In order for companies to remain competitive in the market place, more companies are joining together in joint partnerships.  A Joint Venture is a partnership between multiple entities that share in the cost and revenue associated with the joint venture.


The management of financials of a Joint Venture is key to the successful business relationship between joint venture partners. Accurate management of joint venture, budgets, costs, invoices and payments help ensure transparency of the joint venture financials. 


Percentage of Ownership and Distributions feature from JD Edwards EnterpriseOne provides the architectural foundation to create and manage joint ventures and the distribution of amounts among joint venture partners using a JV’s percentage of ownership.


The JVM solution can be downloaded from the update center on the ESU associated with BUG 22541426. The optional UX One content requires Tools 9.2.2.x. UDOs can be downloaded from the update center on the BUGS 26585889 & 26929340

pastedImage_0.pngHere is one more reason for existing and prospective JD Edwards customers and users to celebrate. Another spectacular release is up for grabs. This major release has both Application as well as Tools based enhancements.

Have a look at the Tools based updates with Release 9.2.2!

Tools Release 9.2.2 provides customers with additional enhancements benefiting all of our Applications, including Notification framework, new Orchestration extensibility features, operational simplification tools to simplify the adoption of new features, a whitepaper on optimizing performance and several updated platform certifications.

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Notifications

Announcing an exciting new enhancement and another building block to your Digital Transformation strategy: Notifications for JD Edwards. More than just a pop-up alert, the notification system enables workers to remain in touch with the critical conditions and events that happen continuously throughout the enterprise, and to quickly take action on those events even when they are not signed on to the JD Edwards system.

Using Orchestrator Studio, business users can design notifications specific to their organizations processes, rules, and required action. Notification can be a simple text messages, information from Watchlists, or the full power of orchestrations. A scheduler allows the notifications to run periodically and automatically, thereby continuously monitoring the JD Edwards system for critical conditions and events. When a critical event or exception is detected, the notification system will notify the appropriate users via their preferred delivery: within the JD Edwards web client, in the JD Edwards Work Center, or via email or text message.

Enhancements to the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne user interface include a new notification list, represented by a bell icon, where a user can review and act on incoming notifications. A new “My Subscriptions” page allows users to subscribe to notifications, provide inputs, choose their preferred delivery methods, and control the receipt of their notifications.

This enhancement continues JD Edwards’ investment in Alert, Analyze, and Act to increase business process efficiencies and user productivity.

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Orchestrator Enhancements

Oracle continues to expand the capabilities and significance of the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Orchestrator as a framework to enable Digital Transformation. Specifically, this latest release includes these major enhancements to Orchestrator:

  • Iterative input for orchestration steps allows orchestrations to act on sets of data rather than individual data items, effectively giving orchestrations a degree of batch processing power.
  • A new Watchlist service request allows orchestrations to use the information from Watchlists, such as critical or warning states, threshold levels, and number of records, within an orchestration. With this enhancement, Watchlists can be the catalyst to trigger orchestrations, and orchestrations can be a vehicle to push email or text notifications to users.
  • A new database connector allows orchestrations to read from and write to non-JD Edwards databases using standard SQL protocol. This feature enables external databases to be the source of input for orchestrations. It also allows data that is not appropriate for transaction tables to be stored for analysis, archive, or integration purposes.
  • A new Watchlist service request allows orchestrations to use the information from Watchlists, such as critical or warning states, threshold levels, and number of records, within an orchestration. With this enhancement, Watchlists can be the catalyst to trigger orchestrations, and orchestrations can be a vehicle to push email or text notifications to users.
  • As described above, notifications are a major new capability allowing users to subscribe to important events or conditions and to take appropriate action. Notifications can also be included as a step within an orchestration, allowing the notification to be integrated into a broader business process.
  • A new scheduler allows orchestrations to run periodically and automatically. Using this capability, orchestrations can be designed to continuously monitor conditions such as inventory levels, customer credit limits, equipment meter readings and so on---any condition internal or external to the JD Edwards system–-and conditionally take action or send notifications based on rules in the orchestration.
  • Adoption of the Open Authorization (OAuth) 2.0 framework allows orchestrations to exchange REST calls and data with Oracle Cloud services and other third-party systems using a common, industry-standard authorization protocol.


