Best Practices for SOA Suite 11g to 12c Upgrade
By Jay Kasi

A lot of effort has been put in by Oracle to make this major upgrade as smooth and easy as possible. The basic approach is to install SOA Suite 12c in a new oracle home and upgrade the domain and schemas in place. Customers undertaking the upgrade are primarily interested in a smooth upgrade, minimizing the number of manual steps in the upgrade, reduce the down time to a minimum, and minimize or eliminate any changes to client apps that use SOA APIs or web interfaces.
The key to a successful and smooth upgrade experience are the preupgrade preparations that you perform. The upgrade must be planned carefully. If the preupgrade preparations are not performed, there is a possibility that upgrade will fail in the middle or the system does not behave properly post upgrade. The only recourse to a failed production system upgrade is to roll it back from a full backup.
If your SOA domain includes BAM, then the upgrade is more complex because BAM does not support inplace upgrade. Please read the documentation carefully. The basic idea is to migrate the whole BAM deployment to a seperate domain using export/import, remove BAM from the soa domain during upgrade, and upgrade your soa domain to interop with the bam 11g domain. Later slowly and carefully migrate to BAM 12c from BAM 11g.
There are six top steps that should be performed before upgrade of your production system as a best practice.
·         Carefully review the prerequisites for upgrade in the documentation. Some of the prerequisites are checked upfront before we upgrade the schema in Upgrade Assistant but not all. Read all relevant upgrade documentation before starting on upgrade. Some of the key prerequisites are:
·         Can only upgrade a domain that is or Migrate to a supported starting point before upgrade.
·         Can only upgrade a deployment using a 64 bit JVM. Migrate to 64 bit JVM before upgrade.
·         Can only upgrade a production domain not using XE DB and is not an admin server only domain.
·         Can only upgrade a domain using LDAP or DB OPSS policy store. Migrate file based policy store to DB or LDAP based policy store before upgrade. Read the complete article here.

Ovum Lauds Oracle SOA Suite 12c, Differentiates Cloud and Mobile Integration By Mala Ramakrishnan

Ovum has recently published a paper on Oracle SOA Suite and lays out differentiation.  According to the paper, with the latest release of Oracle SOA  Suite, Oracle has again proved that it can swiftly respond to customer requirements while ensuring continuity in product strategy to offer a unified platform for a wide range of integration requirements. Here is an excerpt from the paper:
Oracle SOA Suite 12c has introduced several new features and capabilities that resonate with the current integration priorities of enterprises, especially cloud and mobile integration. What differentiates Oracle SOA Suite 12c from competing platforms is its emphasis on simplifying the process involved in the development, testing, and execution of integration flows connecting a wide range of applications.
This developer-centric approach is evident in the simple approach offered by the Oracle Cloud Adapter software development kit (SDK) for the development of new adapters to software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications. Furthermore, Oracle Cloud Adapters handle several inherent intricacies of SaaS integration, such as session management, data mapping, and specific security requirements to help reduce development efforts and costs. The developer-centric approach is also evident in the developer tooling enhancements introduced as part of Oracle SOA Suite 12c release.
Another noteworthy feature is the integration between Oracle MFT and Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle B2B 12c, which provides support for complex orchestration use cases, such as the extension of enterprise applications to B2B e-commerce and cloud integration scenarios.
Key messages
§ Oracle has further refined its approach to cloud and mobile integration.
§ Developer productivity is a key theme for Oracle SOA Suite 12c.
§ Oracle MFT strengthens the overall value proposition of Oracle’s integration middleware stack. Read the complete article here.

Set-up a 12c SOA/BPM Infrastructure by Middleware Snippets 

In this post, we will show how to create automation scripts in order to set-up middleware environments.
In the example, we will use the following software
·         Oracle JDK
·         Fusion Middleware Infrastructure (fmw_12. which can be obtained from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud
·         Oracle SOA Suite (fmw_12. which can be obtained from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud
First, we have to decide which directory structure we are going to use. Below an example is given in which the binaries (that create the run-time) are separated from the configuration.

