FND_GLOBAL and FND_PROFILE: Import List of System Global values

By | December 24, 2014 | 22,767 views | Category: AOL and SYSADMIN Oracle Apps Basics Tags: ,

We can find values of System global values using FND_PROFILE and FND_GLOBAL

FND_PROFILE

To manipulate values stored in client and server user profile caches.Any changes you make to profile option values using these routines affect only the run-time environment. The effect of these settings end when the program ends, because the database session (which holds the profile cache) is terminated.

FND_GLOBAL

The server-side package FND_GLOBAL returns the values of system globals, such as the login/signon or “session” type of values. You should not use FND_GLOBAL routines in your forms (that is on the client side). On the client side, most of the procedures in the FND_GLOBAL package are replaced by a user profile option with the same (or a similar) name. You should use FND_PROFILE routines in your forms instead.

Where do we use FND_GLOBAL and FND_PROFILE?

We can use them any where in PL/SQL to get values dynamically as per the session. In Forms we can use only FND_GLOBAL not FND_PROFILE.

Initializing the Environment

   l_user_id       := fnd_global.user_id;
   l_resp_id       := fnd_global.resp_id;  
   l_resp_appl_id  := fnd_global.resp_appl_id;   
 
   fnd_global.APPS_INITIALIZE(l_user_id,l_resp_id, l_resp_appl_id);
