This article accompanies an article on the Architecture section of Oracle Technology Network (OTN): Implementing the Enterprise Service Bus Pattern to Expose Database Backed Services. It provides a detailed description of the implementation of the ESB architecture design pattern – the same that is introduced in the article on OTN – using Oracle Service Bus. This OSB based implementation is in terms of structure, architecture design and functionality the replica of the pure Java based implementation described in the OTN-article. OSB adds productivity, agility and many run time administrative benefits over the pure Java solution.The challenge
The challenge the organization – let us call them Stuff Inc. – is facing is simple and common: external parties have requested access to information through Web Services. This information is held in the enterprise (Oracle) database at Stuff Inc.
The architecture team decides that the implementation of the service should be done according to the ESB architecture pattern.
Their initial implementation is based on custom Java Classes, XSLT stylesheets and JDBC calls.
After some time having worked with this initial set up, they decide to More >
While preparing for the new SOA for Java Professionals training program at AMIS, I was recently working on a section discussing XQuery and more specifically the ability to use XQuery from Java as an alternative to JAXB binding to POJOs on the one hand and DOM based XPath searches on the other.
