This article dives into the Business Rules Engine (BRE) of Oracle SOA Suite and how to create reusable Business Rules for your SOA services and BPM processes. Basic knowledge of the BRE is assumed.
In many cases, when you work with SOA or BPM, Business Rules are involved. They are important for decision logic, validations and process routing. The Business Rule Engine (BRE) that comes with Oracle SOA Suite is a logical choice for modelling (more...)
Oracle Enterprise Manager 13C has been introduced as a ‘single pane of glass’. Managing and monitoring all the assets, in or out of the public cloud.
But when creating an RDS- database instance in Amazon’s cloud, it is monitored by Cloudwatch, and it’s not possible to install a so-called Oracle Hybrid Cloud Agent to connect directly to the Oracle Management Service of OEM13c. Luckily there’s a plugin to connect with Cloudwatch. This article will cover (more...)
Long ago, back in 2004/2005 when Oracle released Oracle BPEL 10.1.2 (and its predecessor the global available release of the rebranded Collaxa product) and in 2006 with the release of the first SOASuite 10.1.3, you had a Project per BPEL process. Each project was setup around the BPEL process file. Since 11g BPEL is a component in the Software Component Architecture (SCA) and a project can contain multiple BPEL components together (more...)
Integration Cloud Service (ICS) offers an Execution Agent which you can download and install on-premises. This provides a local ICS instance. The Execution Agent is useful in several situations. When you have an ICS trial, it is valid only for a period of 30 days. After initial installation (which does require an ICS subscription), you can use the Execution Agent indefinitely. Secondly, you have full control over the Execution Agent since it is a local (more...)
In the answer on a question on community.oracle.com, I found the following great tip: http://www.soatutor.com/2014/09/clear-mds-cache.html
In 12cR2 this looks like:
1. Start System MBean Browser; In Domain, pull down the Weblogic Domain menu and choose 'System MBean Browser':
2. Browse for the Application Defined Beans:
3. Expand it and navigate to oracle.mds.lcm, choose server (AdminServer or SOAServer1)
4. Navigate to the node Application em (AdminServer) or soa-infra (SOAServer) (more...)
Another year, another amazing at the Maker Faire.
I’ve attended my fair share of Maker Faires these years, so the pyrotechnic sculptures, 3D printing masterpieces, and handmade artisan marketplaces were of no particular surprise. But somehow, every time I come around to the San Mateo fairgrounds, the Faire can’t help but be so aggressively fresh, crazy, and novel. This year, a host of new and intriguing trends kept me on my toes as I ventured through (more...)
Lately I worked on a set of scripts to automatically install Weblogic Infrastructure, SOA/BPM Suite, Service Bus, etc. Since I implemented a reworked set yesterday at another customer it might be nice to describe them here.
The scripts help in installing the software and creating the Repository. I started to create a script for creating the domain, but haven't it working yet. A good starting poing would be this blog of Edwin Biemond for the (more...)
Many hands make light (emitting diodes) work. Oracle Applications User Experience (OAUX) gets down to designing fashion technology (#fashtech) solutions in a fun maker event with a serious research and learning intent. OAUX Senior Director and resident part-time fashion blogger, Ultan “Gucci Translated” O’Broin (@ultan), reports from the Redwood City runway.

Since Oracle Enterprise Manager 12C it is possible to allocate the costs of IT resources to the people of organizations who consume them. This is done through the use of the plugin ‘Consolidation Planning and Chargeback’ .
Pete Sharman wrote an excellent blog about configuring this plugin in Enterprise Manager 12c, and it’s not my intention to copy his work, so I’d like to focus on complementary stuff regarding Oracle Enterprise Manager 13c.
In this article (more...)
Generally, I’m not in favor of consolidating important stuff onto my phone, e.g. credit cards, etc. because if I lose my phone, I’ll lose all that stuff too.
However, I’ve been waiting to try out a digital hotel key, i.e. using my phone to unlock my hotel room. Only a few hotels and hotel chains have this technology in place, and recently, I finally stayed at one that does, the Hilton San Jose.
Editor’s Note: In February while we were in Australia, I had the pleasure to meet Stuart Coggins (@ozcoggs) and Scott Newman (@lamdadsn). They told me about a sweet Anki Overdrive cars plus Oracle Cloud Services hack Stuart and some colleagues did for Pausefest 2016 in Melbourne.
Last week, Stuart sent over a more detailed video of the specifics of the build and a brief writeup of what was involved. Here (more...)
My first session with the iPad Pro
At first I was skeptical. I was perfectly happy with my iPad Air and the Pro seemed too big and too expensive. Six months later I wouldn’t dream of going back. The iPad Pro has become my primary computing device.
Does the Pro eliminate the need for a laptop or desktop? Almost, but for me not quite yet. I still need my Mac Air for NodeBox coding and (more...)
The Oracle Storage Cloud Service is an IaaS offering that underpins [almost]every other PaaS Cloud Service from Oracle. I have been using this service – largely indirectly – with DBaaS, JCS, Application Container Cloud (ACCS) and SOA CS. The initial interaction is usally using Curl against the REST APIs of the Storage Cloud Service. For one off tasks, that works fine. However, while going through development cycles with a Node.js application running on ACCS, (more...)
Hi there, remember me? Wow, April was a busy month for us, and looking ahead, it’s getting busy again.
Busy is good, and also good, is the emergence of new voices here at the ‘Lab. They’ve done a great job holding down the fort. Since my last post in late March, you’ve heard from Raymond (@yuhuaxie), Os (@vaini11a), Tawny (@iheartthannie), Ben (@goldenmean1618) and Mark (@mvilrokx).
This article is about experimenting configuration, connection and deployment from one cloud instance to the other using the basic installation, connections and features like on a local network.

Last week several of my colleagues and myself had the privilege of attending the Samsung Developers Conference (SDC) in San Francisco. It was the 5th time Samsung organized a developers conference in San Francisco but only the first time I attended, although some in our party were present previous times so I had some idea of what to expect. Here are some impressions and thoughts on the conference.
After an hour walking around, my first thought was: is (more...)
Dear manager or team leader of Oracle professionals,
If you have Oracle professionals in your team –whether they are DBAs, PL/SQL developers or Middleware & ADF specialists – in all cases, personal growth and improving knowledge are important goals for them and thereby for you as well. In this light, there is an international event in The Netherlands in the beginning of June that I would like to point out to you: a unique opportunity (more...)
VR was the big thing at the Samsung Developer Conference, and one of the points that got driven across, both in the keynotes and in other talks throughout the day, was that VR is a fundamentally new medium—something we haven’t seen since the motion picture.
Injong Rhee, the executive VP of R&D for Software and Services, laid out some of VR’s main application areas: Gaming, Sports, Travel, Education, Theme Parks, Animation, Music, and Real Estate. (more...)
