Oracle released Adaptive Case Management (ACM) in 2013 as part of the
BPM stack. One of the functionality we needed in a project recently,
was the handling of deadlines in the context of a case. There is
(currently) no out-of-the-box solution to, for example, escalate or
reassign a case when a specific deadline has expired. In this blog we
describe how this functionality can be created with the out-of-the-box
functionality of Oracle Case Management.
Oracle has just released BPM 184.108.40.206 Bundle Patch 3 which adds the
out of the box web interface for Advanced Case Management and REST APIs
for working with BPM.
The patch is available from Oracle Support, it is patch number 18072286.
The Case Management interface looks a bit like this:
And here is an example of using the REST API. You can call the REST URL (GET) http://yourserver:port/bpm/services/rest/application.wadl to get (more...)

I’ve been really busy lately doing a lot of stuff, and most of the time if I’m doing some intensive research on a topic I would just put them all in my braindump (wiki) so if you’ve been following this blog might as well subscribe on my wiki RSS because there are just a bunch of bits of research going-on (see this mindmap) and what usually happens is I put them all together to make an awesome presentation/white paper.
So this 2013.. I’ll be presenting at RMOUG, IOUG Collaborate, and KSCOPE 2013
If you’ll be at RMOUG next (more...)

It’s been a long time since my last blog and ever since I joined Enkitec I’ve been busy immersing myself in Exadata stuff. So most of the time I’m just posting my brain dumps on my wiki although I know there’s a lot of blog worthy scenarios and projects that I have worked on just like last week when we did an Exadata Half Rack X2-2 Split Configuration from the factory image without the use of Oracle’s ACS. We did all of the pre-config and config tasks like the onecommand, patched the database to 220.127.116.11 BP8, patched (more...)
