Integration Simplified: Native Service-Oriented Architecture in Oracle E-Business Suite (OpenWorld 2008 Recap)

I'm highlighting OpenWorld 2008 presentations that cover some of the most popular E-Business Suite technology stack topics. A catalog of all of the Applications Technology track sessions with links to the presentations is available here:

It's possible to integrate the E-Business Suite with external applications via a number of different interfaces and methods, including interface tables, concurrent programs, XML messages, EDI messages, PL/SQL APIs, Business Service Objects, and Business Events.  There are over 2,500 service enabled integration points for the E-Business Suite today, with more being added regularly.

Veshaal Singh and Neeraj Chauhan from our Applications Technology Group discuss the latest techniques for integrating EBS with external applications using web services in this session:

Could you provide links to Oracle documentation that can show you how to do this. I'm interested in a cookbook type of guide that provide step-by-step guide and code examples on how to integrate with Oracle. I found reference guide type of documentations, but they are not useful if you don't know where to start. Thanks.

Hello tlc,

One place to trawl through (for any technology topic) is the "Oracle By Example" URL at http://www.oracle.com/technology/obe/start/index.html

This leads to the eBiz Best Practise Center at http://www.oracle.com/technology/tech/fmw4apps/ebs/index.html There is some information there which I hope will be helpful to you

regards

Mike

Hi, tlc,

I agree that this whole area could use some organization, which would allow people to get information in a more-structured manner. I've forwarded your comments on to the EBS Product Manager for this area, and will post any replies here.

Regards,
Steven
