Oracle R12 New Features

Allow Transition Initiator to Delete “Pending for Approval” Transactions
In Release 12, when a manager or employee submits a transaction for approval in Self-
Service Human Resources, no further action is allowed by the initiator while the
transaction is pending approval, preventing users from deleting inaccurate transactions.

RUP2 introduces a new system profile that, when enabled, allows the initiator of a
transaction to delete a transaction at any level in the approval chain while it is pending

This feature can be enabled using the new system profile HR:Enable Initiator to Delete a
Pending-Approval Transaction. When the profile is set to “Yes,” the initiator of a
transaction will be allowed to delete “Pending for Approval” transactions. When the
profile is set to "No," the initiator will not be allowed to delete “Pending for Approval”

Look and Feel – “Swan” User Interface
The new “Swan” user interface (UI) greatly improves the look and feel of the Oracle E-Business Suite, significantly enhancing usability and productivity. The “Swan” UI brings together some of the best UI concepts from Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, and JD Edwards applications.
Proxy User
Oracle User Management
Oracle E-Business Suite now allows a user to specify a proxy who can act on their behalf.
For example, an executive can designate an assistant as a proxy, allowing that assistant to create, edit or approve transactions on behalf of that executive.
Registration Process Enhancements
Oracle User Management
The Oracle User Management registration process functionality is enhanced to support
the following features:
• Registration processes for administrative actions (role assignment) can be defined
separately from policies relating to self-service requests.
• Specific business events or business logic can be invoked for each registration
process, as required.
Java Cache Support
Changes in setup data are immediately visible in all Java Virtual Machines (JVMs) without those JVMs having to be restarted.
Flexfield Segment Additional Where Clause
An additional WHERE clause can be attached to a flexfield segment to enforce extra
validation on that segment beyond the value set.
PL/SQL and Key Flexfield Validated Value Sets
Two new flexfield value set types are introduced: PL/SQL validated value sets are
validated via a PL/SQL procedure, and Key flexfield validated value sets can
declaratively reference a key flexfield combination.
Multi-Org Access Control
In Release 12, Multi-Org Access Control (MOAC) allows a user to access data for
different operating units (OUs) in a Multi-Org enabled instance without switching
responsibilities. In transaction entry or inquiry user interfaces, a user can either choose an
operating unit explicitly, or use another org-sensitive field to derive the operating unit
Oracle Applications Framework-Based Request Set Submission UI
An Oracle Applications Framework-based UI for request set submission is available in
this release.
Service Interface
The service interface is a Java interface that is designed to support both web services and
local Java APIs. The service interface provides consistent APIs and error handling
behavior across the different application products. Included is support for the new
Service Data Object standard to increase interoperability in a Service Oriented
Architecture. Service data objects are used to represent business objects in a standardized
manner. See the Oracle Integration Repository for more information on how to register
and discover services, and optionally configure a service as a public Web service.
Service Tester
The service tester user interface is used to create unit and integration tests. The tests are
recorded in documents as structured XML data. For integration testing, each test file can
contain multiple test suites, and each test suite can have multiple test cases. As part of
periodic system tests, service tests can be played back from either JDeveloper or from the
operating system command line
“Swan” User Interface
As stated in Section 4, the new “Swan” user interface (UI) greatly improves the look and
feel of the Oracle E-Business Suite, significantly enhancing usability and productivity.
