FMW 12.1.3 released!

FMW 12.1.3 was just released! This release build on top of the FMW 12.1.2 release. The biggest difference b/w FMW 12.1.3 and FMW 12.1.2 - is the addition of SOA, BPM, ODI product suites. 

Here are some quick links for people to get started:

  • You can download SOA 12.1.3 from here
  • OWSM 12.1.3 documentation can be found here

 The key features in OWSM 12.1.3 include:

  1. Ability to secure SOA/OSB REST services and clients.
  2. Some of the security enhancements we introduced in 12.1.2 are now applicable to SOA as well. This includes - better Kerberos support, SPNEGO support, SecureConversation support, etc
  3. Fine grained Authorization support (via integration with OES)
  4. Support for securing SOA/OSB JCA bindings.
  5. PII support for SOA/OSB.
  6. Global Policy Attachments are now supported for OSB and WLS WS as well. 
  7. Added support for ESS based Web Services

You can find more details on OSB-OWSM integration in the OSB doc in EM and there is also greater support for OSB-OWSM integration in JDeveloper.
