This blog will explain how you could abstract technology behind a service so your main process will be kept clean of all kind of technology pollution like exception handling, technology adapters and correlation.
In the previous post I explained how you can access the credential store and keystore using the configurations stored in the jsp-config.xml file. I also explained how you canÂ read assertion properties. I put this code inside my base class CustomAssertion.java. This class has been repeated here below. In this post […]
With custom assertions you can create your own specific policies. There are a number of out-of-the box policy implementations already available implementing most of the common WS Security profiles and other non-security related policies like logging. If you want to create your own security policy one of the things you […]
In my last post I talked about using an out-of-the-box policy to sign your outgoing SOAP Message. Although it is not very well documented when you figure out how to configure the keystore and credential store it is quite simple to use. The problem is that the out-of-the-box policies need […]
Since 11GR1 Oracle Web Service Manager (OWSM) has been integrated with the SOA Suite. This means you can easily attach web service policies for security and management to your SOA Suite artifacts. In this post I will explain how to attach a x509 client policy and do the configurationsÂ to […]
In my current project we just started creating BPEL 1.1 processes. Then SOA Suite 11gR1PS3 came along and gave use BPEL 2.0. As we are just in the early stages of development we decided to have a look at the impact of upgrading our already build BPEL 1.1 processes to […]
Although this should not be so complicated I run into some problems I would like to share in this post. In general it is quit simple to generate a window service that starts a weblogic server. If you read the manual you see you need to create a script that […]
Some time ago I decided to take a look at virtualbox. After using some downloadable appliances I decided to install one for myself from scratch to have it configured just the way I want. This blog describes what I did to achieve this. I am still quit pleased with virtualbox. […]
In an earlier blog my colleague Peter Ebell (link) explained how you can create an extension ofÂ collaxa.cube.engine.ext.BPELXExecLet to do your coding in a regular Java environment so you have code completion and validation. In 11g no improvements have been implemented and the Java embedded activity is still a pretty dumb […]
Recently Oracle released a virtualBox virtual machine for SOA & BPM Suite 11g. In this post I will explain my first experiences with both virtualBox and this virtual machine.
