disable Self-Service Personal" to "Yes Method -3

Use the JDR_UTILS package

Use sqlplus and this comand examples set serveroutput on;

execute jdr_utils.listDocuments('//', TRUE); Example: To DELETE ---Begin executejdr_utils.deleteDocument('/oracle/apps/icx/por/reqmgmt/server/customizations/site/0/GroupReqsPublic VO'); commit; End;

then refer the follwoing tbales JDR_COMPONENTS. JDR_ATTRIBUTES


what is EO ( Entity Object ) ,View Object (ViewImpl) and View Row ( ViewRowImpl )?

Entity Object :BC4J entity objects encapsulate the business rules like validations, actions associated with a row in a database table, view or synonym .

View Object (ViewImpl):In the simplest terms, a BC4J view object encapsulates a database query and provides iteration over and access to the view rows in its result set

View Row ( ViewRowImpl ) :Represents a single row in a view object.

Customization of Information Template in iProc

information templates to gather additional information in Oracle iProcurement to pass necessary order processing information to suppliers.When an information template is assigned to a category or item, the application prompts requesters to provide the information specified in the template when the item is added to the shopping cart.Each information template must be associated with an Oracle Purchasing item or item category.If an information template is associated with an item category, all items belonging to that category are also associated with the template.

Create an information template:

1.From the Oracle Purchasing menu, select Setup > Information Templates. Give your Template a name.

2.Select Available in All Organizations if you want the template to be available to requesters in all operating units. 3.Select an Attachment Category of To Supplier or To Buyer.

Note :Before Runing XML Publisher Report Assign XML Publisher prog into OM responsibily. Commonly Used XML Tags in Template

1) Holds the opening for-each loop for the item element. 2) Closing tag of the for-each loop.

3) The opening of the if statement to test for the attribute value "PRIVATE". 4) Ends the if statement.

5) sort a group by any element within the group. 6) Sort Multiple Group of elements

7) To establish nested groupings within the already defined group

8)mailto:?for-each-group@cell:currentgroup(); Uses the regrouping syntax to group the data by YEAR 9)

10) date format mask:

Variable Declaration

Use this element to declare a local or global variable. XSL Syntax:

XML Publisher Tag: Example:


Assigns the value "red" to the "color" variable. The variable can then be referenced in the template.

Cell Highlighting

1000?> -->

• The above tag embeds native XSL code

• The "attribute" element allows you to modify properties in the XSL.

• The xdo:ctx component is an XML Publisher feature that allows you to adjust XSL attributes at any level in the template

• To change the color attribute, you can use either the standard HTML names (for example, red, white, green) or you can use the hexadecimal color definition (for example, #FFFFF).

XML Publisher supports two methods for creating RTF templates:

1)Basic RTF Method 2)Form Field Method

Creating an RTF template file consists of two basic steps: Design your template layout.

Use the formatting features of your word processing application and save the file as RTF. Mark up your template layout.

Insert the XML Publisher simplified tags.

The Template Builder is an extension to Microsoft Word that simplifies the development of RTF

templates.XML Publisher converts the formatting that you apply in your word processing application to XSL-FO.

Enter placeholders in your document using the following syntax:

There are two ways to insert placeholders in your template:

Basic RTF Method: Insert the placeholder syntax directly into your template document.

Form Field Method: (Requires Microsoft Word) Insert the placeholder syntax in Microsoft Word’s Text Form Field Options window.


Use Microsoft Word’s Text Form Field Options window to insert the placeholder tags: 1. Enable the Forms toolbar in your Microsoft Word application.

2. Position your cursor in the place you want to create a placeholder.

3. Select the Text Form Field toolbar icon. This action inserts a form field area in your document.

4. Double-click the form field area to invoke the Text Form Field Options dialog box. 5. (Optional) Enter a description of the field in the Default text field. The entry in this field will populate the placeholder’s position on the template.

For the example, enter "Supplier 1". 6. Select the Add Help Text button.

7. In the help text entry field, enter the XML element’s tag name using the syntax:

What is Oracle XML Publisher?

