OIC Feature Flag – Data Stitch by Niall Commiskey

Data Stitch action in Orchestration Available to you as feature flag (oic.ics.console.integration.stitch-action) Available from version -All text in italics is from ORCL docs. This is a new capability within the orchestration designer that enables customers to initialize and progressively update complex variables within integration flows. IT specialists can now use the "Global Variables" section of the designer to define new variables in the integration flow that can hold complex content and use the data stitch action to progressively populate and/or manipulate whole or parts of the document. You can simply drag and drop the "Data Stitch" action from the component palette into the canvas and graphically model the data assignments as an ordered sequence of statements to populate scalar or complex variables wholly or partially.  Designers can add multiple data stitch actions at various points in the integration flow to update existing or append new sections to previously declared and populated variables using data from various sources. Couldn't have said it better myself, net, net - Data Stitch allows us to create and manipulate complex variables within an integration orchestration. This was something missing in OIC, for those coming from SOA Suite/SOA CS. Read the complete article here.

How to embed CDATA into XML: Oracle Integration Cloud by Ankur Jain

  There is a scenario where you are required to consume SOAP API and the API require to send CDATA as part of the request. In the article, we are going to showcase how to embed the CDATA into the XML request in Oracle Integration Cloud. Let’s first understand what CDATA is? A Character Data(CDATA) section contains text that will NOT be parsed by a parser. Tags inside a CDATA section will NOT be treated as markup and entities will not be expanded. The primary purpose is for including material such as XML fragments, without needing to escape all the delimiters. Example of SOAP API having the CDATA In the below SOAP API request, please see the “<general:BPXML>” and under this CDATA element is there. When you will consume the same into OIC, you will not see the end elements( <wrapper>, <emp>, <name>, etc. ) under CDATA in mapper. If not found in the mapper how you will send the data to SOAP request which is required. Read the complete article here.

Javascript in ANT by Martien van den Akker

Earlier I wrote about an ANT script to scan JCA adapters files in your projects home, subversion working copy or github local repo. g In my current project we use sensors to kick-of message-archiving processes, without cluttering the BPEL process. I'm not sure if I would do that like that if I would do on a new project, but technically the idea is interesting. Unfortunately, we did not build a registry what BPEL processes make use of it and how. So I tought of how I could easily find out a way to scan that, and found that based on the script to scan JCA files, I could easily scan all the BPEL sensor files. If you have found the project folders, like I did in the JCA scan script, you can search for the *_sensor.xml files. So in a few hours I had a basic sript. Now, in a second iteration, I would like to know what sensorActions the sensors trigger. For that I need to interpret the accompanying *_sensorAction.xml file. There for, based on the found sensor filename I need to determine the name of the sensor action file. Read the complete article here.

Accelerate API Integration With the Power of OpenAPI by Anuj Kaushal

The OpenAPI Specification defines a standard, programming language-agnostic interface description for REST APIs. We are pleased to announce OpenAPI support in Oracle integration cloud REST adapter. What this means is that all OIC integration flows with a REST trigger will publish an openAPI to describe its metadata. This machine readable description of the API will allow interactive API explorers as well as the developers to consume OIC integration flows with ease. On activation of an integration flow, the metadata link will show the new option to display the openAPI in addition to the swagger URL. We are also introducing an interactive openAPI explorer in the Oracle integration cloud REST adapter wizard that will help integration developers to explore and consume APIs described in openAPI format with a few clicks. The REST adapter already has similar support for swagger2.0. Read the complete article here.

