Therefore a GSE demo credentials are mandatory for all community members.

Once again EMEA is leading the global OPN Specialization program with more than 50% of the Middleware Specialized partners based in our region. We are excited to announce eProseed ae the first Oracle partner Specialized in SOA Suite 12c. We want to encourage you to become SOA 12c and BPM 12c Specialized and realize the benefits of Specialization e.g. promote your service offerings in the Solutions Catalog. Oracle promotes Specialized partners to the middleware customer base see for example the Fusion Middleware July Newsletter 2015.

Stream Explorer environment using Docker by Guido Schmutz

clip_image002In the past week I have been experimenting with installing Oracle Stream Explorer into a Docker container, in order to simplify provisioning development/show case environments with a single docker run command.

Docker is an open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications. Consisting of Docker Engine, a portable, lightweight runtime and packaging tool, and Docker Hub, a cloud service for sharing applications and automating workflows, Docker enables apps to be quickly assembled from components and eliminates the friction between development, QA, and production environments. As a result, IT can ship faster and run the same app, unchanged, on laptops, data center VMs, and any cloud.

You can find the corresponding docker project on my GitHub: https://github.com/gschmutz/docker-oracle-sx

Due to the Oracle licensing agreement, the Oracle software itself can not be provided in the GitHub project. So you first have to download the Java 7 SDK as well as Stream Explorer Runtime and the Stream Explorer User Experience using your own OTN login. Download the 3 artefacts into the downloads subfolder.

After downloading these files into the downloads folder, you are ready to build the Docker image: Read the complete article here.

API Gateway (OAG) : Concept & marriage with SOA & Mobile by Sudipto Desmukh

clip_image002

Oracle API Gateway is a standards-based, policy-driven, standalone software security solution that provides first line of defense in Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) environments.

It enables organizations to securely and rapidly adopt Cloud, Mobile and SOA Services by bridging the gaps and managing the interactions between all relevant systems.

Oracle Web Services Manager(OWSM) is generally used for application security of a particular service,most customers have any use cases around DMZ or Perimeter Security for Web Services. This product serves as a part of the enterprise security solution.

This would be typically for customers needing access to web services from the internet, similar to how we access a web application. OAG can do a  lot of validations
and route the requests only once those checks have passed. This may also be a typical use case for Mobile Applications which use REST Web Services at the backend.

I have seen a strong value in this security product for all SOA and Mobile projects.

Here’s a high-level request flow :

There are many advantages that OAG can provide :

–   Authentication, Authorization (Leverages existing LDAP like AD ; existing IDM platforms for this – RSA AM, CA Site Minder, Oracle Access Mgr) Read the complete article here.
