PACKMAN is an essential tool for supporting your technical change management on Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, whether you are implementing EnterpriseOne for the first time or if you are upgrading to a new release.

PACKMAN can either be used manually or completely automatically thus without any user intervention. In every stage of the process CNC personnel is informed by email notifications. Instructions are created automatically and after deployment detailed reports are automatically generated and distributed.

“The PACKMAN software, it is working great.  The developers can get their projects in PY every night with no CNC effort and all we have to do for PD is change the status.  I setup a script that launches PACKMAN so that we don’t even have to log into JD Edwards to launch an unscheduled build.  It has saved a lot of hours working remote from home at night for package builds” – Brian Penney, Paul Mueller Company

How it works

In sequence PACKMAN will create the package build for the Enterprise Server(s) according to its configuration. Multiple enterprise servers per path code can be selected. The package build has now been started en is controlled by a PACKMAN driver batch. The progress of the build can be monitored using the PACKMAN application.

On a successful built the package is deployed to the enterprise server, client deployment instructions are created upon a successful server deployment. If Business Services are included then these will be automatically deployed.

After deployment a fully detailed report is created for CNC personnel, summarizing the PACKMAN process. Email notifications can be sent during every stage in the process ensuring total control.

When a new full package has been built and deployed the old update packages and the old full package can be cleaned up with the click of a single button. In this process the contents of the tables and the directory structures on the deployment server and enterprise server(s) are deleted, technical change management made easy.
