Implementing Coherence and OWSM out-of-process on OSB 12c by David Saes

Introduction

Enterprise Deployment Guide for Oracle SOA Suite states that we should segregate Oracle Web Service Manager (OWSM) and if we plan to use Result Caching heavily with OSB we should segregate Coherence from OSB Managed Server too, but to perform these tasks at WebLogic 12c is quite different than old version 11g. This article describes how to create an OSB domain and segregate (or “out-of-process”) OWSM and Coherence Servers from OSB Managed Servers, our desired domain is covered by the following image:

Tested Environment

  • Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c (12.1.3.0.0) Infrastructure
  • Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c (12.1.3.0.0) Service Bus
  • Oracle JDK 7u75
  • Linux

Installation Steps

I’m assuming that all Installation steps are already done before, and I’ll not cover them on this article to not be boring, the installation steps are:

(Note: always certify your system meets the Requirements and Supported Platform):

Domain Configuration

Now we already have installed the OSB binaries, we need to configure the domain using the Configuration Wizard, my Oracle Home is /u01/oracle/middleware/fmw1213 and to start the Configuration Wizard we need to go to $ORACLE_HOME/oracle_common/common/bin and execute:

$ ./config.sh

Choose “Create a new domain” and choose the Domain Location as you prefer (in my case it will be /u01/oracle/domains/OSBDomain) and Click in Next button:

clip_image004

Select the Template “Oracle Service Bus”, and the templates: “WebLogic Advanced Web Services for JAX-RPC Extension”, “ODSI XQuery 2004 Components”, “Oracle Enterprise Manager”, “Oracle WSM Policy Manager”, “Oracle JRF” and “WebLogic Coherence Cluster Extension” will be selected too, then Click in Next button:

clip_image006

Choose the Application Location as you prefer (in my case it will be /u01/oracle/domains/applications/OSBDomain) and Click in Next button:

clip_image008

Define the Administrator Account User and password (in my case it will be weblogic for User and welcome1 for Password) and Click in Next button:

clip_image010

Select “Production” on Domain Mode and Choose the JDK appropriate and Click in Next button:

clip_image012

Enter your Database connection and RCU data then click in “Get RCU Configuration”, after we verify everything is OK click in Next button:

clip_image014

On Component Datasources click in Next button:

clip_image016

On JDBC Test verify if everything is OK and click in Next button:

clip_image018

Select “Administration Server”, “Node Manager”, “Managed Servers, Clusters and Coherence” and Click in Next button:

clip_image020

On Administration Server enter the “Server Name” and “Listen Port” as you prefer, on “Listen Address” as EDG states use a virtual host (in my case it will be AdminServer for Server Name, admin-vip for Listen Address and 7001 for Listen Port), on “Server Groups” leave “Unspecified” and click in Next button:

clip_image022

Choose the “Node Manager Type” and “Node Manager Credentials” as you prefer (in my case it will be Per Domain Default Location for Node Manager Type, nmuser for Username and welcome1 for Password) and click in Next button:

clip_image024

On Managed Servers screen, we will change the Server Group for OSB Server from “OSB-MGD-SVRS-COMBINED” to “OSB-MGD-SVRS-ONLY”, and Click in clip_image026 button to add our OWSM Managed Server then we will associate the Server Groups: “JFR-MAN-SVR” and “WSMPM-MAN-SVR” for it, then click in Next button:

clip_image028

Create two new cluster as following, you can adapt the names to your standards (Note: Always set Frontend Host to OSB)

Cluster Name

Cluster Address

Frontend Host

Frontend HTTP Port

Frontend HTTPS

cluster_osb

osb-node-01-vip:7010

osb-dev.internal

80

443

cluster_owsm

owsm-node-01-vip:7020

Click in Next button:

clip_image030

Associate each Server on your respective cluster then click in Next button:

clip_image032

Enter the name for Coherence Cluster and an Unicast Port Listen (in my case it will be CoherenceCluster for Cluster Name and 0 for Unicast Listen Port), if you leave port 0 it will create an offset for the Managed Servers, then click in Next button:

clip_image034

Enter the Machine information (in my case it will be machine1 for Name, machine1-vip for Node Manager Listen Address and 5556 for Node Manager Listen Port) then click in Next button:

clip_image036

Associate the Managed Servers to Machine created then click in Next button:

clip_image038

Click in Create button on Configuration Summary:

clip_image040

After the Domain was created, click in Next button:

clip_image042

Click in Finish button:

clip_image044

Here we’ve already segregated the OSB and OWSM in two different Managed Servers.

Starting OSB domain

Now we start our OSB domain created in previous step, my Domain Location or $DOMAIN_HOME is /u01/oracle/domains/OSBDomain, and to start the Admin Server we need to go $DOMAIN_HOME, execute startWebLogic.sh shell script, when asked enter the admin user name and password and wait the process to be in RUNNING state:

$ ./startWebLogic.sh

Note: If during the Admin startup you see the stack like below, it is because the Admin Server is trying to reach wsm-pm during startup. As wsm-pm is targeted only to Managed Servers which have not been started yet, this must fail.

