Podcast on SOA Governance

A while ago I was at Oracle HQ talking to Dave Berry, product team manager of Oracle Fusion Middleware, about governance. We started out a discussion on our blogs and we felt it would be a nice idea to convert our discussion into an article.

Somehow Bob Rhubart, manager of the Architect Community within Oracle, got wind of our discussion and invited us to give our take on Governance in general. The result is two podcasts on Governance:

Start on the road to SaaS with SPUD

Lots of companies are leaping onto SaaS in the manner of a drowning man grabbing onto a tiger shark in the vain hope that all will be fine. The problem is that they haven't really thought about what they want and what it takes to properly adopt SaaS so what they do is take the same old approach to package adoptionWork out what you want to doBuy a package/SaaS solution to do some of itCustomise

Taming schema inheritance in BPEL

An interesting use case on handling XSD schema definitions in BPEL involves the usage of schema inheritance in BPEL. Understanding how to handle schema inheritance in BPEL pays off handsomely when we deal with SaaS applications integration scenarios in BPEL. The web services framework of SaaS applications predominantly base their schema definitions on XSD inheritance.

Architect Obstacles

I've been invited to participate in a podcast next week, to discuss challenges today's IT Architects face. I would like to open up to a broader audience, please send me any of your most pressing obstacles, and I will include it in our discussions.

I've listed a few that I have experienced most recently:

TrImport - Trim your insert statements

Did you ever want to copy data from database to another and want to exclude certain columns? With the basic export utility in SQL Developer one can specify a selection criteria (effectively a where clause) to export certain rows. It will produce an SQL script with insert statements. However, virtual, or calculated, columns are also included, even though their data can be derived. This is a problem only when attempting to run the script against the target database, it will not allow you to perform an insert on a virtual column.

SOA 11g: Preferences

As we used preferences in BPEL very often, we expeted to use this in 11g as well. But within the BPEL editor and in the SCA editor there is no button to apply preferences. the function ora:getPreference() is available, but were do we apply this preferences.

The solution is there and writtin in:

Using Oracle SOA Suite Command-Line Upgrade Tool to merge Multiple BPEL Projects Into a Single Composite

Most important benefit of using command line tool is the ability to merge multiple projects (BPEL, ESB) in to single composite.
Required ANT build files are located under
<JDEV_HOME>\bin
OR
<FMW_SOA_HOME>\bin
Since my machine has got both, i have used FMW_SOA_HOME as ORACLE_HOME

Set SOA Environment using soaversion.sh (.cmd) located under ORACLE_HOME/bin directory
Run the Ant project from ORACLE_HOME/bin [...]
