Dynamic Java Connector

A tool that enables you to create Java classes that interact with JDE business functions using the Java Connector Architecture (JCA) specification.

  • Supports real-time integration
  • Supports complex business logic
  • Supports any Java-based platform or application
  • Supports transactions and security

Z- Table Processing

The “Z tables” are transition tables in SQL/Oracle, whose sole objective is to load data into JDE. In general, this way is used for “Bulk import” of data into the JDE database.

  • Can be done using various methods, such as flat files (CSV, TXT, etc.) to import and export data between JDE and external systems.
  • In general, used for “Bulk import” of data into the JDE database.
  • Z-table integration can be used for both inbound and outbound transactions

Business Services Server (BSSV)

BSSV is a component within the JDE system that facilitates communication and integration between JD Edwards applications and external systems.

  • Supports SOAP-based and RESTful services for integration.
  • BSSV efficiently manages high volumes of transactions, ideal for enterprise-level deployments

Application Interface Services (AIS)

AIS is a component of Oracle JDE that provides a lightweight RESTful interface that allows JDE applications to run on various devices such as smartphones and tablets through REST API calls.              

  • Acts as a middleware layer, allowing external systems, mobile applications, and other software solutions to interact with JDE.

EDI (Electronic Data Interchange)

EDI is one of the integration methods with Oracle JDE. JDE has a data interface system (code 47) that acts as a staging area for moving data in and out of the application systems using EDI standard formats.

  • Supports various EDI standard formats, such as X12, EDIFACT, HL7, and others
  • Enables JDE to communicate with external systems.

Magic xpi

Magic xpi is an integration platform designed for connecting various enterprise applications, including JD Edwards, through a visual drag-and-drop interface. It has an Oracle certified connector to JDE, that can interact directly with JDE Business Services and its Dynamic Java Connector.

  • Easy to use and maintain.
  • Supports batch and real-time integration.
  • Supports multiple protocols and formats.
  • Supports cloud and on-premises. deployment
  • Visual mapping, drag and drop from source to destination.

These methods can be used separately or in combination, depending on the complexity and requirements of the integration. It’s also important to note that integration strategies should be selected and implemented in a way that suits the organization’s IT policies, security standards, and performance requirements.
