customers seek cloud solutions, partners must pivot their business to
the cloud to meet these transformational market needs. Oracle Dynamic
Hybrid Bundles are designed to help partners address those customer
requirements while driving higher profitability and growth through the
solution sale of on-premise and cloud offerings.
Make More Margin
Dynamic Hybrid Bundles offer partners substantial upfront discount
(Cloud Credits) off metered Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and
Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). Cloud Credits apply when bundles are
provides ICS (Integration Cloud Service) as a simple means for citizen
developers to do integrations in the cloud and between cloud and
on-premises. On the Oracle Fusion Middleware Partner Community Forum I
got a chance to get some hand-on experience with this product in one of
the workshops. In this blog post I will describe some of my experiences.
I’m not the target audience for this product since I am a technical
developer and (more...)
session will be delivered by Mike Muller of the Oracle A-team, with
many years of deep expertise in the Oracle Service Bus. The content
comes from the “SOA Blackbelt Training” which was previously used within
Oracle to provide deep internal and architectural understanding of
components within the (more...)
of the big challenges with adopting Cloud Services Architecture is how
to integrate the on-premise applications when the applications are
behind the firewall. A very common scenario that falls within this
pattern is cloud integration with Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS). To
address this cloud-to-ground pattern without complex firewall
configurations, DMZs, etc., Oracle offers a feature with the Integration
Cloud Service (ICS) called Connectivity Agent (additional details about
the Agent can be found under (more...)
this third article about the Connectivity Agent we deep-dive into the
details. We learn how to use the ICS Connectivity Agent in combination
with an on-premises database. For more information about the
architecture and installation of the agent I recommend to read these twoarticles first. This article continuous where the previous article about the installation ended.
Taking the Agent for a test drive
that the Connectivity Agent is installed, registered and running (more...)
what the Oracle Applications User Experience (#OAUX) team did during
Oracle OpenWorld 2016 in San Francisco in September on the Voice of User
Experience blog, or VoX, where we’ve reposted our most recent Storify collection. Here’s a short summary of the big stuff:
The OAUX Cloud Exchange,
where the OAUX team demos near-future and future concepts, was extended
to three days this year. Participants included Oracle partners,
industry analysts, private customer (more...)
program was recorded on Wednesday, September 21, 2016, during Oracle
OpenWorld in San Francisco. "During" is the operative word, since the
podcast was actually recorded in my hotel room, several blocks from
Moscone Center, where OOW16 was held. The topic was suggested by Oracle
ACE and frequent OTN contributor Arturo Viveros, who, along with other
panelists, was in town for the big Oracle event. Listen.

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...)
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 customer of mine was kind of surprised that when you throw an event in a component of a SCA composite, that the same component cannot catch that event and act upon it. This is a known limitation, for which there is a work-around, which I will discuss in this article.
The work-around is quite simple: another loosely coupled component in the same composite can listen to the event, so all you have to do (more...)
In this posting I will explain why in the Oracle BPM/SOA Suite you should not attach fault policies to synchronous services.
The other day I investigated some BPM process instance that had an unrecoverable error. It was calling a synchronous service, that on its turn was calling another synchronous service, that on its turn was calling a external, synchronous service exposed through the Oracle Service Bus. That latter call failed (due to a timeout). As (more...)
There are two key words in Business Process Management Notation (and Language) or BPMN for short that very often seemed to be missed. The first is "business" the second "management". In this posting I will discuss the significance of the first, and how you are in control of that.
In BPMN the word business does not wants to express that it is "just" about modeling business processes. The idea is also that these models should (more...)
In this article I will explain how you can enable payload validation in the Oracle SOA/BPM Suite per composite, both design and deployment time. This works for 11g as well as 12c
When developing BPM processes or SOA services it is advisable enable payload validation on the development server. The reason being that this will force you to work with more representable test data, and in some occasions help you preventing coding errors (like (more...)
Recently I wrote this posting regarding an improvement for setting the title of a flow instance in Oracle BPEL, and BPMN 12c. In this posting I will discuss two related improvements that comes with SOA/BPM Suite 12c, being that the flow instance abortion is automatically propagated from one instance to the other, as well as the flow instance title. Or more precisely, for every child instance the initiating instance is shown together with its name.
In this article I explain how to hide the actions in the drop-down in Workspace.
In some situations you may need to hide the actions that are shown in the Actions drop-down in Workspace.
One way to do so is by configuring the access that users with a specific Workspace role have for a specific task (not to be confused with a swim-lane role), by going to the task definition -> Access -> Actions. For (more...)
