Synchronizing databases through BPEL services by Lykle Thijssen

clip_image002Introduction

This blog post is about how to synchronize two databases through BPEL, focusing on transaction, rollback and fault handling.

During a project, I’ve encountered a situation where we wanted to migrate from an old database to a new one. However, in order to gradually move external systems from the old to the new database, it was required that both databases would be kept in sync for a limited amount of time. Apart from the obvious database tools, for example Oracle Golden Gate, this can be done through the service layer as well and that’s what this article is about. I will explain how I have done it with a strong focus on fault handling, since that’s the most complicated part of the deal. In this case, since keeping things in sync is what we’re aiming for, a rollback needs to be performed on one database when the other fails to process the update.

One of the requirements is that it should be easy to throw the synchronization code away, as it has no place in our future plans. Another requirement is that the service layer should return faults in a decent manner.

Preparation

In order to enable out-of-the-box rollback functionality, make sure that the data sources connecting to both databases are XA enabled. As there is plenty of information about this subject, I will not get into detail about it in this blog.

Now we will be developing two services:

  • SalesOrderBusinessService: a BPEL process that receives messages from a BPM process and forwards them to our integration service
  • UpdateSalesOrderIntegrationService: a BPEL process that receives messages from SalesOrderBusinessService and updates two databases through adapters

We need to make sure that both services have a fault specified in their wsdl operation in order to return the recoverable fault. Read the complete article here.

Simplifying Error Handling with Custom XPath Function by Dan Reynebeau

clip_image001How many times have you developed error handling logic in a BPEL process and want to collect error information to pass to an error handler service?  There are many xpath functions that are currently available and can be utilized individually to collect all the necessary data, however this can become a time consuming task when you have several catch blocks and many processes.  This is a case where re-use is a must.  Simplifying the collection of the error data will ensure that the error handling is completed and performed in a consistent manner across processes.

Re-using the logic doesn’t imply copying the logic to another process, this leads to maintenance problems since we will inherently forget every place it was copied.  You could create small utility BPEL processes that manage the logic but that can be a bit heavy weight and probably overkill.

Custom XPath functions come to the rescue and solve this problem by providing a framework to generate a custom java class that can perform the collection of all the error data and return a XML document in the structure of the specific error handler.

Now we know we want to create a custom XPath function to populate the following CommonErrorHandler.xsd, so here are the steps required. Read the complete article here.

Stream Explorer Patch Update 2

clip_image002Today we posted the latest Stream Explorer Patch Update 2 on our Oracle Technology Network (OTN) Downloads page.

The attached document highlights the software updates and in addition, new samples are now available that you can have automatically included in your user experience.

Watch out! Oracle Stream Explorer Version 2 is in the pipe, scheduled to be showcased at Oracle Openworld San Francisco 2015, so feature rich I would take all day to describe, but in our opinion, it will take this technology to a whole new level, challenging competitors to even keep up.
