VirtualBox with SOA, BPM, OSB and BAM in 33 minutes by Peter van Nes

clip_image002

The Oracle Quick Start installers for Developers are great for probably many developers, but they are limited. Shutting down (or crashing of) JDeveloper will shutdown the domain and there are separate Quick Start installers for SOA and BPM suite. When installing a SOA or BPM environment for development or research purposes i prefer an environment which is more close to a production configuration. Setting up an new environment can take some time when you have to go through the wizards and remembering the options chosen the previous time you installed. Therefore i scripted the installation proces, the scripts are divided per product so that i a later stage easily can replace specific stages in the installation proces and am not bound to a specific virtualization product or installation tool.

In this article i will show you how to configure a VirtualBox machine, install Oracle Linux 6U7, Oracle BPM (including SOA), OSB & BPM. And configure a Weblogic 12cR1 domain with separate managed servers forSOA/BPM, OSB and BAM in less than 33 minutes. Read the complete article here.

Integration with new Oracle Integration Cloud Service (ICS) by ec4u

clip_image002Since a few years cloud computing has become more and more popular. The main types of cloud computing are Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS). In the past, several subareas have been established in the market and pushed by research companies. One subarea is Integration PaaS (IPaaS)  and a variety of vendors have provided solutions. One advantage of IPaaS solutions is the simplified integration. Furthermore, IPaaS provides the capability to integrate cloud- and on-premise applications. Oracle announced Integration Cloud Service (ICS) as an IPaaS solution in June.
This article describes a first impression and the key components of ICS.

First experience with ICS

After the login to ICS, you will get greated with an organized and clean overview. The page provides an overview on the three main functional areas. Figure 1 shows the areas and the simple and tablet-friendly user interface. The functional areas are divided into Connections, Integrations and Dashboard.

Figure 1: ICS Start Page (click on the picture to see an enlarged version of the picture)

The Connections-area provides the capabilities to define configurations to specific application endpoints. These configurations are based on technology adapters such as SOAP, application adapters for on premise application e.g. eBusiness Suite and cloud adapters for cloud applications e.g. Oracle Sales Cloud. The connection could be used for several integrations and one of the main benefits is the reusability of the configuration. In addition, the integration developer does not need to know details about the service or application when using the preconfigured adapter.
The most important functional area is Integrations. It provides the functions to develop the integration flows and lookups. The overview page shows all integrations with the possibility to filter by status. The user interface to develop the integration is kept as simple as possible.
Figure 2 shows the integration development and the clean interface you will already know from the overview. Target, source and transformation are the key elements of an integration scenario. The source and target can be defined with preconfigured connections or technology adapters such as Rest or SOAP. The transformation for request and response messages is placed in the middle of the screen. Read the complete article here.

ICS Integration Patterns (Part 1 of 3): Map My Data by Antonis Antoniou

clip_image001

Oracle Integration Cloud Service (ICS) is another powerful yet simple Cloud platform offering by Oracle that simplifies the development of cloud and hybrid integrations (applications in the cloud and on premises).
The entire integration development and operational lifecycle is managed through a web based service console offering a point and click integration and monitoring experience without having to write a single line of code.
Furthermore Oracle ICS supports various industry standards like SOAP and REST and comes with a set of cloud adapters providing pre-integration capabilities with several SaaS applications (such as Oracle ERP Cloud, Oracle HCM Cloud, Oracle Sales Cloud, Oracle RightNow, Eloqua, NetSuite and Salesforce) shortening the time-to-market in integration projects.
The concepts in Oracle ICS are really simple; you create connections (using the pre-defined offered adapters) and leverage those connections to create integrations which you can then dashboard monitor to track the current state of your running integrations and fix any errors that might occur.

https://paascommunity.com/2016/07/23/five-ways-cloud-based-integration-is-driving-innovation-whitepaper/

clip_image001With businesses adopting more and more cloud applications, mobile apps, and devices, integration has never been more important. Integrating these apps and tools with the rest of the systems is the key to a connected enterprise— one that supports real-time responsiveness, instant collaboration, and streamlined innovation. To keep up with these new integration demands, a new breed of solution has emerged—cloud-based integration platforms (also called integration platform as a service, or iPaaS for short). For businesses looking to gain all of the benefits of a connected enterprise, while also simplifying administration and accelerating time to market, they’re a game-changer. They’re fueling a hybrid approach to integration—one that combines on-premises integration with iPaaS

to respond to business requirements faster—but that’s just the start. Read on and discover five key ways cloud-based integration platforms are transforming the way organizations integrate, making innovation simpler than ever before. Get the whitepaper here.

