SOA Suite 12c: Using Enterprise Scheduler Service to schedule deactivation and activation of inbound adapter bindings

The Enterprise Scheduler Service that is available in Fusion Middleware 12.1.3 supports a number of administration activities around the SOA Suite. We will look at one particular use case regarding environment management using the ESS. Suppose we have an inbound database adapter. Suppose we have created the PortalSlotRequestProcessor SOA composite that uses a database poller looking for new records in a certain table PORTAL_SLOT_ALLOCATIONS (this example comes from the Oracle SOA Suite 12c (more...)

SOA Suite 12c: Invoke Enterprise Scheduler Service from a BPEL process to submit a job request

The Fusion Middleware 12.1.3 platform contains the ESS or Enterprise Scheduler Service. This service can be used as an asynchronous, schedule based job orchestrator. It can execute jobs that are Operating System jobs, Java calls (local Java or EJB), PL/SQL calls, and Web Service calls (synchronous, asynchronous and one-way) including SOA composite, Service Bus and ADF BC web services.

Jobs and schedules can be defined from client applications through a  Java API or (more...)

SOA Suite 12c: Configuring GMail as the inbound email provider for UMS (IMAP, SSL)

In a recent article, I discussed how to configure the SOA Suite 12c for sending emails using GMail: http://technology.amis.nl/2014/08/05/setup-gmail-as-mail-provider-for-soa-suite-12c-configure-smtp-certificate-in-trust-store/. An interesting aspect of that configuration is the loading of the GMail SSL certificate into the Keystore used by WebLogic, in order for the SSL based interaction with GMail to successfully be performed. The configuration of GMail for inbound interactions requires a similar procedure for the certificate for the imap.gmail.com server.

ADF DVT: Editor for easily creating custom base map definition files (hotspot editor)

Using a custom image as the base map for the ADF DVT Thematic Map component, such as is supported as of release 12.1.3, is very interesting. Visualization is extremely powerful for conveying complex aggregated information. Using maps to associate information  with particular locations – using shape, color, size as well – is very valuable. Being able to not only use a geographical map but any image (with sensibly identifiable locations) is even better.

ADF DVT: Creating a Thematic Map using a Custom Base Map with hotspots

One of the interesting new features in ADF DVT 12.1.3 is the option to use a custom image as the base map for the Thematic Map component. This enables us to visualize information and support interaction in a wide variety of visual contexts. The custom image we use can represent a geographical layout, but it can really be anything we like. A map of the shopping mall, a picture of a mannequin, a (more...)
