To make your New Year successful, we would like to invite you to our Fusion Middleware Partner Community Forum 2013. This is the best platform to learn and become certified on middleware. Our major tracks include SOA, BPM and ADF & WebLogic. If you are also an expert in middleware, you can learn more about new products and features like BPM PS6 or b2b and event processing. The event is also a great opportunity to network within the partner community and with the Oracle product management team. Make sure you register asap – as only 120 seats are available this year!

In this newsletter edition you will find two major topics: b2b and cloud computing. On the b2b side Martien van den Akker and the A-Team published a series of articles. Additional we made the latest b2b samples and training material available at our SOA Community Workspace (SOA Community membership required.

On the cloud side Bruce Tierney published an article on "Cloud Integration in Minutes” - True or False? and at the OTN Architect Day a series of podcasts was recorded: Dude, What's My Role? and Migrating Mission-Critical Applications to the Cloud and All Clouds Are Not Equal and Cloud Security and Auditing.
In our monthly BPM section Ajay Khanna shared insight on what will happen in the BPM space in 2013. Geoffroy de Lamalle published a video “eProseed Delivers Processes Skillfully with Oracle BPM Suite" Want to promote your BPM success - submit a BPM eference request!

Getting to Know Oracle Fusion Middleware

A quick tour of the broad set of products under the Oracle Fusion Middleware umbrella.

Simon Haslam, Principal Consultant, Veriton & myself published an middleware article in the UKOUG Scene magazine.  This article arose because Jürgen Kress’ “Fusion Middleware Architecture Overview
abstract was one of the most highly rated submissions for UKOUG 2012, so it seemed there
might be an interest in trying to clarify the products that Oracle calls ‘Fusion Middleware.’
Little did we realise how many products there were…

Fusion Middleware – what is it?

‘Middleware,’ as its name suggests, is a generic term for the layers of software (or ‘software glue’ – see http://www.middleware.org/whatis.html) that sit between an application and, within enterprise software, typically services and resources like the Oracle Database. Oracle Fusion Middleware started off as the Java EE application server (Internet Application Server) but evolved to cover pretty much all software that isn’t the database or applications!


Why is Fusion Middleware important?

Middleware provides infrastructure services to enable applications to run. For example, if you want a ‘container’ (i.e. a server with very specific APIs) to run your enterprise Java application, and most likely connect to a relational database, you use WebLogic Server; if your application wants to use web services somewhere out in the ether it calls the Oracle Service Bus. As you can tell these Middleware services are vital to the successful and continuing operation of your application. For a long

time Middleware has been seen as the poor relation to the database (which holds the irreplaceable business data) but this is changing as Middleware is now providing integration of, and decoupling from, the underlying resources, plus there is an increased demand for 24/7 (or close) availability of applications for use by customers, partners.. read the full article here and get your Scene magazine copy as a UKOUG member .

BPM 11g – Dynamic Task Assignment with Multi-level Organization Units By Mark Foster

I have seen several requirements to have a more granular level of task assignment in BPM 11g based on some value in the data passed to the process. Parametric Roles is normally the first port of call to try to satisfy this requirement, but in this blog we will show how a lot of use-cases can be satisfied by the easier to implement and flexible Organization Unit.

The Use-Case

Task assignment is to an approval group containing several users. At runtime, a location value in the input data determines which of the particular users the task is ultimately assigned to.

In this case we use the Demo Community referenced in the SOA Admin Guide, and specifically the "LoanAnalyticGroup" which contains three users; "szweig", "mmitch" & "fkafka". In our scenario we would like to assign a task to "szweig" if the input data specifies that the location is "JapanCentral", to "fkafka" if the location is "JapanNorth" and to "mmitch" if "JapanSouth", and to all of them if the location is "Japan" i.e.

ACM – Adaptive Case Management by Peter Paul

Adaptive case management (ACM) is also known as “dynamic case management”, is getting a lot of interest lately. BPM vendors identified this need while engaging with companies to manage existing business processes. And so ACM tools are emerging as complements to BPM. They provide a human-centric combination of process, content and collaboration to support knowledge workers to be more productive.

What is case management?


Case management is a way of organizing the work and activities in a company around a case instead of around a process or data. A Case is the coordination of multiple tasks – planned or unplanned - and associated content, towards a concrete objective or goal. Case oriented systems allow more flexibility and adaptability compared to process oriented solutions. Case oriented systems are better equipped to handle unstructured or less structured data compared to data oriented solutions.

Why would you need case management?

You would typically need ACM in a situation where you want activities to be managed, activities don’t have a fixed pre-determined sequence (there are unplanned parts), activities need access to content (both structured and unstructured data), and humans determine what need to happen while executing a process and/or need to interact with other experts (collaboration to solve the case).
