Slicing the EDG

Different SOA Domain Configurations In this blog entry I would like to introduce three different configurations for a SOA environment.  I have omitted load balancers and OTD/OHS as they introduce a whole new round of discussion.  For each possible deployment architecture I have identified some of the advantages. Super Domain This is a single EDG style domain for everything needed for SOA/OSB.   It extends the standard EDG slightly but otherwise assumes a single “super” domain. Thi...

Clear Day for Cloud Adapters

salesforce.com Adapter Released Yesterday Oracle released their cloud adapter for salesforce.com (SFDC) so I thought I would talk a little about why you might want it.  I had previously integrated with SFDC using BPEL and the SFDC web interface, so in this post I will explore why the adapter might be a better approach.

Going Native with JCA Adapters

Formatting JCA Adapter Binary Contents Sometimes you just need to go native and play with binary data rather than XML.  This occurs commonly when using JCA adapters, the file to be written is in binary format, or the TCP messsages written by the Socket Adapter are in binary format.  Although the adapter has no problem converting Base64 data into raw binary, it is a little tricky to get that data into base64 format in the first place, so this blog entry will explain how. Adapter...
