Creating a Custom Application in Applications 11i

Creating a Custom Application in Applications 11i



Custom Applications are required if you are creating new forms, reports, etc. This allows you to segregate your custom written files from the standard seeded functionality that Oracle Applications provide. Customizations can therefore be preserved when applying patches or upgrades to your environment.



1) Make the directory structure for your custom application files.


cd $APPL_TOP


mkdir mz


mkdir mz/11.5.0


mkdir mz/11.5.0/admin


mkdir mz/11.5.0/admin/sql


mkdir mz/11.5.0/admin/odf


mkdir mz/11.5.0/sql


mkdir mz/11.5.0/bin


mkdir mz/11.5.0/reports


mkdir mz/11.5.0/reports/US


mkdir mz/11.5.0/forms


mkdir mz/11.5.0/forms/US


mkdir mz/11.5.0/$APPLLIB


mkdir mz/11.5.0/$APPLOUT


mkdir mz/11.5.0/$APPLLOG



2) Add the custom module into the environment



Apply ADX.E.1 and add the entry to topfile.txt as a standard product top entry (follow the existing model in the file)



Customised environment variables can be added to AutoConfig by using the filename specificed by s_custom_file, which is then called from the APPSORA.env file.



If using Forms Listener Servlet, you may also need to add $CUSTOM_TOP to formsservlet.ini in $APACHE_TOP/Jserv/etc



3) Create new tablespace for database objects


create tablespace MZ datafile '/emea/oracle/visuk09/visuk09data/mz.dbf' size 10M default storage(initial 10k next 10k)



4) Create schema


create user mz identified by mz default tablespace mz


temporary tablespace temp quota unlimited on mz quota unlimited on temp;


grant connect, resource to mz;



5) Register your Oracle Schema.


Login to Applications with System Administrator responsibility


Navigate to Application-->Register


Application = MZ Custom


Short Name = MZ


Basepath = MZ_TOP


Description = MZ Custom Application



6) Register Oracle User


Naviate to Security-->Oracle-->Register


Database User Name = MZ


Password = MZ


Privilege = Enabled


Install Group = 0


Description = MZ Custom Application User



7) Add Application to a Data Group


Navigate to Security-->Oracle-->DataGroup


Data Group = MZGroup


Description = MZ Custom Data Group


Click on "Copy Applications from" and pick Standard data Group, then add the following entry.


Application = MZ Custom


Oracle ID = APPS


Description = MZ Custom Application



8) Create custom request group


This will act as a placeholder for any custom reports we wish to make available for the Custom Responsibility (which is defined at a later stage)


Navigate to Security-->responsbility-->Request


Group = MZ Request Group


Application = MZ Custom


Code = MZ


Description = MZ Custom Requests


We will not define any requests to add to the group at this stage, but you can add some now if required.



9) Create custom menu


This will act as a placeholder for any menu items we wish to make available for the Custom Responsibility (which is defined at a later stage) We will create two menus, one for Core Applications and one for Self Service.


Navigate to Application-->Menu


Menu = MZ_CUSTOM_MENU


User Menu Name = MZ Custom Application


Menu Type =


Description = MZ Custom Application Menu


Seq = 100


Prompt = View Requests


Submenu =


Function = View All Concurrent Requests


Description = View Requests
Seq = 110


Prompt = Run Requests


Submenu =


Function = Requests: Submit


Description = Submit Requests
Menu = MZ_CUSTOM_MENU_SSWA


User Menu Name = MZ Custom Application SSWA


Menu Type =


Description = MZ Custom Application Menu for SSWA



10) Create new responsibility.


One for Core Applications and One for Self Service (SSWA)


Navigate to Security-->Responsibility-->Define


Responsibility Name = MZ Custom


Application = MZ Custom


Responsibility Key = MZCUSTOM


Description = MZ Custom Responsibility


Available From = Oracle Applications


Data Group Name = mzGroup Data Group


Application = MZ Custom


Menu = MZ Custom Application


Request Group Name = MZ Request Group
Responsibility Name = MZ Custom SSWA


Application = MZ Custom



Responsibility Key = MZCUSTOMSSWA


Description = MZ Custom Responsibility SSWA


Available From = Oracle Self Service Web Applications


Data Group Name = mzGroup


Data Group Application = MZ Custom


Menu = MZ Custom Application SSWA


Request Group Name = MZ Request Group



11) Add responsibility to user


Navigate to Security-->User-->DefineAdd MZ Custom responsibility to users as required.



12) Other considerationsYou are now ready to create your database Objects, custom Reports, Forms, Packages, etc



Create the source code files in the MZ_TOP directory appropriate for the type of object. For example formswould be located in $MZ_TOP/forms/US or package source code in $MZ_TOP/admin/sql for example.



Database Objects, such as tables, indexes and sequences should be created in the MZ schema, then you need to


a) Grant all privilege from each custom data object to the APPS schema.


For example : logged in as MZ user


SQL> grant all privileges on myTable to apps;



b) Create a synonym in APPS for each custom data object For example : logged in as APPS user


create synonym myTable for mz.myTable;



Other database objects, such as views and packages should be created directly in the APPS schema.
