Hybrid integration architectures can be easily implemented, leveraging OIC and SOA Suite. This will be very interesting for existing SOA Suite customers who are moving to the cloud. For example, a customer could have existing integrations running on SOA Suite on-premise that implement orders 2 cash use cases. The customer may adopt a cloud based CRM e.g. Oracle Engagement Cloud or SFDC. She can now leverage OIC and SOA Suite to implement an Opportunity to Cash scenario. OIC responds to the event - new Opportunity created and calls the on-premise integration to do the rest.
Naturally, the interoperability between OIC and SOA Suite is bi-directional. Let's begin with OIC invoking composites, running on SOA Suite.
My setup for this example is as follows -
1. OIC in the Oracle Cloud
2. SOA Suite installed on my laptop - JDeveloper 188.8.131.52 Quickstart. Read the complete article here.