The connection to wsm-pm will be retried, and will be established once wsm-pm is available in the domain. (more details see the MOS Note: 1948727.1)

Creating Coherence Managed Server

Now we need to create our WebLogic Cluster and WebLogic Managed Server to keep our Coherence data from OSB Resulting Cache, this process is very different than the configuration on OSB 11g, in order you need to follow this steps:

  1. Create a file named createAndDeployCoherence.py and paste the following text:

## Variables

username='weblogic'

password='welcome1'

domainURI='t3://admin-vip:7001'

ClusterWLSCoherence_Name='cluster_coherence'

ManagedWLSCoherence_Name='coherence_server1'

ListenAddressCoherence='coherence-node-01-vip'

PortCoherence=7030

ClusterCoherence='CoherenceCluster'

MachineCoherence='machine1'

OracleHome='/u01/oracle/middleware/fmw1213/osb'

## End Variables

connect(username,password,domainURI);

edit();

startEdit();

#Create Cluster

cd('/')

cmo.createCluster(ClusterWLSCoherence_Name)

cd('/Clusters/'+ClusterWLSCoherence_Name)

cmo.setClusterMessagingMode('unicast')

#Create Server

cd('/')

cmo.createServer(ManagedWLSCoherence_Name)

cd('/Servers/'+ManagedWLSCoherence_Name)

cmo.setListenAddress(ListenAddressCoherence)

cmo.setListenPort(PortCoherence)

cmo.setCluster(getMBean('/Clusters/'+ClusterWLSCoherence_Name))

cmo.setMachine(getMBean('/Machines/'+MachineCoherence))

#Disable SSL

cd('/Servers/'+ManagedWLSCoherence_Name+'/SSL/'+ManagedWLSCoherence_Name)

cmo.setEnabled(false)

#Add to Coherence Cluster

cd('/Servers/'+ManagedWLSCoherence_Name)

cmo.setCoherenceClusterSystemResource(getMBean('/CoherenceClusterSystemResources/'+ClusterCoherence))

cd('/CoherenceClusterSystemResources/'+ClusterCoherence)

cmo.addTarget(getMBean('/Servers/'+ManagedWLSCoherence_Name))

cd('/Clusters/'+ClusterWLSCoherence_Name)

cmo.setCoherenceClusterSystemResource(getMBean('/CoherenceClusterSystemResources/'+ClusterCoherence))

cd('/CoherenceClusterSystemResources/'+ClusterCoherence)

cmo.addTarget(getMBean('/Clusters/'+ClusterWLSCoherence_Name))

#Deploy resultcache

progress=deploy('resultcache',OracleHome+'/lib/apps/resultcache.gar',ClusterWLSCoherence_Name,block='true',upload='true')

progress.printStatus()

print

print

print 'Coherence Server has been configured'

print

print

save();

activate();

disconnect();

exit();

  1. Modify the script variables according to your installation settings. The variables are:

username – The Admin username created for the Domain

password – The Admin password created for the Domain

domainURI – The Url for your Admin Server

ClusterWLSCoherence_Name – The new name for WebLogic Cluster to create for the Coherence Managed Servers

ManagedWLSCoherence_Name – The new name for Coherence Managed Server

ListenAddressCoherence – The virtual host for the new Coherence Managed Server

PortCoherence – The port for the new Coherence Managed Server

ClusterCoherence – The Coherence created to the new Coherence Managed Servers

MachineCoherence – The Machine created to managed the new Coherence Managed Servers

OracleHome - Oracle Service Bus installation directory

  1. In another SSH session run wlst.sh shell script asking our createAndDeployCoherence.py script created previously, the wlst.sh in my case resides on /u01/oracle/middleware/fmw1213/oracle_common/common/bin/wlst.sh:

$ /u01/oracle/middleware/fmw1213/oracle_common/common/bin/wlst.sh createAndDeployCoherence.py

<WLContext.close() was called in a different thread than the one in which it was created.>

  1. Log into WebLogic console: http://admin-vip:7001/console

Expand Environment in the left menu and select Servers

i) Click on server osb_server1 and go to Server Start tab on Arguments, add the following parameters and Save your configuration:

-DOSB.coherence.cluster=CoherenceCluster -Dtangosol.coherence.distributed.localstorage=false

ii) Click on server owsm_server1 and go to Server Start tab on Arguments, add the following parameters and Save your configuration:

-DOSB.coherence.cluster=CoherenceCluster -Dtangosol.coherence.distributed.localstorage=false

iii) Click on server coherence_server1 and go to Server Start tab on Arguments, add the following parameters and Save your configuration:

-DOSB.coherence.cluster=CoherenceCluster

  1. Start All Managed Servers

Conclusion

Now we have an OSB domain configured using the best practices that EDG says and also we can use the best that Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c can deliver.

