Fusion HCM Integration by Kiran Mundy

clip_image002Because of frequent questions from HCM customers on how they can use BPEL to integrate with Fusion HCM, I’ve put together the details here

Your orchestration layer is the software [such as Oracle's SOA BPEL or BPM Studio] you currently already use, to wire together Fusion HCM Loader/Extract programs to other apps.


SOA/BPEL
Companies already using SOA/BPEL can just add Fusion HCM into the mix.
Steps to accomplish this are below:.

INBOUND TO FUSION HCM

  1. BPEL's "File Adapter" to read the data in.
  2. BPEL's Transform Activity with Domain Value Maps to transform the data.
  3. You need to get the UCM Service exposed externally (In Rel10 it will be exposed, but on Rel9, you'll need to do the following):
    1. File an SR requesting Fusion HCM to perform a Key Exchange - Aside from allowing you to send "encrypted" files into Fusion, this step will also result in the UCM Service being exposed externally.
      • Ensure you file the SR under Oracle Cloud Global Human Resources Cloud Service.
      • Choose Hosting Services – Application -> Encryption Key Exchange
  4. Use BPEL to Invoke the UCM Soap Service to write the File into UCM.
    • If your Fusion HCM home page is: https://<Hostname>/homePage/faces/AtkHomePageWelcome
    • The UCM Service wsdl will be: https:// <Hostname>/idcws/GenericSoapPort?wsdl
  1. Invoke the HCM Loader Programs passing them the encryption parameter along with other required parameters.
    • FBL wsdl is the following form: https:// <Hostname>/LoaderIntegrationService?WSDL
    • HDL wsdl is the following form: https:// <Hostname>/hcmCommonDataLoader/HCMDataLoader?wsdl
  2. Find out which user privileges you must assign to the users who call these web services in OER: https://fusionappsoer.oracle.com
  3. Sample Payloads for the above services are available here. [You can enter comments into the sample payloads doc if you find any issues].
  4. Later when REST Services are available (Release 9 Patch Bundle 6 under "controlled availability" most likely), for your lighter weight inbound integrations, such as Fusion/Taleo, you will have the option to switch #3/4/5 to a REST service call to create/update the employee in Fusion. NOTE: Cco-existence scenarios should continue to use batch loaders because:
    • Performance Reasons - services won't perform as well under heavy loads
    • The breadth of data needed for co-existence isn't covered (or intended to be covered) by the REST Services.

OUTBOUND FROM FUSION HCM Read the complete article here

Integrating With Fusion Application Using Services (SoapUi - SSL) By Jani Rautiainen

clip_image002Fusion Applications provides web services that allow external systems to integrate with Fusion Applications. There are two types of services: ADF services and composite services. ADF services are created for a logical business object and provide functionality to access and manipulate these objects. The composite services are mostly process oriented and provide an orchestration of multiple steps.  
Information about the web services provided by Fusion Applications is hosted in Oracle Enterprise Repository (OER). The information provided by OER can be used to understand the functionality provided by the service and how the service can be called.
This series of articles describes how one can invoke SOAP web services provided by Fusion Applications using various technologies. In previous article we covered how to invoke a Fusion Application web service secured with simple username token using SoapUI. In this article we will cover a call to service secured with SSL policy.

Prerequisites

SoapUi

The reader is expected to have SoapUI installed.

Fusion Applications Web Service Policy

This example covers a call to a web service that support user name tokens and SSL. The example was tested with a service using "oracle/wss_username_token_over_ssl_service_policy" commonly available for Oracle SaaS environments.

Implementing Web Service Call

Generally the steps to call a SSL and non-SSL services are the same. The SSL services are however commonly configured to validate a timestamp though. So calls to SSL services commonly require the "wsu:Timestamp" element and the value used must be within tolerance. If the timestamp is not provided or the value is not within the tolerance you would see error such as:

      <env:Fault xmlns:ns0="http://docs.oasis-open.org/wss/2004/01/oasis-200401-wss-wssecurity-secext-1.0.xsd">
         <faultcode>ns0:InvalidSecurityToken</faultcode>
         <faultstring>InvalidSecurityToken : The security token is not valid.</faultstring>
         <faultactor/>
      </env:Fault>

User Experience new content: Fusion Applications & mobile & concepts

On the Fusion Applications user experience: More: New podcasts and posts on the Oracle user experience.

Here's a round-up of recent podcasts and blog posts relating to the Oracle Applications User Experience that were published in February.

