Loftware Connector® for Oracle®

SABR sells and distributes Loftware Connector for Oracle, for Barcode Label printing and RFID encoding integration to Oracle-Based Applications.

The Loftware Connector for Oracle establishes a high-speed 'connectivity bridge' between between Oracle-Based Applications and the Loftware Print ServerĀ®. The combination of Loftware Connector for Oracle and Loftware Print Server enables Oracle-Based applications to generate labels across large networks of printers and empowers companies to comply with current and future barcode label and RFID specifications.

Loftware Connector for Oracle

The Loftware Connector for Oracle enables Business and Information Technology Managers to:

  • Centralize control of the Oracle label printing function
  • Easily integrate Oracle-Based Applications with the label printer infrastructure
  • Improve label production throughput with no coding changes to the label originating Oracle-Based Application
  • Ensure fast and reliable label production utilizing Loftware capabilities to support load dividing, automatic failover, and automatic notification of label printing failure
  • Deliver increased labeling productivity without disrupting current business operations or retraining the existing end-users
  • Offload the resource intensive task of creating and printing labels from business-critical Oracle-Based Applications to deliver better system performance
  • Eliminate maintenance programming by keeping current with changing labeling business logic requirements by using menu-driven configuration tools

The Loftware Connector for Oracle, working with the Loftware Print Server (or multiple Loftware Print Servers), sends the right label with the right data to the right printer at the right time. This combination enables Oracle-Based Applications to generate labels across large networks of printers. With a High throughput system, this speeds the processing of label print requests via its 'High Speed' Queuing System to support label printing on a 'large to massive' scale, ranging from 100's to 1000's of printers.
Label print requests can be triggered via any defined Business Flow or Transaction within Oracle WMS or Oracle MSCA such as 'Receipt', 'Ship Confirm', 'Pick Load', etc. Label requests can also be triggered via stored procedures, database triggers, or a PL/SQL call from any Oracle-Based Application.

The Loftware Connector for Oracle also includes Filters that address all of the special business logic associated with corporate marking systems without having to change Oracle-Based Applications through additional programming or customization. The basic function of a Filter, is to find and add missing data to a request coming from a Label Print Request transaction. This feature enables businesses to:

  • Get up and running in a shorter time frame
  • Concentrate label output management and Business Logic in one place
  • Remain flexible and readily adapt to changing business requirements
  • Maintain Business Logic via configuration and not programming

From a single Label Print Request, the Loftware Connector for Oracle enables you to print multiple label formats, use multiple printer types, and automatically determine which label or labels to print and where to print them.

Loftware Connector for Oracle

 

The Loftware Connector for Oracle installs directly into the Oracle Database (in its own schema) as a stored procedure through Oracle's 'Synchronous Mode' application program interface (API). This integration is seamless with no programming effort required. The Loftware Connector for Oracle sets up all labels with associated data elements and target devices using the configuration program in Oracle Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) and Oracle Mobile Supply Chain Applications (MSCA). It also automatically updates the Oracle WMS label printing interface for printing via the Loftware Connector for Oracle (Oracle MSCA does not have a separate setup but uses Oracle WMS profiles for Label Print Mode).

 

The Loftware Connector for Oracle is readily configurable to support any Oracle-Based Application. A setup routine creates all the required database objects in the Oracle database to operate and administer the Loftware Connector for Oracle in the PL/SQL environment. In addition, related files, sample code, and documentation are installed.

 

Configuring the Loftware Connector for Oracle is made easy through the Loftware Connector Console, a browser-based application that is installed separately and serves as the menu-driven interface to all of the Loftware Connector for Oracle settings.
