Remove data in Oracle MDS by Danilo Schmiedel

The two main database schemas in the Oracle SOA Suite datab ase repository are: <PREFIX>_SOAINFRA and <PREFIX>_MDS. Composite instance and runtime information are stored in the SOAINFRA schema. Commonly used metadata like WSDLs, XSDs, rules, fault policies, etc. as well as composite deployments are stored within the MDS schema.
With every deployment / import of the metadata artifacts a new document version will be created in the MDS. This means that re-importing an updated WSDL-file into the MDS does not delete the previous version of the document. Furthermore we sometimes need to remove unnecessary and unwanted files from the repository. If this is not considered you might end in problems like below: Read the full article here.

Using the MetaData Services (MDS) in a SOA environment by Robert van Molken

It has been almost a year since my last post about the metadata services. I talked about how-to set up a File-based MDS and DB-based MDS. This post talks about the usage of the files, placed in the MDS, in the different components available in a SOA composite. If the MDS is a new thing for you then I advise to read my previous about this subject first.

You can spot the presence of a file that is a reference to the MDS if it uses the oramds: URI annotation. Files are no longer referenced to a hardcoded or relative file path.

To start using you’re MDS that you have set up we will create a new SOA application. Let call the application WorkflowSOAapp and create a SOA project and call it WebformService.

Use MDS resources for exposed services

After creating the new SOA project it will open the composite editor automatically. Exposed services are always created in the left swim lane. Because this project deals with a WSDL resource to expose a webservice, a Web Service component is first dragged to the left swim lane.

Create exposed service

Drag Web Service Component to left swimlane

A dialog “Create Web Service” will open. Give the service a good name, preferred the same as the name in the WSDL (e.g. WebFormService). The next thing to do is to choose the WSDL URL. Click on the document jdev_document_iconicon at the right side of the WSDL URL input to find an existing WSDL. Read the full article here & Read part II here.

Exploring MDS Explorer by Mark Nelson

imageRecently, I posted about my colleague Olivier’s MDS Explorer tool, which is a great way to get a look inside your MDS repository. I have been playing around with it a little bit, nothing much really, just some cosmetic stuff, but you might like to take a look at it. I made it format the documents nicely with proper indentation, and with line numbers and a nicer editor. It also will warn you if you are about to open a large document so that you know it has not crashed, but that you just have to be patient. And I added some icons and stuff. There is even a nice Dora the Explorer picture hiding in there for those who care to look for it . Read the full article here.

MDS explorer by Red Samurai

This tool is designed to work with plain ADF applications, as well as with WebCenter Portal or WebCenter Spaces applications. It allows to delete and edit corrupted or obsolete MDS entries. Functionality summary – search, view, edit and delete MDS customizations for ADF/WebCenter applications. Why we need such tool – MDS is black box and is really hard to revert to correct state when user creates corrupted MDS customizations or MDS breaks by itself. Red Samurai MDS Cleaner is designed to help Oracle Fusion administrators to resolve MDS related issues quickly.
