  • Steps to Register Shell Script as a concurrent program
  • Sample Shell Script to copy the file from source to destination
  • Basic Shell Script Commands
Steps to Register Shell Script as a concurrent program
step 1:
=======
Place the <name>.prog script under the bin directory for your
applications top directory.
For example, call the script ERPS_DEMO.prog and place it under
$CUSTOM_TOP/bin

step 2:
=======
Make a symbolic link from your script to $FND_TOP/bin/fndcpesr
For example, if the script is called ERPS_DEMO.prog use this:

ln -s $FND_TOP/bin/fndcpesr ERPS_DEMO
This link should be named the same as your script without the
.prog extension.

Put the link for your script in the same directory where the
script is located.

step 3:
=======
Register the concurrent program, using an execution method of
‘Host’. Use the name of your script without the .prog extension
as the name of the executable.

For the example above:
Use ERPS_DEMO

step 4:
=======
Your script will be passed at least 4 parameters, from $1 to $4.

$1 = orauser/pwd
$2 = userid(apps)
$3 = username,
$4 = request_id

Any other parameters you define will be passed in as $5 and higher.
Make sure your script returns an exit status also.

FNDLOAD to transfer AOL Objects from one instance to other

The Generic Loader (FNDLOAD) is a concurrent program that can transfer Oracle Application entity data between database and text file. The loader reads a configuration file to determine which entity to access. In simple words FNDLOAD is used to transfer entity data from one instance/database to other. For example if you want to move a concurrent program/menu/value sets developed in DEVELOPMENT instance to PRODUCTION instance you can use this command.



Steps to Move a Concurrent program from one instance(Database) to other
  • Define your concurrent program and save it in first instance(for how to register a concurrent program 
  • Connect to your UNIX box on first instance and run the following command to download the .ldt file
    FNDLOAD apps/apps O Y DOWNLOAD $FND_TOP/patch/115/import/afcpprog.lct file_name.ldt PROGRAM APPLICATION_SHORT_NAME=”Concurrent program application short name” CONCURRENT_PROGRAM_NAME=”concurrent program short name”
  • Move the downloaded .ldf file to new instance(Use FTP)
  • Connect to your UNIX box on second instance and run the following command to upload the .ldt file
    FNDLOAD apps/apps 0 Y UPLOAD $FND_TOP/patch/115/import/afcpprog.lct file_name.ldt
Note: Make sure you are giving proper .lct file in the commands and don’t confuse with .lct and .ldt files
These following are the other entity data types that we can move with FNDLOAD
