Improve performance and maintenance of heavily used SOA composites by Cattle Crew

As stated in a previous post, heavily used transient BPEL processes should be configured with some well-defined parameters in order to avoid storing too much data in the database, thus optimizing performance.

However, even if BPEL processes inside the composite are configured this way, data of other components like mediators and the composite itself are all stored in the database. How much information is stored can be influenced by the audit level setting. As of documentation, the audit levels are defined as follows:

  • Off: No composite instance tracking and payload tracking information is collected. No more composite instances can be created. No logging is performed. Note that disabling logging and the display of instances in Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control Console can result in a slight performance increase for processing instances. Instances are created, but are not displayed.
  • Development: Enables both composite instance tracking and payload detail tracking. However, this setting may impact performance. This level is useful largely for testing and debugging purposes.
  • Production: Composite instance tracking is collected, but the Oracle Mediator service engine does not collect payload details and the BPEL process service engine does not collect payload details for assign activities (payload details for other BPEL activities are collected). This level is optimal for most normal production operations.

faultsGenerally, the SOA Infrastructure audit level is set to Production or Development - depending on the environment – and the composites are set to inherit this audit level. In case of an intensively used composite this means that a lot of data is persisted in the database.
The audit level, however, can be overridden for every composite. Since the data from the transient, short-lived composites is not needed, the setting Off for the relevant composite should be an interesting option to consider. Three questions must be answered:

  • How much information is persisted from the composite instance?
  • How much information is persisted from the component instances inside the composite?
  • What happens in case of an error?

With Oracle BPM Suite 11g PS6 the modeling, simulation, implementation and execution of business processes in a multi-user environment is straightforward – Danilo Schmiedel , OPITZ CONSULTING

imageWe know quite a few companies who are in the situation that processes are unpredictable, complex, difficult to model and versatile. Their software users complain that they cannot make proper business decisions because they are forced to certain process steps and their processes rely on worker knowledge and involve a lot of human participants. Think about a claim notification after a car accident - it is very difficult to model each potential option of it and a lot of effort and time is necessary to bring all varieties into the process. Think about the user interface – it has to be very dynamic in order to make optimal business decisions. With Oracle BPM Suite 11.1.1.7 and its new case management functionalities we are now ready to address requirements like those mentioned above. This is the base to provide complete BPM solutions. I couldn’t wait to play with the software and I am really happy to discuss and demonstrate the new product capabilities with our customers. Danilo Schmiedel , OPITZ CONSULTING

BPM PS6 greatest things are the improved web based development experience with process composer- Torsten Winterberg, OPITZ CONSULTING

OPITZ CONSULTING is already using Oracle BPM Suite 11g in several successful projects. We wereimage very pleased to see the investment Oracle is putting into this tooling, with PS6 being more a major release than just a patch set. We took part in the PS6 beta program and therefore had the chance to test all the new functionality in detail. Greatest things are the improved web based development experience with process composer, which became much more mature. Player is a great feature to quickly understand modeling consequences. Most important for us are the new case management features. A bunch of customers is waiting for this new level in bpm projects – interesting times are ahead. Torsten Winterberg, OPITZ CONSULTING

Connect to multiple SOA / BPM Virtual Machines from different computers in your network by Danilo Schmiedel

Today I’d like to explain how to share instances of Oracle's Pre-built Virtual Machine for SOA Suite and BPM Suite across different computers in your network.

Three requirements I had to address:

  1. Call of external services like GeoNames (http://www.geonames.org/postal-codes/) from within the BPM Suite VM
  2. Connection to multiple BPM Suite VMs from Host (e.g. JDeveloper and Browser)
  3. Connection to multiple BPM Suite VMs from different developer computers in the network
  4. Share data between VMs and developer computers via FTP

The default options already support connections between host and client. However the target here was to address multiple independent VMs from different computers in the same network. The following settings worked in my environment:

1) Start the Oracle VM VirtualBox Manager and open network settings of the VM. Read the full article here.

Thanks for the nice ink–OPITZ CONSULTING @ OOW 2011

Welcome to San Francisco and Oracle OpenWorld! This sentence became true since I have the pleasure of attending Oracle Open World 2011. What can I expect? Five days in San Francisco packed with Oracle technologies – from the newest hardware and software products to sneak peeks at what’s coming soon. It started last Sunday on the 4th of October with the keynote of Larry Ellison, Oracle CEO. “The power of parallel-everywhere architecture” was his theme. If you are interested you can watch the Opening Keynote on demand on oracle.com. As part of his speech he announced Oracle Exalytics – a Business Intelligence Machine, which provides extreme in-memory analytics performance.  

Yesterday Thomas Kurian, executive vice president Product Development, introduced new software products that deliver the performance of all the engineered systems (Exadata Database, Exalogic Elastic Cloud, SPARC SuperCluster and Exalytics). Furthermore he introduced Oracle Big Data Appliance and announced the release of the Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c, a centralized console for managing cloud computing systems. By the way: the “c” stands for cloud.

But that’s not all! Before OpenWorld I visited the Oracle Headquarter in Redwood Shores. Of course it was very exciting and I had the chance to discuss customer cases and project solutions in a lot of interesting meetings. Special thanks to Jürgen Kress for organizing the SOA & BPM Partner Advisory Council! There a group of Oracle Ace Directors discussed together with the Oracle product management future directions and improvements. The day after I was able to see how beautiful San Francisco is! Again thanks to Jürgen who arranged a very nice sightseeing tour!!!!
