E1: MOBJ: How to Configure Media Objects to Work on the HTML / Web Client with FTP and SFTP (Generally a NON-Windows Web Server) (Doc ID 2043611.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 21, 2019

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools - Version 8.98 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Before media objects are stored, they have to be setup using either Windows Networking or FTP connection.  The temporary file location on the web server is used for MOBJs when the files are being stored directly in the database (F98MODAT) or on a file server.  The media object file is uploaded from the users machine to the temp directory.  Then it is copied from the temp directory on the web server to the F98MODAT for database storage or file server.  Likewise, the same occurs when a user accesses a file.  It is copied from the F98MODAT or file server to the web server temp directory, then to the users machine.

This document is designed to supplement the Oracle JD Edwards standard documentation manuals by providing the specific requirements for configuring media objects to work on the HTML / Web client.  

There are different requirements for setting up the web client based on the type of operating system being used. Although we do not recommend other configurations, it is possible for customers to setup their media object files on a non-Windows operating system on a release with tools release 8.97 or later, only Web Client is supported.  It is up to the customer to setup this configuration and test it. Since all of our upgrade table conversions expect the media objects to be stored on the Windows E1 Deployment server, moving the media object files to the standard configuration may be a requirement during an application upgrade.

This document covers all currently available service packs / tools releases being used with application releases from Xe through EnterpriseOne 9.x for FTP configurations.