Object Storage with Oracle Integration Cloud – Part 1 by Stan Tanev

  Over the past few years, in everything from personal photo storage to enterprise development there has been an incredible uptake of cloud storage buckets which provide a simple, low-cost mechanism for storing unstructured data. For much longer than that, there has been a need to consume, stage and produce unstructured data in enterprise integration scenarios. File servers accessible via protocols such as FTP/SFTP, etc. are commonly used to meet the staging requirements of traditional file-based integration use cases. The practice of using an FTP/SFTP server alongside Oracle’s cloud integration platform – Oracle Integration Cloud (henceforth, OIC), is nothing new and is well documented. In a series of upcoming blogs, I will explore how we can use Oracle’s cloud storage buckets (Oracle Cloud Infrastructure – Object Storage) instead of a traditional FTP server in cloud-based integrations.

Integration Versioning: Oracle Integration Cloud by Ankur Jain

In this article, we are going to showcase the concept of Integration Versioning in Oracle Integration Cloud. Some blogs that might help you extend your knowledge Multiple resources with single REST: Oracle Integration Oracle Integration Cloud Service Lookups What is Versioning You might be wondering what a number on software’s, integrations and applications. These numbers are called version of the applications. For example: If we say download a 12C database. Here what 12 mean is, it is nothing, it’s just version of database. Versioning in Oracle Integration Cloud OIC supports the model of semantic versioning. It is best recognized as Major, Minor and Patch. Effect of Versioning Major: If there is change in the Major version then more than one integration can be activated at a time. For example: Both the integration with versions 01.00.0000 & 02.00.0000 can be activated a same time. Minor: If there is change in the Minor version then only one integration can be activated at a time. For example: Only one integration with the versions 01.00.0000 & 01.01.0000 can be activated at a time. Read the complete article here.

Integration Cloud Who Are We – Using Headers to Identify IP Addresses by Antony Reynolds

Identifying Integration Cloud IP Addresses In this blog post I will show how to identify IP addresses associated with Integration Cloud. The Challenge When whitelisting services we need to know their IP address.  This is easy if we need to identify the inbound address to Integration Cloud, we can just resolve the Integration Cloud hostname to get the IP address of the Integration Cloud load balancer to be whitelisted for inbound traffic to integration Cloud.  This is useful if we need to whitelist outbound calls through a firewall to Integration Cloud.  However for outbound traffic from Integration Cloud we need to do a little more.  This is needed when the target of integration Cloud invokes need to whitelist their caller. The Solution Part #1 Using an External Service to Look Up Source IP We will create an integration that calls a service that returns the calling IP address.  For outbound traffic from Integration Cloud this will be different from the inbound address.  There is a service call Ipify that returns the calling IP address.  This has a REST API that can be invoked to obtain the IP address. To create it we create a new integration called Get Outbound IP. Read the complete article here.

Jarvis Pizzeria: Summary of a Decision Model Use Case by Marcel van de Glind

We have written a blog series of 6 posts describing a Decision Model Use Case. Because it concerns a series of multiple blogs and it may be difficult to oversee the whole. We will outline the full picture in this blog. Summary The Use Case is about accessing a Decision Model via ICS from PCS. The data used in the DM is retrieved from a Business Object in ICS and sent to the DM. The DM request data and the DM outcomes are stored in a BO in JSON format via an integration. Using a DM in PCS (how to manage versions …) In the first blog we make the first version of the Decision Model. In this implementation we call the Decision Model directly from PCS. We also pay attention to the difference between versions and snapshots of Decision Models, and how to use them. Using a DM in ICS In this blog we adjust the call from PCS so that the call from PCS goes through ICS. Hereby the creation of this ICS integration is explained step by step. How to manage Masterdata of a DM (part 1) In this blog we show a way to move the constant data in the Decision Model to the integration, with the purpose that the Decision Model therefore needs to be adjusted less often. It also emerges that this does have an impact on the internal structure of the Decision Model. The model has been changed from a decision table to nested if-then-else constructions. How to manage Masterdata of a DM (part 2) In part 1 we moved the constant data from the Decision Model to the integration. In the integration, use was made of variable with a constant value (as was the case in the DM). In this blog we show how we can get the values ​​from a database table (Business Object) instead of this constants. Managing DM Masterdata Validity Period In this blog we will expand the Use Case further with a validity period for the masterdata in the Business Object. Because this only contains changes to already existing components, the overview image does not change. Input and Output Storage of Decision Model Invokes In the sixth and final blog we have further elaborated the Use Case. The whole has been expanded with the storage in a BO of the DM input and output messages. A piece of javaScript was also discussed with which XML messages can be converted to JSON.

