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 >
Begin 2012 verscheen bij uitgeverij Packt Publishing het Oracle Service Bus 11g Development Cookbook – een zeer praktijkgerichte beschrijving van best practices en handige werkwijzen met OSB 11g. Dit boek is geschreven door vijf OSB experts, waarvan drie uit Nederland. Op donderdag 22 maart organiseert AMIS naar aanleiding van het verschijnen van dit boek een speciaal evenement, met de drie Nederlandse auteurs – Jan van Zoggel (RUBIX), Eric Elzinga (Oracle ACE, Xenta Consultancy en AMIS Associate) en Edwin Biemond (Oracle ACE, AMIS Services) – en diverse presentaties en demonstraties van de Oracle Service Bus in de praktijk. We delen exemplaren van het boek uit en spreken over de toekomst van OSB 11g en 12c. De bijeenkomst begint om 17.00 en duurt tot pakweg 21.00 uur. De toegang is zoals altijd gratis. Aanmelden via: evenement-link.

It had been announced at Oracle Open World 2011 and sort of promised for December 2011 – a promise or at least a suggestion reiterated in early December even. But for whatever reason, it slipped – not shipped – and Christmas break that perfect time of the year for playing with new software came and went. Now at last, it has arrived. As of midnight CET on 22nd February, PS5 (18.104.22.168) was published on OTN and eDelivery (https://edelivery.oracle.com/EPD/Download/get_form?egroup_aru_number=11493752) for download.
One of the reasons for the delay was the certification of FMW 11gR1 PS5 with Fusion Applications that was done over the last few months. Apart from the additional wait time (that is now over), this is quite good and important news: when Fusion Applications certifies software components, they put those components through very rigorous and extensive tests. Additionally, when Fusion Applications adopt a specific release – even a PS release – it makes that release more important to Oracle. So we now know that PS 5 has both been tested to the max and is of strategic importance to Fusion Applications and thereby to Oracle. Adopting PS5 for us mere mortals is therefore a safe bet – More >
In a previous post I’ve explained the Schematron standard, how it works and how to use it. In the Oracle SOA Suite you can ‘Validate Semantic’ on the input (request) of a routing rule in a Mediator component by selecting a Schematron file. This is the Schemtron xml file in which you define your validation rules. The SOA Suite takes care of applying them on the request by executing the double transformation. However, to be able to get the Schematron file working you need to declare the namespaces of the input message and rewrite a report rule to an assert rule. In this post I will show you how to do this with the same business rules (so the same Schematron rules and Schematron file) as the last example in a previous blog explaining Schematron. (more…)
In my previous post I’ve shown how to create a composite in the Oracle SOA Suite with a simple decision table in a Business Rule Engine component. For that post I had used quite a simple data model resulting in a small xml/xsd tree. For our project I wanted to repeat the exercise with the real data model, so a larger xml tree defined by multiple imported xsd files. Unfortunately it wasn’t as easy as I hoped for. In this second blog post about the Business Rule Engine I’ll show you about the difficulties I had and how I’ve solved them. (more…)
For educational purposes I’ve created a cookbook in powerpoint format on how to create a simple decision table in Oracle SOA Suite with a Business Rule engine. To share this I’ve uploaded it to slideshare and post it here in the Amis blog as well. (more…)
