Using Bean Validaton in SOA – JEE 6 based sample application

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...)

ADF & Event driven Integration with a BPMN process


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 (more...)

Application integration: reorganise, recycle, repurpose

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...)

Tips for Installing Oracle BPM Suite 11g FP4

OBPM 11g: Showing More Detailed Log Info

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...)

Oracle SOA/BPM – Searching and Reporting Using Process Payload

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...)

Using JAXB for Manipulating Payload of Human Tasks in SOA Suite

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...)