Oracle XML Publisher is a template-based publishing.It provides a new approach to report design.The flexibility of XML Publisher is a result of the separation of the presentation of the report from its data structure. XML Publisher provides the Template Manager to register and maintain report templates and their data sources. The Template Manager is the repository for your templates and data sources. Creating customized reports using XML Publisher can be divided into two

How to Restart or Bounce Apache in Oracle Apps 11i

Please find the two commands that I use for bouncing the Apache

1)$COMMON_TOP/admin/scripts/$TWO_TASK*/adapcctl.sh stop2)$COMMON_TOP/admin/scripts/$TWO_TASK*/adapcctl.sh start


In case you have modified any java or class file in OAF ,XML Document and AK Developer then Apache bounce becomes mandatory.

How to find Report Belongs to particular Request Group use the following query.

SELECT frg.request_group_name ,frt.description ,frg.request_group_code ,frg.description FROM fnd_request_groups frg, fnd_concurrent_programs_tl frt WHERE frg.application_id=frt.application_id

AND frt.user_concurrent_program_name='Process Pending Payments' this will give Request Group name and description.

Overview of Concurrent Manager

A concurrent manager is itself a concurrent program that starts other concurrent programs. This document explains how to start up, define, and configure concurrent managers.. Concurrent Managers are defined and assigned one or more work shifts .You can issue commands to start, verify, shut down, or reset concurrent managers individually or use the ICM to control every manager at once .It is recommended that you restart an individual concurrent manager every time

Starting the ICM:

Follow the steps outlined below to start the ICM during installation of Oracle Applications, after shutdown of concurrent managers, or after restarting your operating system or database.

· Log in to the UNIX server as applmgr

· Select the appropriate database environment · Use the following command: Startmgr

By default, the ICM periodically monitors each concurrent manager’s processes. You can force this monitoring activity, also known as PMON by selecting the ICM and choosing the Verify button. Below is a summary listing of the concurrent managers and their functions

1.Internal Concurrent Manager (ICM)

Starts up, verifies the status of, resets, and shuts down theIndividual managers. Settings for the ICM cannot be altered.

2.Standard Manager

Runs 365 days a year, 24 hours a day and accepts any and all requests. It has no specialization and should NOT be altered

Note: If the Standard manager is altered in any way, some programs may not run. We recommend that you define additional managers to handle client-specific needs.

3.Conflict Resolution Manager

The Conflict Resolution Manager resolves conflicts, such as request incompatibilities. The Conflict Resolution Manager checks concurrent program definitions for incompatibility rules. If a program is identified as Run Alone, then the Conflict Resolution Manager prevents the concurrent managers from starting other programs in the same conflict domain. When a program lists other programs as being incompatible with it, the Conflict Resolution Manager prevents the program from starting until any incompatible programs in the same domain have completed running.


Scheduler/Prereleaser manager.

5.Transaction Manager for diagnostics only Transaction Manager for diagnostics only.


Oracle iProcurement, securing attributes called realms are used to restrict requester access to the catalog.


Realms are securing attributes used to control access to the catalog as an additional layer for application security

ICX_POR_REALM_ID -->Use this attribute to secure the responsibility for category or item source realms.

Once you create a realm, you assign it to a responsibility or user. The requester associated with that responsibility or user can see whatever categories or item source catalogs are contained in that realm. STEPS:

1. Create the realm.

2. Assign the realm to a responsibility.

3. Optionally assign realms to individual users if desired. Create the Realm:

1.Log in to Oracle Purchasing And Navigate Setup > E-Catalog Admin > Realms. 2.in window enter your own Name and Description for the realm.

component Type : Category

components: select any existing Category.

3. Save your work Realm Id Generated automatically. Assign the Realm to a Responsibility:

1.Log on to Sysadmin

2.Open the Responsiblities window

3.Query the responsibility to which you will assign the realm.(Ex: iProcurement)

4.n the Name field, use the LOV to select ICX_POR_REALM_ID. 5. Click on Values Button In the Values Button Select the Relam ID 6. And Save your Changes.