How to send email with attachments in OIC? By Niket Narang

Have you ever encountered a scenario where the requirement was to send attachments along with email notification in OIC and you could not? Well, now it is possible. The new feature makes it really easy to configure notification activity to add attachments along with the email. Prerequisite Enable feature flag:  oic.ics.console.notification-attachment Click here to learn on how to enable feature flag. The minimum Oracle Integration version required for the feature is 191020.0200.32001. Step By Step Guide to Send Notification with Attachment There are multiple ways in OIC to work with files. Some of the options are i) configure REST adapter to accept attachments as part of the request, ii) use Stage file activity to create a new file or iii) use FTP adapter to download the file to OIC from remote location for further processing. Any file reference(s) created by upstream operations can be used to configure attachments in the notification activity. Let us learn how we can configure notification action to send email with attachments in simple steps: For this blog, we will clone the sample integration ‘Hello World’ that is available with OIC.

How To Configure an Integration flow with Binary Content Using Rest Adapter as Trigger in Oracle Integration by Sri Ranga Prashant Padala

Binary Content Type Support in Oracle Integration Rest Adapter Trigger Introduction: Oracle Integration Rest Adapter now supports application/octet-stream in the trigger request and response, with this new capability, it will be possible to invoke an integration using Binary content over REST. Similarly, it will be possible for an integration flow to return binary content in response to a request over REST. Before we do a deep dive on the feature let us start with understating what is application/octet-stream About "application/octet-stream" MIME attachments: A MIME attachment with the content type "application/octet-stream" is a binary file. Typically, it will be an application or a document that must be opened in an application, such as a spreadsheet or word processor. If the attachment has a filename extension associated with it, you may be able to tell what kind of file it is. A .exe extension, for example, indicates it is a Windows or DOS program (executable), while a file ending in .doc is probably meant to be opened in Microsoft Word. Read the complete article here.

OIC Integration: defining and using constants by Jan Kettenis

Oracle Integration Cloud does not have native support for constants, but it is easy to set this up. This post discusses how. For integrations there are two ways to define constants in the Oracle Integration Cloud: Lookups Variables Lookups are initially meant to support mapping of values from one domain to another. For example, one domain has country code using two letters ("NL") whereas another domain uses three letters ("NLD"). The lookup can then be used to "translate" the value from one to the other ("NL" <-> "NLD"). The same feature can also be used to support configurable constants by providing a list of name-value pairs. For example, in the following SMColor lookup two different name-value pairs have been stored, "YELLOW" with value "yellow", and "BLUE" with value "blue": In an integration you can use this lookup to get the value by name using an XPath lookup function. As I will show hereafter, there are two different XPath expressions, each being used in a different context. Variables are set in an Integration using the Assign activity. You can define a variable with a specific name and a value. You can also use a combination of the two. In the following example you see the variable "red" being defined with value "red" and the variable "blue" is initiated using an XPath expression that on its turn gets the value from the lookup name-value pair with name "BLUE": Read the complete article here.

