Oracle Integration Cloud Service – ICS – comes loaded with a rich
collection of Cloud Adapters. These adapters facilitate the integration
with SaaS applications and internet services of various natures. These
include Oracle SaaS applications (such as RightNow, Eloqua, ECommerce
Cloud, ERP Cloud, HCM Cloud), on premises ERP applications (SAP,
EBusiness Suite, Siebel) and assorted third party applications such as
SalesForce, Facebook, Google Mail and Task, LinkedIn and Evernote.
Through these adapters, interacting with (more...)
In this article, I will show a little bit more of ICS – the Integration Cloud Service. In a previous article,
I have introduced some concepts – such as Connection, Integration,
Business Identifier. I have shown how to create an integration
connecting two connections – an inbound and an outbound one (both of
In picture, that looks like this:

This blog will show how to invoke java code directly from within a Business Rules component. I didn’t manage to find this in the Oracle product documentation, which is actually a good thing. Invoking java code with business logic directly from within the Business Rules is normally bad design. The proper way to do it would be to first invoke business rules and then – depending on the outcome – invoke the (more...)
In my previous blogpost I explained how forms in PCS are created and what basic options are available. Now I would like to go deeper into the details of rules and business objects.
Let’s start with rules.
The form canvas has a row of tiny buttons in the top right. The left one switches between rules and the form itself. Click that and the canvas changes to the list of rules (if already created). A new (more...)
For who is PCS?
Oracle Process Cloud Service is a PaaS (Platform as a Service) offering which centers around designing and managing (stand alone) business processes in the cloud. The focus is once again on business analysts and other non-technical people to automate business processes. Oracle has keyed them “citizen developers”. One of the features is the option to create forms that fulfill the “human task” interaction in the BPM process.
A walkthrough for creating (more...)
In this blog posting I address four key concepts that are used in Oracle Adaptive Case Management, or ACM for short. This article is the first in a series on ACM.
Recently I was involved in an Oracle Adaptive Case Management (ACM) project. Although some people involved knew about case management in general, it turned out that not everyone immediately understood how case management works with Oracle ACM. As you may be one of them, (more...)
In this blog posting I explain some changes you need to apply to get instance migration to work for the Oracle BPM 11g Suite.
While figuring out a couple things about instance migrations I have been doing a few Bundle Patch installations lately. Up to 22.214.171.124.0 + BP4 I had issues with migration even after applying patch 18025048. I just applied BP7 and installed the latest 126.96.36.199.0 (more...)
In Oracle Business Rules one can use so-called "Bucketsets". I never liked the term as it is not in the dictionary (did you mean bucketseat?
), and never understood what is wrong with "list of values" (LoV) as that is what it is.
See for example the following bucketset that defines a list of values to be used for some status field:
Anyway, bucketsets are typically used in decision tables to define the set (more...)
Recently I was pointed to the so-called Oracle Learning Streams http://education.oracle.com/streams
which provide short presentations on all kind of topics.
While ironing my clothes on a Sunday afternoon, I watched one with the title "Leveraging OBPM vs BPEL" by David Mills. An excellent story where he explains in less than 13 minutes the high-level difference using a practical example.
One reason why I like about this stream is that it is in line (more...)