Assign the Realm to Users (Optional): 1.Log on to Sysadmin.

2.Navigation path: Security > User >Define.

3.Query the user (person) to whom you want to assign the realm.

4.In the Securing Attributes tabbed region,in the Attribute field, use the LOV to select ICX_POR_REALM_ID.

5.In the Securing Attributes tabbed region, create a line for each realm you want to assign to the user. Select ICX_POR_REALM_ID in the Name field and the Realm ID for each realm.

6. Save your work. RESULT.

Categories restricted by realms display to requesters when browsing categories;however, the items in those categories do not display.

Concept of Oracle Workflow

A workflow consists of numerous processes reprents business process flows and information.Each workflow process contains a set of activities,notifications,PL/SQL stored procedures or another sub process

Workflow Components

it contains 6 major components. 1.workflow Builder

provides a graphical user interface for creating and maintaing definations. 2.workflow Engine

is the component that executes and enforces the defined workflow process 3.workflow Monitor

Component of oracle workflow that allows you to review the state or status 4.workflow Definitions Loader

is the component that allows you to download or load workflow definitions to and from the date base or test files.

5.Notification System.

the notification mailer is a program that concurrently sends emails and receive responses. 6. workflow Directory Services

work flow Dir services is the component that identifies the directory repository.


function variables.

Itemtype -->A category of items that share the same set of attributes.

itemkey--> A unique key identifier within the same item type for specific item passing actid ---> the unique identifier of the activity that calls this stored procedure.

Result--> the result of the stored procedure can be Complete:Result_code

DEFERRED:date ERROR:Error_code Notified:notification_Id Waiting

The format of stored procedure declaration will be PROCEDURE your_procedure(

itemtype in varchar2, itemkey in varchar2, actid in number, funcmode in varchar2, result out varchar2) Is

in funcmode variable to execute codes that correspond to the RUN,CANCEL and TIMEOUT modes. APIs

inside the stored procedure you must use workflow Engine APIs to communicate with workflow engine. All workflow Engine APIs present inside the WF_ENGINE package.

API'S inside the WF_ENGINE

SetItemAttrText set the value of a text item attribute.

SetItemAttrNumber set the value of a number Item attribute. SetItemAttrDate set the value if a date item attribute

GetItemAttrInfo Get type information about an item attribute CreateProcess create a new rntime process for an item StartProcess Begins execution of the process.

Oracle Forms Personalization

Oracle has introduced a mechanism which revolutionizes the way the forms can be customized to fulfill the customer needs.Oracle Applications has provided a custom library using which the look and behavior of the standard forms can be altered, but the custom library modifications require extensive work on SQL and PL/SQL.Oracle Applications release 11.5.10 has provided a user interface “Personalization form” which will be used to define the personalization rules.

By default the “Personalize” menu is visible to all the users; this can be controlled with help of profile options.By setting up the below profile options,access to the Personalize menu can be limited for the authorized users.

Utilities: Diagnostics = Yes/No Hide Diagnostics = Yes/No


invoking the Personalization form click on “Help -> Diagnostics -> Custom Code -> Personalize”

The form mainly contains four sections.

• Rules • Conditions • Context • Actions


Each rule contains a sequence number and the description. The rule can be activated or de-activated using the “Enabled” checkbox.


Conditions decide the event the rule to be executed. Each condition mainly contains three sections i.e. Trigger Event, Trigger Object and Condition..


Context manages to whom the personalization should apply. This is similar to the concept of using profile options in Oracle Application


Actions decide the exact operation to be performed when the conditions and context return true during the runtime.