Why and How to Integrate Oracle Policy Automation with Oracle Integration by Cristian Silipigni

Oracle Integration has recently introduced new functionalities to extend its connection capabilities. I’m especially talking about the enhanced Oracle Policy Automation adapter which is often used in integration projects when it’s required to extend SaaS applications. The Oracle Policy Automation (OPA) adapter is available in Oracle Integration to address different scenarios allowing to OPA decisions to be invoked at any point of the integration flows. For example, when a Service Cloud Incident is created for a medical device manufacturer (for instance a hearing aid), an integration instance can be triggered by OPA used to find out what to do with this particular type of incident and routing properly the managed information. The integration layer (in this case OIC) performs all necessary actions saving the decision somewhere, invoking other processes / web services or pushing data to multiple applications Cloud and / or on-premise. By using Oracle Integration we can easily integrate the OPA decisions logic into any enterprise application without the need to build a custom connector. There are some use cases where OPA is used in an integration scenario: Auto-triage incidents to ensure service-level agreements are met Calculate benefit payments using data stored in a legacy system Recalculate leave entitlements when regulations changes Calculate complex sales commissions The Oracle Integration adapter today enables bidirectional communications allowing inbound and outbound communication patterns.

OIC Process: Auto-Mapping Elements in the Data Mapper by Jan Kettenis

When mapping data in the Oracle Integration Cloud (or OIC for short) you sometimes discover that elements you want to map from are not always available as a source on the left-hand side. As I recently found out (thank you Eduardo Chiocconi!) that does not necessarily mean that they are not available for mapping. An example might be including some elements of the request in the title of the process instance. Until now I always did this by including a Data Mapper right after the Start Event. However, the same I could have achieved in the Start Activity itself. The following figure shows how I map the value of the "title" predefined variable to itself, concatenated with some values from the request (customer name and id): As you can see in the Processes tab of the Workspace both the title and the concatenated values are visible. Saves you Data Mapper activity :-) Read the complete article here.

Jarvis Pizzeria: Managing DM Masterdata Validity Period by Marcel van de Glind

In a previous blog we described how to retrieving the masterdata from a VBCS Business Object. In this blog we will expand this further with a validity period for the masterdata Now let’s expand our scenario (see previous blog)  a little further. Currently, one of the means of transport in the Decision model is a bike. Many bikes in the Netherlands are currently being replaced by an electrically powered version. Jarvis Pizzeria will also replace regular bikes with electric bikes from the new year. The change must also be implemented in the system (read Decision Model). However, we do not want to implement this change at the turn of the year, but are already preparing it now. To achieve this, the variables must be provided with attributes that delimit the validity period of the variable. Because we have already moved the variables of the Decision Model to a Business Object (see previous post), this is fairly easy to implement. Extending the BO definition with a start and end date and adjusting the selection query so that it takes these dates into account would be sufficient. So let’s see what that will look like. Firstly, the adaptation of the BO definition (the last two fields are new). Read the complete article here.

Jarvis Pizzeria: Input and Output Storage of Decision Model Invokes by Marcel van de Glind

In this blog we describe a way to store the Input and Output of Decision Model Invokes (in JSON format). From an administrative point of view, we at Jarvis believe it is important that we can always see how we have achieved certain results. In this case this means that we want to know with which variables the Decision Model was invoked and what the outcomes were. How we do this is subject of this blog. Saving the results is e.g. possible after performing the ‘Calculate Delivery Time’ integration in the Process. However, we have chosen to do this in the integration that we have already created (Managing DM Masterdata Validity Period) so that the process is not polluted with this technical step. As will appear later in this blog, we have to slightly update the payload of the call. The integration looks like this at the end of this previous blog. Read the complete article here.

API Platform – Developer Portal Delegated Authentication by Phil Wilkins

The API Platform when you configure IDCS to provide the option to authenticate users against a corporate Identity Provider such as Active Directory will automatically update the Management Portal Login screen accordingly. However today it doesn’t automatically update the Developer Portal login page.  Whilst perhaps an oversight, it is very easy to fix manually when you know how. As result you can have a login that looks like: The rest of this blog will show what’s needed to fix the problem. The behaviour of the API Platform’s login pages for the Management and Developer Portals are controlled from the Oracle Cloud Management tier (rather than the API one specifically). Therefore you’ll need to login to your Identity Cloud instance and navigate to the management console and open the side bar. With that we need to open up the details about the applications. When you select the applications menu you’ll get something like this: Read the complete article here.