ServiceCloud Rightnow Integration, XSLT Transformations! By Fabio Persico

clip_image002I've just roll out to a live environment, a SOA Integration project with Oracle Service Cloud Rightnow.

The customer needed to migrate from a in-house CRM to Oracle Service Cloud and with my company Infomentum we have helped them in taking this big step. Since that I have made lots of experience with OSC WebServices.

Here I just want to share the complex XSLT Transformation which we have implemented to communicate with the OSC WebServices, hopefully these can speed up any other SC integration projects.

There are 6 transformation in the ZIP package (we have implemented more):

XSLT Name

SC Object

Out of the box Object?

Operation Type

xsltContact2Update

CONTACT

Yes

UPDATE

xsltOrganisationToUpdate

ORGANIZATION

Yes

UPDATE

xsltProgrammeToUpdate

CO.PROGRAMME

No

UPDATE

xsltProgrammeTypeToUpdate

CO.PROGRAMMETYPE

No

UPDATE

xsltCourseToUpdate2

CO.COURSE

No

UPDATE

xsltSessionToUpdate

CO.SESSION

No

UPDATE

In the XSLTs you'll find all the details about the TARGET columns (Oracle Service Cloud ones). Here are some important concepts I want to highlight:

  • SC Columns in the XSLT are sometimes out of the box column, in some other cases they are custom ones. In the XSLT the latter will be identified with the tag GenericFields. Read the complete article here.

HCM Cloud – Bulk Integration Automation Using SOA Cloud Service by Jack Desai

clip_image002Introduction

Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud provides a comprehensive set of tools, templates, and pre-packaged integration to cover various scenarios using modern and efficient technologies. One of the patterns is the batch integration to load and extract data to and from the HCM cloud. HCM provides the following bulk integration interfaces and tools:

HCM Data Loader (HDL)

HDL is a powerful tool for bulk-loading data from any source to Oracle Fusion HCM. It supports important business objects belonging to key Oracle Fusion HCM products, including Oracle Fusion Global Human Resources, Compensation, Absence Management, Performance Management, Profile Management, Global Payroll, Talent and Workforce Management. For detailed information on HDL, please refer to this.

HCM Extracts

HCM Extract is an outbound integration tool that lets you select HCM data elements, extracting them from the HCM database and archiving these data elements as XML. This archived raw XML data can be converted into a desired format and delivered to supported channels recipients.

Oracle Fusion HCM provides the above tools with comprehensive user interfaces for initiating data uploads, monitoring upload progress, and reviewing errors, with real-time information provided for both the import and load stages of upload processing. Fusion HCM provides tools, but it requires additional orchestration such as generating FBL or HDL file, uploading these files to WebCenter Content and initiating FBL or HDL web services. This post describes how to design and automate these steps leveraging Oracle Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) Cloud Service deployed on Oracle’s cloud Platform As a Service (PaaS) infrastructure.  For more information on SOA Cloud Service, please refer to this.

Oracle SOA is the industry’s most complete and unified application integration and SOA solution. It transforms complex application integration into agile and re-usable service-based components to speed time to market, respond faster to business requirements, and lower costs.. SOA facilitates the development of enterprise applications as modular business web services that can be easily integrated and reused, creating a truly flexible, adaptable IT infrastructure. For more information on getting started with Oracle SOA, please refer this. For developing SOA applications using SOA Suite, please refer to this.

These bulk integration interfaces and patterns are not applicable to Oracle Taleo.

Main Article

HCM Inbound Flow (HDL)

Oracle WebCenter Content (WCC) acts as the staging repository for files to be loaded and processed by HDL. WCC is part of the Fusion HCM infrastructure.

The loading process for FBL and HDL consists of the following steps:

  • Upload the data file to WCC/UCM using WCC GenericSoapPort web service
  • Invoke the “LoaderIntegrationService” or the “HCMDataLoader” to initiate the loading process.

However, the above steps assume the existence of an HDL file and do not provide a mechanism to generate an HDL file of the respective objects. In this post we will use the sample use case where we get the data file from customer, using it to transform the data and generate an HDL file, and then initiate the loading process.

The following diagram illustrates the typical orchestration of the end-to-end HDL process using SOA cloud service: Read the complete article here.
