Alternate Accounts – GL Feature That Helps Avoid Journal Import Errors

Subledger Create Accounting Program or GL Journal Import may sometimes fail due to having to transfer data into GL on an invalid account - one that was recently disabled or end-dated. 

To help avoid such errors, GL provides the feature of Alternate Accounts which gives the users an opportunity to setup a replacement code combination for an invalidated one, allowing the mentioned programs to continue until successful completion.

リカバリできなきゃ意味がない! 貴方のバックアップ・リカバリ対策は本当に大丈夫?

shibacho-sensei

みなさん、ようやく春が来ますね~。有り難いことに、東奔西走という言葉を使いたくなる状況の"しばちょう"こと、柴田長(しばた つかさ)です。

さて、「不幸にも何かしらの原因によりデータベースのリストア・リカバリが必要になったが、いざ実行しようとしても設計から漏れていて手順が無い」とか、「バックアップを取得しているだけで一度もリカバリのテスト実行したことがないので本当に戻せるのか不安だ。」と言う話を耳にすることが残念ながら少なくありません。

私のSIer時代を思い返してみても、万が一の場合にしか必要の無い備えは開発スケジュール上、後回しになる傾向があったかなとも思います。しかし、トラブルが発生する場合は、二重、三重の障害が重なることも少なからずありますので、被害を最小限に食い止める絶対的な防護壁として確実なリストア・ リカバリの実行が求められるのも事実です。

・・・・という事で、今回は、RMANVALIDATEコマンド/オプションを使用して、”Recovery Manager”の名前の通りにリカバリを管理する方法を、第21回から第24回の連載の復習も兼ねて、体験していただきたいと思います。

Предложение века: как получить публичное облако Oracle Cloud в свой ЦОД

Автор: Нирав Мехта (Nirav Mehta), Вице-президент Oracle по развитию продуктов

Привлекательность облачных сервисов нельзя отрицать, а наступление облачной эры – остановить. Однако подавляющее число приложений не могут быть перенесены в публичное облако из-за законодательных ограничений, соображений безопасности данных, а также проблем, связанных с шириной, доступностью и надежностью каналов в Интернет.

Если словосочетание «частное облако» звучит для вас, как оксюморон, вы, скорее всего, не одиноки. Поставщики ИТ-решений сделали много попыток предложить «частное облако», то есть облако, (more...)

Microservices and the Integration Platform by Robert Wunderlich

clip_image002In case you have not already heard of microservices, yet another evolution is upon us in the world of software development. A microservice is the antonym of the monolith and is a relatively new name for some concepts that have been around for some time. Microservices push us further toward the dream of decoupling with a promise of simpler, easier and cheaper services that are more reusable. As we get started, you can find (more...)

理解电子商务套件的冲突域

Adriana GarjoabaOracle201638

作者:Mike Waddoups甲骨文大学教师和技术团队主管

电子商务套件能够以后台批量处理的方式运行程序。它能够简单地启动和运行程序、记录它们的执行情况并完成程序,并且无需用户对其进行监控。

电子商务套件中 的冲突域问题涉及到并发程序和并行执行情况。这些程序需要避免与其他程序发生冲突,因为这种冲突可能导致数据错误或阻止程序 执行。如果存在冲突问题,可能需要先运行并完成其他程序。

电子商务套件通过冲突域 的 概念来处理这种问题,冲突域能够避免两个或两个以上的并发程序因同时执行而产生的问题。用户通常不会对程序进行监控,因此程序必须能够自己解决问题。以下是一些可能出现的冲突问题:

一 个程序可能:

· 需要首先运行另一个程序

· 需要被其他程序锁定的数据元素

· 存在其他需要执行的冲突

您还会遇到其他类型的冲突。但我们并不需要找出所有的冲突,只需要知道如何防止冲突。

发生冲突的程序可能产生两种结果:

1. 发生冲突的程序彼此相互锁定,两个程序都无法执行。

2. 其中一个程序因冲突而生成错误数据。

处理冲突的最佳时机是在并发程序创建的时候。有几种方法可以处理冲突。

一 种方法是创建一个并发请求集,您可以在此建立运行顺序,首先运行一个程序,当其完成后再运行第二个程序。

另一种方法是使用冲突域和程序定义来执行明确存在冲突的程序。这表示,您可以确定存在冲突的程序,使其不会同时运行。

第三种方法是仅允许特定的用户访问可能存在冲突的程序。其前提是,这些用户能够理解冲突情况,并且知道不应同时运行两个程序。

当您注册并发程序时,您应该对不兼容的程序进行定义。您可以创建一个与您注册的程序不兼容的程序列表。不兼容性可分为两种类型 进行定义。

这两种冲突类型是:

· 全局冲突 跨 整个电子商务套件的全局性不兼容

· 域冲突 数据组(域)抽象表示之间的冲突,例如账套

当您注册一个程序时,您可以将其设置为Run Alone(单独运行)程序。这样做的话,在该程序运行时将不会有其他程序同时运行,从而避免了冲突。

您可以在一个冲突域(一个域就是数据组的抽象表示)中找出不兼容程序的不兼容数据。冲突域可以根据用户定义自动设置。用户可以访问特定的账套,或特定的用户组织。

用户的登录ID 可 识别他们的定义特征,而冲突域正是由这些用户特征确定的。

冲突解决管理器(Conflict Resolution Manager) 的功能是确定何时可以执行发生冲突的两个程序。如果A程 序和B程 序不兼容,并且A正 在运行,则B将 等待。如果B程 序正在运行,则A将 等待。由于两个程序不兼容,它们无法同时运行。

我希望您能够加入我开设的完整网络讲座 E-Business Suite: Conflict Domains Explained, 我将在此为您介绍如何设置程序以处理域冲突。

    The Data Governance Journey – What do we take on the trip?

    In simple terms, an organization performs transactions – a few transaction examples for a manufacturing company include: purchase supplies, produce a product, sell products to customers, receive payment for sales, pay for supplies. For statutory purposes, the organization records (more...)
