Comparison: Oracle WebLogic Integration's Custom Control and SOA Suite Spring Component

Simone Geib from our team, based in lovely rainy London, and me set together a few weeks back and cranked out an article explaining how migrate the extremely powerful WLI custom controls over into a SOA composite leveraging the brand new Spring component.

The whole article can be found at http://www.oracle.com/technology/architect/soa-suite-series/wli_custom_control_spring_component.html

Comments:

That's a great article - however it seems to me not to offer all the same functionality as WLI custom controls. For example, WLI controls are stateful with instances maintained for the duration of a workflow. The invocations via the Spring component use an inherently stateless SOAP mechanism and therefore, one assumes, cannot maintain state in the same way.

"WLI controls are stateful with instances maintained for the duration of a workflow" - that's "largely" correct. If you need that you will need to provide your own persistence mechanism. I have something in mind on how to make this instance based (and hence allow for the same that you currently have in WLI). Stay tuned.
