The short answer is “yes”. Connecting on-premise and cloud
applications “in minutes” is true…provided you only consider the
connectivity subset of integration and have a small number of cloud
integration touch points.
At the recent Gartner AADI conference,
230 attendees filled up the Oracle session to get a more comprehensive
answer to this question. During the session, titled “Simplifying
Integration – The Cloud & Mobile Pre-requisite”, Oracle’s Tim Hall
described cloud connectivity and then, equally importantly, the other
essential and sometimes overlooked aspects of integration required to
ensure a long term application and service integration strategy. To
understand the challenges (more...)
At my previous customer, a Dutch energy infrastructure managing company, I worked on an implementation of AS2 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AS2)
message exchanging with Oracle B2B (part of SOASuite 11g) The company
needed to exchange information about energy delivery with other
companies that supply and transport energy (in this case natural gas).
there are many companies in the Netherlands that supply and transport
gas, we needed to enter about 80 tradingpartners (TP's), that were very
similar in message-exchange capabilities. Instead of entering those 80
TP’s in Oracle B2B by hand, which is a lot of error-prone work, (more...)
Mediator supports three modes for instance tracking by changing the audit level in Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control-Mediator Properties
When Mediator receives a massage, it creates a mediator instance, then one or more case instance will be created depends on the number of routing rule in the Mediator Case (more...)
- Off - No instance tracking for successfully completed instances and faulted instances are created even in this mode.
- Production - Instance tracking is on for all the instances and payloads are not captured.
- Development - Instance tracking is on for all the instances and payloads are also captured.
In Februray 2013 the Oracle Fusion Middleware Community Forum 2013 will take place in Faro, Portugal!
The OFM Partner Community Forum is a wonderful opportunity to:

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

Almost a year ago I started to think about writing a cookbook for the Oracle Service Bus (OSB). I first discussed it with Mischa Kölliker, a colleague at Trivadis and he was happy to join the team. Next I have used the Oracle SOA and E2.0 Partner Community Forum (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...)
