A Real-World Experience using AIA Productivity Tools

In his latest blog post, Rajesh Raheja puts a spotlight on a not-well publicised (and highly underestimated tool) called the XSL Mapping Analyzer (a.k.a XMAN).

Please read here for more details.

Using Cloud OER to Find Fusion Applications On-Premise Service Concrete WSDL URL

In his latest blog post, Rajesh Raheja explains how on-premise customers without a dedicated OER can find a concrete service WSDL URL for their specific environment using the cloud hosted OER instance. Please read here for more details.

SOA Adoption and Architecture Fundamentals course is now generally available!

Numerous companies have begun a SOA initiative with the assumption that implementing web services is synonymous with employing a service-oriented architecture. They have gone on to discover various barriers to SOA success and have not seen the returns a successful SOA implementation can provide.  These companies lacked an understanding of SOA adoption and architecture fundamentals.  This course presents those fundamentals with an Enterprise Architect's view of Oracle's SOA Enterprise Technology strategy, to equip the student with skills for handling both business and IT concerns throughout the entire SOA life cycle, from both the program and the project perspectives.

This course takes the student far beyond the limited view of SOA as simply a collection of web services. Students learn how to assess an organization's SOA capabilities in eight separate business and technical domains, and how to analyze the gap between those capabilities and their SOA vision. From that maturity assessment, they learn steps to develop a multi-year SOA road map for an organization and a framework for SOA project selection. A deep-dive exploration of SOA Reference Architecture from the conceptual, logical, product mapping, and physical perspectives is presented before the course transitions its focus to the service engineering life cycle.

As the course introduces the service engineering life cycle, it stresses the importance of analysis, architecture, delivery and management. Lessons present criteria and techniques for service identification and discovery, and guidelines for consistent access to enterprise information. Requirements management is discussed, and the decomposition of functional requirements, business processes, applications and data requirements is presented. The identification, discovery, justification and validation of services is covered, and is followed by an exploration of service delivery. Additional course topics include a discussion of the principles of service-oriented integration, and the reasons and guidelines for establishing a SOA governance framework.

Learn to:

  • Assess an organization's SOA maturity
  • Identify and prioritize service candidates
  • Define a high level conceptual and logical architecture
  • Create an SOA road map for an organization
