"BPEL PM and OSB Operational Management with Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g Grid Control" Book - My Humble Review
By csoto on Jan 07, 2011
After reviewing this book, I am really amazed with it. I really recommend it, specially if you work with these Oracle tools like Enterprise Manager (of course), BPEL (and BPEL Process Manager), SOA Suite and/or OSB, if you are a SOA Architect and/or if your work is focused on production environments.
As the title says, advanced techniques for operational management of these products (even for multiple environments) are provided on this book, including valuable and useful information for monitoring and automation tasks.
In the books is very clearly explained and with screenshots (which makes it even easier to read, understand and follow) how to perform several tasks that are necessary to keep a correct performance on the production environments and the subtasks that must be executed on them, with very good examples too.
The test sections on chapters 3, 10 and 13 (SOAP tests for partner links and BPEL processes, service tests on web applications, and SOAP test OSB proxy and business service endpoints) look specially interesting for me and I really liked to see that there is special emphasis on the use of WebLogic Server as well.
