Round Trip On-Premise Integration (Part 1) – ICS to EBS by Greg Mally

clip_image002One of the big challenges with adopting Cloud Services Architecture is how to integrate the on-premise applications when the applications are behind the firewall. A very common scenario that falls within this pattern is cloud integration with Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS). To address this cloud-to-ground pattern without complex firewall configurations, DMZs, etc., Oracle offers a feature with the Integration Cloud Service (ICS) called Connectivity Agent (additional details about the Agent can be found under New Agent Simplifies Cloud to On-premises Integration). Couple this feature with the EBS Cloud Adapter in ICS and now we have a viable option for doing ICS on-premise integration with EBS. The purpose of this A-Team blog is to detail the prerequisites for using the EBS Cloud Adapter and walk through a working ICS integration to EBS via the Connectivity Agent where ICS is calling EBS (EBS is the target application). The blog is also meant to be an additional resource for the Oracle documentation for Using Oracle E-Business Suite Adapter.

The technologies at work for this integration include ICS (Inbound REST Adapter, Outbound EBS Cloud Adapter), Oracle Messaging Cloud Service (OMCS), ICS Connectivity Agent (on-premise), and Oracle EBS R12. The integration is a synchronous (request/response) to EBS where a new employee will be created via the EBS HR_EMPLOYEE_API. The flow consists of a REST call to ICS with a JSON payload containing the employee details. These details are then transformed in ICS from JSON to XML for the EBS Cloud Adapter. The EBS adapter then sends the request to the on-premise connectivity agent via OMCS. The agent then makes the call to EBS where the results will then be passed back to ICS via OMCS. The EBS response is transformed to JSON and returned to the invoking client. The following is a high-level view of the integration:

Oracle Foundations Certifications Support U.S. President Barak Obama’s “Computer Science for All” Initiative

“In the new economy, computer science isn’t optional; it’s a basic skill, along with the 3 R’s.” 

This statement came from President Barack Obama at the White House Science Fair on April 13th, 2016, where he spoke about his “Computer Science for All” initiative, which plans to bring computer science (CS) to every American student, from kindergarten through high school.

President Obama insists that all students––no matter where they’re from, what their background is, or their family income––”will get access to hands-on science technology, engineering, and math education to set them up for success, and keep the nation competitive in the 21st century.”

He is particularly interested in getting around the structural biases that the country faces today, which means getting more young women and minorities involved in technology, to help them develop the skills they need to be innovators, creators, and leaders in our modern digital economy. 

Obama followed up by explaining that the United States Government is issuing new guidance for the school districts so that they can better support computer science education, including the fact that Oracle will invest into getting 125,000 more students into computer science classes.

Other efforts are being made across the country as well–more than 500 schools in the nation are committed to expanding access to computer science. 

Oracle is proud to support the President’s CS for All initiative; in fact, Oracle has been supporting computing education since 1993, and training teachers to teach computer science in their classrooms for more than a decade through Oracle Academy

Oracle Academy and Oracle Certification offer Foundations Certifications, which focus on students in secondary schools, two-year colleges and four year colleges and universities who have participated in the Oracle Academy program and/or are studying computer science–and faculty members who teach foundational computer science classes. 

Oracle University also offers training and certification to support professionals with experience looking to advance their career and skills. Learn more at education.oracle.com.

With help from programs such as the ones offered by Oracle Academy and Oracle University, and through President Obama’s initiative, all students across the country will have the opportunity to learn computer science as part of their academic pathway, and become the next leaders in technology.
