EBS Object Types - Oracle Application Framework (OAF) JAVA

A framework for application development within E-Business Suite. The framework is also available for personalizations, customizations and custom-application development.

Object Type Identification

  • If a file does not qualify as Java Stored Procedure, but ends in .java, .class, .xml, .zip, .ear, or .jar, it is considered OAF Java type.
  • If file with .xml extension is in webui folder then it is considered MDS file

File Extensions 

.javaJava programming language source file containing Java classes.
.classCompiled Java class
.xmlExtensible Markup Language file format used to create common information formats and share both the format and the data using standard ASCII text.
.zipzip file
.earEnterprise Application Archive file
.jarJava Archive file.

Sample Build Commands 

N/A - Build commands not supported for this type.

Sample Deploy Commands 

Java - copy and compile
cp "$SOURCE_FILE" "$JAVA_TOP/xxt/oracle/apps/ak/xxperson/webui/";
javac -Xlint:none -classpath $CLASSPATH "$JAVA_TOP/xxt/oracle/apps/ak/xxperson/webui/xxPersonMainCO.java";
Class, XML - copy only
cp "$SOURCE_FILE" "$JAVA_TOP/xxt/oracle/apps/ak/xxperson/schema/server/";


  • All OAF Java related files must be source controlled under a directory structure matching the Java package structure. This is a requirement to ensure the generated deploy commands copy them to the correct location under the $JAVA_TOP.  If this requirement is not met, you will need to modify each of the target location paths and re-evaluate the commands or override the Target Location attribute. See example below where xxPersonDetailsEOImpl.java file has package name xxt.oracle.apps.ak.xxperson.schema.server and is placed in xxt/oracle/apps/ak/xxperson/schema/server under java folder.
