Service-enable JD Edwards EnterpriseOne with Oracle SOA Suite 11gR1
By Srikant Subramaniam-Oracle on Jul 10, 2009
In this tutorial, we show how to implement native web services integration to JD Edwards EnterpriseOne from Oracle SOA Suite 11gR1.
There are several new features in Fusion Middleware 11g that enable the creation of Service Oriented Architectures with JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications and to develop business processes and composite applications using the relevant Fusion Middleware technology.
New features include:
- Simplified development experience via support for Service Component Architecture and the SOA Composite Editor (JDeveloper)
- Enhanced human workflow offers new JSF based rich client framework, ADF task flow forms and integration with Microsoft Office
- WebCenter Spaces to facilitate efficient interaction and collaboration among project teams
- Unified management and monitoring capability, including end-to-end instance tracking across all service engines
- Automated upgrade path from 10g
- Robust performance and scalability via the underlying WebLogic Application Server infrastructure
While a detailed discussion (or the list) of the new features is outside the scope of this discussion, this whitepaper talks about "What's new in Oracle SOA Suite 11g".Tutorial overview
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne supports native web services and exposes a number of functions as Business Services. We show how BPEL makes a service call out to a JD Edwards web service to retrieve the customer credit information. The resulting data is then transformed to output only the fields of interest.
- JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Apps 8.12 with Tools 8.97
- Oracle SOA Suite version 11gR1 (available for download from OTN)
- Oracle JDeveloper version 11gR1 (available for download from OTN)
The main process steps are:
- Generate a WSDL in EnterpriseOne for Customer Credit information*
- Create a synchronous BPEL process to consume this WSDL.
- Transform the resulting output from getCustomerCreditInfo operation into the desired format.