FMW 12.1.3 – Invoking Enterprise Scheduler Service Web Services from SoapUI by Lucas Jellema 

image.pngThe Fusion Middleware 12.1.3 platform contains the ESS or Enterprise Scheduler Service. This service can be used as asynchronous, schedule based job orchestrator. It can execute jobs that are Operating System jobs, java calls (local Java or EJB), PL/SQL calls, and Web Service calls (synchronous, asynchronous and one-way) including SOA composite, Service Bus and ADF BC web services.
Jobs and schedules can be defined from client applications through a  Java API or through the Enterprise Manager FMW Control user interface. Additionally, ESS exposes a web service through which (pre defined) jobs can be scheduled. This web service can be invoked from BPEL processes in SOA composites – or from any component that knows how to invoke a SOAP Web Service.

In this article I will briefly demonstrate how to invoke the ESS Web Service from SoapUI. I will not describe how to create the Job Definition – I will assume two pre existing Job Definitions: HelloWorld (of type PL/SQL job) and SendFlightUpdateNotification of type SOA composite based one way Web Service. Both Job Definitions contain application properties – parameters that can be set for every job instance and that are used in the job execution. When invoking the ESS Web Service to schedule a job, values for these properties can be passed in.

There is one tricky aspect with ESS: jobs cannot be run as anonymous users. So if ESS does not know who makes the request for scheduling a job, it will not perform the request. It returns an error such as ESS-02002 User anonymous does not have sufficient privilege to perform operation submitRequest JobDefinition://oracle/apps/ess/custom/saibot/SendFlightUpdateNotification.

To ensure we do not run into this problem, we have to attach a WSM security policy to the ESS Web Service and pass a WS Security Header with valid username and password in our request. Then the job request is made in the context of a validated user and this problem goes away.
The steps to go through: Read the complete article here.

FMW 12c on the Cloud - Part 1: Prepare the Environment by Luigi Banzato 

Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c is out there. And now it bring the wonders of SOA/BPM quick start, where you can get you development environment setup in 4 clicks. However, at some stage everyone always needs to setup a server, so I've been taking a look at how to do that in the cloud. This is the part 1 of of the tutorial on how to install and configure Fusion Middleware 12c on the Cloud.

SOA12c -Service Bus Resequencer by Vivek Garg 

Service Bus ResequencerWe often come under such situation when we receive message from source system which are not in proper sequence but target system need to receive that in proper sequence. To resolve this we need to re-sequence the messages and process them in proper sequence.   Re-sequencing is term used when we need to process incoming messages in sequence which are not coming in proper sequence. Design and developer need to think on this re-sequencing when they encounter such requirement as e described above. E.g. suppose we are receiving sales orders from source system, sales order contain one field with the name sales order number, suppose source system sends sales order in this sequence ( 1, 4,3,2,5,6,7 ) but target system need sales order in this sequence (1,2,3,4,5,6,7) , in this case we need to do re-sequencing of message.
In 11g version of Oracle SOA Suite, re-sequencing was there in Mediator component but this feature was not available for BPEL and Service Bus. In 12c release, this feature is provided for service bus. We can set this feature either at pipeline level or at operation level. In this post, we will discuss on that. We will only discuss about pipeline level re-sequencer.  
We have three types of re-sequencing in Service Bus.

Standard:  This sequencer is used when incoming message contain numeric identifier.  This numeric identifier is termed as Sequence Id. We may specify message Group also, that means incoming order can be Sales Order or purchase order, in this case we will have separate group for both Sales Order and purchase order. When source system send out of order messages then it store out-of-order message until complete order is received this is based on sequence Id.
FIFO: This sequencer works based on message arrival time. Whichever message received first, will be processed first. Here you need to specify only Group. So all the messages which are there in one group processed based on message receive time.
Best Effort: It is used when we receive large number of messages in a short period of time and cannot provide information to the re-sequencer about the identifier to use for sequencing. Typically, the identifier used for sequencing in such scenarios is of a dateTime type or numeric type.

Create Service Bus Customization File using WLST
by Ronald van Luttikhuizen

For one of our Oracle Fusion Middleware projects we had the requirement that the IT Ops activities should be scripted as much as possible. These activities included things like packaging, deploying, and automated testing of Service Bus projects, SOA Composites, and BPM processes. One of the more challenging tasks to script was to create and extract the runtime configuration of services deployed on Oracle Service Bus 11g using customization files. There seems to be no WLST feature readily available for this purpose. Based on some resources that all contained part of the solution, we were able to construct a WLST script for this purpose which you can find in this blog.

This blog briefly explains the use of customization files, how to create a customization file using the Service Bus Console, includes the WLST script to execute this task, and provides a brief conclusion.

