In our middleware solutions (Oracle SOA Suite) we use a lot of xsl transformations.
Part of these transformations use database backend systems to do lookups for transforming internal values to external values (which can then be communicated to the customers).
In the Oracle SOA Suite you can create custom xsl function and store the jar in the domain/lib folder and then you will be able to use it in the xsl transformations.
We use Altova (more...)
Today when trying different settings with Basic Authentication and SOA Suite, I wanted to from the embedded OWSM Policy Repository of JDeveloper to the one stored on the application server. In JDeveloper you can do that through preferences (Tools | Preferences). See this blog for more details.
Click on the App Server Connection option and choose an existing connection through the Connections drop-down or add a new one by clicking New.

Knowledge-driven processes are typically unpredictable in their execution. Experts working on them decide what’s the next best action to take. This is in contrast to traditional BPM, in which all possible paths of a process are predetermined and modeled into the process. Adaptive Case management is a way to control and implement these unstructured processes.
When I run the application,
If I (more...)
The Meta Data Services (or MDS for short) of Oracle's SOA/BPM Suite is used (more...)
If in a JDeveloper application you point to artifacts in a file based MDS residing in a Windows folder for example "d:\projects\MDS", then JDeveloper will (more...)
As the title says, this is a “Cookbook” containing specific recipes for handling specific tasks. Most of the tasks are development tasks faces by a SOA developer with a few that are more relevant to a SOA administrator.
The 67 recipes cover many components and technologies used in the very (more...)
First two chapters of “Industrial SOA” articles series have been published both on OTN and Service Technology Magazine
Industrial SOA is a 14-part article series focused on service orientation, written collaboratively by a group of recognized experts and community leaders in service oriented architecture. I’m really happy and proud to be part of that group.
SOA and service-orientation have laid the foundation for a variety of emergent service technology innovations, while the original building blocks of SOA and service-orientation continue to evolve by embracing fundamental service technologies, concepts (more...)
The usecase for my sample application is:
A standalone application exists to create/update 'Departments'. Originally, it was not intended to be part of an automated process (BPEL or BPMN) but now business decided that their process for the creation of a department is actually more than just data entry in the standalone application. It also now involves an approval.
1. Every interaction with a software application in a business environment is part (more...)
The last UKOUG Development SIG focused on Forms. Its theme was Forms in the 21st Century: modernise, integrate, migrate? I think we covered modernisation and migration very well. But even in a packed day we couldn't cover everything, and I fear integration was not done full justice.
It wasn't planned this way, but it so happens the upcoming UKOUG Development SIG is all about Application Integraton and SOA. Integration is a topic which is in everybody's baliwick. The business people want to get the best value from their existing IT investments. The architects need to understand the interfaces bewteen the (more...)
I’m just back from the ODTUG Kscope11 conference in Long Beach, where I presented my regular tools overview presentation, a WebCenter session, an enterprise ADF development session and an ADF tuning session as well as various panels.
One thing I noticed very clearly is that almost all the non-Oracle presenters (more...)
