using XPath functions in the BPEL Process manager

When using XPath expressions in XSLT, and you want to use one of the following functions:

  • getProperty(propertyName as string)
  • setCompositeInstanceTitle(titleElement)
  • getComponentInstanceID()
  • getComponentName()
  • getCompositeInstanceID()
  • getCompositeName()
  • getECID()

You can use these in the Oracle Mediator XSLT mapper only, and not Oracle BPEL Process Manager. For Oracle BPEL Process Manager, you have to  use an assign activity.

Presentatie Agile schalen op basis van best practices

Presentatie Agile schalen op basis van best practices

Net als de afgelopen jaren heb ik afgelopen vrijdag een presentatie over Agile Architectuur gegeven. Kern van de presentatie dit jaar is dat bij het schalen van Agile vooral de problemen/uitdagingen die je onderweg tegenkomt aangepakt moeten worden en niet klakkeloos een framework gaat implementeren. Aan de hand van voorbeelden leg ik uit hoe we dit binnen bol.com aanpakken.

Book – Holacracy

Book – Holacracy

HolacracyIk kwam een mooie samenvatting van het boek Holacracy van Brian J. Robertson tegen. Eerder schreef ik een review over Getting Teams Done. Waarin holacracy (en de variant Spark) beschreven wordt als een methode voor teamproductiviteit, net als GTD dat is voor individuele productiviteit. Mijn ervaringen met de holacracy variant Spark beschreef ik in deze post.

De case die vaak gegeven wordt als holacracy adoptie beschreven wordt is Zappos, maar er zijn (more...)