Customization Files

Customization files are XML files that contain the configuration of Service Bus resources and projects. Examples of such configurations are Service URIs, JCA settings, Retry Settings, and so on. Customization files provide a convenient way to apply environment-specific configuration during deployment. You can both apply, as well as create and extract the runtime configuration of Service Bus resources and projects into customization files using the Service Bus Console.

Oracle SOA Suite 12c: The LDAPAdapter, a quick and easy tutorial by Maarten Smeets

IntroSOASuiteLDAPIn enterprises, LDAP servers are often used to store user credentials and groups and share them among applications. Oracle SOA Suite 12c introduces a new technology adapter; the LDAPAdapter which allows easy integration with LDAP servers. In this blog post I will provide a quick and easy howto on installation of an LDAP server and browser (ApacheDS and Apache Directory Studio). I will also describe the configuration required to use the LDAPAdapter and provide an example BPEL process which allows creation of new users in the ApacheDS LDAP server by means of webservice calls.
Setting up the LDAP server
Installing an LDAP server
For this example I’ll use ApacheDS as LDAP server and Apache Directory Studio as LDAP browser. First download and install Apache Directory Studio from Next create an LDAP server. Click the LDAP server tab in the bottom left corner and click New Server. Read the complete article here.

Closer look at the SOA 12c Feature: Oracle Managed File Transfer By Tshepo Madigage 

The rapid growth of cloud-based applications in the enterprise, combined with organizations' desire to integrate applications with mobile technologies, is dramatically increasing application integration complexity. To meet this challenge, Oracle introduced Oracle SOA Suite 12c, the latest version of the industry's most complete and unified application integration and SOA solution. With simplified cloud, mobile, on-premises, and Internet of Things (IoT) integration capabilities, all within a single platform, Oracle SOA Suite 12c helps organizations speed time to integration, improve productivity, and lower TCO.
To extend its B2B solution capabilities with Oracle SOA Suite 12c, Oracle unveiled Oracle Managed File Transfer, an integrated solution that enables organizations to virtually eliminate file transfer complexities. This allows customers to load data securely into Oracle Cloud applications as well as third-party cloud or partner applications.

Oracle Managed File Transfer (Oracle MFT) enables secure file exchange and management with internal departments and external partners. It protects against inadvertent access to unsecured files at every step in the end-to-end transfer of files. It is easy to use especially for non technical staff so you can leverage more resources to manage the transfer of files. The extensive reporting capabilities allow you to get quick status of a file transfer and resubmit it as required. You can protect data in your DMZ by using the SSH/FTP reverse proxy.

Make sure you get familiar with BPM Suite 12c, at Oracle Learning Library you can get great videos on demand free:
·         Upgrading Oracle BPM Suite to 12c Video Series – 8 videos

Two weeks ago I blogged about the new features and improvements to process documentation in Oracle BPM 12.1.3. A sample is now available on for download. This sample includes:
·         A lab document explaining how to use the import feature in Oracle BPM Composer and Studio to convert Visio, XPDL, BPMN 2.0, Oracle Workflow, and Tutor documents into BPM processes. A sample Visio file is included in the download so you can see how the feature works.
·         The same lab document leads you through adding process documentation via the business properties.
·         You are also guided through using the narrative view to edit your sample process.
·         Then the lab prompts you to create process reports to bring all of your process documentation together in one HTML or PDF document.
The sample also includes a lab solution so you can import the project with all of the process documentation already added.

This is a FREE hands-on workshop covers all the capabilities you need to build robust, reliable and agile BPM solutions. It covers the key
themes/ components of BPM12c, business architecture, verbal rules, requirements capture, new UI for easy to design dashboards and many
developer features. The workshop labs include an end to end example, leveraging components such as BPMN, Adapters, OBR and Content
Server. They also cover the use of Enterprise Manager for FMW (EM) for monitoring and fault analysis.
After attending this Oracle BPM Suite 12c workshop, you should be in a position to build industry-focused solutions, customer-facing demos,
proof-of-concepts (POCs), pilot implementations and reference architectures on this platform. You will also be in a position to extend your

New Features and Changes in BPM 12c by David Winters

At the Oracle BPM 12c summer camp in Lisbon, I had a chance to deep-dive into world of Oracle BPM suite 12c which went GA at the end of June. In this blog, I will discuss which I believe are the most notable changes in the BPM 12c product, some of which also impact SOA suite 12c since the BPM suite shares some components with the SOA suite including the human workflow and business rules engine among others as we can see from the diagram below. Furthermore, both the BPEL and BPMN service engines share fundamentally the same codebase. Read the complete article here.

