    Oracle Workflow Notification Mailer
    Wednesday, November 15, 2006
    Register for R12 upgrade
    On popular request from my readers, I need to take a break from Oracle Identity Management Updates and need to Update on Oracle Workflow Notification Mailer.

    Oracle Workflow in itself is a Product which is tough to cover in this blog but I am going to cover few important & frequently used components from Oracle Apps DBA point of view which is Workflow Notification Mailer .

    Currently with OWF.H (Oracle Work Flow Minipack H) or 11.5.10 Oracle Applications Uses Java Mailer & before that it used to be C Mailer. Some of you who are on 11.5.8 or lower version might still be using wfmail.cfg under FND_TOP . Configuration is quite simple via OAM (Oracle Application Manager) provided you or your unix team setup inbound & outbound mails set up correctly. Notification Mailer will inturn use Operating System command/mail for inbound(for receiving mail) & outbound(for sending mails). At end of this post you can find few metalink notes which cover all things you require to configure Workflow Notification Mailer.
    In 11.5.10 Java Notification Mailer is available out of the box , you simply need to configure via Oracle Application Manager .
    Below metalink Notes should be enough to configure Workflow Notification Mailer & troubleshooting Mailer ..

    • At 1:21 PM, Blogger Atul Kumar said…

      Go to Oracle Application Manager to configure workflow using Java Mailer.

      wfmail.cfg is obsolete in Java mailer & now configuration is stored in database and in context file .

      We are now moved to so kindly use new site in future

      Hi Atul,

      I am unable to find Oracle Apps Workflow Table's ER diagram.

      I have read may pdfs but mostly talk about Workflow builder and only few tables.

      I just need a ER-Diagram of workflow tables.

      And psudo logic of workflow from start to finish (in terms of tables which updated first and which updated last)

      Thanks in advance
