Configuration provides setup and administrative choices using the native features of the product. Some configuration examples include:

  • Profile Options
  • User-defined fields (Flexfield)
  • Function Security Setup
  • Data Security Setup
  • and a lot more….

Personalization enables you to declaratively tailor the UI look-and-feel, layout or visibility of page content to suit a business need or a user preference. Some personalization examples include:

  • Tailor the order in which table columns are displayed.
  • Tailor a query result.
  • Tailor the color scheme of the UI.
  • Folder Forms
  • Forms Personalization
  • Oracle Application Framework (OAF)

Extensibility is about extending the functionality of an application beyond what can be done through personalization. Some extensibility examples include:

  • Add new functional flows
  • Extend or override existing business logic
  • Using Oracle Forms Developer, Oracle JDeveloper and Oracle Workflow
