Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 64-bit Statement of Direction

To ensure that JD Edwards customers have an effective and supportable technology platform that meets business demands for today and the future, JD Edwards product development continuously evaluates and analyzes the JD Edward customer base, the overall technology market, and platform technology trends. Being mission-critical enterprise software, it is imperative that the JD Edwards Tools Foundation aligns to the overall IT industry for infrastructure, operating platform, and standards-based administration. By aligning with the broader IT industry, JD Edwards customers can adopt existing and future technologies to address business requirements and opportunities without disrupting business processes.

One important trend in the IT industry that has been unfolding over the past several years is the shift from 32-bit to 64-bit computing. Over many years, the industry has steadily shifted to adopt 64-bit computing, including computing hardware, cloud infrastructure, operating systems, and key platform components such as databases, Java and web middleware. Likewise, in alignment with this industry trend, the JD Edwards platform has been adopting 64-bit computing, first with certification on 64-bit hardware and operating systems, then with certification with 64-bit databases and middleware. Throughout this period, the JD Edwards platform strategy has intentionally been to provide customers with a gradual path to aligning with the industry movement to 64-bit computing without disrupting critical business processes.

With Tools 9.2.3 and 9.2.4, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Foundation and application modules have been delivered to be backwards compatible for both 64-bit and 32-bit processing, allowing customers and partners a transition period toward the final aim of a complete 64-bit platform.

As a fulfillment of this strategy, JD Edwards will next transition the JD Edwards Tools Foundation compatibility for 32-bit into Sustaining Support:

• Beginning with JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools 9.2 Update 5 (9.2.5), Oracle will cease delivery of a 32-bit JD Edwards Tools Foundation for Oracle Solaris and HP-UX.
• JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools 9.2 Update 5 (9.2.5) will be the final Tools Foundation release that will be delivered as a 32-bit compiled foundation for Oracle Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Microsoft Windows, IBM i on Power Systems, and IBM AIX.

Future JD Edwards Tools Foundation releases will not include 32-bit components and will not be certified with databases drivers, Java, and other required components. Customers who have not yet made the transition to the 64-bit JD Edwards Tools Foundation should make immediate plans to do so.
