Service Bus 12c – Exposing a Pipeline as a REST Service by Jennie DeRosa

clip_image002Within Oracle Service Bus 12c, there are several ways to implement a pipeline as a REST service.

One approach is to REST enable an existing SOAP service. In this scenario, a pipeline is supported by both SOAP and REST based interactions. A video that provides a good overview of the required steps to implement this can be found here.

Another way is to derive it from a pipeline WSDL (REST bindings in OSB 12c are based on a WSDL document). The steps below detail the configurations required to accomplish this.

The first step is to create a pipeline that is a WSDL-based service. If the WSDL does not exist, it can be generated from a schema. To do this, select the ‘Create a WSDL’ icon in the Pipeline Service creation wizard to open the Create WSDL dialog.  Before selecting ‘Finish’, be sure the ‘Expose as a Proxy Service’ is not checked, since we will be generating a REST based proxy in a later step.

SOA Framework by Link Consulting

clip_image002Link has developed a SOA Development framework based on Oracle Service Bus and SOA Suite – Link SOA Framework (LSF) – that establishes an harmonious integration between SOA Mediation, Development, Governance and Indicators, in a way that all enterprise services follow the same best practices with minimum effort

It consists in a set of patterns, rules, and mechanisms that ensure agile development through well-defined principles. It offers added value on:

  • Interoperability Increase – through Common Information Model
  • Supports Multi-supplier strategy
  • Business and IT alignment
  • Speeds up time to market
  • Agility Increase

LSF has been developed as a response to customer and our own needs during the development of several SOA and SOA Governance Projects. LSF’s technical added-value is:

  • Platform management ease, mainly in support and resource reuse;
  • Technology independent concepts;
  • Functionally scalable, flexible and auditable;
  • Realistic estimations;
  • Patterns, Rules and Development Mechanisms;
  • Agile development
  • Service execution traceability
  • Logging and Reporting native capability extension
    • Enriched real-time monitoring
  • Service execution Data and indicators
    • Historic analysis
    • Indicators
    • Real-time monitoring
  • SOA Governance Alignment
  • Versioning Strategy
  • Error Handling
  • Error Code translation and Reference Data
  • Structured Namespaces and technical assets’ organization

Customizing Oracle MFT with Java Overview by Dave Berry

clip_image001Overview

Oracle MFT was designed so that the most common features are provided out of the box but when that is not enough, it should be easy enough to extend it using small snippets of customizable code. For the self industrious, you can find all that you need to get started in the Oracle MFT documentation section Processing Transfers with Custom Callouts as shown below.

If you want or need a more detailed drill down of this topic then just read on. As a quick review, remember that all custom callouts are totally reusable and parameterized so any development investment you make is generally a one time cost.

Terminology

There are many use cases and types of custom callout we will discuss here involving what the callout can do plus when and how the callout can be invoked but first a little background and terminology. Callouts is a general term that is used to describe custom java code that can be used while configuring an MFT Transfer in the MFT Designer page. MFT provides out of the box "Actions" such as compress/decompress or encrypt/decrypt that are available and like your custom callouts can all be attached by clicking the <add processing actions> button.

clip_image002

For the rest of this article I will use the term Action as it applies to both out of the box actions and custom callouts.

Types

Actions come in 2 general types: those that need to modify the payload and those that do not. The "Newline Conversion" example in the docs illustrates how to modify a file to change the newline character to or from DOS to Unix. Actions such as this need to modify the content and must implement the PluginOutput method which provides an output stream. Read the complete article here.

Upgrading Oracle SOA Suite from 11g to 12c by Danilo Schmiedel

clip_image002Today I'd like to share my presentation on upgrading Oracle SOA Suite from 11g to 12c. It contains information on how the product evolved the last couple of years. It also explains different upgrade strategies, the difference between in-flight upgrade and migration, important pre-upgrade tasks, the upgrade steps itself and post-upgrade steps.  

Additionally it lists the experiences and upgrade results that we've achieved in two different scenarios: in-flight upgrade as well as migration. Get the presentation here and Watch his video 2 Minute Tip: Upgrading to Oracle SOA Suite 12c

Sensor Networks with Java (Part I) by Enzo

clip_image002End of last year I've started to build a little Sensor Network that I've placed in my house. I never thought that many people are interested in that but I was wrong, nearly every time I did a presentation about that topic many people asked me for a blog post about the project...and here it is :)
First of all this is not really about a Smart Home or something similar, this is simply a project to monitor data (temperature in my case). The original idea was monitoring multiple cold stores which seems to be something that is really useful :)
But because I didn't had the cold stores I've decided to measure the temperature in nearly every room of our house.
The things I was interested in have been the behavior of the room temperature compared to the temperature outside. Does the temperature in the rooms follow the temperature outside of the house and how fast does it follow. To be able to compare those values I had to measure the conditions outside and in inside of the house.
Well measuring is one thing but you also have to analyze the data right? This means I needed to store the data somewhere and also needed to visualize the data somehow. Because I'm working from home I don't have a big server room where I can put a computer that acts as a server so one other requirement was to use as many embedded devices as possible in the whole setup (means for communication, storage, etc.).
Wife factor
One very important (if not most important) factor in the whole project was what I call the "Wife factor". When I've started with the project I've used hardware like Raspberry Pi, BeagleBoneBlack and Arduino Yun to measure the temperature in different rooms in our house. It worked very nice BUT most of these devices have some kind of status led or I/O led which is blinking all the time. In addition all of those devices needed a power supply which means you have to place them close to a power plug. When my wife saw all these lights blinking and wires lying around she was not very amused.
I figured out that as long as she does not see the so called Sensor Nodes everything is fine.
Size matters
That said one thing was pretty clear, the Sensor Nodes have to be small and they should run on batteries...for months!!! I've tried different hardware like Raspberry Pi, Arduino Yun, Arduino + XBee but all of these approaches did not really work out well.
The biggest problem was the need for a power supply which limited the location I could place the Sensor Nodes. In the end I've took a closer look to the XBee itself which looks like follows... Read the complete article here.

Leverage the power of BI Publisher in Cloud integrations Hakan Biroglu

clip_image002By now we are all accustomed to running Applications in the Cloud and it has reached the next phase: extensibility and integrating of the Cloud Applications with other applications in our enterprise architecture. Oracle is investing a lot on this area with PaaS, IaaS, DBaaS, MWaaS, JaaS and everything else that ends with aaS. This will work fine if you are a Sales Cloud customer, where you have the ability to create custom objects, outbound calls, etc.
But what if you're a Cloud ERP or HCM customer? Integration here is currently limited to file based extracts, file based loaders, spreadsheet loaders and web services that have been made available to be consumed externally. In real-time integrations you may be confronted with data needs that are not (yet) available by the web services provided in Cloud Applications, but you also do not the tooling to create custom web services for these needs. Or do you?
Inspired by this blog of FA Developer Relations, I would like to demonstrate how you can create custom real-time data extracts on nearly any data that resides in Fusion, using the PublicReportService
The PublicReportService is an externally available web service that provides you the ability to create, delete, update, schedule and run BI Publisher Reports. What makes this really interesting is the combination of creating your custom datamodel in BI Publisher and the operation to run a Report on this data.

Custom Datamodel

From the Navigator you can access BI Publisher via the menu item Reports and Analytics. From here create a new Report. Read the complete article here.
