Sorry, we've been closed down
It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you that jderef.com can no longer exist, having recently been served legal notice from Oracle regarding information copyright infringements relating to their product schemas. This is a bitter blow, not only for me personally, (having invested many hours creating this shared resource) but mostly for the users like you, who have started to depend on the presence of this resource, to use and enhance JDE and it's satellite products - to further your knowledge and insight into Oracles flagship ERP products.
Personally, I'm of the opinion that this is a rather narrow sighted view adopted by Oracles Product Team given that;
- it's supporting their product
- anyone with access to JDE will technically be able to obtain this information anyway, albeit in a far less convenient and expedient fashion
- any competitors will have long since already obtained this information
But as a private individual based in the UK - I have no choice but to concede - I don't fancy going up against charges from Oracle's legal teams. It was only a matter of time before my little website got the attention of Oracle - but this was not the response I was hoping for.
If you spread the word, make a little noise towards the "Legal Director/Managing Counsel (Law Practice) at Oracle Corporation" (Google it) - they may see how valuable this resource was for their users
