Firefox Version 52 Blocks JRE and, thus, EBS Forms

Firefox's recent stable release channel version 52.0 update ends NPAPI plugin support for Java, Microsoft Silverlight and Adobe Acrobat (Adobe Flash is not affected, however, no support end date for this plugin has been communicated). The impact for Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) customers using Firefox is that even though they have the latest version of Java installed on their system, Firefox will not recognize and load the associated Java plugin. 

A morsel of good news for Firefox-EBS users is that a temporary workaround does exist for those who still want to utilize the Firefox browser.

By: Ketan Thanki, Dynegy

Since mid-2014, Oracle has continued to release various smartphone applications that work with Oracle E-Business Suite. To date they have released 22 such applications. They are compatible and backported to work with EBS version 12.1.3. Most of the applications that Oracle has released are surrounding HCM, Financials, Supply Chain and Manufacturing modules. These applications come pre-licensed with the module of the application.

Some of the benefits of rolling out smartphone applications with EBS include: 

  • Making the applications and data available on a smartphone 
  • Additional User Interface option 
  • Making modules accessible to users in remote locations 
  • Shortening implementation cycles 
  • Accelerating the decision-making process by giving them access to data and taking action on exception type of transactions 
  • Low cost licensing and implementation
