A Generic Unix Script for Uploading eBusiness Concurrent Programs

I have posted a couple of articles recently on XML Publisher report development within Oracle eBusiness applications (A Design Pattern for Oracle eBusiness Audit Trail Reports with XML Publisher and Design Patterns for Database Reports with XML Publisher and Email Bursting). These reports are of one of several types of batch program, or concurrent program that can be defined within Oracle eBusiness.

Oracle eBusiness uses a number of metadata tables to store information on the programs, and in release 11.5 Oracle introduced a Unix utility called FNDLOAD to download the metadata to formatted text files to allow them to be uploaded via the same utility into downstream environments. At that time batch reports were generally developed in the Oracle Reports tool and typically there might only be two text files (known as LDT files after their extension), for the program and for associated value sets, and maybe one for request groups (which control access to the reports). The executable report file, the RDF, would just be copied to the target environment server directory. I wrote a set of wrapper scripts for the utility to streamline its use and to deal with a number of issues, including handling of audit fields, with a structure consisting of a separate pair of scripts for download and upload of each type of LDT file. I published these on Scribd in July 2009.

In working more recently with Oracle’s successor reporting tool, XML Publisher, I found that the number of objects involved in installation has increased substantially. As well as the LDT files there are also now XML configuration files and RTF (usually) templates, uploaded via a Java utility, XDOLoader. Installation also involves at least one PL/SQL package. For example the email version of my model reports (see the second link above) had 11 configuration files. For this reason, I decided to create a single script that would copy, upload and install all objects required for a concurrent program of any type, and I describe the script in this article.

Here is my original Scribd article, describing the issues mentioned, and with the original individual upload and download scripts.

The new script is here XX_Install_XMLCP_ksh, and here is the MD120 from the model article that uses it.

Directory Structure

The script operates on an input TAR file containing all the necessary files. The TAR file is called prog.tar after the program short name prog, and contains a directory also called prog with all the installation files. The installer uses relative paths and assumes that the TAR file, with the installer, is placed in a directory below the custom top directory, say $XX_TOP/rel. All loader files are copied to $XX_TOP/import and SQL files to $XX_TOP/install/sql.

After installation, a new directory will remain with all the installation files for reference, $XX_TOP/rel/prog.

Program Structure

The internal call structure of the Unix script is shown below.

The script operates on an input TAR file containing all the necessary files.

After extracting the TAR file, the script has local subroutines that can be divided into four categories, as above:

  1. Preliminaries – parameter processing, file moving and validation
  2. FNDLOAD uploads – uploading the LDT files
  3. XDOLoader uploads – uploading the data and any bursting XML files, and all layout templates present
  4. SQL installations – installing any SQL script present, and the package spec and body files

The following table gives a few notes on the main program and preliminary subroutines.

Query Query Query

In my last post, A Design Pattern for Oracle eBusiness Audit Trail Reports with XML Publisher, I described a database report module developed in Oracle’s XML Publisher tool. Of the report structure I wrote:

It has a master entity with two independent detail entities, and therefore requires a minimum of two queries.

But why does such a structure require two queries? And can we determine the minimum number of queries for reports in general? To start with, let’s define a report in this context as being a hierarchy of record groups, where:

  • a record group is a set of records having the same columns with (possibly) differing values
  • each group is linked to a single record in its (single) parent group by values in the parent record, except the top level (or root) group

For example, in the earlier post the root group is a set of bank accounts, with the two detail (or child) groups being the set of owners of the bank account and the set of audit records for the bank account parent record. Corresponding to this group structure, each bank account record is the root of the data hierarchies, comprising two sets of records below the bank account record, one for the owners and one for the audit records linked to the root record by the bank account id.

A (relational) query always returns a flat record set, and it’s this fact that determines the minimum number of queries required for a given group structure. A master-detail group structure can be flattened in the query by simply copying master fields on to the child record sets. The set cardinality is then the cardinality of the child set. The report designer uses their chosen reporting tool to specify display of the queried data in either flat, or in master-detail format.

