We are migrating to JDE OneWorld Xe. What might be considered the minimum core courses to take following the overview of OW Xe?
First, OneWorld is much different than World, obviously there is a whole client/server structure. Programmers need OneWorld Overview Xe (as does
almost anyone on the cutover project team to take training) and System Fundamentals Xe.
C is rarely required in OneWorld programming, less than 95% of the time. This was my gut feel and is backed up by three of my programmers.
Development Tools 1 Xe is important because of the obvious overview to development tools, forms, forms design aid and OMW, essentially project based code control. This also gives an introduction to Event Rules.
Development Tools 2 is more detailed programming of Event Rules. Essentially Event Rules allow you to create business logic. From the JDE documentation:
Use Event Rules Design to create business logic for an application. For example, create event rules that:
Perform a mathematical calculation
Pass data from a field on a form to a field on another form
Count grid rows that are populated with data
Interconnect two forms
Hide or display a control using a system function
Evaluate If/While and Else conditions
Assign a value or expression to a field
Create variables or programmer_defined fields at runtime
Perform a batch process upon completion of an interactive application
Process table input and output, data validations, and record retrieval
Your technical staff should likely be able to learn ERW (Enterprise Report
Writer, now a single reporting tool in OneWorld) but should learn it
on its own. The class is Enterprise Report Writing Xe.
You’d likely want to send someone (not necessarily all programmers) to Design Batch Applications Xe and J.D. Edwards OneWorld Scripting Tool Xe. We’ve found having someone at Table Conversions Xe helps during conversions and interfaces. You may be able to learn the table conversion tool on your own.
If you are going to access the data from other applications, use XPi, etc. there is additional training.
