What we are going to do in this post, is present some real-life problems and show how to obtain the necessary data, analyze it, and make corrective actions. Oracle Service Bus architecture is centered around an Enterprise Service Bus. The bus provides message delivery services, based on standards including SOAP, HTTP and Java Messaging Service (JMS). It is typically designed for high-throughput, guaranteed message delivery to a variety of service producers and consumers. It supports XML as a native data type, while also offering alternatives for handling other data types. Oracle Service Bus is policy driven and enables us to establish loose coupling between service clients and business services, while maintaining a centralized point of security control and monitoring. It stores persistent policy, proxy service, and related resource configurations in metadata, that can be customized and propagated from development through staging to production environments required. The message-brokering engine accesses this configuration information from its metadata cache.
Oracle Service Bus is an intermediary that processes incoming service request messages, determines routing logic, and transforms these messages for compatibility with other service consumers. It receives messages through a transport protocol such as HTTP(S), JMS, File, and FTP, and sends messages through the same or a different transport protocol. Service response messages follow the inverse path. Thne message processing by Oracle Service Bus is driven by metadata, specified in the message flow definition of a proxy service.
The processing of messages occurs in the following sequence of events:
After a message is sent to an endpoint (either a business service or another proxy service), Oracle Service Bus processes the response message in a similar model as that described in the preceding sequence of events.
No response? How is that possible?
In this case the Oracle Service Bus came to a 'stand-still' for a particular interval. Read the complete article here.
