SOA & Oracle Fusion Middleware
Articles on Oracle Fusion Middleware such as Oracle BPEL PM, Oracle Enterprise Service Bus, Oracle Business Rules, Web Service Manager and Service Oriented Architecture in general.
Wil je als ontwikkelaar met Oracle Service Bus (OSB), onderdeel van de Oracle SOA Stack, aan de slag op een project; als beheerder OSB willen beheren en monitoren; of als architect meer begrijpen van de positionering van het OSB, dan is deze hands-on training iets voor jou. Je leert de sterke punten, maar ook de beperkingen van OSB kennen. De juiste balans tussen theorie en praktijk, minimaal de helft van de tijd wordt besteed aan het maken van opgaven, leidt je op tot een niveau waarmee je kunt instromen op een OSB-ontwikkeltraject.
De training bevat een breed spectrum van onderwerpen, de meeste aandacht gaat uit naar de waar je als OSB-ontwikkelaar direct mee aan de slag gaat op een project.

The last few weeks I was busy re-writing pf my puppet WLS module so it fully supports the power of Puppet 3 (thanks for more than 4000 downloads on puppet forge) . With Puppet 3 we now can use Hiera, Iterations and Lambdas expression. This does not sound like a big change but with Hiera and the new Puppet Language features, I can define big WebLogic Domains without losing maintainability ( Got one customer with 5 Clusters, 25 Managed + JMS servers, more than 100 queues & topics) . With Puppet version 2 and my WLS module you need to have a lot of files (site specific classes) with at least more than 2000 a 5000 lines, here is an example of this .
In this ORAWLS module I use the default/minimal approach ( declare once in Hiera) so you won’t need to declare the same parameters over and over again. Off course you can still define everything like you did in the WLS module.
In this post I will show you the new features and how it works with Hiera.
Oracle OpenWorld is a monster event – 10Ks of attendees, thousands of sessions and 100Ks of private conversations that all help convey and define the message about Oracle’s strategy and the roadmap for its close to 4000 thousand products. Concurrent with OOW is the JavaOne conference that – at a slightly smaller scale – does the same thing for the world of the Java platform, the JVM and the Java community.
AMIS each year sends a substantial delegation to attend and contribute to the conference. We speak in many sessions, ask questions in even more and do our utmost to gather information, digest it and distill the real meaning and relevant details. We have just completed our yearly review of the Oracle OpenWorld and JavaOne 2013 conferences: a 60-page PDF document that answers the ultimate question about life, the universe and everything [Oracle].
This white paper describes the major transitions that the industry at large and Oracle in specific is going through. It explains what these transitions mean to Oracle, cause in terms of product evolution and will result in for the users. The major product announcements are listed and commented on. The roadmaps for the most relevant More >

The title of this book is clear: the term SOA Governance is fairly well known. Oracle SOA Governance 11g is a product suite from Oracle, released in February 2010:
“Oracle SOA Governance 11g consisting of Oracle Enterprise Repository, Oracle Service Registry, SOA Management with Oracle Enterprise Manager, and Oracle Web Services Manager. Oracle SOA Governance 11g, a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, enables organizations to manage their heterogeneous software project artifacts under a unified governance umbrella. Fully integrated with Oracle SOA Suite 11g, the new release [of SOA Governance 11g] helps organizations simplify governance of software development projects. Oracle SOA Governance 11g is fully integrated with Oracle AmberPoint, a leader in Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) More >
Already a year has passed since I wrote about WebLogic and Fusion Middleware provisioning with Puppet. In this year provisioning got a great boost with the popularity of DevOps and provisioning tools like Puppet, Chef or in combination with Vagrant & Oracle VirtualBox.
Provisioning without tooling can be hard for companies when they also do their own development or have many applications with its own lifecycle. For example applications can have different database vendors/ versions / types like SQL, NoSQL or Big Data and can run on different Middleware servers like .Net, JBoss or WebLogic with or without OSB & SOA Suite.
Plus with loosely coupled architecture the application probably interacts with a few databases, have a few middleware components and integration with other applications. Combine this with a new trend to have components on premise or in the cloud, you know it can take some time to set this up.
One environment is not enough for the whole application lifecycle, you need to have a development, test and acceptance environment and combine this with Continuous integration and deployment. I personally noticed that projects are heavily delayed cause there is no environment More >
Before we can describe all the new features of WebLogic 12.1.3 & 12.1.4 and compare this to the 12.1.2 version we should first take a look at the 10.3.6 version. WebLogic 10.3.6 is still the latest 11g version but Oracle will support 10.3.6 till 2018 and extended support till 2021. So Oracle’s Fusion Apps and we have enough time to migrate to WebLogic 12.1.X. Oracle also promised that the upgrade should be easy. That being said we can take look at the WebLogic 12.1.X features.
Last summer Oracle already released WebLogic 12.1.2 which has since WebLogic 12.1.1 been certified for Java EE 6 and it looks like the Java EE 7 certification is still far away, so Oracle updated the 12.1.2 version with some badly needed frameworks like WebSockets. To make the developer experience more complete Oracle added more support for Maven and it comes with a utility to synchronize a Maven repository with all the needed WebLogic libraries.
12.1.2 is also the first release, which comes with Fusion Middleware infrastructure components. For now FMW 12.1.2 contains ADF & OWSM and comes with Enterprise Manager & MDS.
WebLogic 12.1.2 replaced the BEA installer and the BSU patching utilities with the Oracle More >