Server Manager Foundation and REST API Enhancements

Server Manager for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne remains the key Life Cycle Management tool for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne server components/products. In its continued pursuit to provide customers with low TCO, JD Edwards has extended the Server Manager capabilities to now perform automated Health Checks for its registered JD Edwards instances listed below:

  • Enterprise Server
  • HTML Server
  • Application Interface Services Server (AIS)
  • Transaction Server (RTE)
  • Business Services Server (BSSV)
  • BI Publisher Server for One View Reporting (OVR)
  • Database Server

These Health Checks can be performed either from the user interface of Server Manager Console or as REST APIs. There are also new additional REST API enhancements for provisioning, monitoring, and diagnostics. Refer to the REST API for Server Manager Guide for the complete list of REST APIs available with Server Manager. Customers can leverage these REST APIs to build mobile apps and other automation for JD Edwards Server Manager functions.


Enhancements to Simplify Staying Current

The following Tools enhancements simplify the processes for customers to adopt and stay current with new application enhancements:

  • Object Tracking and Enhanced Impact Analysis: This new capability provides tracking and visibility of business functions (BSFN) execution within JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. Business functions are the core logic processing for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne interactive and batch applications. Providing greater insight into their usage simplifies the upgrade/patching processes, assists with troubleshooting, performance, and managing compliance. Similar to tracking usage of interactive and batch application, business functions statistics are consumable by out of the box UX One analytics and helps customers identify business functions actively used in their business processes.
  • Customization Workbench Enhanced to Support ESUs: The streamlined process of retrofitting customizations, which was earlier available for Simplified Upgrade, is now extended to support all customized JD Edward EnterpriseOne objects impacted by Electronic Software Updates (ESU).


For details on what is announced, go through this MOS Document : Announcing JD Edwards EnterpriseOne User Experience Enhancements, New Mobile Features, Leveraging Oracle PaaS, Industry ERP Functionality, and Tools Digital Transformation Features (October 2017) (Doc ID 2311361.1)

Three new APIs have been added with Tools Release for retrieving/inserting media object attachments in the F98MODAT table. This new KM document provides information about these new APIs. Doc 2301138.1. Reader.png

The VAT Information Exchange System (VIES) is an electronic means of transmitting information relating to VAT registration (i.e., validity of VAT numbers) of companies registered in the European Union. EU law requires that, where goods or services are procured within the EU, VAT must be paid only in the member state where the purchaser resides. For this reason, suppliers need an easy way to validate the VAT numbers presented by purchasers. This validation is performed through VIES.


VIES does not itself maintain a VAT number database. Instead, it forwards the VAT number validation query to the database of the member state concerned and, upon reply, it transmits back to the inquirer the information provided by the member state. This information includes at least a "YES/NO" answer on the existence and validity of the supplied number. It may also include additional information, such as the holder's name and address, if this is provided by the member state.


The VIES also provides a Web Service that can be used by various applications to automatically do the VAT ID validation.


As of release 9.0 the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne added a feature that allows VAT ID validation for the Address Book records in European Union countries via the VIES Web Service. Before that there used to be separate business functions to validate the Tax IDs in various EU countries. The VIES validation can be turned off and in that case the individual country validations are still available (see E1: 74: How To Set Up Address Book Tax ID Validation for EMEA Localization (Doc ID 625787.1)) and can be used, but the new VIES validation streamlines the process.


Besides validations when adding and changing Address Book records there is also an UBE that does batch validations (Validate VAT ID VIES program (R74101) for the existing Address Book records.


In order to take advantage of this feature one needs to do some setup to allow the JD Edwards to communicate with the VIES Web Service. Find more on how to set up and use VIES in:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Working With the VIES to Validate EU VAT IDs (Doc ID 1193855.1)


How to use information is available in the 9.2 JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Applications Tax Processing Implementation Guide.


Setup information for Tools Release 9.2 can be found in the 9.2 JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Applications Business Interfaces Implementation Guide.
