Ovum Lauds Oracle SOA Suite 12c, Differentiates Cloud and Mobile Integration

Ovum has recently published a paper on Oracle SOA Suite and lays out differentiation.  According to the paper, with the latest release of Oracle SOA  Suite, Oracle has again proved that it can swiftly respond to customer requirements while ensuring continuity in product strategy to offer a unified platform for a wide range of integration requirements. Here is an excerpt from the paper:

Oracle SOA Suite 12c has introduced several new features and capabilities that resonate with the current integration priorities of enterprises, especially cloud and mobile integration. What differentiates Oracle SOA Suite 12c from competing platforms is its emphasis on simplifying the process involved in the development, testing, and execution of integration flows connecting a wide range of applications. 

This developer-centric approach is evident in the simple approach offered by the Oracle Cloud Adapter software development kit (SDK) for the development of new adapters to software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications. Furthermore, Oracle Cloud Adapters handle several inherent intricacies of SaaS integration, such as session management, data mapping, and specific security requirements to help reduce development efforts and costs. The developer-centric approach is also evident in the developer tooling enhancements introduced as part of Oracle SOA Suite 12c release. 

Another noteworthy feature is the integration between Oracle MFT and Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle B2B 12c, which provides support for complex orchestration use cases, such as the extension of enterprise applications to B2B e-commerce and cloud integration scenarios. 

Key messages 

 Oracle has further refined its approach to cloud and mobile integration. 

 Developer productivity is a key theme for Oracle SOA Suite 12c. 

 Oracle MFT strengthens the overall value proposition of Oracle’s integration middleware stack.

Best Practices for SOA Suite 11g to 12c Upgrade

A lot of effort has been put in by Oracle to make this major upgrade as smooth and easy as possible. The basic approach is to install SOA Suite 12c in a new oracle home and upgrade the domain and schemas in place. Customers undertaking the upgrade are primarily interested in a smooth upgrade, minimizing the number of manual steps in the upgrade, reduce the down time to a minimum, and minimize or eliminate any changes to client apps that use SOA APIs or web interfaces.

The key to a successful and smooth upgrade experience are the preupgrade preparations that you perform. The upgrade must be planned carefully. If the preupgrade preparations are not performed, there is a possibility that upgrade will fail in the middle or the system does not behave properly post upgrade. The only recourse to a failed production system upgrade is to roll it back from a full backup.

If your SOA domain includes BAM, then the upgrade is more complex because BAM does not support inplace upgrade. Please read the documentation carefully. The basic idea is to migrate the whole BAM deployment to a seperate domain using export/import, remove BAM from the soa domain during upgrade, and upgrade your soa domain to interop with the bam 11g domain. Later slowly and carefully migrate to BAM 12c from BAM 11g.

There are six top steps that should be performed before upgrade of your production system as a best practice.

  • Carefully review the prerequisites for upgrade in the documentation. Some of the prerequisites are checked upfront before we upgrade the schema in Upgrade Assistant but not all. Read all relevant upgrade documentation before starting on upgrade. Some of the key prerequisites are:
  • Can only upgrade a domain that is 11.1.1.6 or 11.1.1.7. Migrate to a supported starting point before upgrade.
  • Can only upgrade a deployment using a 64 bit JVM. Migrate to 64 bit JVM before upgrade.
  • Can only upgrade a production domain not using XE DB and is not an admin server only domain.
  • Can only upgrade a domain using LDAP or DB OPSS policy store. Migrate file based policy store to DB or LDAP based policy store before upgrade.
  • Can only upgrade a domain using a oracle DB of a version supported by the SOA Suite 12c certification matrix. Migrate to a supported DB version before upgrade.
  • Can only upgrade a domain based on weblogic server.
  • Can only upgrade a domain at this time with products deployed that were released in 12c. Example of products not released are OER, OSR, Webcenter, and SOA task UI exposed as portlets (which uses webcenter libraries).
  • Cannot upgrade a domain at this time created with T2P or pack/unpack before SOA Suite 11.1.1.6.
  • Cannot upgrade a domain at this time with multiple products in 12c in separate unclustered managed servers using UMS. Examples are BAM, OSB and SOA. The reason is because after upgrade UMS configuration is at the domain level or the cluster level, but not at a unclustered managed server level.

  • Only JDK 7 is supported. 

