BPM Suite 12c: Oracle Adaptive Case Management: Monitoring Case Events by Maarten Smeets

clip_image002Adaptive Case Management (ACM) is an interesting addition to Oracle BPM Suite which has been introduced in 11.1.1.7. Adaptive Case Management is suitable to model complex work-flows in which there is no set order of activities taking place. This allows more control to the end user on what to do when.
When a case is started, it is a running process in the SOA infrastructure. The main component is Oracle Business Rules which governs (among other things) the availability of activities and when certain process milestones are achieved. The case API allows you to query the case events and milestones (how you can expose the API as a service is described here and here by Roger Goossens).
Sometimes people want to obtain information about cases such as;

  • in how many cases has a certain activity been executed?
  • in which cases has a certain milestone been reached?

Cases can crash, be restarted, migrated, aborted, purged, etc. Sometimes you might not want to depend on the running case being there to provide the information you want. Also using the API every time you want certain information might put a serious strain on your system. Using sensors or BAM might help but they require an investment to implement and are still manual implementations with no guarantee you can obtain information in the future you did not think you would need in the present/past.

Publish Case Events
Luckily Oracle has provided the perfect solution for monitoring case events! You can publish case events to the Event Delivery Network (read here 31.17.2 How to Publish Case Events). This can easily be monitored by for example a BPEL process, which can store the information in a custom table. Read the complete article here.

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.
