SOA 12c – EDN Articles by Silva

SOA 12c – EDN – Mapping to Custom Topic with Weblogic JMS

EDN documentation says:

You can create additional JMS topics (Oracle WebLogic Server JMS or AQ JMS) and map different event types to these additional JMS topics in Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control.

In this post, we will see how to do this mapping of Business Event to Custom Topic.

This involves 2 steps:

  • Create a new Topic.
  • Modify the business event mapping in EM.

Creating a new Topic

Navigate to Services –> Messaging –> JMS Modules –> SoaJMSModule in Weblogic Administration console. Read the complete article here .

B2B 12c – HTTP Generic Channel with transport callout by Bruno Neves Alves

First of all, season's greetings to everyone!

Then, let me introduce this post saying that, already in the version 11g, a generic HTTP listening channel for message posting to B2B using the HTTP protocol was available. Any configured trading partner could use this generic channel to post messages to B2B.

A single common URL was available by default:
http://[host-name]:[host-port]/b2b/httpReceiver

In this way, a single listening channel is able to serve multiple trading partners for every HTTP communications with B2B.

When this channel is used, the process follows the default steps for message processing, namely:

Sender identification (i.e. using HTTP Header);

Document protocol/version/type identification ;

Agreement identification;

Message processing (parsing and validation);

Synchronous delivery to a back-end application.

The only differentiation factor is: since this channel is generic and not configurable or even available on the list of listening channels in B2B console, make it unavailable for channel callout configuration.

This has now changed with the 12c version.

With the version 12c of B2B is now possible to define a generic HTTP transport callout and associate it with a specific transport level callout.

As of now, this is driven by an B2B configuration Fusion Middleware property that needs to be added on Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control

Inside Fusion Middleware 12c: Increasing Scalability with JMS Adapter 12c by Stefan Koser

clip_image002JMS Adapter (also known as Oracle JCA Adapter for JMS) is a component available with Oracle SOA Suite or Oracle Service Bus (OSB) which provides a very powerful way to use  the Java Messaging Service (JMS) for sending or receiving messages.

The most important goals for optimizing an SOA Suite or OSB environment are to make sure that

  • Each node of the cluster makes effective use of Java threads and other resources.
  • The cluster will be able to scale efficiently when adding new nodes.

In this article, we will show how JMS Adapter in the new release 12c can be configured in high throughput scenarios to use much fewer threads that in earlier versions. This means, that adding new nodes to the cluster will not require additional threads in all other nodes. As a result, a cluster with many nodes will perform and scale much better.

There are 2 main use cases of JMS Adapter with SOA Suite or OSB:

  • Inbound activation of a composite by receiving messages from a JMS destination (queue or topic)
  • Publishing messages from a composite to a JMS destination

We will focus in this article on the first use case for receiving messages. Only in that scenario – for listening to a queue, the activation framework of the Java EE Connector Architecture (JCA) layer will start a number of threads for JMS Adapter.

First, we will describe how many threads will be created by default or in versions prior to 12c, and then how this changes when using the new feature available with 12c.

Default thread creation for JMS Adapter

For the first example, we will assume a scenario with a 2-node SOA cluster where a Uniform Distributed Queue (UDQ) “jms/TestQueue” is defined and one SOA composite with an inbound JMS Adapter is listening to this queue. See line 2 of the JMS destination overview in Weblogic server in the following table:

With the default behavior, the number of threads used to read messages from this queue in each Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is one. This is derived from the default of the corresponding configuration parameter: Read the complete article here.

Protecting Sensitive Data in Oracle SOA Suite 12c by Jennie DeRosa

clip_image001

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: Read the complete article here.

    • Which data will be purged by the Oracle SOA Suite 11g (PS6 11.1.1.7) purge script?
    • List of composite instance states that will be considered for purging by the purge script
    • How to install the Oracle SOA Suite 11g (PS6 11.1.1.7) purge script?
    • How to execute the Oracle SOA Suite 11g (PS6 11.1.1.7) purge script?
    • What is Looped purging (Oracle SOA Suite 11g (PS6 11.1.1.7) purge script)?
    • What is Parallel purging (Oracle SOA Suite 11g (PS6 11.1.1.7) purge script)?
    • Description of parameters used by the Oracle SOA Suite 11g (PS6 11.1.1.7) purge script
    • Example 1: Executing the Oracle SOA Suite 11g (PS6 11.1.1.7) purge script for all composites
    • Example 2: Executing the Oracle SOA Suite 11g (PS6 11.1.1.7) purge script for a specific composite

How does Oracle SOA Suite 11g (PS6 11.1.1.7) store data?

SOA Suite uses a database schema called SOAINFRA (collection of database objects such as tables, views, procedures, functions etc.) to store data required for the running of SOA Suite applications. The SOAINFRA (SOA Infrastructure) schema is also referred to as the ‘dehydration store’ acting as the persistence layer for capturing SOA Suite data.

Message Aggregation in Oracle SOA Suite 12c by Jennie DeRosa

clip_image002Within the Oracle SOA Suite, message aggregation is a concept that allows for multiple messages to be routed to the same BPEL process, based on a value(s) defined within the incoming payload. This is implemented within BPEL through the use of correlation sets.

To implement this, a correlation set is defined and will contain one or more properties. These properties have aliases to values within the input payload message (i.e. PurchaseOrderNumber), which are used for the correlation of messages.

Oracle SOA Suite 12c has provided a wizard that allows for easy definition of the correlation set, properties and property aliases which are all necessary for correlation to occur. Below are the steps required to configure your BPEL process to perform message aggregation via correlation set.

Configuration Steps

The first step is to create the Correlation Set. Right click on the initial receive of the process and select ‘Setup Correlation…’ Read the complete article here.
