The Split-Join can be a very useful tool in your OSB services yet seems to be underestimated. When I did some asking around it turned out not many developers use this, even though I can come up with plenty of uses for the Split-Join. The Split-Join’s strength is in numbers, meaning it is the most powerful when you need to process a lot of pieces of similar data. For this example I used a simplified version of a project I am working on. In this project mobile devices are set to send data about rainfall to a database. The data is collected at a regular interfal creating a record and sent to the database per session which contains a large set of records. Instead of processing these records one at time I can process them concurrently and save a lot of processing (and waiting) time.
I created the XML Schema files and WSDL’s for the two services using JDeveloper and not Eclipse/OEPE because its design interface for these files is a lot more userfriendly (although this is of course personal preference). Read the complete article here.
