Error Resilient Adapters – SOA 12.2.1 Resiliency Feature by Kevin King

clip_image001New to SOA 12.2.1 is the concept of Resiliency.  Oracle has introduced functionality that shuts down adapters when their composite failure meets a certain threshold. In effect, an error circuit breaker!  This is extremely helpful to prevent filling up the error hospital with an abundance of errors.  When suspended, the failed composite will retry the composite at a defined interval in an attempt to un-suspend the service adapter.  The (more...)

clip_image002Read large XML files in chunks

Introduction

At my current project, XML files are uploaded by the end-user to be processed in the Oracle SOA Suite. The XML files contain information about employers and their employees. Because an employer can have hundreds and even thousands of employees, these XML files can be quite large.
