					Finance System

The Finance System (Oracle Financials) different methods of access:
1.     Web Access (Needed by all users of the Finance System)

The core finance system is accessed via the internet and is used by either via http or by a
java virtual machine that is installed on the local machine. Some elements (such as
procurement) are pure HTML, and do not need any jave downloads. However for access
to the ‘core’ system (required for raising invoices etc.) the following applies:

1.1     Jinitiator:      A virtual Java machine. On a managed desktop this has to be
installed by IT staff. If the user has admin rights this will be downloaded when they
connect to the application. This is software as is needed to access the university Data
Warehouse using Discoverer Plus.

Purpose:        To enable the user to access the main finance system and also to use
                Discoverer Plus.
Used by:        Members of the University
Requires that jinitiator be installed (see document nnnnnnnnn)