  • Always test upgrade first before actually upgrading your production system. Test with a clone of your production system either created with T2P or test with a existing test environment which mirrors your production environment. T2P does not clone the transactional store. It only creates an environment that is identical in configuration to the source. If you create an environment by doing T2P of production, you will first need to populate that environment with sufficiently representative transactions. Documentation for T2P can be found here:

Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide 11g Release 1 (11.1.1)
Chapter 21 Moving from a Test to a Production Environment

  • Use the upgraded test environment to test all the composites without redeploying, and to determine the performance tuning to be done to your production system post upgrade. Tuning in SOA Suite 12c is different than 11g. For example work managers are used extensively for threads in SOA Suite 12c.
  • Always backup everything before upgrading your production system and test restoring from the backup in your test system. If the upgrade fails in the middle, you might have to restore the backup.
  • Before upgrade of your production system, purge as many instances as possible that are not essential to keep to make the upgrade faster. Upgrade will upgrade all the open instances when running the Upgrade assistant and closed instances are upgraded lazily post schema upgrade in the background. This can take significant time and disk space. There is currently no estimation tool for amount of disk space or time, so be conservative so upgrade does not run out of disk space.
  • Upgrade all your SOA projects in JDeveloper and test them on your upgraded test system. This is so there is no surprises later when you need to change the project to add a new feature or fix a bug. Currently though there is no tool to bulk upgrade a lot of JDeveloper projects in a script. We are exploring such a tool. However compile and deployment can be scripted.

Oracle Is a Leader in the Gartner 2014 Magic Quadrant for On-Premises Application Integration Suites

Oracle is a leader in the Gartner 2014 “Magic Quadrant for On-Premises Application Integration Suites” report. This report is an essential reference for following key trends and understanding what to consider when evaluating on-premises application integration suites.

In the report, Gartner makes the statement that," There are two macro trends and drivers, Nexus of Forces and digital business, which will increase use of on-premises application integration suite offerings.” And specifically defines Digital Business as, “…the creation of new business designs by blurring the digital and physical worlds. It promises to usher in an unprecedented convergence of people, business and things that disrupts existing business models — even those born of the Internet, e-business and digital marketing eras. By 2020, more than 7 billion people and businesses, and at least 35 billion devices, will be connected to the Internet. With people, businesses and things communicating, transacting and even negotiating with one another, a new world comes into being — the world of digital business. Businesses that succeed in this new and disruptive world will be the ones that can capture the combined power of people, businesses and things by picturing how new value is created. To capture that power, IT will be required to encompass endpoints that are in the IoT.”

Oracle continues to capitalize on the Nexus of Forces and Digital Business trends by innovating and lead with its on-premise and cloud integration offerings—here are some of the reasons why:

    • Oracle recently announced Oracle SOA Suite 12c which simplifies Cloud, Mobile and On-Premise Integration. In addition, it delivers an industry leading solution for Internet of Things while continuing to deliver on B2B and Application Integration.

    • Oracle SOA suite seamlessly integrates and connects across the entire IT ecosystem on a single, unified, platform.

A Brave New Integration World - Value Proposition of Oracle SOA Suite 12c

Oracle SOA Suite 12c  provides a whole gamut of solutions in extremely complex technical areas. In order to understand the value proposition in each of these solution areas, I recently authored a white paper from the perspective of the customer. Several customers have been showcased in this paper, including JDSU, Agilent, Turkcell, Canon, Ricoh, and Schneider International.

Here is an excerpt from the paper:

Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is a strategy for connecting business processes and exchanging information via loosely coupled software components. SOA is well entrenched in the IT landscape and SOA principles have become widely adopted as a foundation for enterprise applications. What began as a basic middleware technology for linking information systems has become a key enabler for many of today’s hottest technologies including cloud integration, mobile enablement, fast data and the Internet of Things, application integration, and B2B. SOA has also revolutionized how modern businesses operate by simplifying internal application-integration projects and external business-to-business (B2B) integration tasks. Creating application interfaces with standard, reusable software components makes it easier to accommodate business changes and to share information with business partners.

This paper examines these middleware trends and explains how Oracle SOA Suite can enable a service-oriented foundation for creating, modifying, and combining information from all types of software applications and intelligent devices. Using real world examples, it demonstrates how Oracle customers have solved a wide variety of data management challenges using SOA and related technologies from the Oracle Fusion Middleware family.

