Circuit Breaker is a new resiliency feature in 12.2.1 that helps to simplify operations and ensure system stability when downstream endpoints become unavailable.
This post is meant to be a quick introduction to this new feature so you can start testing it out.
Circuit Breaker overview
Circuit Breaker enables you to configure the system to automatically suspend upstream endpoints when a downstream system is down or unreachable from a SOA composite. This prevents (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...)

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...)
This is my last post of the year.
Strangely this was the year with less posts here in Oracle Radio. And not only that, but I started to do it in English.
Since 2007 I’ve been feeding this blog in Spanish, but for some specific posts I just decided to do it in English to get to a greater audience.
So what about to upgrade to Oracle SOA Site 12.2.1? Is the name (more...)
Ok, so there you have it: I just don’t like the Mediator. I don’t really know why. But now that it’s in the open, let’s discuss it.
I often see a pattern where a composite with a synchronous operation is implemented with a Mediator and BPEL component:
I think that in most of these cases, it would be better to either leave out the Mediator component completely. Or replace it with a BPEL component that (more...)

If you are familiar with SOA/BPM 11g purging, after you have upgraded/implemented SOA/BPM 12c, you will not be able to use most of the SQL for 11g to determine the purgeable instances. This is because SOA/BPM 12c is no longer using composite_instance table for composite instance tracking.
In SOA/BPM 12c, a common component is used to track the state associated with a business flow and report audit information. This design will reduce the (more...)

SOA Suite can sometimes be a bit slow to start. This is especially the case when there are a lot of composites to load. Customers using different versions of composites can benefit from undeploying non-default revisions of processes which do not have any running instances (see for example here). Undeployment in most cases is an asynchronous process which does not give feedback. It can partially fail without you noticing (apparently not an atomic transaction). (more...)

Hello appreciated readers, here's hoping to a fun and successful 2016 for you all!!
And for us Oracle FMW practitioners, there are some very exciting news to begin the year:
Yours truly has been following for a while the development and growth of Oracle's iPaaS platform: "Integration Cloud Service". And it's been a long wait, but at long last the ultra hyped On-Premise Agent has been released and is now available for all ICS subscriptions.
Oracle Integration Cloud Service has generated a lot of enthusiasm since the June 2015 Oracle PaaS launch by Larry Ellison. A major reason for this enthusiasm was the introduction of simplicity to cloud integration...historically a complex process only possible by integration specialists. We are very pleased to introduce to Integration Cloud Service this same level of simplicity to the integration of on-premises applications allowing for faster and easier integration of existing on-premises (more...)
If you've been following Oracle's mobile (r)evolution, we've been trending some impressive growth and mobile chops worth bragging about. The recent updates to Oracle Mobile Cloud Service, with the addition of Oracle MAX codeless development, new Location Based Services, bringing highly granular contextual apps (Manchester Airports Groupcomes to mind) and helping extend existing Forms based apps to Mobile First apps (New York MTA), we're truly helping to mobilize our (more...)