New Types of Modeling in Oracle BPM 12c Process Composer by Jessica Ray

Enterprise Maps, Value Chain Modeling and Strategy Models - These are all new modeling types that are introduced as part of the Oracle Process Composer in the 12.1.3 version of the Oracle BPM Suite. 
Here is a quick, two minute tour of these new modeling types in Oracle Process Composer. 
Types of Modeling
These new types of modeling are a step in the right direction for business to model the high level models and map them to the lower level, executable business models.
Enterprise Maps
Enterprise Maps are the highest level of modeling, level 0. The show lanes and process areas. Some common examples of process areas are Sales, Marketing, HR and R&D. Of course, the process areas in an Enterprise Map will very much depend on the type of organization that is being modeled and the structure of that organization. 
“The Enterprise Map described the primary business functions of an enterprise and the pieces of the organization that perform those functions” - Oracle Process Composer Watch the video here.

BPM 12c Gateways (Part 1 of 5): Exclusive Gateway by Antonis Antoniou

Oracle BPM provides us with various components to control the flow of a process such as gateways, timer events, errors, message events, send and receive tasks, loop markers and multi-instance markers.

In this five part series part I will be elaborating the gateway control flow components and how we can use them to define the flow of our process.

Gateways are very similar to a flowchart decision element. Using a gateway you can define the control points within your process by splitting and merging paths. At runtime a gateway will determine based on the control points defined at design time the path that a token will take through a process.

There are five gateway types; Exclusive Gateway (XOR), Inclusive Gateway (OR),  Parallel Gateway, Event Based Gateway and Complex Gateway.

Exclusive and Inclusive gateways consist of two outbound sequence flows; a default sequence flow representing the normal path between two objects and a conditional sequence flow to control the process flow based on the evaluation of an expression.

BPM Process Patterns using BPMN by Dan Atwood 

Business analysts and developers new to BPM sometimes struggle with the art of discovering, modeling, understanding and explaining business processes. BPM Process patterns provide a time proven and simple technique to shorten the learning curve and improve productivity and quality of the processes designed.  The patterns described here were created using Oracle BPM's BPMN process modeling tool.
Process patterns are example fragments of processes that show how to connect activities together to solve various and common workflow problems.  Like words that are combined to form sentences, these patterns are combined to form complete processes and illustrate some of the best thoughts on modeling business processes today.   Professor Wil van der Aalst's Workflow Patterns article written in 2002 noted that processes have common and reusable patterns.  These process patterns are broken down into these six categories that gradually grow in complexity:
1.     Procedural Patterns
2.     Advanced Branching and Synchronization Patterns
3.     Structural Patterns
4.     Multiple Instance Patterns
5.     State Based Patterns
6.     Cancellation Patterns
Procedural Patterns
Sequence Pattern
This is the most common and obvious of all the patterns. When business analysts begin to model the way things work today ("As-Is" process) usually much of the process looks like activities strung together in a series. Instances (individual items of work flowing through the process) step through the activities one by one. Read the complete article here.

Integrating With Fusion Application Using Services (SoapUi - SSL) By Jani Rautiainen

Fusion Applications provides web services that allow external systems to integrate with Fusion Applications. There are two types of services: ADF services and composite services. ADF services are created for a logical business object and provide functionality to access and manipulate these objects. The composite services are mostly process oriented and provide an orchestration of multiple steps.

Information about the web services provided by Fusion Applications is hosted in
Oracle Enterprise Repository (OER). The information provided by OER can be used to understand the functionality provided by the service and how the service can be called.

This series of articles describes how one can invoke SOAP web services provided by Fusion Applications using various technologies. In
previous article we covered how to invoke a Fusion Application web service secured with simple username token using SoapUI. In this article we will cover a call to service secured with SSL policy.
The reader is expected to have SoapUI installed.
Fusion Applications Web Service Policy
This example covers a call to a web service that support user name tokens and SSL. The example was tested with a service using "oracle/wss_username_token_over_ssl_service_policy" commonly available for Oracle SaaS environments.
Implementing Web Service Call
Generally the steps to call a SSL and non-SSL services are the same. The SSL services are however commonly configured to validate a timestamp though. So calls to SSL services commonly require the "wsu:Timestamp" element and the value used must be within tolerance. If the timestamp is not provided or the value is not within the tolerance you would see error such as:
 InvalidSecurityToken : The security token is not
