Off to Openworld 2009 in a couple of days. Given that it's my second time I know a lot more of what to expect. But of course my schedule is overflowing again - even more of a mixed bag this time with fewer conference sessions, but more meetups and unconference sessions that I should have looked at more closely last year!
Here's what my main schedule looks like:
Hope to see you there - And a huge thanks to Oracle for the blogger's pass - wouldn't be there without it!
So you're working with Discoverer 10g integrated with the Oracle eBusiness Suite on Release 12. You've installed and set everything up per Metalink/MOS Note 373634.1 "Using Discoverer 10.1.2 with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12" plus created a custom application and responsibility to have it's own menu items corresponding to your Discoverer Workbooks/Worksheets.
You login to your new responsibility and click on your new menu entry that you created per Metalink/MOS Note "How to Create a Link to a Discoverer Workbook in Apps R12" and what do you get when you query subledger data such as Payables Invoices, (more...)

Revisited again 30-NOV-2010: Following the ARU change I've updated the Patch search engine (file orapatch.xml)
Update: The Note and Bug search engines (files oranote.xml and orabug.xml) have been updated post upgrade to My Oracle Support (MOS).
Navigating directly to a specific Oracle Patch, Metalink Note or Bug is a bit of a chore. Not to mention Metalink / My Oracle Support (MOS) could do with a mobile interface to speed things up & sidestep that Flash!
