SOA Messaging Reliability through JMS and Oracle Service Bus by Sebastian Lik-Keung Ma

clip_image002

The JMS Message

For consistency, the type of message we are publishing will be based on a canonical schema. Typically, you would have a JDeveloper project that stores the canonical schemas used by (more...)

WS-Addressing callback interception using Service Bus by Jeroen Ninck

clip_image002

Maarten Smeets posted a nice article describing asynchronous interaction in BPEL and BPM using WS-Addressing and correlation sets. I wanted to use Service Bus 12c to force the callback to go through a Service Bus proxy instead of going directly to the consumer. This can be useful when the target service should not have the ability to call services outsite of its trusted domain or network.

All sources can be found in my GitHub repository.

How to create a SOA 12.2.1 docker image on OracleLinux (Now Oracle Certified) by Fabio Persico

Introduction

What is docker?

Unless you’ve been living without internet access for the last two years, it would be hard not to at least heard of Docker. But, as an emerging technology not everyone has taken the time to work out what Docker is, where it fits in and how it can benefit you.
So, what exactly is Docker? Here’s what Docker themselves describe it as:

SOA Expert Series presentation available by David Shaffer & Team

clip_image002

We’ve been talking about this for a couple years now, but finally did it. The idea is to take the very popular Open World panel session called “Oracle SOA Suite Tips and Tricks from Oracle Engineering and A-team” and bring this content to a much wider audience via webinar. We tested the waters with the first webinar in Jan, 2016 and it was even more successful than we had hoped.

We are now extending this (more...)

The integration possibilities with other Oracle Fusion middleware products is the most valuable feature of the SOA Suite solution. By Andreas Chatziantoniou

Valuable Features:

The integration possibilities with other Oracle Fusion middleware products is the most valuable feature of the SOA Suite solution.

Improvements to My Organization:

I'm a contractor, so my client organizations are the ones who benefit from SOA Suite. With it, it's quite visible the number of both internal and external processes that are more integrated. Another organizational benefit is that less human intervention is required when running the suite of products in SOA.

Using eBS Adapter in Integration Cloud Service – Part 2: Configure and Test ISG REST Services by Stefan Koser

clip_image002

Introduction

Integration Cloud Service (ICS) enables connecting applications in the cloud or on-premise. It also provides an adapter for Oracle eBusiness Suite. This eBS adapter is different than the eBS adapter in SOA Suite – it does not use a database connection. Instead it uses the REST services provided by eBS as part of Integrated SOA Gateway (ISG).

This article describes the steps needed to get eBusiness Suite including ISG REST services ready – either (more...)

Enhancing ICS Mappings with Custom Java Classes by Ricardo Ferreira

clip_image002

Introduction

One of the most common tasks performed during the creation of integrations in ICS (Integration Cloud Service) is the implementation of mappings. In a nutshell, mappings are the resources that ICS uses to allow messages coming from the configured source application to be sent to the configured target application. Failure in properly defining and configuring these mappings directly impacts how integrations are going to behave while sending messages downstream.

In order to build mappings (more...)

OUGN 2016 | Help! What integration solution is best for me? By Ronald van Luttikhuizen

In this session we will explain Oracle integration solutions like ODI, SOA Suite, etc. and compare ICS, SOA CS, Oracle Service Bus and Oracle SOA Suite with each other. All (more...)

Fixing cloud integration by Andrew Bell

clip_image002

Today, most companies are still overwhelmingly on-premise. However, enterprises are turning more and more to the cloud in an effort to reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) of IT architectures.

Many hope to offload non-value adding processes and applications to the cloud, whilst others are looking to migrate fully to the cloud as part of their digital transformation journey. For SaaS applications to provide real value to businesses however, they need to integrate with (more...)
