How to I see the debug messages either in log file or output file in oracle applications?

When you register a concurrent programs, such plsql packages, you can display the debug outputs either at output file or log file or both depending on the api you use. There are two functions from fnd_file packages that can be used to display the debug messages.

fnd_file.put_line(FND_FILE.LOG,"This is logfile test");

fnd_file.put_line(FND_FILE.out,"This is output test");

Back and blogging again

It's been a long time since I did anything on this site. I've been taking a break from cyberspace. The forums and the blog were getting too much, on top of my work. But I think I've got my work-life balance back under control (famous last words). Anyway, I've started blogging again, and participating in the forums.



But really I'm just updating this because the last message I posted here was so negative. Blogger did sort out the problem, so that's cool.



I feel better now… Continue

How To Add Responsibility to USER using pl/sql? - Oracle Applications

If you have the Apps Password, its quite easy to create a FND_USER for yourself by using the API. I find this script very useful when development environment gets cloned from Production(that is when i do not have FND_USER in Production).



Please note that:-

1. You will be allocated System Administrator by this script. Hence you can assign whatever responsibilities that you desire latter, after logging in.

2. The password will be set to oracle

3. You need apps password… Continue

Where IT is going

Thought I'd share something that came down the pike. I really think it's not going to be so much about the systems but rather what we do with the data. Where is data management most needed? Energy? Healthcare? Yes, Yes and Yes

The writing is on on the wall. IT is getting more focused and Healthcare, Energy and Infrastructure is where it will be.. Thoughts?

Locks on oracle database & Oracle applications Processing.

In a single-user database, the user can modify data in the database without concern for other users modifying the same data at the same time. However, in a multiuser database, the statements within multiple simultaneous transactions can update the same data. Transactions executing at the same time need to produce meaningful and consistent results. Therefore, control of data concurrency and data consistency is vital in a multiuser database.



* Data concurrency means that many users can… Continue

Validate the credit card (oracle 10 g plsql code)

The Luhn algorithm or Luhn formula, also known as the “modulus 10″ or “mod 10″ algorithm, is a simple checksum formula used to validate a variety of identification numbers, such as credit card numbers and Canadian Social Insurance Numbers.



Recently, Oracle has stopped validating the credit card numbers as there is match for Authorization of credit card. However, this rudimentary mod-10 LUHN algorithm is still valid and valuable for us to check.



Hence, I started creating… Continue

Oracle Applications Steps To Register Shell Script As A Concurrent Program

There are two methods to handle, one with symbolic link another without symbolic link.



step 1: Place the .prog script under the bin directory for your applications top directory.

For example, call the script SHELLDEMO.prog and place it under $XXCUS/bin



step 2: Make a symbolic link from your script to $FND_TOP/bin/fndcpesr

For example, if the script is called SHELLDEMO.prog use this:



ln -s $FND_TOP/bin/fndcpesr SHELLDEMO



This link should be… Continue

GL Date Move for Lockbox Records - Oracle Applications tips - SQL

Few companies have streamlined their operations to avoid GL_Date move. Moving GL date is very common fix in many companies, especially during the month end activities. Here is one of the requirements in which we need to move the gl_date of the lockbox records before creating the lockbox records.



The lockbox data is sent by banks very late evening. In addition, loading errors and the records errors are being fixed at night. However, General ledger period will be closed by 12 midnight.… Continue

Higher productivity and a positive impact to your organization

Every kind of storage is bound to overflow sometime or the other; it also applies to software industries. Companies that have large storage data, which would also be needed for future trend analysis, reduce retrieval speed. Such companies can opt for data archiving solutions. Data archiving is built on the concept of preserving data through classification and storage, helps in improving throughput.…

Via Twitter, an interesting regexp_replace puzzle

Prolific and knowledgeable Oracle Ace LewisC asked a regular expression (more specifically, regexp_replace) question on Twitter, and I found myself thinking, "hey, I bet I could actually answer that!" So I did. Then I thought about my answer a bit more, and decided to write a blog post to expand upon my original 140-character response.

Nothing to panic!: Research results suggest that SHA1 has, at most, 69 bit strength, significantly less than the 80 bits, but still no easy matter to attack with current technology. SHA-1 is secure and stronger than previous algorithm. According to wikipedia you can find a collision for SHA-1 in 2 to the power of 69 operations. This… Continue

Database hang and Row Cache Lock concurrency troubleshooting

This post will help to analyze Oracle database instance slowdown that can happen due to considerable row cache lock (enqueue) wait events. It’s is based on a real case of a database hang that I worked on recently. I must admit this type of situation does not appear often but it’s very dangerous since it can considerably slow down a database instance or even freeze it for a short period of time. In most cases SQL against ASH view and Systemstate dumps can help to nail down the problem unless…