3.Enter the sequence number as 10 and description as “Change the Order Type Prompt to Claim Type”

4.Select the Trigger Event as “WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE” 5.Select or enter the following values under Context section • Level = Responsibility

• Value = Order Management Super User

On Actions tab, enter or select the following values • Sequence = 10

• Type = Property

• Description = Order Type to Claim Type • Language = All


Click on “Apply Now” button

Close both the forms and reopen the Sales Order form

The Order Number label should reflect as Claim Number

How to Use Hint

Select /*+ HINT */ Ename from emp where empid=7856

Where HINT is replaced by the hint text.When the syntax of the hint text is incorrect, the hint text is ignored and will not be used


The ALL_ROWS hint explicitly chooses the cost-based approach to optimize a statement block with a goal of best throughput (that is, minimum total resource consumption).



of best response time (minimum resource usage to return first row). In newer Oracle version you should give a parameter with this hint: FIRST_ROWS(n) means that the optimizer will determine an executionplan to give a fast response for returning the first n rows.


The CHOOSE hint causes the optimizer to choose between the rule-based approach and the cost-based approach for a SQL statement based on the presence of statistics for the tables accessed by the statement RULE

The RULE hint explicitly chooses rule-based optimization for a statement block. This hint also causes the optimizer to ignore any other hints specified for the statement block. The RULE hint does not work any more in Oracle 10g.

Hints for Access Paths


The FULL hint explicitly chooses a full table scan for the specified table. The syntax of the FULL hint is FULL(table) where table specifies the alias of the table (or table name if alias does not exist) on which the full table scan is to be performed.


The ROWID hint explicitly chooses a table scan by ROWID for the specified table. The syntax of the ROWID hint is ROWID(table) where table specifies the name or alias of the table on which the table access by

ROWID is to be performed. (This hint depricated in Oracle 10g) CLUSTER

The CLUSTER hint explicitly chooses a cluster scan to access the specified table. The syntax of the CLUSTER hint is CLUSTER(table) where table specifies the name or alias of the table to be accessed by a cluster scan.


The HASH hint explicitly chooses a hash scan to access the specified table. The syntax of the HASH hint is HASH(table) where table specifies the name or alias of the table to be accessed by a hash scan.


The HASH_AJ hint transforms a NOT IN subquery into a hash anti-join to access the specified table. The syntax of the HASH_AJ hint is HASH_AJ(table) where table specifies the name or alias of the table to be accessed.(depricated in Oracle 10g)


The INDEX hint explicitly chooses an index scan for the specified table. The syntax of the INDEX hint is INDEX(table index) where:table specifies the name or alias of the table associated with the index to be scanned and index specifies an index on which an index scan is to be performed. This hint may optionally specify one or more indexes:


The NO_INDEX hint explicitly disallows a set of indexes for the specified table. The syntax of the NO_INDEX hint is NO_INDEX(table index)


The INDEX_ASC hint explicitly chooses an index scan for the specified table. If the statement uses an index range scan, Oracle scans the index entries in ascending order of their indexed values.


If no indexes are given as arguments for the INDEX_COMBINE hint, the optimizer will use on the table whatever boolean combination of bitmap indexes has the best cost estimate. If certain indexes are given as arguments, the optimizer will try to use some boolean combination of those particular bitmap indexes. The syntax of INDEX_COMBINE is INDEX_COMBINE(table index).



Explicitly instructs the optimizer to use an index join as an access path. For the hint to have a positive effect, a sufficiently small number of indexes must exist that contain all the columns required to resolve the query. INDEX_DESC

The INDEX_DESC hint explicitly chooses an index scan for the specified table. If the statement uses an index range scan, Oracle scans the index entries in descending order of their indexed values.


This hint causes a fast full index scan to be performed rather than a full table. NO_INDEX_FFS

Do not use fast full index scan (from Oracle 10g) INDEX_SS

Exclude range scan from query plan (from Oracle 10g) INDEX_SS_ASC

Exclude range scan from query plan (from Oracle 10g) INDEX_SS_DESC

Exclude range scan from query plan (from Oracle 10g) NO_INDEX_SS

The NO_INDEX_SS hint causes the optimizer to exclude a skip scan of the specified indexes on the specified table. (from Oracle 10g)

$OA_JAVA/oracle/apps/xdo/common/MetaInfo.class. Forward Declaration

PL/SQL allows for a special subprogram declaration called a forward declaration. It consists of the subprogram

specification in the package body terminated by a semicolon. You can use forward declarations to do the


• Define subprograms in logical or alphabetical order.

