SOA Suite 12c - Composite Lazy Loading by Adam Desjardin

clip_image002A new feature in SOA Suite 12c is composite lazy loading.  This feature allows the components, WSDLs, and XSDs for a composite to be loaded as needed instead of at startup.  This can help reduce start up time of the SOA servers from possibly as high as 30 minutes for domains with a large number of composites deployed, down to just a few minutes.  We have worked with several customers who run SOA Suite 11g with hundreds of deployed composites. Many of the composites may be retired or previous versions simply for maintaining compatibility.  Once utilizing SOA 12c, those customers will no longer have slow server start up times and can accomplish restarts much more quickly with less downtime for each node.

Enabling and Disabling Lazy Loading at the SOA-INFRA Level

Composite lazy loading and lazy deployment are both enabled at the soa-infra level by default in 12c.

You can find these settings by opening EM and right clicking on your domain and selecting System MBean Browser Read the complete article here.

Simplifying Error Handling with Custom XPath Function by Dan Reynebeau

clip_image001How many times have you developed error handling logic in a BPEL process and want to collect error information to pass to an error handler service?  There are many xpath functions that are currently available and can be utilized individually to collect all the necessary data, however this can become a time consuming task when you have several catch blocks and many processes.  This is a case where re-use is a must.  Simplifying the collection of the error data will ensure that the error handling is completed and performed in a consistent manner across processes.

Re-using the logic doesn’t imply copying the logic to another process, this leads to maintenance problems since we will inherently forget every place it was copied.  You could create small utility BPEL processes that manage the logic but that can be a bit heavy weight and probably overkill.

Custom XPath functions come to the rescue and solve this problem by providing a framework to generate a custom java class that can perform the collection of all the error data and return a XML document in the structure of the specific error handler.

Now we know we want to create a custom XPath function to populate the following CommonErrorHandler.xsd, so here are the steps required. Read the complete article here.

Stream Explorer Patch Update 2

clip_image002Today we posted the latest Stream Explorer Patch Update 2 on our Oracle Technology Network (OTN) Downloads page.

The attached document highlights the software updates and in addition, new samples are now available that you can have automatically included in your user experience.

Watch out! Oracle Stream Explorer Version 2 is in the pipe, scheduled to be showcased at Oracle Openworld San Francisco 2015, so feature rich I would take all day to describe, but in our opinion, it will take this technology to a whole new level, challenging competitors to even keep up.

Groovy Time! How to use XML dateTime and duration in BPM 12c by Jan Kettenis

clip_image001

In this article I show some examples of handling XML dateTime and durations in Groovy in the context of a Oracle BPM 12c application. Working with dates and durations in Java has always been painful. Mainly because date and time is a complex thing, with different formats and time zones and all, but I sometimes wonder if it has not been made overly complex. Anyway. Working with XML dates is even more complex because the limited support by XPath functions. Too bad because in BPM applications that work with dates this has to be done very often, and as a result I very often see the need to create all kinds of custom XPath functions to mitigate that.
This issue of complexity is no different for Groovy scripting in Oracle BPM 12c. And let handling of dates be a typical use case for using Groovy scripting because of this limited support by XPath. Therefore, to get you started (and help myself some next time) I would like to share a couple of Groovy code snippets for working with XML dates and durations that may be useful. These example are based on working with the XML dateTime type, and do not handle with the complexity of time zones and different formats. In my practice this is 99% of the use cases that I see.
In my opinion you still should limit using Groovy to handle dates and to the minimum, and rather use custom XPath functions, or create a Java library which you can can import in Groovy. But when you have to, this just might come in handy.

Instantiate an XML Date

If you have an XML element of type dateTime, you use an XmlCalender object. An XmlCalender object with the current time can instantiated as shown below: Read the complete article here.

How to withdraw tasks and handle them in Oracle BPM by Jan van Zoggel

clip_image001If you want to withdraw a Human Task in Oracle BPM there are multiple options. This blog post will first show 3 options and then explain how to model your Oracle BPM process to anticipate on the result of a withdrawn task.

1. The BPM Workspace

Using the default Oracle BPM WorkSpace to withdraw a task:

2. Using the TaskService

If you use a custom front-end (instead of the default Oracle BPM Workspace) you can use the Oracle SOA Suite TaskQueryService & TaskService to handle your tasks. In the TaskService there are operations named withdraw and withdrawTasks to either withdraw 1 or multiple tasks. The example below shows a withdrawTask operation request message. Read the complete article here.
