In a previous blog post, I discussed integrating TO cloud applications, however the use cases above are the reverse i.e. receiving data FROM cloud applications (SaaS) TO on-premise applications/databases
that sit behind a firewall. Oracle SOA Suite is assumed to be
on-premise with with Oracle Service Bus as the mediation and
virtualization layer. The main considerations
for the patterns are are security i.e. shielding enterprise resources;
and scalability i.e. minimizing firewall latency. Let me use an analogy
to help visualize the patterns: the on-premise system is your home -
with your most valuable possessions - and the SaaS app is your favorite
on-line store which regularly ships (inbound calls) various types of
parcels/items (message types/service operations). You need the items at
home (on-premise) but want to safe guard against misguided elements of
society (internet threats) who may masquerade as postal workers and
vandalize property (denial of service?). Let's look at the patterns. Read the complete article here.
