Further to my last post I will elaborate further on the changes that we in the Apps development community need to prepare for. This will be a shock to many of us, seeing as the technology stack has remained fairly static over the last 10 years. I myself must admit to a sly smile when listening to the woes of non Apps developers who bemoan the need to constantly retrain. Well now that time has come for us as well!
Firstly we all need to get to grips with OA Framework which needs a good understanding of Java/J2EE. Secondly we need to get to grips with XML Publisher which is a very powerful reporting tool. As I read more about these subjects and how I am able utilise these technologies in my current work I will have an open discussion about it on the Blog.
These technologies will arrive in full strength in R12 and will dominate in Fusion. However Fusion will bring a revolution to the business models found in those modules which will now incorporate the Siebel and Peoplesoft Architectures. Lets be honest, these products do have a number of advantages over their comparative Oracle products.
So what are you waiting for, get up off your backside and start studying.
