Blurr the cloud lining with NetSuite: Introducing NetSuite Cloud Adapter on Oracle Integration Cloud Service by Rajesh Kalra

clip_image001NetSuite is a leading SaaS business software suite for ERP/financials, eCommerce, and order management. NetSuite cloud applications are commonly used by many mid-market and enterprise level companies, to streamline operations and provide real time visibility for better and faster decisions.

Oracle has introduced an all new NetSuite cloud adapter, in the latest release of its iPaaS -Integration Cloud Service (ICS). This new addition to the catalog of cloud adapters provides agility for NetSuite integrations, and enables organizations to access NetSuite content across business flows quickly and seamlessly.

The NetSuite cloud adapter provides rich and intuitive design time capabilities viz. functional categories of objects to select the business object(s) for integration, besides delivering the elevated user experience common to all cloud adapters.

Now Sales teams at any company can leverage the ICS iPaaS solution to build a lead-to-cash process from any SaaS based CRM (Oracle Sales Cloud or Salesforce.com) to NetSuite, creating quotes/orders in real time, thus eliminating manual order entry. They can access latest financial information, order status, or product availability via the NetSuite cloud adapter, and slash financial close. Read the complete article here.

Digital Innovation Demands Hybrid Integration by Carol Hildebrand

clip_image002I thought cloud computing would do away with acronym-laden technologies such as service-oriented architecture (SOA). Can’t you just sign up for applications run in a public cloud?

You can, but what happens when you want to integrate that shiny new cloud app with your existing applications and data? That integration has its own term—hybrid cloud—and for most enterprises, it’s the new norm. More than 65% of enterprise IT organizations will commit to hybrid cloud technologies before 2016, according to International Data Corporation.

Meanwhile, everyone from marketing to HR to product development is screaming for better information flow between departments, and they don’t care where the apps reside. That also requires smooth integration of cloud and legacy applications and data, which, as you will see, leads us back to SOA. Read the complete article here.

SOA 12.2.1 New Feature – End to End JSON and Javascript Example by Krishna Hanumantharao

clip_image002SOA 12.2.1 provides support for end-to-end JSON and Javascript. We don’t have do internal mapping between XML and JSON as in 12.1.3.

As part of this post, let us implement a simple REST service to demonstrate this new feature – End to End JSON with Javascript.

Let us create a very simple SOA Composite which exposes a JSON based REST interface, manipulates the values using Javascript and calls an external JSON based service.

For external JSON based REST service let us use a  dummy Read the complete article here.

SOA 12.2.1 – Awesome features! by Rama Rimmalapudi

Here is a quick overview of some of the new features of Oracle SOA 12.2.1 that we are excited about. We are looking forward to using the new features with our customers; they will provide significant benefits!

Integration Workload Statistics in EM

Workload metrics are very useful for high volume implementations. BPEL 10g had some of these metrics and they were not available in SOA 11g. Now we can search and view these metrics in EM. Workload metrics help in planning capacity of SOA servers. One suggestion to Oracle: it would be nice be able to monitor these metrics and alert by setting thresholds. Here are the few useful metrics:

  • Internal Queue metrics
  • BPEL Activity metrics
  • Service/Reference/Wire metrics
  • CPU and Memory for specific time
  • Dehydration metrics

Resiliency: Circuit Breaker

Failing instances consume resources and slows down SOA servers. This was problem in prior releases if you have failing instances due to external services issues etc. This enhancement allows you to monitor and suspend upstream services and then resume them after period of time that you configured. This helps in eliminating system outages due to one or more bad services. Note that Circuit Breaker is not enabled by default.

Several other things that I like about this feature:

  • We can enable this feature globally or at service level
  • Alerts can be sent when endpoint suspended.

Composite instance patching

Another excellent feature is modifying a composite without redeploying, so that pending instances can use updated service using patch artifact (SCA-INF/patch.xml). It creates sparse patch archive. WLST commands are available to validate and apply (deploy) the patch. This feature is only supported in production mode with database based MDS.

SOA in-memory

This is another useful feature for high volume implementations, which uses a coherence cache and configurable write-behind thread to defer DB writes for completed instances. Note that EM only reads from Database, not from coherence cache. Read the complete article here.

SOA Suite 12.2.1: Failure resiliency by Marcel van de Glind


clip_image002

Adjust the situation that from a business process various service endpoints are invoked, where one of them is shown unstable behavior. The unstable service is regularly for short and sometimes long time not available. This may result in a large number of instances end in the error hospital. At the time that the endpoint is not available, resources are used to process instances which will not end successfully. Failure resiliency solution helps to avoid this situation. The failure resiliency solution is to suspend upstream inbound adapters, or EDN subscriptions, or web services. In the case of web services, clients are given errors right away. In the case of EDN and Adapters, messages wait in directory/queue/topic etc. until the endpoint is resumed.

IWS can also help in this situation (see also my IWS blog). Use IWS to examine what happened at various points in the business process to analyze the behavior.

By default, failure resiliency is switched off. Zo to start using it, the first step is to enable failure resiliency. You can enable it globally (as shown below). Each downstream endpoint inherits this configuration, but you can override it for an endpoint. Read the complete article here.

SOA Suite 12.2.1: A first look at end-to-end JSON and JavaScript support in SOA Composites by Maarten Smeets

clip_image002SOA Suite 12.2.1 introduces end-to-end JSON support in composites and support for JavaScript in composites. The REST-binding (which can be used by Service Bus, BPEL, BPM) can receive and send untyped JSON without the need to translate it to XML. In BPEL, JavaScript can be used as expression language in various activities and there is a JavaScript embedding activity available.

In this article I’ll show some examples on what you can do with this end-to-end JSON support and give some examples on how to use JavaScript in your BPEL process.

About the implementation

Oracle has used the Mozilla Rhino JavaScript engine which is embedded in Java SE 6 and 7. WebLogic Server 12.2.1 and thus also SOA Suite 12.2.1, runs on Java SE 8 (Java EE 7). Java SE 8 has a new JavaScript engine Nashorn embedded (see here). A possible reason of Oracle for choosing Rhino could be that Nashorn is not thread safe. See here. You can imagine you need thread safety in an environment like SOA Suite.

SOAIncomingRequests_maxThreads is a property indicating the number of threads available to handle incoming requests. It is by default set to the same value as the connection pool size of the SOADataSource. This might not be enough for REST/JSON services. You can find this setting by going to the MBean browser, Configuration MBeans, com.bea, SelfTuning, (domain), MaxThreadsConstraint.

Use untyped JSON

You can use untyped JSON in various BPEL activities such as assign and assert activities. Since the JSON is untyped, you can assign values to elements which do not exist yet and they will be created; there is no message definition. Payload validation will cause a NullPointerException. Read the complete article here.
