Innovative ideas for every utility

Oracle Service Bus transports available

Anthony Shorten
Senior Principal Product Manager

As outlined in the whitepaper Oracle Service Bus Integration with Oracle Utilities Application Framework (Doc Id: 1558279.1) available from My Oracle Support, the Multi-Purpose Listener (MPL) is bsing replaced by Oracle Service Bus (OSB). Whilst transaction inbound to the Oracle Utilities Application Framework based product are handled natively using Web Services, transactions outbound from the products are handled by Oracle Service Bus. Consequently a number of protocol adapters have been developed that are installed in Oracle Service Bus to allow Oracle Service Bus to initiate the following outbound communications:

  • Outbound Messages
  • Notification Download Staging (Oracle Utilities Customer Care and Billing and Oracle Public Service Revenue Management only)

The transports are now available from My Oracle Support as a patch on any OUAF and above product as Patch 18512327: OUAF Transports for OSB 1.0.0.

Installation instructions for Oracle Service Bus and Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse are included in the patch as well as the whitepaper.

    Does this OUAF transport for OSB (osb_ouaf_transports.zip ) work for OSB 12c. We have installed it on OSB . However we could not create a Proxy service.

    The runtime should work. I know there is a known issue with the OSB maintenance screens in OSB12c and the new JDev plugin.
