Remote debugging on SOA 12c.

In SOA Suite 12c it is now possible to do step-by-step debugging of your composites, including introspection of your messages and variables.
This is enabled by default in the DefaultDomain of the SOA QuickStart.
But how to do so with a remote server? It is not enabled by default on seperate servers.

A moment ago I saw this tip on the community forum, which states that you have to enable it by adding the (more...)

Readings in Database Systems

Mike Stonebraker and Larry Ellison have numerous things in common. If nothing else:

  • They’re both titanic figures in the database industry.
  • They both gave me testimonials on the home page of my business website.
  • They both have been known to use the present tense when the future tense would be more accurate. :)

I mention the latter because there’s a new edition of Readings in Database Systems, aka the Red Book, available online, courtesy of (more...)

Silent install SOA/BPM 12c QuickStart

Since september 2014, SOA & BPM Suites are available. As you may know, the biggest difference in developer experience is the introduction of the QuickStarts, that installs a JDeveloper including a preconfigured IntegratedWeblogic that has the SOA and BPM components have installed. So there is no direct need for a complete Development Server to run and test your developments. By the way, in a project I do think you'll still need a Development Environment to (more...)

Transitioning to the cloud(s)

There’s a lot of talk these days about transitioning to the cloud, by IT customers and vendors alike. Of course, I have thoughts on the subject, some of which are below.

1. The economies of scale of not running your own data centers are real. That’s the kind of non-core activity almost all enterprises should outsource. Of course, those considerations taken alone argue equally for true cloud, co-location or SaaS (Software as a Service).

BPM 12c R2 (12.2.1) download

For a few weeks, BPM 12cR2 is released, next to SOA 12cR2. But if you go to the download area of BPM on OTN, you'll find that the downloads suggest Release 12c (12.1.3.0.0).

Just now on community.oracle.com, I found  an answer to the question I had quitely my self for a few weeks: where to download BPM12cR2?

I didn't check-out edelivery.oracle.com my self yet, but you (more...)

Dunkel Patterns

Just returned from Berlin, where, amongst other things, I visited restaurant called Dunkel.

Dunkel Unsicht Restaurant is where you are seated, served, and eat in total darkness (Dunkel means dark in German).

To begin with, you order from a set menu, in the light. Then, your assigned server appears, asks you to put your hands on their shoulders and to follow you downstairs into the darkness of the restaurant itself.

Into total blackness. (more...)

Issues in enterprise application software

1. I think the next decade or so will see much more change in enterprise applications than the last one. Why? Because the unresolved issues are piling up, and something has to give. I intend this post to be a starting point for a lot of interesting discussions ahead.

2. The more technical issues I’m thinking of include:

  • How will app vendors handle analytics?
  • How will app vendors handle machine-generated data?
  • How will app vendors (more...)

SOASuite 12.2.1 Available

On the eve of OOW15, I read that Oracle Fusion Middleware 12.2.1 is released, including Oracle SOASuite, but apparently excluding BPM Suite.

You can download the quickinstaller here. Although it is not explicitly stated on the download pages and in the install guide, you'll need Java 8, update 51+ to install. Which is good news actually, because although Weblogic 12c was already Java 8 certified, and SQLDeveloper 4.1 was introduced (more...)

Couchbase 4.0 and related subjects

I last wrote about Couchbase in November, 2012, around the time of Couchbase 2.0. One of the many new features I mentioned then was secondary indexing. Ravi Mayuram just checked in to tell me about Couchbase 4.0. One of the important new features he mentioned was what I think he said was Couchbase’s “first version” of secondary indexing. Obviously, I’m confused.

Now that you’re duly warned, let me remind you of aspects of (more...)

SOA BPM 12c Bundelpatches

Earlier this year I wrote about some bugs and patches on SOA & BPM suite, I experienced, and the recommended patches I extracted from that journey. A few weeks ago I found that Jan van Zoggel wrote about the latest bundlepatches on SOA and BPM 12c.

It turns out that there are now 4 Bundlepatches:

  • Bundle patch 1: Patch 19707784: SOA/BPM Bundle Patch 12.1.3.0.1
  • Bundle patch 2: Patch 20423408: SOA/BPM (more...)