  • Jeremy Ashley, Vice President of Oracle Applications User Experience, talks about Oracle's roadmap to a simple, modern user experience for Fusion Applications. Listen to learn more about the strategy behind Project FUSE. You may also access the podcast through the Usable Apps website.
  • Ultan O'Broin, Director of Oracle Global User Experience, talks in this podcast about why Oracle is making design patterns available for customers, partners, and the development community. These design patterns for the Oracle Fusion Applications user experience encapsulate proven best-practices and make them available for those who are extending or tailoring an Oracle application.
  • Richard Bingham, Oracle Applications Architect, discusses how to tailor Fusion Applications in the cloud.

On Oracle's investment in the next-generation user experience (in this case, mobile): Intense research into mobile use helps guide design of Oracle Applications

Read about the mobile trends that the Oracle Applications User Experience team noted during a recent global expedition, which included user studies in Sweden, the United States, and Beijing.

The Oracle Applications User Experience team continues to investigate how and why enterprise workers use their mobile devices, and their findings are already influencing the next-generation user experiences that Oracle is designing.

Visit the Usable Apps website to learn more.
Also on Oracle's investment in the next-generation user experience (a look at trends we're following up on): A look at new concepts for the enterprise space
The Applications User Experience team is keeping its eye on new technologies that may have an impact on the enterprise space.

New concepts and technologies go through an internal research, design, and development process to assess which ones may or may not gain traction in the enterprise space.
Read more about how our findings help guide the Oracle user experience strategy on the Voice of User Experience, or VoX, blog.

Oracle Fusion UX Design Patterns and Tools for the Cloud Crowd by Ultan O’Broin

The Oracle Fusion Applications User Experience Design Patterns and Guidelines are out-of-the-box, developer productivity enablers. As ready-made, yet flexible, usability solutions, the patterns are easily applied when building Fusion applications and UI integrations in the cloud with the Oracle toolkit.

Design patterns as reusable solutions to common problems when designing are all around us. Keen to tell this story in new ways, I was inspired by an Engine Yard “Cloud Out Loud | Ruby“ podcast mention of knitting patterns on GitHub.

I assigned my partner a proof of concept project for one such knitting pattern in the cloud. The pattern was quickly applied, and reflecting pattern ideas of content and skin neutrality, I soon took delivery of “HCM” and “CRM”, two little knitted aliens. Concept proven!

Knitted aliens. Proving the design pattern concept.

Knitted aliens brought to life from a pattern in the cloud. I used this story at a SAMBA UX outreach workshop in Amsterdam earlier this month.

Our UX design patterns have been proven in usability labs, in offices, and on the street, with real users, real tasks, and real apps. We’ve done the thinking and testing so that builders of Fusion apps cloud solutions don’t have to. To get your hands on UX design patterns for use across the Fusion apps suite (not just HCM and CRM), go to the Usable Apps website “For Developers” section. Read the full article here.

Getting to Know Oracle Fusion Middleware

A quick tour of the broad set of products under the Oracle Fusion Middleware umbrella.

Simon Haslam, Principal Consultant, Veriton & myself published an middleware article in the UKOUG Scene magazine.  This article arose because Jürgen Kress’ “Fusion Middleware Architecture Overview
abstract was one of the most highly rated submissions for UKOUG 2012, so it seemed there
might be an interest in trying to clarify the products that Oracle calls ‘Fusion Middleware.’
Little did we realise how many products there were…

Fusion Middleware – what is it?

‘Middleware,’ as its name suggests, is a generic term for the layers of software (or ‘software glue’ – see http://www.middleware.org/whatis.html) that sit between an application and, within enterprise software, typically services and resources like the Oracle Database. Oracle Fusion Middleware started off as the Java EE application server (Internet Application Server) but evolved to cover pretty much all software that isn’t the database or applications!


Why is Fusion Middleware important?

Middleware provides infrastructure services to enable applications to run. For example, if you want a ‘container’ (i.e. a server with very specific APIs) to run your enterprise Java application, and most likely connect to a relational database, you use WebLogic Server; if your application wants to use web services somewhere out in the ether it calls the Oracle Service Bus. As you can tell these Middleware services are vital to the successful and continuing operation of your application. For a long

time Middleware has been seen as the poor relation to the database (which holds the irreplaceable business data) but this is changing as Middleware is now providing integration of, and decoupling from, the underlying resources, plus there is an increased demand for 24/7 (or close) availability of applications for use by customers, partners.. read the full article here and get your Scene magazine copy as a UKOUG member .
