In this article I explain a handy way to browse the MDS on the SOA/BPM server from JDeveloper, as well as an (as far as I know) undocumented feature to look up artifacts using a browser.
The Meta Data Services (or MDS for short) of Oracle's SOA/BPM Suite is used (more...)
In this article I explain how you can modify the JDeveloper adf-config.xml file to make it work for both Windows, as well as Linux.
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...)
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...)

Oracle Open world 2012 is already past and I’m back in Europe. Here is just a quick wrap up of my involvements at OOW 2012.
Oracle Fusion Middleware Live Application Development (UGF10464)
For the fourth time, the Live FMW Application Development show has been held. This time at Oracle Open World 2012, during the ADF EMG community event on Sunday organised by Chris Muir. I joined the team for the first time, as due (more...)
This blog post is just a short notice to point to a JEE6 based sample, which was prepared for a JavaOne session "CON5020 - Using JSR 303, Bean Validation, with the Common Data Model in SOA".
The sample, available at github, contains a list of NetBeans (maven) projects showing the (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...)
If you want to know how
to create custom XPath functions, then have a look for example at Anthony Reynold's Blog entry on the topic
. I have little to add to that excellent posting except for how to add parameters, which is done using the <param> tag as in the (more...)

Edited on October 20, 2011 regarding the location of OPatch (due to progressive insight, and some comments).
When installing Oracle BPM Suite 11g FP4 I ran into a couple of things, of which I thought I better write that down for some next time. If you are a SOA Suite (more...)
Finally, it's there, the long awaited Feature Pack 4 for the Oracle Business Process Modeling Suite.
Instructions for Customers to get this are as follows:
- This is available as a patch under the following bug id: Patch 12413651: SOA PS4 BPM FEATURES PACK
- The patch is password protected and is (more...)
One of those too stupid to be discussed items is how you can make the SOA Suite show detailed information about the payload for activities like a script activities, or what is going on inside a business rule. After all, every SOA/BPM developer is assumed to know how to set (more...)
For searching business process instances using specific attributes from the payload, the regular way to do so when using the Oracle SOA Suite is by using mapped attributes
(formerly known as flex fields).
Using mapped attributes is pretty straight-forward. You configure them in the Administration tab of the Workspace, and (more...)
In some cases you may want to manipulate the payload of a human task of an OPBM or BPEL process instance using JAXB. An example would be when you are using some other framework than ADF Faces for creating the UI, and you want to work with Java objects instead (more...)
