ArchBeat Top 10 for December 2-8, 2012

The Top 10 most-clicked items shared on the OTN ArchBeat Facebook page for the week of December 2-8, 2012

  1. Configure Oracle SOA JMSAdatper to Work with WLS JMS Topics
    Another of the four posts published on Dec 4 by the Fusion Middleware A-Team blogger identified as "fip" illlustrates "how to configure the JMS Topic, the JmsAdapter connection factory, as well as the composite so that the JMS Topic messages will be evenly distributed to same composite running off different SOA cluster nodes without causing duplication."
  2. Web Service Example - Part 3: Asynchronous
    Part 3 in this series from the Oracle ADF Mobile blog looks at "firing the web service asynchronously and then filling in the UI when it completes." Denis says, "This can be useful when you have data on the device in a local store and want to show that to the user while the application uses lazy loading from a web service to load more data."
  3. Advanced Oracle SOA Suite Oracle Open World 2012 SOA Presentations
    Oracle SOA & BPM Partner Community blogger Juergen Kress shares a list of 13 SOA presentations delivered or moderated by Oracle SOA Product Management at OOW12 in San Francisco.
  4. Oracle WebLogic Server WLS Domain Browser
    My colleague Jeff Davies, a frequent speaker at OTN Architect Day events and a genuinely nice guy, emailed me last night with this message: "I just came across this app on Google Play. It allows WebLogic administrators to browse WLS 12c domain information. I installed it on my phone and tried it out. Works very fast." I'm an iPhone guy, but I'm perfectly comfortable taking Jeff at his word. The app is called WLS Domain Browser. Follow the link for more info from the Google Play site.
  5. Retrieve Performance Data from SOA Infrastructure Database
    Another of the four blog posts published on Dec 4 by very busy Oracle Fusion Middleware A-Team member "fip," this one offers "examples of some basic SQL queries you can run against the infrastructure database of Oracle SOA Suite 11G to acquire the performance statistics for a given period of time."
  6. How to Achieve OC4J RMI Load Balancing
    "Having returned from a customer who faced challenges with OC4J RMI load balancing, I felt there is still some confusion in the field [about] how OC4J RMI load balancing works," says the Oracle Fusion Middleware A-Team member known only as "fip." "Hence I decide to dust off an old tech note that I wrote a few years back and share it with the general public."
  7. From XaaS to Java EE – Which damn cloud is right for me in 2012?
    Oracle ACE Director Markus Eisele wrestles with a timely technical issue and shares his observations on several of the alternatives.
  8. Exalogic 2.0.1 Tea Break Snippets - Creating a ModifyJeOS VirtualBox
    "One of the main advantages of this is that Templates can be created away from the Exalogic Environment," explains The Old Toxophilist. (BTW: I had to look it up: a toxophilist is one who collects bows and arrows.)
  9. ADF Mobile - Implementing Reusable Mobile Architecture
    "Reusability was always a strong part of ADF," says Oracle ACE Director Andrejus Baranovskis. "The same high reusability level is supported now in ADF Mobile." The objective of this post is "to prove technically that [the] reusable architecture concept works for ADF Mobile."
  10. Using BPEL Performance Statistics to Diagnose Performance Bottlenecks
    Someone had a busy day… This post, one of four published on DeC 4 by a member of the Oracle Fusion Middleware A-Team identified only as "fip," offers details on how to "enable, retrieve and interpret the performance statistics, before the future versions provides a more pleasant user experience."
