More chaos as an OWSM policy by Jeroen Ninck Blok


imageErrors & failures

So it is very easy to implement a happy flow. However handling errors, rolling back transactions and recovering from errors and failures can be quite challenging. It is not possible to find all the possibilities during development or design. Some errors or failures will only occur when very rare circumstances come into play together. Then all the parts of the application either will handle the error and will ensure that no data (more...)

SOA Suite Code Quality: SonarQube Quality Gates, XML Plugin and custom XPath rules by Maarten Smeets

SonarQube is a popular tool to check and visualize code quality. An XML Plugin is available for SonarQube which allows you to define custom XPath rules. At the end of this post I will shortly describe (more...)

Oracle Weblogic: Tackling Class Loading Issues for SOA Infra

This blog article discusses how to address class loading issues with the Oracle SOA Infra. It's prime "raison d'etre" being a memory dump of something I don't do often, but may spend significant time in finding out how to do it again.

Some time ago I lost valuable time because some library being deployed twice, once in the wrong place ([SOA_HOME]/lib folder) and once in the right place ([SOA_HOME]/soa/modules/oracle.soa.ext_11.1.1). In this (more...)

Oracle BPM: Hiding Faults from BPM? Don’t use Service Activity!

In the following I explain how you can hide faults from BPM by not using (synchronous) Service activities, but (asynchronous) Send/Receive activities instead.

When calling services from a BPM process, you should think about where you want faults to show up and to be handled. This is specifically of interest when you have some integration layer between your BPM processes and external services that you call to abstract the external services from the BPM process. (more...)

Publishing Oracle SOA Maven plugin by Maarten Tijhof

image


When setting up a continuous integration solution for Oracle SOA Suite code, it is best to work with mavenized projects, and thus rely on Oracle-provided maven plugins to do the tough job of compiling and deploying artifacts.

This way of working has been introduced by Oracle in the 12c range of products. There are no Maven plugins available for 11g Oracle products.
This post describes how to set up the plugin in a Binary Repository (more...)

Oracle SOA Suite: Find that composite instance!

When executing BPM or BPEL processes, they are usually executed in the context of a specific entity. Sometimes you want to find instances involved with a specific entity. There are different ways to make this easy. You can for example use composite instance titles or sensors and set them to a unique identifier for your entity. If they have not been used, you can check the audit trail. However, manually checking the audit trail, especially (more...)

An Introduction to Oracle Stream Analytics by Robin Moffatt

Oracle Stream Analytics (OSA) is a graphical tool that provides “Business Insight into Fast Data”. In layman terms, that translates into an intuitive web-based interface for exploring, analysing, and manipulating streaming data sources in realtime. These sources can include REST, JMS queues, as well as Kafka. The inclusion of Kafka opens OSA up to integration with many new-build data pipelines that use this as a backbone technology.

Previously known as Oracle Stream Explorer, it is (more...)
