In this document i will explain the advantages and disadvantages of User Hooks, and how to implement them.
1. General Introduction
API User Hooks allow users to extend the business logic of the standard business rules that are executed by APIs. This is done by allowing custom
procedures to be called at specific points in the standard APIs. For instance, a user may want to implement User Hooks for one of the following reasons:
* To extend the validation of data beyond what the standard system provides.
* To maintain data held in extra customer specific tables (not part of Oracle Applications) as it is entered.
* To send alerts when particular events happen within Oracle Human Resources Management System(HRMS.)