• Define mutually recursive subprograms.(both calling each other). • Group subprograms in a package

Example of forward Declaration:


PROCEDURE calc_rating(. . .); -- forward declaration PROCEDURE award_bonus(. . .)

IS -- subprograms defined BEGIN -- in alphabetical order calc_rating(. . .); . . . END; PROCEDURE calc_rating(. . .) IS BEGIN . . . END; END forward_pack;




-- are used to replace a single value in sql, pl/sql

-- bind variable may be used to replace expressions in select, where, group, order by, having, connect by, start with cause of queries.

-- bind reference may not be referenced in FROM clause (or) in place of reserved words or clauses.


-- you can use lexical reference to replace the clauses appearing AFTER select, from, group by, having, connect by, start with.

-- you can’t make lexical reference in a pl/sql statmetns. Flex mode and Confine mode

Confine mode

On: child objects cannot be moved outside their enclosing parent objects. Off: child objects can be moved outside their enclosing parent objects.

Flex mode:

On: parent borders "stretch" when child objects are moved against them. Off: parent borders remain fixed when child objects are moved against them.

Diff Between Implicit and Explicit Cursors

1) Implicit: declared for all DML and pl/sql statements. By default it selects one row only.

2) Explicit:Declared and named by the programmer.Use explicit cursor to individually process each row returned by a Multiple statements, is called ACTIVE SET. Allows the programmer to manually control explicit cursor in the

HRMS Date Track

Date Tracking

Date Tracking is a special feature in HRMS.important dynamic information in IS HRMS is date-tracked, including information about people, assignments, payrolls, compensation, and benefits.

When you log on to IS HRMS, your effective date is always today’s date.

To view information from another date or to make future-dated changes you must change your effective date.

The two DateTrack command icons on your window toolbar are:

• Alter Effective Date • View DateTrack History

When you update date-tracked information, you are prompted to choose between Update and Correction options. If you select Update, IS HRMS changes the record as of your effective date but preserves the previous information.

If you select Correction, IS HRMS overrides the previous information with your new changes.You cannot create a record and then update it on the same day. If you try to do this, IS HRMS warns you that the old record will be overridden, and then changes Update to Correction. This occurs because DateTrack maintains records for a minimum of a day at a time.

View DateTrack History

To see all the changes made to a datetracked record over time, use DateTrack History. Click on [Full History] if you want to open a DateTrack History folder showing the value of each field between the from and to dates.

What is the interface?

Interface Table is a table which is used as medium for transfer of data between two systems. What is INBOUND and OUT BOUND? (Different types of interfaces)

Inbound Interface:

For inbound interfaces, where these products are the destination, interface tables as well as supporting validation, processing, and maintenance programs are provided.

Outbound Interface:

For outbound interfaces, where these products are the source, database views are provided and the destination application should provide the validation, processing, and maintenance programs What is multi org?


“Legal entity has more than one operating unit is called as multi org” a) Business group --- Human resources information is secured by Business group

b) Legal entity. --- inter-company and fiscal/tax reporting. Security responsibility operating unit.

c) Operating unit --- secures AR, OE, AP, PA and PO Information. d) Organizations --- is a specialize unit of work at particular locations

What are the User PARAMETERS in the Reports? P_CONC_REQUEST_ID


EXITS:-FND SRWINIT sets your profile option values, multiple organizations and allows Oracle Application Object

Library user exits to detect that they have been called by an Oracle Reports program.

FND SRWEXIT ensures that all the memory allocated for AOL user exits have been freed up properly.

FND FLEXIDVAL are used to display flex field information like prompt, value etc

FND FLEXSQL these user exits allow you to use flex fields in your reports

FND FORMAT_CURRENCY is used to print currency in various formats by using formula column

What are the requests groups?

a) Single request: - this allows you to submit an individual request. b) Request set : - this allows you to submit a pre-defined set of requests.

