A First Glance at Oracle Stream Explorer 12c by Arturo Viveros

 

clip_image002The brand new Oracle Stream Explorer 12c has been released today. The idea behind this product, which gives it a lot of relevance, is to bring simplicity, usability and enterprise readiness to Event Processing.
We have talked before about Industrial SOA, and the impact that such concepts as: IoT, Social Media, Mobile, Fast Data bring to the table. With this in mind, we have to acknowledge that enterprises nowadays, constantly find themselves dealing with huge, endless amounts of data in motion.
Oracle’s pitch in this sense, with Oracle SX, is to put this Real Time Streaming Intelligence in the hands of Business Users and Integrators, who can instantly determine the business value of the information and its relevance as business opportunities and threats.
So let’s take a look at the product istself:

As you can see, Oracle SX looks really cool!!, and the first thing we must say in this regard, is that the product’s user interface has been entirely built using Alta UI. Hence we are practically guaranteed a very favorable user experience which is not only nice, but will also help us position the tool in our clients.
Functionality-wise, SX abstracts event processing capabilities to a degree in which the user requires no knowledge whatsoever of Real Time Event Driven Architectures, Continuous Query Language (CQL), Java Event Server or the semantics of Event Stream Processing Application Models.
Basically, Stream Explorer introduces three main concepts that we must understand in order to configure the scenarios we want: Read the complete article here.

Quick Introduction to Oracle Stream Explorer Part Two– Business User friendly processing of real time events (enrichment, calculation) by Lucas Jellema

 

clip_image002Very recently, Oracle released the Oracle Stream Explorer product, available from OTN. With Oracle Stream Explorer, business users and citizen developers as well as hard core developers can create explorations on top of live streaming data to filter, enrich, aggregate, inspect them and detect patterns. Stream Explorer provides a business user friendly browser based user interface in which streams are configured, explorations are composed, enrichment is set up and publication to external consumers is defined. Note that Stream Explorer is built on top of Oracle Event Processor – any Stream Explorer exploration is in fact an OEP application. It can be exported as such and refined in JDeveloper. As such, Stream Explorer is also a great way to get going with OEP.

In a previous article, I introduced the very first steps with Stream Explorer. In this article, I set up a stream of events that report people entering or leaving the rooms of a small conference event. The use case is: we are organizing a small conference. In three rooms, sessions take place simultaneously. Our attendees are free to decide which session to attend. We would like to know at virtually any moment how many people are in each room. We have set up simple detectors at the doors of the rooms that produce a signal whenever someone enters or leaves the room. This signal consists of the room identifier (1,2 or 3) and an IN/OUT flag (values +1 or -1). Read the complete article here.

Quick Introduction to Oracle Stream Explorer – Business User friendly processing of real time events by Lucas Jellema

 

clip_image002The new Oracle Stream Explorer provides us with a [business]user friendly facility to process real time events. Through visually appealing and functionally intuitive web wizards, Stream Explorer has us construct explorations that consume events from streams, process these events through filtering, aggregation, pattern matching and enriching and deliver these events to downstream destinations.

Using Stream Explorer, we can tap into streams of events – frequently JMS messages and alternatively HTTP PUB/SUB, SOA Suite EDN events or REST calls. For testing and demo purposes, we can use an CSV file as the source for a stream exploration. A stream is fed into one or more explorations that do the interpretation and processing of the events. A target can be associated with an exploration to have the outcomes of the exploration – which are also events, at a more elevated level after all the processing has taken place – delivered for subsequent action or communication. Destination types available for targets are JMS, REST Service, HTTP Pub (channel) and the EDN of SOA Suite. Again, for development, testing and demonstrations, a CSV file can be set as the target.

In this first introduction to Stream Explorer, we will discuss a very simple challenge: we are organizing a small conference. In three rooms, sessions take place simultaneously. Our attendees are free to decide which session to attend. We would like to know at virtually any moment how many people are in each room. We have set up simple detectors at the doors of the rooms that produce a signal whenever someone enters or leaves the room. This signal consists of the room identifier (1,2 or 3) and an IN/OUT flag (values +1 or -1).

We will use Stream Explorer to process these events and produce an aggregate per room of the net number of people that entered or left the room. In subsequent articles we will do more advanced explorations in this same setting – looking at prematurely concluded sessions, jammed doors, overflowing rooms etc.

Preparation

The preparation consists of the installation of Stream Explorer on top of an OEP domain. Start the OEP Server. The Stream Explorer can be accessed at http://host:port/sx. Login using the same user used for the OEP Events Visualizer web application: wlevs. Read the complete article here.

Mobile & Mobile Cloud Service hands-on training at Fusion Middleware Summer Camps V – August 17-20th 2015 Lisbon

Mobile & Mobile Cloud Service hands-on training by product management – August 17-21 2015 Lisbon

clip_image002Trainers: Grant Ronald & Frank Nimphius

Duration 4 Days

A successful mobile business is like an iceberg on open sea. Only the smallest portion of a mobile application resides on the mobile device where it renders the visual user interface and executes the client logic. The bigger part, and the heavy lifting, is hidden as infrastructure services on remote servers where it performs tasks like providing mobile optimized APIs, integrate remote SOAP and REST services, manage mobile users for an application or use case, store content and similar common mobile tasks. On the public cloud, infrastructure that provides the mobile backend to mobile applications is referred to as MbaaS (Mobile backend as a Service).  Oracle Mobile Cloud Service is the MbaaS solution by Oracle. Oracle MCS is a new Oracle public cloud offering that releases close to the time of the EMEA Oracle Fusion Middleware (OFM) Summer Camp in Lisbon 2015. The Mobile Product Management team at Oracle takes this, the upcoming first release of Oracle MCS and the OFM Summer Camp 2015, as an opportunity to offer a 4 1/2 day training on Oracle MCS. Beside of learning all about Oracle MCS, attendees will have the opportunity to try and experience Oracle MCS in a hands-on workshop using the Oracle MCS Cloud portal UI, Google Postman, Curl and Oracle Mobile Application Framework (MAF). This training enables you to use Oracle MCS in your own mobile projects and provides all information you need to know to immediately get started.

For details and agenda please visit our OFM Summer Camps registration page here.

My private corner – Golden Gate Bridge Run October 25th 2015

clip_image002

Run across the Golden Gate Bridge and Back – almost exactly a 5K.
Not a runner? Come out and walk!
Most folks come out to San Francisco for a conference and never make it out to its #1 landmark.
Great opportunity to meet new people, see the Bay, and start the week with a nice workout or stroll.
This will be our 4th year hosting the run. It’s unofficial – you’re on your own getting out there and back.

But we will have a t-shirt :)
