"Provisioned Oracle Fusion Applications Home Directories" section in the Oracle
Fusion Applications Administrator's Guide.

Applications Installation Guide.

2.5 Enterprise Deployment
An enterprise deployment is an Oracle best practice based on proven Oracle
high-availability and security technologies and recommendations for Oracle Fusion
Applications. The best practices span all Oracle products across the entire technology
stack: Oracle Database, Oracle Applications, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Fusion
Applications, Oracle Collaboration Suite, Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion
Middleware Control, and Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Applications Control,
Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control, and Oracle Enterprise Manager Database
Control.

For more information about enterprise deployment for Oracle Fusion Applications, see
the Oracle Fusion Applications Customer Relationship Management Enterprise Deployment
Guide.

2.6 Security
Oracle Fusion Applications includes built-in security features. The default roles and
security policies are designed to encompass common business needs. Role definitions,
role hierarchies, data security, and segregation of duties policies can be changed or
extended to meet the security needs of the enterprise.

Oracle Fusion Applications security is based on the following concepts:

� Role-based access: uses job roles, duty roles, and abstract roles to assign access
rights to application functions and date

� Segregation of duties: separates actions, such as approving, recording, processing,
and reconciling results, to limit the potential for unintentional errors and willful
fraud

� Consistent and transparent function and data security: makes data and application
functions inaccessible to users by default, enabling access only when explicitly
granted through roles necessary to access specific data or functions

� Robust privacy protections: uses multiple levels of data privacy classification that
work with data security policies to protect sensitive data

� Native identity management and access provisioning: features Oracle Identity
Management integration through Oracle Fusion Middleware allows for creating
and managing user identities, creating and linking user accounts, managing user
access control through user role assignment, managing workflow approvals and
delegated administration

� Enforcement across tools (all the tools use the same policies) and across the
information lifecycle: uses common Oracle Fusion Applications security policies
that are consistent across enterprise information access methods

� Integration with Oracle Fusion Governance, Risk, and Compliance: provides
critical business controls to manage risk multi-regulatory compliance and controls
enforcement

Security

Understanding Key Concepts 2-7

� An extensive reference implementation: uses a predefined business processes,
roles, role memberships, entitlement, and policies that are secure as delivered

� Standard tools to extend the footprint: uses a common set of tools to manage, edit,
and expand the security features of Oracle Fusion Applications

For more information about security for Oracle Fusion Applications, see the Oracle
Fusion Applications Security Guide.

Key Management Tools and Processes 4-7

� HomeChecker, for verifying the correctness of any Oracle Fusion Applications
Oracle home directory

4.3 Implementation and Development Tools
Oracle Fusion Applications includes Oracle JDeveloper, a tool used to develop, extend,
and deploy applications. Oracle Fusion Applications also includes Oracle Fusion
Functional Setup Manager, a tool used to manage setup data and post-install tasks.

This section contains the following topics:

� Section 4.3.1, "Oracle JDeveloper"

� Section 4.3.2, "Oracle Fusion Functional Setup Manager"

4.3.1 Oracle JDeveloper
Oracle JDeveloper is the integrated development environment (IDE) used for Oracle
Fusion Applications. JDeveloper is used for building service-oriented applications
using the latest industry standards for Java, XML, web services, SQL, and SCA. It
supports the complete development lifecycle with integrated features for modeling,
coding, debugging, testing, profiling, tuning, and deploying applications.
User-friendly wizards are provided to simplify many common tasks such as
connecting to IT systems.

For more information on how to use JDeveloper for Oracle Fusion Applications, see
the Oracle Fusion Applications Developer's Guide.

For general information about JDeveloper, see the JDeveloper online help.

4.3.2 Oracle Fusion Functional Setup Manager
Oracle Fusion Functional Setup Manager provides a single user interface for
performing all tasks related to Oracle Fusion Applications setup after installation and
helps you to easily move the setup data between instances to reduce implementation
time.

Oracle Fusion Applications developers integrate Applications Core setup UI task
flows with Functional Setup Manager to make these task flows available to
administrators, implementers, and other developers, allowing them to configure
applications by creating set up data.

For more information, see the Oracle Fusion Functional Setup Manager User's Guide, the
Oracle Fusion Applications Common Implementation Guide, and the "Integrating Oracle
Fusion Middleware Extensions for Applications (Applications Core) Setup UIs" section
in the Oracle Fusion Applications Developer's Guide.
