Latest JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Update Expands UI Innovation, Drives Down Upgrade Costs

Launched in October 2012, Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Update 2 delivers a series of new innovations to improve user experience, increase productivity, and speed upgrades.

Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools offer a complete set of infrastructure tools to help midsize organizations easily install, update, manage, and optimize JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications.

"We really understand the resource restraints midsize companies face, which is why Oracle's JD Edwards has long been the industry leader in delivering ease of use," says Lyle Ekdahl, vice president and general manager, Oracle’s JD Edwards. "With this new release we've extended that leadership to speed every phase of the application lifecycle, from implementation to upgrade."

UI Innovations Drive Productivity
The latest update includes a series of UI improvements designed to make administrators more productive. New features include
  • A new menu toolbar breadcrumbs feature
  • Improvements to user-defined favorites
  • The ability to run JD Edwards EnterpriseOne portlet applications directly in a JD Edwards EnterpriseOne page
In addition, support for the JAX-WS Web service standard speeds application development and integration by allowing media object attachments to be accessed via business services.

To simplify management of technology infrastructure, the latest update also provides support for Oracle VM 3.1, Chrome browser on Windows, and certification for Oracle Advanced Compression.

New Tools to Speed and Simplify Updates
To further drive down the cost of upgrades, a set of new utilities identifies differences between releases or environments for application configuration and customizations.

For example, the application configuration analyzer capability includes information on processing options, data dictionaries, and user-defined codes. As a result, administrators can verify that their application configurations have been preserved during the upgrade process—and also ensure consistency across two or more environments, such as production and test.

In addition, the customization object analyzer feature identifies customer-specific modifications made using the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne design tools, such as the forms design aid.

"This will allow customers to quickly identify, review, and estimate the level of effort to retrofit customizations during an upgrade project and to determine if the modification should be retired or if it should be retrofitted to the new release," explains Ekdahl.
