    EBS 12.2 extensions using Apex and Weblogic Licensing

    3881696

      Hello,

       

      An EBS customer for over a decade is now upgrading to EBS 12.2.7 from 11i demonstrating their commitment to be stay aligned with Oracle thru that investment. They plan to use Application Express(Apex) for some of the applications extensions they want to build towards higher adoption of the EBS core solution for some of their users. We reviewed this document.

       

      https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/apex/application-express/apex-deploy-installation-1878444.html 

       

      In this document, Oracle’s recommended option of the Web listener component out of the three mentioned here is the Oracle REST Data Services option. There is a  note in that option’s paragraph that says “There are licensing costs associated with Oracle WebLogic Server.”. Our understanding is that since EBS 12.2 comes included with Welogic built-in for  the tech stack as part of the Middleware, there is no further Weblogic licensing required for the use of Apex with the Oracle REST Data Services option as an EBS 12.2.7+ baseline customer. We feel that additional licensing could apply to non-12.2-EBS customers or non-EBS customers, but customers as this one getting into EBS 12.2.7 does not need any further Weblogic licensing.

       

      Please can someone confirm?

       

      Thanks,

      Manish