In fact this approach works for any number of child levels, with the query cardinality being the number of bottom level descendants (using null records for potential parents that are in fact childless). It’s clear though that the approach will not work for any second child at the same level because there would be two cardinalities and no meaningful single record for both child groups could be constructed within a flat query.

This reasoning leads to the conclusion that the minimum number of queries required in general is equal to the number of groups minus the number of parent groups.

Query Query Query - example

In the earlier post I also stated:

This minimum number of queries is usually the best choice…

There are two main reasons for this:

  • each child query fires for every record returned by its parent, with associated performance impact
  • maintenance tends to be more difficult with extra queries; this is much worse when the individual groups, which should almost always be implemented by a maximum of one query each, are split, and then need to be joined back together procedurally

On thinking about this, it occurred to me that if the group structure were defined in a metadata table we might be able to return minimum query structures using an SQL query. Just one, obviously 🙂 . To save effort we could use Oracle’s handy HR demo schema with the employee hierarchy representing groups.

The remainder of this article describes the query I came up with. As it’s about hierarchies, recursion is the technique to use, and this is one of those cases where Oracle’s old tree-walk syntax is too limited, so I am using the Oracle 11.2 recursive subquery factoring feature.

The query isn’t going to be of practical value for report group structures since these are always quite small in size, but I expect there are different applications where this kind of Primogeniture Recursion would be useful.

A Design Pattern for Oracle eBusiness Audit Trail Reports with XML Publisher

Oracle eBusiness applications allow audit history records to be automatically maintained on database tables, as explained in the release 12 System Administrator’s guide, Reporting On AuditTrail Data.

Oracle E-Business Suite provides an auditing mechanism based on Oracle database triggers. AuditTrail stores change information in a “shadow table” of the audited table. This mechanism saves audit data in an uncompressed but “sparse” format, and you enable auditing for particular tables and groups of tables (“audit groups”).

Oracle provides an Audit Query Navigator page where it is possible to search for changes by primary key values. For reporting purposes, the manual says:

You should write audit reports as needed. Audit Trail provides the views of your shadow tables to make audit reporting easier; you can write your reports to use these views.

In fact the views are of little practical use, and it is quite hard to develop reports that are user-friendly, efficient and not over-complex, owing, amongst other things, to the “sparse” data format. However, once you have developed one you can use that as a design pattern and starting point for audit reporting on any of the eBusiness tables.

In this article I provide such a report for auditing external bank account changes on Oracle eBusiness 12.1. The report displays the current record, with lookup information, followed by a list of the changes within an input date range. Only records that have changes within that range are included, and for each change only the fields that were changed are listed. The lookup information includes a list of detail records, making the report overall pretty general in structure: It has a master entity with two independent detail entities, and therefore requires a minimum of two queries. This minimum number of queries is usually the best choice and is what I have implemented (it’s fine to have an extra query for global data, but I don’t have any here). The main query makes extensive use of analytic functions, case expressions and subquery factors to achieve the necessary data transformations as simply and efficiently as possible.

The report is implemented in XML (or BI) Publisher, which is the main batch reporting tool for Oracle eBusiness.

I start by showing sample output from the report, followed by the RTF template. The queries are then documented, starting with query structure diagrams with annotations explaining the logic. A link is included to a zip file with all the code and templates needed to install the report. Oracle provides extensive documentation on the setup of Auditing and developing in XML Publisher, so I will not cover this.

Report Layout
Example Output in Excel Format

  • There are three regions
    • Bank Account Current Record – the master record
    • Owners – first detail block, listing the owners of the bank account
    • Bank Account Changes – the second detail block, listing the audit history. Note that unchanged fields are omitted
  • Note that some audit fields are displayed directly, such as account number, while for others, such as branch number, the display value is on a referenced table

XML Publisher RTF Tempate

  • Note that each audit field has its own row in the table, but the if-block excludes it if both old and new values are null