Difference between Bind and Lexical parameters?


are used to replace a single value in sql, pl/sql bind variable may be used to replace expressions in select, where, group, order by, having, connect by, start with cause of queries.

bind reference may not be referenced in FROM clause (or) in place of reserved words or clauses. LEXICAL REFERENCE:

you can use lexical reference to replace the clauses appearing AFTER select,

from, group by, having, connect by, start with. you can’t make lexical reference in a pl/sql statmetns. update clause:

1) use explicit locking to deny access for the duration of a transaction 2) lock the rows before update or delete

Ex : select ……. From…….

For update[ of column ref] [no_wait] where current of clause?

1) use cursor to update or delete the current row Where current of <>

What is the package?

Group logically related pl/sql types, items and subprograms. 1. package specification

2. package body


A. Modularity

B. Easier Application Design C.Information Hiding


You cannot overload:

•Two subprograms if their formal parameters differ only in name or parameter mode. (datatype and their

total number is same).

•Two subprograms if their formal parameters differ only in datatype and the different datatypes are in the

same family (number and decimal belong to the same family)

•Two subprograms if their formal parameters differ only in subtype and the different subtypes are based

on types in the same family (VARCHAR and STRING are subtypes of VARCHAR2) •Two functions that differ only in return type, even if the types are in different families.

What are triggers?

triggers are similar to procedures, in that they are the named pl/sql blocks with declarative,executable and exception-handling sections, how ever a procedure is executed explicitly from another block via a procedure call, which can also pass arguments.

A trigger is executed implicitly when ever a particular event task places. And is nothing but a event. The triggering event is a DML (insert, update, delete) operations on a data base table

fires whenever a data event(such as DML) or system event(such as login or shutdown) occurs on a schema or database

Trigger timing : 1) before

2) after

3) instead of ( this is used for views)

events : 1) insert 2)update 3) delete Trigger type : 1) statement level 2) row level.

Firing sequence of database triggers

1. before statement trigger 2. before row trigger 3. after row trigger 4. after statement trigger


Is to reduce concurrency 1) share lock

it allows the other users for only reading not to insert 2) exclusive lock

only one user can have the privileges of insert or others can only read.


multiple user can read, update delete Lock levels :

1) table level 2) table space 3) data base level. What are ad-hoc reports?

Ans.: Ad-hoc Report is made to meet one-time reporting needs. Concerned with or formed for a particular purpose. For example, ad hoc tax codes or an ad hoc database query

AOL features in OM

Order Management uses the following AOL features

Document Sequences - Order Entry used Order Number Sources for order numbering. It let you define sequences that were used to automatically number Orders and Returns. You assigned an Order Number source to an Order Type.

Order Management uses the AOL Document Sequences feature to meet Order Numbering requirements. This lets you number Order and Returns

using Manual, Automatic or Gapless sequences.You can define Document Sequences using the AOL Define Document Sequences form. When you define an Order Transaction Type, the application automatically creates a Document Sequence Category of the same name. You can assign a pre-defined sequence to one or more Document Sequence Categories, using the AOL Sequence Assignments

form. When an Order is created, Order Management calls AOL Document Sequence APIs to number the Order.

Attachments - In Order Entry you could define Notes and addition rules regarding when they were attached to an Order or Line. You had to manually choose to add the eligible Notes to the Order or Line. You could also define how the Notes were printed on various Reports. Database triggers were used to duplicate Note definition data in AOL.

Order Management drives off the AOL Attachment functionality enabling you to attach images and web pages (in addition to short or long text). It also offers multi-lingual Document capability.

Attachment definition and usage data is stored only in AOL. Automatic Addition rule definitions are stored in Order Management


(Customer, Ship-to, Invoice-to, Order Type, Item, PO #) that were previously available, you can now define rules based on the Order Category,Line Category and Line Type.

Oracle Order Management - Sales Order

The Profile Option ‘OM: Apply Automatic Attachments’ determines whether rule based attachments are automatically applied
