Link between AR and GL in Oracle Apps 11i
What does the link between artificial reality and Oracle General Ledger (GLS) in Oracle Appliance 11i?
In previous posts that I have written on AR/GL, we have been discussing how AR/GL will be integrated into Oracle Apps 11i. This is something that I believe will be very useful for both organizations and their customers.
I believe that any company that wants to address the changing needs of their customers and consumers must understand how technology is evolving. While business is all about money, technology, and results, there’s no need to fear technological change and innovation with rapid advancements; history has shown us time and again that technological disruption can lead to faster growth.
Despite the fact that AR/GL has been around for over a decade, there are still many organizations who are not well versed in this technology or its impact on business. But this topic is worth exploring because it raises questions about why companies may want to integrate AR/GL into their systems or users’ workflows. What are your thoughts? Should you integrate AR/GL into your applications? If so, what does this mean for your organization? How will it impact you in the long run?
The AR/GL integration in Oracle Apps 11i is at the very least, an interesting and potentially useful addition to our existing set of tools. The ability to create visual representations of transactions in the GL (for reporting purposes) opens a new doors that would otherwise be closed, and we are curious what else might be possible.
If you are using the GFS or BFS, you can leverage the AR/GL capabilities by creating a dedicated Oracle Apps 11i context (you can do this by installing “Oracle General Ledger” and setting up a GFS or BFS instance). However, it seems that this context is not completely reliable and only some transactions will appear there; sometimes it will pull data from other sources rather than create a direct connection to Oracle’s GFS or BFS.
We have found out that there is an issue with our GFS or BFS instance not connecting to Oracle’s databases even after it has been installed. This means we can use any other database for reporting purposes instead of Oracle’s.

Oracle’s AR and GL in Oracle Apps 11i is a way to “emulate” third-party API calls. It allows developers to use the same API calls that Oracle integrates with its own platform on the backend. While this may seem like a good way of getting around having to implement all of Oracle’s API, it isn’t without its downsides. In particular, it can make it harder to test your apps against Oracle Apps, since you don’t have access to their internal APIs.
Again, this is a small subset of the huge number of standard APIs available in Oracle Apps 11i. For example, Oracle doesn’t make any public APIs available for authentication (which is likely why they created AR and GL), they only make custom providers (which are easily mocked).
The two technologies can be used together to create a more realistic view of the financials for a business
Oracle’s 11i is the result of a collaboration between Oracle and Google, the two companies have created new ways to interact with both AR and GL in programs like Oracle Apps.
This is great news for those of us who are building AR solutions and need to know how to add them to our existing products. This post will help you understand how Oracle Apps 11i works with AR, as well as what each product does and how they can be integrated into your product.
Before proceeding, please note that this post covers both Oracle version 11i and the major enhancements in 11g (11i).