Notifications from Oracle API Platform Cloud Service by Phil Wilkins

There are circumstances in which notifications from the Oracle API Platform CS could be seen as desirable.  For example, if you wish to ensure that the developers are defining good APIs and not accidentally implementing APIs that hit the OWASP Top 10 for APIs. Then you will probably configure things such that developer users can design the APIs, configure the policies, but only request an API to be deployed. However, presently notifications through mechanisms such as email or via collaboration platforms such as Slack aren’t available.  But implementing a solution isn’t difficult.  For the rest of this blog we’ll explore how this might be implemented, complete with a Slack implementation. The execution of any such activity effectively needs to follow the basic pattern of … detect the condition requiring a notification, such as a deployment request, gather the information so we can provide a meaningful request, for example, the API name being requested.

Simplified OAuth Config for Oracle Integration Cloud REST API using Postman! By Manish Kumar Gupta

This blog will be discussing very specific use case requirement which is more developer oriented and providing a quicker and efficient solution to invoke Oracle Integration REST API using OAuth access_token for testing purpose. As an integration developer time to time you need to invoke Oracle Integration REST API to test API functionality. All the REST API in OIC needs a header parameter called “Authorization” which must needs to hold a valid access_token value in this format “Bearer access_token“. In above format, “Bearer” is static world, However, access_token is the token value which we get after successfully OAuth Authentication from Oracle Identity Cloud Service.  Getting access_token from IDCS using code credentials flow is multi steps and cumbersome process. However, developer can leverage Postman environment and variable features to simplify the process of getting access_token. That’s what, I will be covering in this blog. Before I proceed further, I must redirect you to read my colleague blog which has greater in-depth explanation about what is IDCS, how IDCS govern security aspect of all Oracle PaaS products such as Oracle Integration Cloud, Analytics Cloud, Digital Assistant and so on and OAuth client and token generation process etc. I am recommending you to read his blog because I will be using few artefacts e.g. IDCS URL, Client ID, Client Secret etc which we need to get from IDCS OAuth Client Application as per the process given in his blog.

Calling JD Edwards Orchestrations from Oracle Integration: Quickly and Easily by Prakash Masand

  Background JD Edwards orchestrations empowers army of citizen developers/business analyst resources to design business applications REST APIs without writing a single line of code. JD Edwards orchestrations exposes business process steps tied together graphically through the robust semantics of REST standards. JD Edwards orchestrations are great way to simplify, integrate and automate repeated tasks through digital technologies. JD Edwards orchestrations are executed at AIS Server however they are designed via a tool called as Orchestrator studio, with JD Edwards tools release 9.2.4.0, Orchestrator studio is also part of AIS Server that further simplifies deployment of Orchestrator studio. Orchestrator studio is a low code, no code tool that allows business analyst to leverage their knowledge of business applications and create the flow using series of application tasks/steps and expose them as a REST end point. As JD Edwards AIS/Orchestrations are gaining traction & momentum, it has become tool of choice for JD Edwards customers who are looking to Integrate JD Edwards with Cloud SaaS applications, PaaS services or any other on premise applications. Sample Use Case Consider you want to return all sales orders that are at a particular state lets say 540 i.e. Print Pick in JD Edwards Sales Order application. This means you need an REST end point that takes Sales Order state as an input with default being 540, and return in response array of JD Edwards sales orders. This information can be consumed to update any other third party applications with the state of the orders, or can be simply consumed from process application to show the list of the orders. Basic Ingredients JD Edwards Installation with below components (Latest and great EnterpriseOne Tools Release is recommended, with least being 9.2.1.x). Orchestrator Studio AIS Server.

