BizTalk 2013 JDE Enterprise One 9.1

JDE connectivity is always “fun”.  When getting BizTalk Server 2013 happily talking with JDE 9.1 keep an eye out for the below.

  • We had issues getting the 64bit edition of JDK 8 update 32 to work with the adapter.  Consistently received missing or invalid JRE errors.  We ended up using JDK 8 update 40 32bit.
  • Check the [Event] listener port in the JDEInterop.ini file.  In our case we weren’t using the default 6012 but rather 6033.  The adapter gave us errors hitting the F tables when attempting to use the wrong port.  Be aware no matter what your send port properties say, this setting MUST be updated in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft BizTalk Adapters for Enterprise Applications\J.D. Edwards EnterpriseOne(r)\Config\JDEInterop.ini
  • We found the list of JDE 9.1 JAR files required to get the adapter working has changed from 8.12.  We targeted this BTS13 environment at an 8.12 JDE env using the JDE 8.12 JAR files, and then had to work our way through a set of errors related to missing JAR files from the send port configuration when targeting JDE 9.1 with the new 9.1 JAR files.  See below list of JAR files you will need to add to your send port.

When trying to determine if BTS13 is compatible with JDE 9.1 we came across a lot of information saying no.  The out of date BTS10 install guide which is the latest install guide at this stage also isn’t very clear on this.  See this techNet article for more info.  In short yes JDE 9.1 is supported on both BizTalk Server 2013 and BizTalk Server 2013 R2.
