Can I use eprentise and FlexField on E-Business Suite R12?
What database version, operating system, or hardware does eprentise require?
Tell me more about the architecture of eprentise.
- A client tier that supplies the user interface
- An application tier responsible for servicing requests and providing responses to the client tier
- A database tier, which hosts and manages the eprentise schema
The client interface is provided as HTML pages which can be accessed via a URL on a standard web browser. Users log into the application through a Login link provided on the eprentise Index page. You can use a standard web browser (e.g., Internet Explorer 6.0+ or Mozilla Firefox 2.0+) on any type of networked work station.
The application tier provides for client side validation and manages the communication between the client tier and the database tier. The Application tier also hosts the eprentise reports engine. The current version of the eprentise software is supported on any Linux or UNIX platform that is also capable of supporting Oracle database versions 9i and above. Apache Tomcat server provides the technology component services and acts as the web server, processing the client requests by way of Web Listener and Java Servlet Engine (JSP).
The eprentise database schema houses the eprentise knowledge repository and the core rules engine. The eprentise schema is created with its own dedicated data, index, temporary table space, and all the database objects required to operate when you install the software.
Both application and database tiers may reside on the same physical server that hosts your Oracle E-Business Suite test or production instances. It must at least reside on a server that has a DBlink connection to these instances.

Is eprentise a software solution or a consulting solution where you write custom code?
Business and technical people who have seen brief eprentise demonstrations have told us the user interface is clear, uncluttered, and easily understood. You will not need specialist IT resources or consultants to run the software or to write extensions.
The eprentise team works with your team to determine the best approach to get the desired results.
Is eprentise compatible with Oracle AIM or other methodologies?
What kind of development, implementation, and testing environments are needed?
What training do you provide?

Who needs to be involved with installing and running eprentise?
A DBA with system privileges makes a clone of the database and installs eprentise software. No special skills or new techniques are needed. The install can be completed in about a half day. The DBA may also create eprentise users and projects so that the correct privileges are assigned. A DBA may also be required to monitor performance, and adjust tablespaces or rollback segments as the data is manipulated. After running Metadata Analysis and analyzing the results, it usually takes a few days from start to finish for each transformation run.