Help Wanted: How A Grocer Finds Workers Willing To ‘Do It All’ With A Smile by Linda Currey

  To work in Britain’s Co-op food stores, employees have to do a little bit of everything during any given shift. To keep the Co-op convenience stores and neighborhood markets running smoothly, staffers may accept deliveries, unpack boxes of groceries, flowers, and household items, stock the shelves, clean up spills, or run the registers, all while welcoming customers. New hires need the qualifications to do it all. Workers restock shelves in one of Britain’s Co-op food stores. “It’s hard work,” says Yvonne Foster, head of resourcing services for the Co-op. It’s hard work for Foster and her team as well, who need to recruit and retain the company’s 65,000 employees across the United Kingdom. The Co-op is as interesting as the people it’s trying to recruit. In business since 1844, it is owned by its 4.6 million members, who get a 5% discount in the shops, as well as access to Co-op offerings for insurance, healthcare, and funeral services.

Microprocess Considerations by Jan Kettenis

In this article I discuss some considerations when applying the Microprocess Architecture, and how those can impact the design of the process. As pointed out in the article about the Microprocess Architecture, one should carefully consider if this is the right architecture for the process application to create. Considering the implications (for example one single business process can end up comprising multiple process applications) it should not be considered to be a "one-size fits all" kind of architecture. Guidelines that can help you to determine if and where is a fit, are the following: Do process instances have a longer time span during which one must be able to migrate it (in one way or another) to a newer version? Is the process expected to change often, implying multiple versions will be active at the same time? Does it concern a complex business process, where business functions can be executed isolated from each other? Are multiple business units involved in the flow?

Jarvis Pizzeria: How to manage Masterdata of a DM (part 1) by Marcel van de Glind

  We have implemented the decision table below in a Decision Model (see Using a DM in PCS) and we have made the Decision Model accessible through an integration (see Using a DM in ICS). But now let’s look at the data in this table. Suppose that it turns out that deliveries by scooter at distances above 5 Km turn out to be faster than expected (because this is usually outside built-up areas, where there is less traffic). For this we have to adjust the CalculateDeliveryTime in line 6 of the table from 20 to e.g. 18. Once this is done we must activate a new snapshot. Because the integration of the previous blog refers to the LATEST snaphot version, no further adjustments are needed. The Decision integration can be used unchanged. Changing the CalculateDeliveryTime, but also the Distance range are data where we can imagine that they will change regularly. The question is whether we want to reactivate the Decision for each adjustment? If the answer to this question is “No”, we must see if this can be done differently. Is there an alternative? “Yes” there is. We will explain that further in the remainder of this blog. The first thing we do is take a closer look at the decision table. Read the complete article here.

Integration Patterns – Publish/Subscribe (Part1) by Daniel Martins Teixeira

  Broadcasting, Publish/Subscribe, Distributed Messaging, One-to-many, these are just some of the names referring to the same integration pattern, which is one of the most powerful available for connecting multiple systems. In a nutshell, this pattern is about: Source System publishes a message Target Systems subscribe to receiving that message This enables the propagation of that message into all the target systems that subscribe to it, as illustrated in the below picture. This pattern is not new, in fact, it’s been around for decades. It powered distributed systems with its inherent loose coupling and independence.  Publishers and subscribers are loosely coupled which allows for the systems to run independently of each other. In the traditional client-server architecture, a client cannot send a message to a server that is offline. In the Pub/Sub model, message delivered is not conditioned by the server availability.

