FMW 12.1.3 – Invoking Enterprise Scheduler Service Web Services from SoapUI by Lucas Jellema

clip_image002

The Fusion Middleware 12.1.3 platform contains the ESS or Enterprise Scheduler Service. This service can be used as asynchronous, schedule based job orchestrator. It can execute jobs that are Operating System jobs, java calls (local Java or EJB), PL/SQL calls, and Web Service calls (synchronous, asynchronous and one-way) including SOA composite, Service Bus and ADF BC web services.

Jobs and schedules can be defined from client applications

through a  Java API or through the Enterprise Manager FMW Control user interface. Additionally, ESS exposes a web service through which (pre defined) jobs can be scheduled. This web service can be invoked from BPEL processes in SOA composites – or from any component that knows how to invoke a SOAP Web Service.

In this article I will briefly demonstrate how to invoke the ESS Web Service from SoapUI. I will not describe how to create the Job Definition – I will assume two pre existing Job Definitions: HelloWorld (of type PL/SQL job) and SendFlightUpdateNotification of type SOA composite based one way Web Service. Both Job Definitions contain application properties – parameters that can be set for every job instance and that are used in the job execution. When invoking the ESS Web Service to schedule a job, values for these properties can be passed in.

There is one tricky aspect with ESS: jobs cannot be run as anonymous users. So if ESS does not know who makes the request for scheduling a job, it will not perform the request. It returns an error such as

oracle.as.scheduler.RuntimeServiceAccessControlException: ESS-02002 User anonymous does not have sufficient privilege to perform operation submitRequest JobDefinition://oracle/apps/ess/custom/saibot/SendFlightUpdateNotification.

To ensure we do not run into this problem, we have to attach a WSM security policy to the ESS Web Service and pass a WS Security Header with valid username and password in our request. Then the job request is made in the context of a validated user and this problem goes away.

The steps to go through: Read the complete article here.

API Catalog (OAC) 12.1.3 available for download

imageAPI Catalog (OAC) allows organizations to easily build a catalog of their APIs to provide visibility to those APIs for application development. OAC includes a simple metamodel for an API asset, automation to populate OAC with APIs, and the ability for users to search OAC for APIs and understand the details of the APIs to assess their fit in the users application.
Powered by comprehensive automation capabilities, Oracle API catalog streamlines processes and optimizes reuse to promote and foster API adoption. The solution establishes a foundation for success by

  • Providing facilities to automate the population of OAC
  • Enabling easy API editing and publishing
  • Facilitating API consumption in JDeveloper

You can download OAC (as a part of the OER 12.1.3 installer) and learn more on OTN. Learn more in the Oracle API Catalog Datasheet. image

Simple Introduction to using the Enterprise Manager SOA/BPM Facade API by Jaideep Ganguli

There may be times when you need to expose just a small section of what is displayed in the Enterprise Manager console for SOA/BPM (EM console).

A simple example can be where stakeholders on the systems integration or customer teams want to monitor a dashboard of statistics on how many instances of a composite have been created and how many have faulted.

DeployedCompositeStatsInEMYou can see this in the EM, as shown below
Some of these stakeholders may not have knowledge of  EM console and they just want a quick view into the statistics, without having to navigate EM.

This post describes how to use the Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure Management Java API  for Oracle SOA Suite (also called the Facade API)  to build a custom ADF page to display this information. If you want a quick introduction in using the Facade API, this post is for you.

Enterprise Service Bus article part of Industrial SOA series

Everyone seems to need to use an enterprise service bus (ESB) nowadays, but there is so much confusion about its actual benefit and the various concepts this term entails. This uncertainity is revealed in statements like, "Help! My boss says we need an ESB," or "Why do I need an ESB at all? Can't I achieve the same thing with BPEL or BPMN?" or even "We can do everything ourselves in language X." This article is an attempt to answer some of the most important questions surrounding this term using concrete examples, so that the areas of application that can be deemed "correct" for ESBs can be clarified:

  • What exactly is the definition of an ESB? Is it a product or an architecture pattern?
  • What are some practical uses for an ESB?
  • Do I need an ESB to build an SOA platform?
  • Which requirements do I need to satisfy?
  • Which criteria can I use to select the ESB that is most suitable for my needs?

Defining the ESB
An accepted definition for this term has yet to be firmly established that is most likely caused by a lack of industry standards, whereas standards like BPEL and BPMN 2.0 exist for process engines and other components. The term “Enterprise Service Bus” was coined by Gartner in 2002, and further introduced by the analyst Roy Schulte to describe a category of software products that he observed were available on the market at that time. Ten years later, there is still very little agreement on what exactly an ESB is or what it should deliver. There are different definitions depending on the manufacturer or source. Among other things, an ESB is defined as:

"A style of integration architecture that allows communication via a common communication bus that consists of a variety of point-to-point connections between providers and users of services."

"An infrastructure that a company uses for integrating services in the application landscape."
