Introducing Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) Exchange

Oracle Data Integrator 12.2.1 was recently released and
introduces many
exciting new features
including the ODI Exchange. In a nutshell, ODI
Exchange allows Oracle and our users to easily share global ODI objects
(Knowledge Modules and User Functions) with the rest of the community through
Update Centers. There are 2 Update Centers: one on Java.net which hosts unsupported but
very valuable ODI objects shared by our community and one on the Oracle
Technology Network (OTN) that will be used in the future to ship supported ODI

Did you know? Our Oracle Data Integration project on
already hosts dozens of Knowledge Modules, User Functions and more
(SDK samples, Open Tools, Technologies etc.). Now with ODI Exchange most of
this content is readily available from ODI Studio!

To get started simply open up ODI Studio 12.2.1, go to Help and click on Check for Updates

Then select the Update Centers you want to connect to:

  • Official Oracle Update Center: Hosted on OTN,
    this Update Center will be used to ship officially supported ODI objects from
    the ODI Development team. This Update Center does not contain any objects at
    the moment
  • Customers and Partners Update Center: Hosted on Java.net, this Update Center provides non certified but yet very valuable ODI objects created by customers, partners and Oracle employees

Click Next and then select one or more objects you would like to download.

It is also possible to filter the results using the Search box at the top. We can type ‘big data’ for example to download a Loading Knowledge Module that leverages Oracle Big Data SQL.

Once the objects are selected click Next and ODI will download the files locally. Finally click on
Finish to complete the process.

The objects will be imported into your ODI repository and will be available in Designer in the Global Objects accordion.

In the next blog post of this series we will look at how you
can share your global ODI objects with the rest of the ODI community!

Features document on OTN
