SOA Suite 12c introduced a number of new adapters. One of them is the LDAP Adapter. In several earlier articles on this blog (for example http://technology.amis.nl/2014/08/08/oracle-soa-suite-12c-ldapadapter-tutorial/ by Maarten Smeets), we have described how to set up and configure the LDAP adapter and how to use it in conjunction with the ApacheDS open source LDAP directory. Of course, this adapter is also supported with Microsoft Active Directory and Oracle’s OID, OVD and OUD.
My colleague Maarten Smeets recently published a very good article on the first steps with the SOA Suite 12c LDAP adapter (http://technology.amis.nl/2014/08/08/oracle-soa-suite-12c-ldapadapter-tutorial). He inspired me to take my own first and next steps – and I need those for the Oracle SOA Suite 12c Handbook that I am currently writing. My very first step in this area was the installation and configuration of ApacheDS server on Linux and the ApacheDS Directory (more...)
Inspired by the work and some excellent blog articles by my colleague Maarten Smeets – and while writing about the LDAP Adapter in SOA Suite 12c for the Oracle SOA Suite 12c Handbook) I decided to give ApacheDS (LDAP Directory) a spin. This article lists the very basic steps for getting started with both the server side LDAP directory (on Linux) and the visual LDAP browser & editor on top that directory. A specific step (more...)
The Oracle Service Bus is often used for service virtualization. Endpoints are exposed on the Service Bus which proxy other services. Using such an abstraction layer can provide benefits such as (among many other things) monitoring/logging, dealing with different versions of services, throttling/error handling and result caching. In this blog I will provide a small (Java) script, which works for SOA Suite 11g and 12c, which determines exposed endpoints on the Service Bus.
A Human Task in SOA Suite can be configured to automatically escalate when the task is not taken care of for a certain period of time. This escalation implies that the task is assigned to the person (or persons) one level higher up the organizational hierarchy than the people who had gotten the task assigned originally.
In this article I will show very briefly a setup for the task definition and and the user & (more...)
It is my assumption that inbound and outbound emailing has been configured – for example for a GMail account – as described in these two articles: GMail for inbound mail in SOA Suite 12c and GMail for outbound mail in SOA Suite 12c and that test mails can be sent and received.
The steps are:
- configure an email driver for SOA Suite for outbound and inbound emails
- configure an email address (one of the inbound (more...)
In my earlier blog posting I listed the different Oracle Cloud Services. Due to the massive introduction of all cloud based solutions it is difficult to have an overview of all cloud based solutions and their roadmap for launching. I have drafted an overview of these items on the image below and listed the products and links to more information.

Editor’s note: Hey look, a new author. Here’s the first post from Raymond Xie, who joined us nearly a year ago. You may remember him from such concept demos as geo-fencing or Pebble watchface. Raymond has been busy at work and wants to share the work he did with telekinesis. Or something, you decide. Enjoy.

Cheesy title aside, the AppsLab (@theappslab) is growing again, and this time, we’re branching out into new territory.
As part of the Oracle Applications User Experience (@usableapps) team, we regularly work with interaction designers, information architects and researchers, all of whom are pivotal to ensuring that what we build is what users want.
Makes sense, right?
So, we’re joining forces with the Emerging Interactions team within OAUX to formalize a (more...)
Last week at OpenWorld, a few of our projects were featured in Steve Miranda’s (@stevenrmiranda) keynote session.
Jeremy (@jrwashley) tweeted the evidence.
Debra (@debralilley) noticed too. I wasn’t able to attend the keynote, so I found out thanks to the Usable Apps (@usableapps) Storify, which chronicled “Our OpenWorld 2014 Journey.”
And today, I finally got to see the video, produced by Friend of the (more...)
About a month ago, hackaday.com broke the news of a new Wifi chip called ESP8266 that costs about $5. This wireless system on a chip (SoC) took all the IoT heads (including me) by surprise. Until now if you wanted to integrate wifi to any DIY project you had to use more expensive solutions. To put this into perspective, my first wifi Arduino shield was about $99!
So I ordered a few of them (I (more...)
Looking Back on OpenWorld
The first wave of impressions and information from OpenWorld are rolling in. Soon the wealth of articles will follow.
For the past year at the AppsLab we have been exploring the possibilities of advanced user interactions using BLE beacons. A couple days ago, Google (unofficially) announced that one of their Chrome teams is working on what I’m calling the gBeacon. They are calling it the Physical Web (http://google.github.io/physical-web/).
This is how they describe it:
“The Physical Web is an approach to unleash the core superpower of the web: interaction on demand. People (more...)