What's New in SOA Suite 12c - Unified Interface for Service Bus and Event Processing

This second in a blog series on "What's New in SOA Suite 12c" focuses on another new feature of this major release of

What's New in Oracle SOA Suite 12c White Paper

 Oracle SOA Suite.   In Oracle SOA Suite 11g, the user interface was unified across most of the components with the exception of Oracle Service Bus and Oracle Event Processing.   When I talk to existing customers and Oracle technical specialists, I hear a wide range of responses when asked "What is your favorite feature of Oracle SOA Suite 12c".  Cloud and Mobile integration are at the top of the list, but one of the other common responses is "Oracle Service Bus" using the same JDeveloper interface as Oracle SOA Suite.  This major enhancement has been in the works for years and is now delivered in 12c to allow users to learn one interface for all the components of integration, simplifying integration and providing faster time to integrate, especially when projects span many components of integration.

Here is an excerpt from the "What's New in Oracle SOA Suite 12c" White Paper by Oracle's Simone Geib on the unified interface.  Download it now to learn about this and many other features:

A key differentiator of Oracle SOA Suite 11g relative to other integration platforms has always been the unified design interface across most of the components for Oracle SOA Suite. Oracle SOA Suite 12c takes this differentiator a big step forward by integrating the remaining major components for Oracle SOA Suite, Oracle Service Bus and Oracle Event Processing, into a single unified experience. This feature simplifies integration by eliminating the need to train developers, administrators, architects and others on separate components for every aspect of integration, which lowers cost and provides a faster time to integrate.

The images below show the main component palette for Oracle SOA Suite which now includes "Service Bus" at the top as well as adapters for technology components, on-premise and cloud applications and other advanced features.  On the right, is the same JDeveloper drag and drop component palette showing the objects to be used for Oracle Event Processing.

What's New in Oracle Event Processing 12c?

Event processing is an integral part of an Internet of Things platform. As massive amounts of data streams from sensing devices, it’s important to derive an understanding of what data is important and what’s not. Oracle Event Processing (OEP) delivers real-time analysis of high-velocity data. It is a complete solution for building IoT applications to filter, correlate and process events in real time so that downstream applications are driven by true, real-time intelligence. OEP filters out noise (such as data ticks without any change in values) and helps identify critical conditions before this data is actually relayed to the back-end. Built on industry standards including SQL, Java, and OSGI, it provides an open architecture for processing complex events.

Oracle Event Processing, part of Oracle SOA Suite, can handle up to a million messages per second at extremely low latencies when running on Oracle engineered systems, making it the ideal solution to perform real-time filtering, geo-location, and pattern matching on the massive streams of data generated by IoT "smart" devices.

Oracle SOA Suite 12c more tightly integrates the OEP platform with Oracle Service Bus and the Oracle SOA Suite Event Delivery Network (EDN). Oracle SOA Suite 12c takes the differentiation of having a unified interface a big step forward by integrating across all major components for Oracle SOA Suite, including Oracle Service Bus and Oracle Event Processing, into a single unified experience. This feature simplifies integration by eliminating the need to train developers, administrators, architects and others on separate components for every aspect of integration, which lowers cost and provides a faster time to integrate. 

With Oracle SOA Suite 12c, OEP has been integrated into JDeveloper, providing a visually impressive component palette to create your applications by simply dragging and dropping the required artifacts onto the canvas. With each event node dropped, wizard driven prompting is shown to ensure that the correct and required parameters are quickly defined. Another major new feature is the Event Delivery Network (EDN) event adapter nodes, which provide that tight integration at runtime to Oracle SOA Suite composites and all other SOA components supporting the EDN. 

Using the resource components window view, the Oracle Event Processing runtime server and application status can be easily reviewed and manipulated effectively.

40+ Oracle SOA Customers in One Location

More than ever before, technology is key to building differentiation. Leveraging new technology trends and innovations is vital for companies to remain competitive. However it can also result in a hodge-podge of technologies and quickly become a maintenance nightmare for IT. Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) or Service Integration has revolutionized how modern businesses can address this by simplifying IT even while enabling innovation and modernization. 

SOA principles have become widely adopted as a foundation for enterprise applications. What began as a basic middleware technology for linking loosely coupled software components has become a key enabler for many of today’s hottest technologies including cloud integration, mobile enablement, application integration, Business to Business (B2B), fast data and the internet of things. In addition the engineered systems advantage for Oracle SOA Suite enables faster time to market and lowered total cost of ownership.

Today thousands of organizations across the world are using SOA to help drive innovations, while improving real-time performance and driving down IT costs. In this booklet we’ve compiled recent case studies across a range of industries including names like Agilent Technologies, Pickles Auction, Fluid-e, Schneider National, Sascar, and Turk Telecom.
