11 © 2009 Oracle Corporation – Proprietary and Confidential 11 Integrator Description Integrator: Encapsulates all information required to move data to/from a desktop application into Oracle E-Business Suite. May include information about open interface tables, validation, business rules, and data that can be downloaded. Go to responsibility “Desktop Integration Manager” and choose “Manage Integrators” function to create/edit custom Integrators. User can Create, Update and Delete Integrators from Manage Integrators function. Note: Oracle seeded integrators cannot be updated or deleted. User can define Layout and Mappings for Integrator User can Search Integrators by Name, Internal Name, Application, Source and Enabled status

20 © 2009 Oracle Corporation – Proprietary and Confidential 20 Interfaces in Integrator Validation Table Validation Validate field against values in a column of table based on condition (during Upload) Retrieve List of Values by attaching Component (in Excel document) Java Validation Provide List of Values for a field in document Validate field against complex business rules by extending java classes BneBaseSQL – SQL Java class contains all of the SQL queries required for LOV and upload validation BneUploadValidator- Validator Java class that contains all the business logic for Java validation BneAbstractListOfValues – Component Java class that contains all the business logic and setup information for generating list of values for Java page document (if used for Java Validated LOV)

21 © 2009 Oracle Corporation – Proprietary and Confidential 21 Interfaces in Integrator Validation Cont’d.. Group Validation Used to validate different interdependent fields as group or to validate a set of fields as a group at once Require user to indentify a parent field and multiple dependent fields Flexfield Validation Key Flex field and Desc Flex field Validation and LOV retrieval Identify KFF Segments and Parent Key flex field.Associate KFF Structure code Identify DFF Context & Segments and Parent Desc flex field.Associate DFF Structure code Other data integrity validation during upload – data types,column width,not nulls, etc Pop-list (For offline users) and calendar are other validation provided in the document

44 © 2009 Oracle Corporation – Proprietary and Confidential Question and Answers Thank You

45 © 2009 Oracle Corporation – Proprietary and Confidential FAQs and Tips 1.Desktop Integration framework is available above Release onwards. 2.Custom Table should be created in BNE schema. 3.Public Synonym against this custom table must be created in APPS schema. 4.Custom Table must be registered in BNE schema. 5.While choosing the custom table, choose application “Web Applications Desktop Integrator” 6.While creating custom integrator(used for uploading data to database) use “HR Upload Parameter List” as “Upload Parameter” in the “Integrator parameters” section 7.And add function “Desktop Integration - Create Document” for any new integrator. 8.For custom integrator with Text Content, assign parameter list "Web ADI: Download "Text File" Parameters“. 9.To clear BNE cache after any changes in custom integrator, pls use following URL and click on first “clear” link(and use browser back button to go to application)http://hostname/OA_HTML/BneAdminServlet 10.while creating parameter names, pls assign application if it is specific to appln and name it as unique as possible(or check name before creating new)
