OSB 12c – Database Polling using DB adapter by Vivek Garg

clip_image001Oracle introduced couple of new features in 12c version which is recently launched. For OSB, the major shift that we saw in 12c is that now we can use Jdeveloper to do the development which we use to do through OEPE (Eclipse). With that change, we can leverage the existing technology adapter in OSB as well which we use to have in SOA. In OSB 11g version, in case of Database interaction, we use to (more...)

Automated Unittesting of XQueries in Oracle OSB by Pascal Brokmeier

clip_image002In order to support a more agile project environment, OPITZ CONSULTING developed a Java/JUnit based SOA Unit Testing Framework. Among others, the framework was capable of using the Oracle libraries to run XQuery tests locally and verify their correctness. Over the course of time, Oracle released 12c and with it, changed its xquery files. A new extension (.xqy instead of .xq) was introduced and with it additional syntax. Oracle added a(:: OracleAnnotationVersion "1. (more...)

HCM Atom Feed Subscriber using SOA Cloud Service by Jack Desai

clip_image002Introduction

HCM Atom feeds provide notifications of Oracle Fusion Human Capital Management (HCM) events and are tightly integrated with REST services. When an event occurs in Oracle Fusion HCM, the corresponding Atom feed is delivered automatically to the Atom server. The feed contains details of the REST resource on which the event occurred. Subscribers who consume these Atom feeds use the REST resources to retrieve additional information about the resource.

Deploying to the SOA Cloud Service by Greg Draheim Overview

clip_image001On Monday night we obtained access to the SOA Cloud Service here at Flexagon, where we hope to use it for on-demand capacity.  One of our goals with FlexDeploy is to make it easy to move components from one environment or instance to another, enabling a true “lift-and-shift” into the cloud.  Since the SOA Cloud Service is built on top of the same underlying Oracle infrastructure, configuring it as a FlexDeploy target is (more...)

Digital Innovation Demands Hybrid Integration by Carol Hildebrand

clip_image002I thought cloud computing would do away with acronym-laden technologies such as service-oriented architecture (SOA). Can’t you just sign up for applications run in a public cloud?

You can, but what happens when you want to integrate that shiny new cloud app with your existing applications and data? That integration has its own term—hybrid cloud—and for most enterprises, it’s the new norm. More than 65% of enterprise IT organizations will commit to hybrid cloud technologies (more...)

SOA 12.2.1 New Feature – End to End JSON and Javascript Example by Krishna Hanumantharao

clip_image002SOA 12.2.1 provides support for end-to-end JSON and Javascript. We don’t have do internal mapping between XML and JSON as in 12.1.3.

As part of this post, let us implement a simple REST service to demonstrate this new feature – End to End JSON with Javascript.

Let us create a very simple SOA Composite which exposes a JSON based REST interface, manipulates the values using Javascript and calls an external JSON (more...)

Poll a Microsoft Exchange mailbox from OSB using DavMail

The Oracle Service Bus has built in features to poll an IMAP of POP3 mail account. There are loads of excellent blog posts that exactly describe how to do it. However, when the mail server happens to be a Microsoft Exchange server, things become shady. Exchange’s IMAP implementation tends to be not really that compatible, and the server log will fill up with stacktraces such as:

javax.mail.MessagingException: Connect failed;
  nested exception is:

Microservices, a different SOA approach

What are microservices?

Have you heard of Microservices yet? First time I heard the word I had strong associations with a new appliation for bacterial life in food processing. Maybe my background in biochemistry got the better of me.

Actually, the Microservices Architecture (MSA) is a new sprout on the ever-growing tree of Service-Oriented Architecture concepts. The definition sounds vaguely familiar: A particular method of designing (usually complex) enterprise software applications as suites of small, independent (more...)

Oracle Fusion Middleware Forum 2016 in Valencia

The event coinciding with the annual Las Fallas festival also helped with that last part :-)

Oracle SOA/BPM: Payload Validation per Composite

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...)

Oracle SOA/BPM 12c: Propagation of Flow Instance Title and Instance Abortion

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.
