New in SOA Suite 12c and AIAFP/OER Backward Compatibility Table by Luis Augusto Weir

Finally Oracle SOA Suite 12cR1 (12.1.3.0.0) is out (http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/pressrelease/soa-suite-12c-062614).Having implemented all versions of SOA Suite (10.1.3.1-5, 11.1.1.1-7) I am particularly more exited about this new release as I was when its predecessors were launched. And this is because unlike the previous releases, these versions is releases in the middle of major trends such as cloud computing, mobile integration, Internet of Thins, Machine to Machine, are starting to become main-stream and I see SOA Suite 12c as a fundamental building block to supporting all of these new trends!
Listing below some of the new features of Oracle SOA 12c that I am more exited about:

  • Enhanced cloud integration with cloud adapters
  • Improved mobile & IoT support with REST/JSON adapters
  • Seamless OEP integration (very useful for EDA’s or Big Data integration support)
  • Improved user experience and productivity by:
    • Finally having OSB IDE now fully supported by JDeveloper
    • New “template” feature which allows developer to create blueprints of pre-built SOA/OSB composites/services
    • “Composite like” development of OSB services
    • Completely new ADF based OSB console
  • Improved support for large/small documents transfer by incorporating the Oracle Managed File Transfers
  • Backward compatibility with AIA FP with the use of SOA Core Extensions (http://docs.oracle.com/middleware/1213/core/INSOA/planning.htm#INSOA498)
  • As per my understanding, OER harvester for SOA 12c assets will be available as part of the release of OER 12c (12.1.3) which will come out soon

Is about the last point two points  (AIA/OER) that I want to talk a bit more, specially because both of them are governance related features.
Although 12c introduces many features which will make it easier to govern a SOA project, if you are using AIA or OER in 11g or if you are about to start a 11g project, you must take note of the following:

Using the clone ability to duplicate a Service Bus 12c project by Jan van Zoggel

It’s quite common in a service oriented landscape that a newer version of a service is required. For 01instance due to new functionality for 1 service consumer which brakes the contract for the other consumers.
JDeveloper 12c has a cool feature helping us to clone a Service Bus project. Right-click on the project and select Service Bus -> Clone
Determine the name of your clone target, for instance a version 1.1 of your current project: Read the complete article here.

Getting started with Oracle Service Bus 12c: importing 11g sources by Laurens van der Starre

Oracle has finally announced 12c, so now everybody can get their hands on it. One of the new features is that Oracle Service Bus development is integrated into Oracle jDeveloper Studio.Export from OEPE
One way to get started quickly is by simply importing your 11g service bus sources into 12c.
First export your 11g sources, either from the Servicebus Console or Eclipse (OEPE):
Then, this sbconfig.jar is easily imported into the new Oracle jDeveloper Studio 12c (as expected):

The wizard flow is basically the same as importing resources into Eclipse in 11g: Read the complete article here.

Installing Oracle SOA Suite 12.1.3 for developers by Jan van Zoggel

This blogpost quickly describes the usage of the Oracle SOA Suite 12.1.3 Quick Start Installer for developers.07
After download and extracting the fmw_12.1.3.0.0_soaqs_Disk1_1of1.zip file from the Oracle website you will find 2 JAR files in the archive.

  • 18-06-2014 22:39 2.060.922.907 fmw_12.1.3.0.0_soa_quickstart.jar
  • 18-06-2014 22:38 1.125.261.418 fmw_12.1.3.0.0_soa_quickstart2.jar

Funny detail, both JAR files are dated 18-06 so it seems the package was ready a week before the big release on 26-06-2014

On Windows make sure you run the JAR with Administrator priviles, if you don’t you will get the following error message: Read the complete article here.

Java Cloud Service Integration to REST Service By Jani Rautiainen

Service (JCS) provides a platform to develop and deploy business applications in the cloud. In Fusion Applications Cloud deployments customers do not have the option to deploy custom applications developed with JDeveloper to ensure the integrity and supportability of the hosted application service. Instead the custom applications can be deployed to the JCS and integrated to the Fusion Application Cloud instance.

This series of articles will go through the features of JCS, provide end-to-end examples on how to develop and deploy applications on JCS and how to integrate them with the Fusion Applications instance.
In this article a custom application integrating with REST service will be implemented. We will use REST services provided by Taleo as an example; however the same approach will work with any REST service. In this example the data from the REST service is used to populate a dynamic table.
Pre-requisites
Access to Cloud instance

In order to deploy the application access to a JCS instance is needed, a free trial JCS instance can be obtained from Oracle Cloud site. To register you will need a credit card even if the credit card will not be charged. To register simply click "Try it" and choose the "Java" option. The confirmation email will contain the connection details. See this video for example of the registration.
Once the request is processed you will be assigned 2 service instances; Java and Database. Applications deployed to the JCS must use Oracle Database Cloud Service as their underlying database. So when JCS instance is created a database instance is associated with it using a JDBC data source.
The cloud services can be monitored and managed through the web UI. For details refer to Getting Started with Oracle Cloud.

JDeveloper

JDeveloper contains Cloud specific features related to e.g. connection and deployment. To use these features download the JDeveloper from JDeveloper download site by clicking the "Download JDeveloper 11.1.1.7.1 for ADF deployment on Oracle Cloud" link, this version of JDeveloper will have the JCS integration features that will be used in this article. For versions that do not include the Cloud integration features the Oracle Java Cloud Service SDK or the JCS Java Console can be used for deployment.
For details on installing and configuring the JDeveloper refer to the installation guide
For details on SDK refer to Using the Command-Line Interface to Monitor Oracle Java Cloud Service and Using the Command-Line Interface to Manage Oracle Java Cloud Service.

SOA Suite Scalability (Part 1 of 3) by Vivek Ahuja

Scalability means different things to different people. It’s like a group of blindfolded people touching an elephant on different sides. Each person will have their own explanation and individual experience. Similarly, in the Oracle SOA Suite world, expansion and scalability of an Oracle SOA Suite environment means different things for everyone. For Administrators, it’s about adding more managed and admin servers to the existing Oracle SOA environment. For SOA Developers, it means adding more services and BPEL processes in the existing service repository. For IT Management, it is about how they can expand their initial Oracle SOA footprint to add more systems, attain further ROI and truly expand to a service oriented architecture framework for their enterprise.
From an Oracle SOA Suite middleware perspective, a detailed analysis of your current environment should be done. Ask yourself some of the following, when planning for Oracle SOA Suite scalability and expansion:

  • How much additional traffic can my current Oracle SOA Suite instance handle?
  • How easy is it to add more storage capacity?
  • How many more transactions can be processed?

In this series of 3 blog posts, I will focus on a few different components from service design, infrastructure setup and management/governance, which can be used as reference when you are considering scaling out your Oracle SOA Suite environment. Read the complete article here.
