Upgrading to SOA 12c and details of the next UKOUG Middleware SIG by Simon Haslam

clip_image002SOA 12c is the most important release of Oracle's flagship integration product set that we've seen for 5 years (when 11g was launched). Oracle has also now produced the first SOA 12c bundle patch-set (12.1.3.0.1) so in my opinion any new SOA installations should definitely be using 12c, and existing 11g users should be seriously considering upgrading to take advantage of the many new features.

For administrators what is particularly nice about this release is that a lot of work has clearly een put into the upgrade process, building on some of the changes introduced in WebLogic 12.1.2. The upgrade is actually surprisingly straightforward - in outline you have to:

  • Carefully review pre-requisites and do any purging of old instances
  • Install Fusion Middleware Infrastructure and SOA Suite 12c into a new Oracle home
  • Shut down SOA 11g, backup repository and domain home
  • Run RCU to install the new 12c schemas into the existing repository alongside the 11g ones
  • Run the Upgrade Assistant to upgrade the 11g schemas, including running instance data, to 12c format
  • Run the new Reconfiguration Wizard against the 11g domain home to rewire for the 12c home
  • Run the Upgrade Assistant a second time to upgrade some infrastructure components
  • If you have modified setDomainEnv,sh etc you will need to re-apply the changes
  • Backup repository and domain home, then start up SOA

Of course you may only have short-lived processes so be able to drain down the old SOA 11g system and switch over to a brand new SOA 12c system running in parallel, in which case the above upgrade is probably unnecessary.

The above does not consider migration from SOA Suite 10g to 11g/12c which is much more complicated and, if you've not already done it by now, a project in itself. Plus I've not mentioned Service Bus or BAM yet but we'll describe in more detail in a week's time... Read the complete article here.

Leveraging Agile and Scrum on SOA and BPM projects by Kris Nelson

Wclip_image002[5]ithin our implementation framework at AVIO, we use an Agile methodology called Scrum.  We have found this to be a great fit for Oracle Fusion Middleware projects in the SOA, BPM and WebCenter space — especially when projects seek to improve or bring innovative new approaches to an organization.

If you are new to Agile and Scrum, check out this great video which covers some of the key concepts: Agile methodologies like Scrum have several benefits over traditional waterfall methodologies, such as:

  • Seeking progress within each iteration (or sprint) to review the accuracy of requirements and adjust course
  • Implementing a simple structure and focus on the team's effectiveness as primary goals
  • Encouraging breaking larger efforts into smaller, more manageable chunks
  • Emphasizing team collaboration -- especially business and IT)

Building an Oracle Fusion Middleware Platform at customers, with various products such as SOA Suite, OSB or any other product forces you to think about security integration and implementation.

In this whitepaper, I cover a basic scenario to think of and tell you how you can start securing web services making use of Oracle Web Service Manager. There’s also an explanation about how these scenarios fit in your Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastucture. Get the whitepaper here.

Best Practices to Adopting a Successful Cloud Integration Strategy

image

The challenge of integration is certainly not a new one for IT, but the cloud adds a new twist.
In today's hybrid computing environments—which must incorporate public and private clouds, on-premises systems, mobile, and IoT — Cloud integration is a much more complex problem. Cloud Integration can be complicated by many factors, including standards and protocols, gateways and firewalls, multi-tenancy, and especially the need for security.
Increasingly, companies are rethinking their integration strategy to make use of the new digital business paradigm. The tough questions remain: what are the pre-requisites for integrating a hybrid Cloud? What benefits does it offer? And what challenges does it present?
In this program, we answer those questions and more with the industry leading expert in IPaaS – Gartner Research Vice President Massimo Pezzini. What are the selection criteria when it comes to choosing an IPaaS? What are some of the first steps you should take to unlock more value from your Cloud Applications? Register here.

SOA Mythbusters


clip_image002Introduction

So, do you work with Oracle SOA Suite? that’s great because we also do, every single day since a long time ago. As Oracle professionals, we’ve seen the SOA stack grow, change, incorporating new products and technology with each version, from 10g to 12c.

We’re Rolando Carrasco (Oracle ACE) and Arturo Viveros (Oracle ACE Associate), the SOA Myth Busters from Mexico, and as we go with this series we will put to the test a number of questions, myths and urban legends regarding both SOA & the Oracle SOA Platform in seek of finding out which myths are true and which are not.

BPEL vs OSB

In this episode, we will dive into one of the hottest arguments Oracle SOA Practitioners have been sustaining over the years: BPEL against Service Bus.Can and should they work together? Is one of them better than the other? Are there any well-founded guidelines that I can rely on in order to decide between them? And what about SOA Suite 12c? Around this subject there seem to be plenty of myths, misunderstandings and misconceptions, so let’s get it on and uncover as much of the truth as possible.

Let’s get started

Preparation for Live Mobile Hacking with an OFM 12c red stack – Budapest 2015 by Lucas Jellema

clip_image002On March 4th, I presented – together with ADF and Mobile Application Framework expert Luc Bors – a live development demo session at the EMEA Oracle Fusion Middleware Partner Forum in Budapest, Hungary. Luc and I are in the middle of our preparations for this event. And I thought perhaps it would be nice to share some of the background for this session.

It all started in the Fall as Jürgen Kress, responsible at Oracle for Fusion Middleware Partner Adoption EMEA, sent out a call for papers for the Forum, looking for proposals for presentations and other types of sessions. Luc and I prepared a proposal for a session where we would do live development (always appealing for the audience and somewhat nerve racking for the presenters) and show the development of a mobile app (using Oracle MAF) on top of a mobile back end (created using SOA Suite 12c and its REST capabilities). Luc and I have done similar sessions in the past. They can be a lot of fun – and be quite stressful because of all the things that can and typically will go wrong.

Jürgen accepted our proposal, invented the title (Live Mobile Hacking with an OFM 12c red stack) and allocated a general slot for us: a full hour as the last section of the second day.

The Case

That was several months ago, and now the event is imminent and we better start preparing in anger. First of all we needed a case: what would be the storyline for our live demo? We decided on the airline industry – inspired perhaps a little bit by the airport case that provides the backbone for the book I am currently writing on SOA Suite 12c. A flight provides a good example of an application that does not have constant connectivity – one of the features we would like to demonstrate. Everyone partakes in flights from time to time. And between flight attendants, ground staff and the back office systems of the airline and the airport, it would not be hard to find interactions that we could use in the demo.

Read part I here. and read part II here and read Luc’s post here

Oracle introduces API Manager! By Maarten Smeets

clip_image001Oracle has introduced a new product; API Manager (you can find the official documentation here). API Manager is an important addition to the already impressive Oracle SOA stack. In this article I’ll explain what this new product does and how it helps in managing your API’s. I will focus on the features and benefits you can have of this product and also elaborate a little about my current experiences with it.

API Manager

What does API Manager do?

API Manager is a product which extends the Service Bus functionality and provides an API Manager Portal to manage API’s and browse analytics. API Manager allows you to save certain metadata as part of a Service Bus proxy service. This metadata is used to allow access to an API and provide data on their usage. SOAP and REST API’s are supported (HTTP API’s). Read the complete article here.
