BPEL Certified for Prebuilt E-Business Suite 12.1.3 SOA Integrations

Steven Chan
Senior Director
A new certification was released simultaneously with the E-Business Suite 12.1.3 Maintenance Pack late last year:  the use of BPEL 11g Version with E-Business Suite 12.1.3.  There are two major options for SOA-related integrations for the E-Business Suite:
  1. Custom integrations using the Oracle Application Server (SOA) Adapter for Oracle Applications
  2. Prebuilt SOA integrations for E-Business Suite using BPEL Process Manager
For more background about these two options, please see this article:   Architecture diagram showing SOA business event to web service mappingOPTION 2.  Using prebuilt E-Business Suite 12 BPEL business processes Five E-Business Suite Release 12 product teams have developed their own prebuilt BPEL business processes:
  1. Oracle Price Protection (DPP)
  2. Complex Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (CMRO/AHL)
  3. Oracle Transportation Management (WMS, WSH, PO)
  4. Advanced Supply Chain Planning (MSC)
  5. Product Information Management (PIM/EGO)
For the five products listed above, prebuilt BPEL processes have been certified with Oracle BPEL Process Manager 11g version (in Oracle SOA Suite 11g).  These prebuilt BPEL processes are certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3 and higher. Note: The Supply Chain Trading Connector (CLN) product team has opted not to support BPEL 11g with their prebuilt business processes previously certified with BPEL  If you have a requirement for that certification, I would recommend contacting your Oracle account manager to ensure that the Supply Chain team is notified appropriately. For more information about using the prebuilt R12.1.3 SOA integrations, see: Getting Support If you need support for the prebuilt EBS 12.1.3 BPEL business processes, you can log Service Requests against the Applications Technology Group product family.

    Hi Chan,

    This is a wounderfull Information. We have recetly enabled the Inetegrated SOA gateway in our ERP R12.1.3. Now my confusion is that how I can install BPEL process manager in 10g As We don't want a seperate installation of 11g SOA server.

    Hi, Apurba,

    Sorry for the delay in responding to this. Note 755067.1 has details about installation instructions for the older BPEL 10g release in E-Business Suite environments.

    You can install this on the same physical server as your EBS application tier as long as you put it in a different ORACLE_HOME.

    Hi Steven,

    Can we isntall 11g BPEL server in 10g AS? iRep in R12.1.3 is certified with BPEL-11g, we should have some mechanism to install 11g BPEL in 10g AS.

    I'm not a BPEL specialist, but my understanding is that you cannot mix-and-match BPEL and OAS versions.

    If you're using BPEL 10g, you must install Oracle Application Server 10g.
