This week in the BPM Adaptive Case Management workshop at the Oracle Fusion Middleware Community Forum I ran into a strange bug.
The background: earlier this week my own laptop broke down. So I had to borrow a laptop, what fortunately I could borrow from one of the presenters (thanks Guido). The thing is, though, that it runs on Ubuntu 12, so I ran my VM in VirtualBox 4.3 on Ubunty. Now actually that (more...)
The weirdest thing occurred to me yesterday. I have this OSB-project in Eclipse that is working fine and can be published to the dev-server perfectly.
However, I use a release/deployment framework that does a scripted export of the OSB-configuration-jar. It copies the osb-projects to a temp-folder and creates an configuration-jar out of it. It is based on the scripts of Edwin Biemond
, that I adapted in way that it can be included in my (more...)
Triggered by a comment on an older article I wrote a little article
yesterday on determining the instance of an object. As far as known by me at least and seemingly by Google there is no java instanceOf counterpart in Oracle Pl/Sql. In SQL Where clauses you can use the (more...)
Already four and a half year ago I wrote an article on Oracle Type inheritance and type casting. See here
. But although Object types are supported by Oracle since Oracle 8, it seems to me that there is still little familiarity on the subject.
I'm not really a Pl/Sql (more...)
Yesterday a project-colleague pointed me to a cool new feature in SOASuite Patch set 6 (18.104.22.168).
Everyone who has done deployments of SOASuite throughout different stages within a Dev., Test, Acc. & Prod. lifecycle knows the throubles that end-pointreferences causes. One improvement in SOASuite 11g was the (more...)
Regularly I create VM's for courses as a 'Virtual Course Environment'. Earlier I did an install of Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c. But now there was a request for an integrated BI Publisher install.
Having an OEM12c install, the integration with BI Publisher with OEM12c is pretty straightforward. The install guide (more...)
For my current assignment I needed to build quite complex transformations in OSB. Mainly because of my experiences I choose to do that in XSLT.
Eclipse has a quite nice XQuery mapper, but it lacks an XSLT mapper.
Since JDeveloper has a nice XSL Mapper tool, I incorporated a JDeveloper (more...)
As mentioned yesterday, I installed Oracle SOA/BPM Suite 11g PS6 yesterday. It was on Oracle Linux 6 Update 3 (still have to update to Update 4).
Today I installed the accompanying JDeveloper 22.214.171.124 on the same machine. Everything went fine, except that apparently the installer failed to (more...)
Today I installed the brand new SOA and BPM Suite 11g PS6. The last few months for me were dedicated in deepdiving WebLogic to deliver a Tuning and Troubleshooting course for two customers.
Although it was not the first time to for me to install the suite, and I already (more...)
Just a moment ago I found out that BPM Suite PS6 is released for download: http://soacommunity.wordpress.com/2013/04/01/bpm-suite-ps6-11-1-1-7-available-for-download/
In a previous blog
I also wrote about the OFMW Partner forum in Portugal, where I could play around with it.
This week and next week I have to teach a Tuning (more...)
Yesterday I did a presentation about a project I did last year, where we replaced Oracle Workflow in an Oracle Forms application by SOASuite.
Often Oracle Workflow standalone edition, is used closely integrated within an Oracle Forms/Reports application. This means that you'll run in several issues:
- How do you start (more...)
A few weeks ago I went to the Fusion Middleware Community Forum 2013
. Unfortunately I wasn't in the opportunity to write anything about it, until now.
First it was great to meet many peers in our interest-area. Not only because it was in a splendid environment:
My current project is about the revisiting of some workflows built in SoaSuite10g (Bpel, Esb).
In these workflows emails are sent at several point. Some of these mails are about errors to the administrator. But others are for customers/applicatants or end-users.
In one of these cases
I have to add (more...)
In SoaSuite 10g there is a xpath and xslt function do Domain Value Map lookups,lookupDVM. This function is based on tables in the SoaSuite repository. There is a screen in the ESB console to edit them.
In SoaSuite 11g there is a separate artefact for DVM's, and a corresponding lookupDVM (more...)
Today I was asked to support a customer with some urgent issues. To be able to help them quickly I was given access via a VMware View Client (a Citrix alike online desktopsharing solution from VMware).
From that desktop I connected to an internal desktop with a Remote Desktop session, (more...)
At my previous customer, a Dutch energy infrastructure managing company, I worked on an implementation of AS2 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AS2
) message exchanging with Oracle B2B (part of SOASuite 11g) The company needed to exchange information about energy delivery with other companies that supply and transport energy.
When you already did something with B2B11g, then you probably already know how to connect to the B2B UI, and have found out that it's not available by default.
By default the B2B UI is not targetted to a managed server. It can be done very easy in the weblogic (more...)
Recently I renamed some docTypes in B2B11g because of a typo. Last week I wanted to export the repository to put it into subversion and to be able to propagate the implementation to the test environment.
But when exporting I ran into the following exception:
MDS-00001: exception in Metadata Services (more...)
In the past I wrote an article about high availability architecture for Oracle Integration B2B10g
Currently I'm working on an AS2 implementation with Oracle B2B11g. B2B11g is now part of SOASuite11g. Although it can be seen as a gateway product, much like OSB, since it is part of SOASuite I (more...)
Did you encounter it as well? You're working wih a SOA-project within JDeveloper 11g and suddenly you see that there are componenttypes in your project (within the application navigator) that do not belong to your project. Componenttypes of mostly BPEL components that are from other projects, even in other applications (more...)
