SOA Enterprise Manager QuikStart
By leroyk on Jul 12, 2007
So this week I am prepping for a JavaCAPS web services demo. JavaCAPS has a cool component called Enterprise Manager. Enterprise Manager will let you view any business process in flight. So you can see what is in progress, completed, failed. You can pull up any information regarding that process. To make it work there are a couple things you may miss if you do not read the documentation. Guilty as charged here.
1. After you have unzipped and installed Enterprise Manager. You must install the EM specific plugins that you will need to display your business process. There are plugins that display web services, oracle connection, jms queues and more.
Do complete the install you can logon to Enterprise Manager console and have it connect to the repository to download needed components. Alternatively you can log on to the Repository directly and download them to your file system. Then from the EM console you can upload them.
To see what plugins are available, go to the repository console and select download. Look for any line that contains Enterprise Manager Plug-in. Failover to install the plug-ins will result in you not being able to see your business processes.
2. Do not forget to install the eInsight Tables. You will install a baseline set of tables. These can be found under the "SeeBeyond -> eInsight -> Database Scripts". You will need to check out the scripts. Alter the file paths as needed for the database. Also you will need to right click on "Database Scripts" and change the properties for the database.
Also once you build your project, the designer will create a database script under your business process. These tables are needed to support this specific business process. The process is similar to the previous step.
1. As you are defining your composite application. Make sure your integration server properties has persistence set AND reporting set to TRUE.
2. In your business process properties set reporting to TRUE as well. Click on save. Your database scripts will now be added to your business process in the left panel of the designer tool.
That is it and you can now monitor your business processes in production. These are the things that I missed because well I skipped the reading is fundamental step.
Also my thanks to Tom B. for getting me through this so effortlessly.
