Oracle OpenWorld 2013: First glimpses of the new SOA Suite 12c by Lucas Jellema

During this week’s Oracle OpenWorld Conference, we were given some sneak peeks into the short term future of the Oracle SOA Suite. During various roadmap sessions, on the demo grounds as well as in the keynote session by Thomas Kurian (the replay of which you can see here, new features were described and imagedemonstrated, allowing us to get a fairly good overview of what is going to come for SOA Suite - later in 2013 and sometime in 2014 (probably the first half of that year).

The SOA Suite plays an important part in the three themes Thomas Kurian set down for the Fusion Middleware suite of products: support for mobility, cloud and business user empowerment.

Some of the highlighted new aspects of Oracle SOA Suite are:

  • Adapters to connect from on-premise to in-the-cloud – specifically targeting SalesForce, RightNow and also providing an SDK to create custom integrations into the cloud (the first cloud adapters will be released on 11g, before the end of the year)
  • Mobile enablement by exposing RESTful services that communicate using JSON as well as adding the capability to call out to such services (12c functionality)
  • Enhanced functionality on Exalogic (of course it runs faster on Exalogic, up to 20 times)
  • Modular runtime with a lighter footprint.

A brief demonstration of the Cloud Adapter was given by Demed L’Her during said keynote. The next screenshot shows the Adapter wizard for the Cloud Adapter.

It allows the developer to pick a specific operation for a specific business object exposed by RightNow (or SalesForce) (the adapter knows about the APIs exposed by RightNow and SalesForce):image

This next screenshot shows the adapter that is used in SOA Suite 12c to expose a RESTful service on top of an SCA Composite or a Service Bus service: Read the full article here.

SOA Suite definitive guide to: The UMS adapter (11.1.1.7) by Amis

This week Oracle released it sixth patchset (11.1.1.7) of the SOA Suite and it’s IDE JDeveloper. In this new release there are some small changes in the IDE, but there are also some mayor changes like two new adapters; healthcare and the UMS (User Messaging Service). This blog will look into the use of the UMS adapter as a inbound and outbound service in a SOA Composite. This adapter was already available as beta in PS5 but now it is an official adapter.

By using the UMS (User Messaging Service) adapter as an inbound service you can initiate a instance of a SOA composite by receiving a email message on one or more configured recipients. By using the UMS adapter as an outbound service you can send email messages to one or more recipients with an optional option to send data message as an attachment.

Scroll to: Inbound UMS adapter | Custom Java CallOut | Outbound UMS adapter | Server Configuration | Testing Adapter

Let’s get into the basics

There are two parts to this adapter; one is the implementation in your SOA composite and the second one is the configuration of the USM adapter that is deployed within Weblogic. The implementation uses inbound and outbound connection factories which need to be configured in Weblogic before the SOA Composite is deployed.

Let’s say the context of this example is to register new employees, created in the CRM system, to go through the SOA Suite to provision other systems. Changes made by one of these systems need to be pushed back to the CRM system. The CRM system can only be coupled via email.

Inbound UMS adapter

First we look into the implementation within the SOA Composite using JDeveloper 11.1.1.7.  For this example just create a new SOA project with an empty composite. Let’s start with the UMS adapter as an inbound service. In the composite editor drag the UMS adapter service adapter from the component palette to the exposed services swim lane. Read the full article here.

BPM 11g PS6 the support for Adaptive Case Management that Oracle has added to Oracle BPM Suite in this latest release means a breakthrough – Lucas Jellema, Amis

"Depending on the industry, organization and type of business process and its actors, a process can be iron clad and straightforward to capture in a BPMN definition. However, in many environments, the business process - or part of the process - is not fixed. Which steps are to be executed and in which order: it depends on the situation. Typically a an experienced professional makes the call as to how to proceed through the process - using predefined process activities and sub-process. This type of business process is indicated with the term 'case imagemanagement'. The role of BPM and the BPM engine is somewhat different because in this approach each process instance can be in part a predefined flow and in part a sequence of activities determined by a knowledge worker or even by (real time decisions based on actions from) consumers. The support for Adaptive Case Management that Oracle has added to Oracle BPM Suite in this latest release means a breakthrough in the support for (partially) unstructured business processes. AMIS is very keen on using this feature for a wide range of organizations structuring, streamlining and optimizing their business processes."

"The BPM Process Composer brings business users and analysts closer together with designers and developers of BPM processes. The browser based user interface of Process Composer shows the same information that the technical specialists work on. With the latest release of Oracle BPM 11g, the Process Composer allows users to simulate a business process - even before it has been fully implemented - in order to find bottlenecks and discover optimization opportunities. Improvements to the process - documentation, annotations as well as real process enhancements - can be made through the Process Composer. Two new features are especially interesting to AMIS and our customers: The new Process Player option allows users to validate, test and playback the business process in an easy way within the composer. Note that all process activities need not have been implemented yet to already play the process, ensuring that its design meets the business and customer needs. The new WebForms option in Process Composer allows the creation of simple and effective user interfaces for human tasks in the business process that do not require rich and complex pages leveraging data from backend data sources. This feature will facilitate the rapid prototyping of business processes including human-process interactions for example for quick decisions." Lucas Jellema, Amis

Oracle SOA Suite 11g PS 5 introduces BPEL with conditional correlation for aggregation scenarios by AMIS

imageNot too long ago, one of my customers had the following requirement: a file with invoice-entries has to be processed each night; for all invoice entries for the same customer, we would like to start a single BPEL process instance that aggregates the entries and creates a single invoice. To process the entire file, one BPEL process instance needs to be created for every unique customer who has invoice entries in that file. Note however that the Inbound File Adapter knows nothing about the customers or about previously started process instances, it will simply invoke a BPEL process ‘service’ for each line it processes.

The figure illustrates the situation. Note however that the invoice entries need not be sorted, and could well look like this. Read the article here.