Install 12c SOA and OSB at Exalogic vServer coherence issue by Matthias Fuchs

clip_image001Preperation

For a Proof of Concept we need SOA and OSB Installation a virtual Exalogic Server. The database is hosted on a Exadata as a pluggable 12c DB. The first steps are the same as a normal install:

· install binaries Version 12.1.3.0.0

· create RCU repository

· start configure domain

The configuration of the domain looks like

configuration for domain

I finished the configuration without any changes. It succeeded. The configuration of the domain takes about 5 minutes. Read the complete article here.

Migrating Service Bus 11g to 12c (and the XQuery 1.0 upgrade) by Jan van Zoggel

clip_image001You can easily import an Oracle Service Bus 11g project archive (JAR) in your JDeveloper 12c SB application (File -> Import)

XQuery upgrade:

Howver, when you import your Oracle Service Bus 11g project you will most likely import XQuery transformations as well. When you look at the XQuery editor in JDeveloper 12c you will probably notice that you only have “source” mode and not a graphical editor. Besides that the XQuery files show a “04” icon.

Since the early days of AquaLogic Service Bus the company formerly known as BEA (TCFKAB) supported the W3C working draft of “XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Functions and Operators” dated 23 July 2004.
In addition TCFKAB supported a number of extension functions easy to recognize with their fn-bea prefix. Since then the world moved on and XQuery made it to version 1.0 in 2007. So now in 12c there is a way to upgrade your XQuery 2004 files to version 1.0. Read the complete article here.

SOA 12c – EDN Logging by Siva

clip_image002In 12c EDN uses Weblogic JMS to publish and deliver the Business Events. So edn-db-log (which we use in 11g) will not work when Weblogic JMS is used.

In 12c, you can enable EDN logging navigating to soa-infra –> Logs –> Log Configuration and search for logger oracle.integration.platform.blocks.event as shown below. Set the logging level as you desired.

SOA Suite 12c: Topology Suggestions by Jay Kasi

In this article, I make some suggestions and provide opinions on topologies recommended in SOA Suite 12c.

· Typically Service Bus and SOA Suite belong in different tiers in an end to end architecture so they would be in separate domains. However if Service Bus is used primarily for mediating and providing routing for SOA Suite Composites in a domain, it could be in the same domain, but typically in separate clusters for optimum performance and scalability. However it  is possible starting in 12c to have Service Bus and SOA Suite in the same cluster.

· Governance products like OER and UDDI should not be in a SOA Suite or Service Bus domain. They should be in a separate domain. OER should be in a separate domain from UDDI.

· One consideration when deciding on topologies is that Upgrade is always domain wide. All products deployed to the domain must release in the same release train and you should be willing to upgrade all of them at the same time.

· You can target multiple products to the same cluster by targeting the appropriate user extensible server group to  the servers in the cluster.

1. SOA Suite is targeted to a server by targeting either the user extensible server group SOA-MGD-SVRS or SOA-MGD-SVRS-ONLY.

2. Service Bus is targeted to a server by targeting either the user extensible server group OSB-MGD-SVRS-COMBINED or OSB-MGD-SVRS-ONLY.

3. BAM is targeted to a server by targeting either the user extensible server group BAM12-MGD-SVRS or BAM12-MGD-SVRS-ONLY.

4. MFT is targeted to a server by targeting either the user extensible server group MFT-MGD-SVRS or MFT-MGD-SVRS-ONLY.

5. ESS is targeted to a server by targeting the user extensible server group ESS-MGD-SVRS. Read the complete article here

Protecting Sensitive Data in SOA Suite 12c by Jennie DeRosa

clip_image002

Given the recent security breaches, data security should always be a concern when designing and creating IT solutions. In particular, what are some considerations that should be made when implementing a solution within the Oracle SOA Suite? Is it sufficient to protect the data using WS-Security/SSL or is additional security needed? If you have sensitive data traversing through the SOA Suite then additional security must be considered.

As noted within the National Institute Standards and Technology (NIST) publication, ‘to appropriately protect the confidentiality of personally identifiable information (PII), organizations should use a risk-based approach’. To understand what is considered PII, or sensitive data, along with recommendations to protect PII read Guide to Protecting the Confidentiality of Personally Identifiable Information.

WS-Security and SSL only will protect data outside a SOA composite or Service Bus. Once the data hits either one of these, it is viewable in clear text within audit trails, console or logs. This means sensitive data is viewable within the console and log, causing this data to be unencrypted at rest. An example of this is shown below. Anyone with access to EM (Enterprise Manager) could view the sensitive data just by opening the audit trail of a process:

SOA Suite 12c – Business Events and Consistency Levels by Siva

clip_image002

I have chosen Business Events as first feature to explore in recent release of SOA Suite12c. Also, I want to cross verify my earlier observations in 11g.

The initial observation is, now the new SOA project will have the folders for different artifacts and the folder Events is for edl files.

Secondly, 12c   supports One and Only one and  Guaranteed consistency only and no longer supports immediate. Also new property Durable is added to event subscriptions.

Even migration of 11g composites to 12c is resulting into error, if composite uses immediate consistency level. We have to manually make this change by choosing either of the 2 supported consistency levels. Read the complete article here.
