Localizations: Country Server Methodology (R96450) (Doc ID 2205125.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 19, 2021

The EnterpriseOne solution includes localizations for some countries and the methodology used is “the Plug and Play methodology”. To avoid object dependency problems we do not want to include localization objects and standard objects in the same ESU. To avoid this problem, “Tagging methodology” was created.

 Plug and Play Methodology/Tagging Methodology

The Plug and Play methodology (also called Country Server Methodology) is used to facilitate the integration of additional functionality (Country Specific, Industry Specific or Customizations) without modifying or disrupting standard software functionality or process.

  • This methodology is used to avoid dependency problems between standard and localization objects.
  • Standards and localization objects are delivered in separate ESUs. Therefore, two ESUs may be required when resolving a localization SAR.
  • Depending on their needs, the customers install:
    • Standard ESU or
    • Standard ESU and Localization ESU
  • This methodology is used ONLY after GA (delivered via ESU).

How do plug and play objects work?

  • The localization objects and standard objects all exist in the development environment.
  • The standard objects call a plug and play.
  • The plug and play calls a country server.
  • The country server calls the localization objects.
  • Localization objects and Standard objects are sent to clients in ESUs.


Country Server Methodology

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne localization development methodology uses country server exits to facilitate country-specific functionality without modifying or disrupting standard software functionality or processes.

It is not feasible from a development perspective to modify base tables and user processes every time a country has a new business practice or legal requirement. Creating country-specific functionality in isolation means that we can react to statutory and local business practices changes on an individual basis without affecting the stability of the base product.

This document provides information on the Country Server Methodology including Setup and Execution and Troubleshooting.
