Known Causes

Database upgrades my affect the ERP integration to MarkView.


  • The exact steps will depend on which products you have installed. Generally, you only need to worry about integration points where there is version-specific Apps integration code; there are only a few such occurrences.
  • MarkView for Oracle Applications Database Objects
    • Technically no changes are necessary, but for completeness, you can re-create the MVOA_Apps_Util package by running @packages/mvoa_apps_util_pb_11-5-10.sql.
      • The upgrade may remove some of the seed data in the Apps schema, so it may be necessary to rerun mvoa_seed_all.sql. This will ensure that the menus, form functions, and document datatypes still reside in the Apps tables.
  • MarkView Expense Management
    • Back up any existing custom package bodies.
    • Recreate custom package bodies by running the script @custom_package_bodies/mvoa_oie_custom_package_bodies_actions.sql.
    • Run the packages_views script. This will recreate ap_web_oa_custom_pkg with the correct version.
    • In addition to the patches outlined in , for OIE.I and higher, apply the post-5.5 patch mvoaoie patch
    • Redo any integration points that were upgraded, as described in Installing the MarkView System, Chapter 25, "Reintegration Steps After Upgrade to Internet Expenses."
  • MarkView Distribution Form Markup
    • No changes are necessary.
  • MarkView for Accounts Payable
    • No changes are necessary.
  • MarkView ERP Database Objects
    • Rerun the packages_views script to include mverp_user_setup_util for 11.5.10.
    • Run @@triggers/mverp_triggers_oa.sql to include the 11.5.10 version of mverp_resp_ins_upd_trigger.
  • MarkView Oracle Forms Server Components (MVOA Forms and Libraries)
    • No changes are necessary, but the upgrade may overwrite some of the integration points so that they will have to be reapplied, specificall: Changes to shipped forms (APXINWKB / SFXINWKB, APXVDMVD / SFXVDMVD, APXXXEER / SFXXXEER, FNDATTCH

      • Changes to CUSTOM.pll
      • appsweb.cfg / appsbase.htm
  • MarkView Viewer
    • If you are upgrading to Oracle 11.5.10, you may accompany this upgrade with a change in Jinitiator.
    • Changes to Jinitiator version may also require some changes to the MarkView Viewer configuration.
    • For the Web Edition Viewer, you will need to re-install the Viewer on the desktop after the new version of the Jinitiator has been installed. Be sure to select the appropriate JDK / Jinitiator version for Oracle Apps integration.
    • For the Enterprise Edition Viewer, you will need to adjust the WEBCLNT_JAVA_PLUGIN_CLASS_ID and WEBCLNT_JAVA_PLUGIN_MIME_TYPE preferences to the appropriate values for the new Jinitiator version. Please refer to the 'MarkView Preference Reference' chapter of for a full description of these preferences.

Note: There are no preference changes required if you are using the Enterprise Edition Viewer with the MarkView plugin. For R12 upgrades refer to the Related Articles section.
