New Features for JD Edwards

 

 

Oracle to announced the release of the availability of a new JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools release (release 9.2.1.4). This is seen by many in the JD Edwards community as being a hugely positive move by Oracle. The release is a display by Oracle of commitment to the JD Edwards application and its continuous enhancement. 

Tools Release 9.2.1.4 delivers enhancements aimed at optimizing the end-user experience across all industry verticals. Included in this release are enhancements to EnterpriseOne Search, new Orchestration capabilities, additional flexibility for Media Object storage, and platform certifications.

 

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Search

EnterpriseOne Search was released to provide end users with a way to quickly find information from a single location and to enable developers to easily create searches that meet end-user’s specific needs. In this release, EnterpriseOne Search includes Menu Tasks. This is a way for users to easily find applications they need to launch, but are not readily accessible through their springboard. In addition, EnterpriseOne Search can now be used on a tablet through the JD Edwards iPad container or through browsers for both Android and iOS.

 

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Orchestrator

The JDE E1 Orchestrator now enables designers to use the Groovy scripting language for orchestration rules, as a custom service request in an orchestration step, and to manipulate the output of an orchestration. Orchestrator has also been upgraded to enable outbound REST calls to external systems as an orchestration step. While the Orchestrator keeps the simplicity required for business analysts to create orchestrations, the inclusion of Groovy scripting and REST calls to external systems gives programmers many more possibilities for complex orchestrations. 

The licensing for Orchestrator (formerly called Internet of Things (IoT) Orchestrator) has also changed. Rather than being licensed as a discrete product, the usage of Orchestrator is now included as part of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Core Tools and Infrastructure.

 

Media Objects

Media Objects can now be stored int he database or file system. This feature was initially introduced in Tools 9.2.1.0 as a means of simplifying administrative activities. This features give users the choice of where to store Media Objects without impacting existing integrations with media objects.

 

Platform Certifications

EnterpriseOne deployments depend on numerous interdependent platform components from Oracle and third-party vendors. The product support lifecycle of these components is driven by their vendors, creating a continuous need to certify the latest versions in order for customers to have a complete, functional, well-performing, and supported ERP. Tools 9.2.1.4 includes a number of such platform certifications, all of which can be viewed in the official press release document.

 

UX One

In this release, usability of UX One Analytic Components has been enhanced so that end users no longer have to wait for charts to refresh each time they are displayed. They can also view the last time the data was refreshed and manually request a refresh.
