OSB and OWSM integration enhancements - 11g

In my previous post, I described one of the key features that we added in OWSM for PS6 was support for securing REST services. I forgot to mention that another key addition in PS6 relates to the OSB/OWSM integration. The integration has been enhanced to address some of the more common issues that were raised by customers.

Two key enhancements in this area include:

a) Support for securing OSB REST services with OWSM Policies.

Note: OSB has not certified all the REST security policies OWSM supports in PS6.

b) Support for Attachments (MTOM, SwA) and OWSM security policies

More details on what is supported in OSB in PS6 can be found here.

FMW PS6 (11.1.1.7.0) released!

Just a quick note - FMW PS6 has been released. OWSM is part of the FMW release train. As was the case with the previous FMW Patchset release - this is a feature bearing release.

The OWSM PS6 documentation describes as part of what's new section an exhaustive list of features:

The following new features and enhancements have been added to the current release of Oracle Web Services Manager:

In future blog posts I will post in more detail about some of the features - but in this blog post I wanted to highlight one particular features that I think customers are going to find very useful:

Securing REST services (a.k.a Servlet Application Security)

Customers can build REST services in one of two ways:

  • As Servlet applications without using any REST technology stack
  • Using REST stacks like Jersey JAX-RS

In PS6 - OWSM support's securing REST services built using either methodologies. So all the capabilities and power of OWSM to secure SOAP services can now be used for securing REST services.

Here is are some quick doc pointers:

Note: In this release OWSM does NOT SUPPORT securing REST clients - for example REST Clients built using the Jersey JAX-RS stack.

In this blog I will discuss mainly features supported by Oracle Web Service Manager (OWSM).