Oracle Integration release March 2020

What’s New for Oracle Integration? Learn about the new and changed features of Oracle Integration: Integration Features Feature Description Published Oracle NetSuite Adapter - Asynchronous API support The Oracle NetSuite Adapter is one of the key adapters in the Oracle Integration portfolio. Oracle Integration continues to focus on enriching this adapter by targeting NetSuite customer needs. The current Oracle NetSuite Adapter in Oracle Integration already allows the integration specialist to configure the Oracle NetSuite Adapter to make real-time invocations to NetSuite to perform create, read, update, and delete operations and perform extensive search operations on standard and custom business objects. With this update, support is added for submitting all of the above operations in an asynchronous mode. This capability allows integrations to seamlessly perform bulk imports of large data sets into NetSuite and bulk data extracts from NetSuite in a declarative way. See Oracle NetSuite Adapter Capabilities and Implement Common Patterns Using the Oracle NetSuite Adapter in Using the Oracle NetSuite Adapter with Oracle Integration. March 25 Apache Kafka Adapter - Mutual TLS and TLS security policy support The Apache Kafka Adapter supports the Mutual TLS and TLS security policies when configuring a connection. See Configure Connection Security in Using the Apache Kafka Adapter with Oracle Integration. March 25 Connectivity Agent - Automatic upgrade on Windows The connectivity agent is a pivotal part of Oracle Integration, enabling integrations and the exchange of information between on-premises applications and Oracle Integration. Customers currently running the connectivity agent on Windows have been required to upgrade the connectivity agent manually. This created a challenge for customers trying to keep updated to the latest connectivity agent version. The automatic upgrade feature relieves customers of this requirement. Customers are required to manually upgrade for one last time, after which the connectivity agent automatically upgrades itself and no further manual upgrade is required. March 19 REST Adapter - Multiple resources and verbs support Oracle Integration announces yet another structural improvement in the REST Adapter. The REST Adapter had previously supported publishing only a single resource with a single verb in inbound orchestrated integrations. This created an impediment for creating pure resource-based APIs in Oracle Integration and forced integration architects to create multiple integrations to support different verbs and subresources. The REST Adapter now supports adding multiple verbs to the resource and adding subresources in the inbound definition. As an example, assume you want to have a single resource to support different combinations of operations on a sales order resource through multiple verbs and subresources. You can now design such an orchestrated integration and pick the verb, resource, or subresource from the client as desired using a single resource URI. See REST Adapter Capabilities in Using the REST Adapter with Oracle Integration and Receive Requests for Multiple Resources in a Single REST Adapter Trigger Connection in Using Integrations in Oracle Integration. March 16 Oracle Asserter - Integration testing framework support The Oracle Asserter testing framework enables you to record tests of integration instances and replay them to reproduce potential issues. You can simulate the behavior of both a trigger connection and the response from an invoke connection. You can also export integrations with recordings and import and test the integration in a different environment (for example, move it from a design environment to a test environment). You can also submit recordings to Oracle for analysis of errors. See Test Integration Instances in Using Integrations in Oracle Integration. March 13 Notification actions - Attachment support You can add attachments to emails in a notification action. See Send Notification Emails During Stages of the Integration with a Notification Action in Using Integrations in Oracle Integration. March 13 Invoking co-located, active integrations from a parent integration You can invoke a co-located (child), active integration from the parent integration that you are designing through use of the local integration adapter. Co-located means the integration is running on the same host instance or in the same domain.

How SOA Suite Adapter Can Help Leverage your On-premises Investments by Vijaya Bhat

  The SOA Suite Adapter on Oracle Integration (OIC) enables you to take advantage of the latest feature rich adapters on OIC, while leveraging your existing investments on SOA Suite and Service Bus. It provides a rich design-time experience to create a single connection to SOA Suite / Service Bus, browse through the services running on them, and create integrations. For runtime, it relies on the standard SOAP and REST Adapters with or without the Connectivity Agent, depending on how the SOA Suite / Service Bus is accessible over the network. The current SOAP and REST adapters on OIC already provide integration to these services, but with this new adapter, you can do away with the hassles of multiple connections or fetching service metadata manually. The SOA Suite adapter supports connectivity to: Oracle SOA Suite and/or Oracle Service Bus hosted on-premise Oracle SOA Suite and/or Oracle Service Bus hosted on SOA Cloud Services Configuring SOA Suite Adapter to connect to a SOA Suite / Service Bus instance In the connection palette, select the SOA Suite Adapter. Provide a meaningful name for this connection and click on 'Create'. This opens up the page where the connection details can be configured. Read the complete article here.
