Poster: Adaptive Case Management (ACM) in Practice

Knowledge-driven processes are typically unpredictable in their execution. Experts working on them decide what the next best action to take is. This is in contrast to traditional BPM, in which all possible paths of a process are predetermined and modeled into the process. Case management is a way to control and implement these unstructured processes. With the poster below we’d like to bring some of the key aspects of Adaptive Case Management (ACM) on one page. Special thanks to Danilo Schmiedel


Please feel free to download the PDF-version if you are interested in (login required):

  • What is ACM?
  • Why should I use ACM?
  • How can ACM user interfaces look like?
  • What are the main building blocks of an ACM solution?
  • How to visualize ACM cases with CMMN 1.0?

Manual Recovery Mechanisms in SOA Suite and AIA by Shreenidhi Raghuram

Introduction

Integration flows can fail at run-time with a variety of errors. The cause of these failures could be either Business errors or System errors.

When Synchronous Integration Flows fail, they are restarted from the beginning. On the other hand, Asynchronous Integration flows when they error can potentially be resubmitted/recovered from designated/pre-configured milestones within the flow. These milestones could be persistence points like queues topics or database tables, where the state of the flow was last persisted. Recovery is a mechanism whereby a faulted Asynchronous Flow can be rerun from such a persistence milestone.

1The SOA Suite 11g and AIA products provides various Automated and Manual recovery mechanisms to recover from asynchronous fault scenarios. They differ based on the SOA component that encounters the error. For instance, recovering from a BPEL fault may be quite different than recovering from a Resequencer fault. In this blog, we look at the various Manual Recovery mechanisms and options available to an end user. Manual recovery mechanisms require an Admin user to take appropriate action on the faulted instance from the Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control [EM FMWC Console].

The intention of this blog is to provide a quick reference for Manual Recovery of Faults within the SOA and AIA contexts. It aims to present some of the valuable information regarding Manual recovery in one place. These are currently available across many sources such as SOA Developers Guide, SOA Admin Guide, AIAFP Developers Guide and AIAFP Infrastructure and Utilities Guide.

Next we look at the various Manual recovery mechanisms available in SOA Suite 11g and AIA, starting with the BPEL Message Recovery.

BPEL Message Recovery

To understand the BPEL Message Recovery, let us briefly look into how BPEL Service engine performs asynchronous processing. Asynchronous BPEL processes use an intermediate Delivery Store in the SOA Infrastructure Database to store the incoming request. The message is then picked up and further BPEL processing happens in an Invoke Thread.

The Invoke Thread is one among the free threads from the ‘Invoke Thread Pool’ configured for BPEL Service Engine. The processing of the message from the delivery Store onwards until the next dehydration in the BPEL process or the next commit point in the flow constitutes a transaction. Figure below shows at a high level the Asynchronous request handling by BPEL Invoke Thread. Read the complete article here.

BPEL, retrieving the validate activity fault message by Eric Elzinga

The ‘Validate’ activity in Oracle BPEL gives us the functionality to validate variables again schema definitions.

When using it in your bpel process you will get a nice informative message in the ‘Flow trace’.

validate1

When you are using some generic error hospital functionality you also want this message to be available in there.

First try would be, add a Scope around the activity and catch the ‘invalidVariables’ System Fault.

When using a getFaultString on the fault variable or after assigning it to your own fault variable you will see the fault stack will be empty.

validate2

SOA Suite 11g: Consuming web service which enforce security policies on their WSDL files by esentri

Concrete WSDL VersionThe basic principle behind a Service Oriented Architecture is to orchestrate functional building blocks, primarily web services, in order to achieve a solution which fulfills the given requirements. In order to create a robust solution using Oracle SOA Suite several best practices emerged, one being decoupling web services in order to overcome dependencies during server/composite startup. A general approach for achieving this best practice is to use abstract and concrete WSDLs in combination.

An example for a working reference definition within the composite could look like follows:

<reference name="FooBarService" ui:wsdlLocation="oramds:/apps/com/foo/v1/bar.wsdl">

  <interface.wsdl interface="http://foo.com/BarService#wsdl.interface(BarService)"/>

  <binding.ws port="http://foo.com/BarService#wsdl.endpoint(BarService/FooBarEndpoint)"

    soapVersion="1.1"

    location="http://foo.com:7001/soa-infra/services/foo/bar/FooBarEndpoint?WSDL">

  </binding.ws>

</reference>

On a recent project we ran into some problems while implementing this best practice as some web services we had to consume not only protected their operations but also their WSDLs using basic authentication web security. Although we were able to access the operations by providing the security credentials within WebLogic Server using the Credential Store Framework (CSF), the solution never managed to successfully access the secured WSDL files.

After trying several approaches to overcome this problem, we implemented a workaround by storing an abstract WSDL within the shared MDS project as well as a concrete WSDL within the composite project in order to access the affected web services. We stored the concrete WSDLs within a wsdl folder in the project. Read the complete article here.
