JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools 8.98.3 Now Available


End User Productivity Improvements across the Application Suite
Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Release features new enhancements that improve the end user experience. The new Related Information Application Framework for WebCenter Spaces enables users to link JD Edwards EnterpriseOne transactions to Web 2.0 collaboration workspaces. Users can also copy and paste information between JD Edwards EnterpriseOne grid area and other applications, and as well as define their own grid formats in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications by simply dragging and dropping the column headers. This new release also includes enhanced support for the Firebox browser in the areas of import/export and working with media object attachments.

Improvements in Reporting and Workflow
The embedded BI Publisher capability has been improved with additional email delivery options and better support for multiple language implementations. The interactive BI Publisher capability for end user reporting has been improved by providing intuitive descriptions when building queries as well as automatically retrieving the description related to a UDC (User Define Code). Workflow Approval Delegation and Task Re-assignment now enables users to delegate the approval of workflow tasks, such as expense or requisition approval.

New and improved System Administration tools
The Package Build process has been simplified to allow for the deployment of update packages without system downtime. Update packages containing UBEs and APPL objects will deploy without requiring batch or interactive processing to be suspended. The Batch Window Profiling Utility provides administrators with a view of the batch processing workload for planning and optimization.
