E1: ENV: Frequently Asked Questions About Environments, Path Codes, Data Sources and OCM (Doc ID 2211640.1)

Last updated on MAY 14, 2021

This document contains answers to some frequently asked questions on Path Codes, Data Sources, Object Configuration Manager and Environments.

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne environment is a collection of pointers indicating the location of data and JD Edwards EnterpriseOne software objects. The environment definition has information about the following:

  • Where the data can be retrieved from
  • Which is the machine that will process the logic
  • What directory contains the object which will be processed.

A path code can refer to the central development objects on the deployment server or to replicated objects on a workstation or logic server. A path code exists for each unique set of central objects. For example, you might have a set of objects reserved for software updates that you can deploy to users and a set of objects that you reserve for major enhancements.

A data source is the specific location of data or distributed processing. JD Edwards EnterpriseOne data sources can be:

  • An entire database in a specific location, regardless of the type of database
  • A specific machine in the enterprise that processes logic

The Object Configuration Manager (OCM) program (P986110) is a tool that configures distributed processing and distributed data at runtime without requiring programming. Using the Object Map table, the OCM points to the correct data, batch process, or business function for a given environment and user. The OCM is the control center for the runtime architecture. JD Edwards EnterpriseOne always uses the OCM to locate the data and platform needed to execute the distributed logic.

Every environment has an associated set of OCM mappings that indicate the distributed data and distributed processing locations for that environment.
