During this week’s Oracle OpenWorld Conference, we were given some sneak peeks into the short term future of the Oracle SOA Suite. During various roadmap sessions, on the demo grounds as well as in the keynote session by Thomas Kurian (the replay of which you can see here: http://medianetwork.oracle.com/video/player/2687033686001), new features were described and demonstrated, allowing us to get a fairly good overview of what is going to come for SOA Suite – later in 2013 and sometime in 2014 (probably the first half of that year).
The SOA Suite plays an important part in the three themes Thomas Kurian set down for the Fusion Middleware suite of products: support for mobility, cloud and business user empowerment.
Some of the highlighted new aspects of Oracle SOA Suite are:
- Adapters to connect from on-premise to in-the-cloud – specifically targeting SalesForce, RightNow and also providing an SDK to create custom integrations into the cloud (the first cloud adapters will be released on 11g, before the end of the year)
- Mobile enablement by exposing RESTful services that communicate using JSON as well as adding the capability to call out to such services (12c functionality)
- Enhanced More >
Vanaf 22 september vindt in San Francisco de Oracle OpenWorld conferentie plaats: hét evenement waar Oracle haar productstrategie uit de doeken doet en waar Oracle specialisten van over de hele wereld ervaringen uitwisselen. Tegelijk met Oracle OpenWorld wordt ook de JavaOne conferentie georganiseerd, het trefpunt voor de wereldwijde Java gemeenschap. Meer dan 2.000 sessies, ruim 45.000 bezoekers en optredens van wereldberoemde artiesten; beide conferenties zijn zo groot dat zelfs de straat voor het gigantische Moscone Center door Oracle wordt overgenomen
Helaas kan niet elke Oracle of Java specialist zo maar naar San Francisco. Daarom heeft AMIS de traditie om je de inhoud en sfeer van Oracle OpenWorld mee te laten beleven. Op donderdag 5 september organiseert AMIS weer de Oracle OpenWorld Preview sessie. Nederlandse en Belgische sprekers verzorgen een preview van hun presentatie die zij enkele weken later op het podium in San Francisco gaan geven. Tijdens het diner hoor je de verhalen van eerdere conferenties, technische tips en trucs en kun je feedback geven op de presentaties.
There is no beauty contest to determine which Fusion Middleware product shone the brightest during Oracle Open World. And it is a matter of taste any way. In this case, my taste. So, subjective as it is, my verdict in terms of the MVP (most valuable product) in the category FMW during this year’s OOW conference: BPM!
The main reason for this assessment is the rapid evolution that BPM has shown in the recent passed and is defining for the near future. After having been integrated with JDeveloper and SOA Suite 11g PS3 (April 2010), the Feature Pack 4 release (August 2011) and later the PS5 release (Spring 2012) demonstrated a lot of progress. The roadmap for 2013 looks very promising too.
BPM is one of the best examples of business meeting directly with IT – taking the (existing) business processes and the organization’s strategy and structuring them in a way that allows for clear discussion, optimization and refinement, simulation and even implementation through automated means. With the many (and still expanding) options in Oracle BPM for Design Time at Run Time, the interaction between Business and IT (systems) becomes even more direct. At run time, through simple, (business) More >
Just like the previous two years, ADF will be one of the major topics at Oracle Open World 2012. Wherever you turn your head, ADF based screens will be right in your face. Almost every UI coming out of Oracle is developed using ADF. And a rapidly increasing number of developers around the world – either with a classic Forms background, a Java/JEE history or fresh from school – is adopting ADF as their primary development framework and churning out new applications in enterprises and government organizations around the world. The advance guard of ADF developers, most of them member of the ADF Enterprise Methodology Group, will convene on Sunday September 30th, on the opening day of Oracle Open World 2012. From 9 AM until 4 PM, Moscone South room 305 will be center of the ADF Universe. Expect every one – from Oracle product manager and ADF engineer, ACE and ACE Director, ADF Developer and Architect – to be there, to share experiences, envision the future and teach each other tricks and insights.
If you have any interest in ADF – because you are already working with it, or are contemplating to start working with it or just want to get a feel for what it is and what it entails to use More >
The all-star, mostly ACE(D) team consisting of Lonneke, Steven, Luc, Edwin, Ronald and Lucas did a very entertaining jam session with Fusion Middleware most of all day yesterday at the OBUG 2012 Connect Conference (Oracle Benelux User Group). The third performance of its kind – ODTUG 2011 and UKOUG 2011 in Long Beach, California (USA) and Birmingham (UK) being the preceding gigs – successfully realized an end-to-end business process implementation with ingredients such as ADF, JHeadstart, Human Task, BPEL, Mediator, AQ, Event Delivery Network, Technology Adapters, UMS for Emails en of course the database.
In front of a live audience, the challenge was outlined. The high level design introduced and the various components discussed. The left-hand screen (for the audience) displayed the business process and the work done to it in terms of design and implementation. The screen in the middle demonstrated the user interface development using ADF and the right hand screen played various roles, from service development to Enterprise Manager display, BPM worklist and Email client.
The members of the band played the following instruments: Steven on ADF and JHeadstart, Luc on ADF and ADF More >
Next Tuesday, 24th of April in the MECC in Maastricht during the Oracle Benelux User Group conference, an all star team of Oracle Fusion Middleware specialists will present and perform a very special session: a live and interactive application development demonstration. This session is planned in two parts: 11.00-12.45 and 14.30-15.45.
Many articles and presentations discuss various parts of Oracle Fusion Middleware, such as ADF or SOA Suite, WebCenter or Oracle Service Bus. Usually they do so in an isolated fashion and not seldom only in a theoretical (‘slideware’) fashion. In this very special session, attendees will see at close range how it all comes together and what steps are necessary to create a real end-to-end FMW application. A team of brave developers (doing database, ADF, SOA Suite, OSB and BPM) will develop an end-to-end Fusion Middleware application over the course of the afternoon. Their work will be monitored live on a number of big screens, while a moderator solicits audience suggestions for functional requirements and explains what is being done.
