B2B 12c – Listening Channel activation and deactivation in bulk Bruno Neves Alves

clip_image002With the version 12c of B2B the possibility to activate and deactivate all listening channels in one single command was introduced. Previously, it was necessary to provide the name of the listening channels to perform the action, what, in scenarios with a considerable number of listening channels, made the task ineffective.

Different scenarios can be pointed out where this functionality is extremely useful:

· After importing a B2B configuration the channels are always in deactivated status. This command can be then executed in order to activate all the listening channels in bulk;

· Deactivate all listening channels to stop momentously all message consumption for corrective or preventive reasons into B2B or back-end applications;

· Switching the message consumption between two environments;

The feature is also provided in a command line based approach since is an extension to the already existing feature of enable/disable a particular listening channel. Therefore it is respecting the same prerequisites.

Prior to executing any B2B command line tool is necessary to set the following environment variables: Read the complete article here.

SOA Suite 12c: Topology Suggestions by Jay Kasi

In this article, I make some suggestions and provide opinions on topologies recommended in SOA Suite 12c.

· Typically Service Bus and SOA Suite belong in different tiers in an end to end architecture so they would be in separate domains. However if Service Bus is used primarily for mediating and providing routing for SOA Suite Composites in a domain, it could be in the same domain, but typically in separate clusters for optimum performance and scalability. However it  is possible starting in 12c to have Service Bus and SOA Suite in the same cluster.

· Governance products like OER and UDDI should not be in a SOA Suite or Service Bus domain. They should be in a separate domain. OER should be in a separate domain from UDDI.

· One consideration when deciding on topologies is that Upgrade is always domain wide. All products deployed to the domain must release in the same release train and you should be willing to upgrade all of them at the same time.

· You can target multiple products to the same cluster by targeting the appropriate user extensible server group to  the servers in the cluster.

1. SOA Suite is targeted to a server by targeting either the user extensible server group SOA-MGD-SVRS or SOA-MGD-SVRS-ONLY.

2. Service Bus is targeted to a server by targeting either the user extensible server group OSB-MGD-SVRS-COMBINED or OSB-MGD-SVRS-ONLY.

3. BAM is targeted to a server by targeting either the user extensible server group BAM12-MGD-SVRS or BAM12-MGD-SVRS-ONLY.

4. MFT is targeted to a server by targeting either the user extensible server group MFT-MGD-SVRS or MFT-MGD-SVRS-ONLY.

5. ESS is targeted to a server by targeting the user extensible server group ESS-MGD-SVRS. Read the complete article here

SaaS-OnPremise Integration with Fusion Middleware demo available

clip_image002To get access to the Oracle demo system please visit first OPN (OPN account required)

With the increasing popularity of software as a service (SaaS), there is a key imperative to quickly, efficiently and securely integrate the newer SaaS applications with their existing on-premise counterparts. Using an incident management/service delivery scenario, this demo shows how Oracle Fusion Middleware streamlines this integration via a unified framework of middleware components that masks the technical differences and enforces consistency via a common integration platform for SaaS and On-Premise applications.

Highlights

  • Incident management/service delivery scenario with multiple user personas to reflect real world use case
  • SOA Suite 12c with Oracle Cloud and On-Premise Adapters to integrate Oracle Service Cloud and E-Business Suite applications
  • Scalable and secure access management for cross-application processes and transactions via OAM Mobile and Social, OAG, OID
  • This demo is mostly an iPhone based demo.

Call to Action

For more information about SaaS integration attend our Multichannel Integration hands-on workshop at the Fusion Middleware Community Forum 2015 or visit the SOA Partner Community Workspace (Community membership required).

Protecting Sensitive Data in SOA Suite 12c by Jennie DeRosa

clip_image002

Given the recent security breaches, data security should always be a concern when designing and creating IT solutions. In particular, what are some considerations that should be made when implementing a solution within the Oracle SOA Suite? Is it sufficient to protect the data using WS-Security/SSL or is additional security needed? If you have sensitive data traversing through the SOA Suite then additional security must be considered.

As noted within the National Institute Standards and Technology (NIST) publication, ‘to appropriately protect the confidentiality of personally identifiable information (PII), organizations should use a risk-based approach’. To understand what is considered PII, or sensitive data, along with recommendations to protect PII read Guide to Protecting the Confidentiality of Personally Identifiable Information.

WS-Security and SSL only will protect data outside a SOA composite or Service Bus. Once the data hits either one of these, it is viewable in clear text within audit trails, console or logs. This means sensitive data is viewable within the console and log, causing this data to be unencrypted at rest. An example of this is shown below. Anyone with access to EM (Enterprise Manager) could view the sensitive data just by opening the audit trail of a process:

SOA Suite 12c – Business Events and Consistency Levels by Siva

clip_image002

I have chosen Business Events as first feature to explore in recent release of SOA Suite12c. Also, I want to cross verify my earlier observations in 11g.

The initial observation is, now the new SOA project will have the folders for different artifacts and the folder Events is for edl files.

Secondly, 12c   supports One and Only one and  Guaranteed consistency only and no longer supports immediate. Also new property Durable is added to event subscriptions.

Even migration of 11g composites to 12c is resulting into error, if composite uses immediate consistency level. We have to manually make this change by choosing either of the 2 supported consistency levels. Read the complete article here.

Oracle RightNow Cloud, the eminent component of Oracle Service Cloud, makes it possible for organizations to better understand their customers, and quickly deliver apt answers through preferred service channels and devices. Whether your organization needs to deliver web customer service, enable a cross-channel contact center, or provide faster service in the field - Oracle RightNow Cloud makes it easy for customers to engage with your brands; your employees to serve customers; and your organization to adapt to changing business needs.To fulfill more connections, more channels, and provide even greater flexibility of integration to better serve customers needs, Oracle Cloud Adapter for RightNow has been introduced on the market leading SOA Suite 12c platform.

The Oracle Cloud adapter for RightNow provides intuitive wizard based approach common to all Oracle Cloud Adapters. It eliminates the complexity of cloud integration by encapsulating session management, simplifying security, and pruning many manual steps. The graphical adapter provides highly declarative way to discover the RightNow objects and operations of choice, and build the integration. The RightNow Cloud Adapter lets you connect to other cloud and on-premise applications via Oracle SOA Suite 12c which supports over 200 integration adapters and technologies.

The time to market for service solutions spanning RightNow Cloud and on-premise applications (viz. E-Business Suite, Siebel, SAP), or other cloud applications will be significantly reduced by leveraging the RightNow Cloud Adapter. These solutions also expand the value of the applications to the organization. Some of the examples of complementary business solutions that will benefit from RightNow Cloud Adapter include:

· Agent Dispatch for Field Service:  RightNow Cloud Agent interacts with a customer via phone, chat or email and leverages back office functionality to schedule and dispatch a technician.

· Service interactions for Sales and Marketing: Share customer information with your marketing and sales automation applications, as well as enable your sales account management teams to view service incidents with products.

· Agreement Renewals: Enable RightNow Cloud customers to renew agreements/contracts residing in a different application.
