EDN Debugging

| Mar 10, 2013

I have a customer asked me about how to debug EDN. This blog will show you how to debug EDN and the tools that can be used to debug EDN.

EDN comes with a useful EDN DB logging servlet to view logging information generated by the EDN component. It is only available for END-DB which is based on AQ, it will not work for EDN with JMS. The servlet uses a table called “EDN_LOG_MESSAGES” in SOA_INFRA schema. It logs the operation on “main” operation of event_queue and oaoo-queue with timestamp information.

The default URL is http://<host_name>:<port_number>/soa-infra/events/edn-db-log(more...)

RDA Health Checks for SOA By Shawn Bailey

What is a health check in RDA?
A health check evaluates something in your environment to determine whether a change needs to be considered in order to avoid a problem or optimize fuctionality. Examples of what this 'something' might be are:

  • Configuration Parameters
  • JVM Options
  • Runtime Statistics

What have we done for SOA?
In the latest release of RDA, 4.30, we have added a Rule Set for SOA called 'Oracle SOA 11g (11.1.1) Post Installation (Generic)'. This Rule Set contains 14 SOA related health checks.
These checks were all derived from common issues / solutions we see (more...)
