Custom JSP integrated with Ebusiness Suite
We have been, very successfully, deploying custom JSPs that has the same functionality as Oracle iStore and have been able to integrate every functionality, offered by Oracle iStore, with Oracle Ebusiness Suite. We created an merchant UI which integrates 3 modules using a single sign in feature. Even today, Oracle iStore, Oracle iSupport and Oracle iPayment cannot be managed by the same administrator. We always felt the need to do this for some of the customers who wanted all the 3 modules implemented. And that’s when we launched eStorLite, eServiceLite, ePaymentLite. With a single sign on by the end user, we can allow the user to place orders into Order Management, create/view or update Service Requests and be able to place Credit Card orders.
For merchant UI, we provided the functionality to be able to manage the catalog and manage the look and feel of the Service Request creation page. We, deployed, the facility to setup Payees and Backend Payment system that’s very similar to the Oracle Payments. Using public pl/sql apis, end users are able to create customers and orders without any issues and the store or database administrators do not have to worry about the patches disrupting the day-to-day operation. We tested these APIs on 11.5.1 through 11.5.10 and now Release 12.
With less 100 JSPs, we feel this is a very viable option for any customer who do not wish to implement Oracle iStore or Oracle iSupport incurring very high costs in implemenation and maintenance thereafter.
