SOA Suite 12c: The Coherence Adapter By Maarten Smeets

clip_image001Oracle SOA Suite 12c ships with a new technology adapter, the Oracle CoherenceAdapter. This adapter allows easy integration with a Coherence Data Grid (a distributed cache). The excellent post by Antony Reynolds provides the information required to setup your Coherence cache and get started with the adapter. In this blog post I will describe a pattern which can be used to use Coherence Data Grid as a cache for a database table (or view, or…). Also I did some performance measures on the Oracle quickstart JDeveloper installation with Integrated Weblogic server and an XE database with surprising results!

Important tips from Antony’s post:

  • Use one Coherence cache per object type. This allows clearing the entire cache and specifying specific behavior per object type.
  • Make sure the Coherence configuration file is available to every server in the cluster (shared storage). This is similar to a DbAdapter configuration plan.
  • Set the servicename in the outbound connectionFactory of the CoherenceAdapter to DistributedCache so it works in clusters and WLSExtendProxy to false unless you are using this feature.
  • In 11c you can use Coherence from within a SOA Suite Spring component or by enabling the OSB result cache. Both have disadvantages though. 12c provides the CoherenceAdapter as alternative. Read the complete article here.

Five Tools for Debugging Oracle SOA Suite by Adam Mead

clip_image001Have you ever completed a software project and had nothing go wrong? Neither have I. Projects using Oracle’s SOA Suite are no different than Java projects and you will need to debug issues at some point.

Here are five tools for debugging issues on Oracle SOA Suite:

1. Flow Trace and Audit Trail

If you have an issue with a specific instance, or instances that follow a specific path, both the flow trace of the composite instance and audit trail of the component instances are extremely helpful. Flow traces and audit trails help you pinpoint a location to look in your code. You can look at the location of the error and step back through the flow trace and audit trail from that point to trace back to the cause of the issue.

In most production systems, the domain audit level will be set to Production so the system doesn’t write too many audit records. When the audit level is set to production, you won’t be able to see the payload in mediators or assignment activities - two places likely to have mistakes. The audit level can be changed on each composite individually, so if your domain audit level is set to Production, you can always temporarily change the audit level of your problem composite to Development to help troubleshoot an issue. However, changing the audit level will only have an effect on activities completed after the changes is made.

To change the audit level on a composite:

1. Navigate to Enterprise Manager in a browser

2. In the left panel expand SOA, then soa-infra, then the partition to which your project is deployed, then click on your composite

3. In the main panel, click on Settings… -> Composite Audit Level: Inherit -> Development Read the complete article here.

https://soacommunity.wordpress.com/2015/05/24/mobile-suite-service-bus-rest-and-adf-bc-soap-by-andrejus-baranovskis/


clip_image002One of the key parts of Oracle Mobile Suite 12c offering is Service Bus product. This is logical choice - Service Bus allows to transform complex SOAP Web Service data into simplified REST format, preferred by mobile client. I think it is essential to use Service Bus, when implementing enterprise mobile applications. It makes sense to learn how Oracle Service Bus works. I would recommend to start from Steven Davelaar excellent tutorial article, available here - Creating a Mobile-Optimized REST API Using Oracle Service Bus – Part 2.
I have created my own ADF BC application with SOAP WS - findEmployees method (filters by first and last name). Here you can download both applications - MobileServiceBusApp_v1.zip. Keep in mind, for some reason Service Bus server doesn't start with JDEV 12c BPM Default Domain, it works only with JDEV 12c SOA Default Domain. Make sure to check, which JDEV you are using, you can check the list features installed: ADF BC SOAP service is implemented to support Master-Detail (Employee - Department Managed by Employee) structure: Read the complete article here.

Test-driven development using the Oracle SOA Suite by The Cattle Crew

clip_image001As in all software projects, quality assurance with thorough testing in integration projects is a key factor to success. Test-driven development focuses exactly on this aspect: unit and integration testing of integration elements must be done as soon as possible. The tests used in these phases must also be reproducible so that they can be run automatically in case of changes in the integration logic, thus guaranteeing that no unintended changes are made.

Oracle SOA/BPM Suite is a powerful tool suite for integration. This article shows how test-driven development can be done with the Oracle tooling. Integration elements built with Oracle SOA/BPM Suite are SCA composites made up of several components. Since mainly the integration layer is concerned, there is quite often heavy usage of external web services, database adapters, etc. The composites also usually have an inbound interface the invocation of which is the starting point of the integration logic.

As it can be seen from above, the key to testing SCA composites is to define an inbound message and assert the data found in various other messages during the integration logic. Some easy scenarios can instantly be identified. XSLT transformations within the composites can be unit-tested without the complete logic itself for example. Likewise, end2end testing is also easily done – at least for a web service interface – thus assuring at least that the result is what we expected. The problem is that for end2end testing, the correct functionality of back-end systems is a prerequisite. If the back-end functionality is developed parallel to the integration logic, end2end testing is far away from test-driven development. Read the complete article here.
