Whether you are a Developer, an Architect or a Business Manager, OER has a lot to offer to help you make the most of your SOA initiatives - a Service Catalogue, Automated Publishing, Lifecycle Management, Policies and Reporting, to name a few. OER is a powerful and flexible tool that you can leverage to manage all aspects of SOA Governance - People, Processes and Tools.

What’s more - we will also talk about our popular OER Rapid Start 30-day program delivered exclusively by Oracle Partners or Oracle Consulting. OER Rapid Start is a 30-day program, delivered to many of our customers, to kick start their  SOA Governance initiative right from engaging the right stakeholders, defining lifecycles, publishing their services to tracking ROI on their SOA investments.

The session will be lab-based giving you hands-on experience on the most popular customer use cases with OER.

Trainer: Yogesh Sontakke.

Customized BPM 11g PS6 Workspace Application by Andrejus Baranovskis

I am quite often using customized BPM 11g workspace application integrated into ADF 11g custom application. You can download it for BPM 11g PS5 from my previous blog: Tips & Tricks How to Run Oracle BPM 11g PS5 Workspace from Custom ADF 11g Application.

Standard BPM 11g workspace ADF task flow is customized with MDS - ADF 11g PS5 Application with Customized BPM Worklist Task Flow (MDS Seeded Customization). I would like to present today updated workspace application to BPM 11g PS6. The reason to migrate customized BPM workspace to PS6 was because I am often using it during ADF/BPM integration trainings. Also I will be posting future posts in ADF/BPM integration area based on upgraded PS6 sample application.

Here you can download new sample tested with BPM 11g PS6 - adfbpmapp_ps6.zip. ADF 11g PS6 comes with new look&feel - new ADF skin Skyros. New ADF skin and updated UI layout gives new look for BPM 11g workspace ADF task flow. Workspace ADF task flow shipped with BPM 11g PS6 release is lighter, works faster and looks better. Do you see Register button next to task list? This is custom button added through MDS customization: Read the full article here.

Functional Testing Business Processes in Oracle BPM Suite 11g by Arun Pareek

imageOver the last couple of projects, I have been trying to establish a set of methodologies around initiation, development, deployment and management of business processes using Oracle BPM Suite 11g. In a series of posts, I will be taking about a lot of problem areas that can be effectively tackled in order to deliver a highly successful BPM project using this technology. The areas I intend to cover are around design and modelling best practices, team development, delivery methodologies, testing, troubleshooting, automation, performance tuning and operational management to name a few. However in terms of priority and the nature of pain experienced in each of these aforementioned areas, I am of the opinion that a great chunk is attributed to testing and maintaining code quality. Business processes are in constant need to be truly dynamic more than ever so that planned as well as ad-hoc changes can be promoted seamlessly. Also with Oracle BPM Suite 11g promising greater involvement of business users in terms of making deployable changes to the processes, ensuring that functionality and quality of the build/changes is maintained is very crucial. In the previous blog post, I had elaborated on unit testing strategies for business processes and methods of achieving them from the Oracle BPM Suite 11g studio. Proper unit testing is important in terms of validating that the core logical outcomes of a business processes are executed as expected. Read the full article here.

BPM PS6 video showing process lifecycle in more detail by Mark Nelson

imageIf the five minute video that I shared last week has whet your appetite for more, then this might be just what you are looking for!

The same international team who made that video - Andrew Dorman, Tanya Williams, Carlos Casares, Joakim Suarez and James Calise - have also created a thirty minute version that walk you through in much more detail and shows you, from the perspective of various business stakeholders involved in process modeling, exactly how BPM PS6 supports the end to end process lifecycle. The video centres around a Retail Leasing use case, and follows how Joakim the Business Analyst, Pablo the Process Owner, and James the Process Analyst take the process from conception to runtime, solely through BPM Composer, without the need for IT or the use of JDeveloper.
