How to: OSB - FMW SCA 11g interoperability supporting transaction propagation

Currently, the BPEL transport in OSB is not supporting FMW 11g. However, I just found a way, although it still is proven in theory based on my knowledge, to enable transaction propagation between OSB and FMW 11g SCA composites. The basic idea is that you have to communicate between OSB and FMW 11g SCA composites using the SDO - EJB binding in 11g.

How to implement Payload Splitting using XSLT in BPEL

This blog is on the implementation details of how to process huge XML payload files in smaller chunks. As you know out of memory happens because XSL transformation and translation leaves huge memory footprint and it proportionally grows with XML payload size. In order to avoid that what we have done is to parse the XML in smaller chunks. To implement this we brought in indexes to XSL transformation. This is done using a begin Index and end Index which will be dynamically passed into the XSL.

More JDeveloper

This evening while playing with WinDirStat (using the Portable Apps version) I took the following screenshot:
It shows the growth of Oracle JDeveloper in size, number of files, and subdirectories. The most recent version is more than twice as big as 10.1.3.3. Also notice the difference between a 11.1.1.0 with and without the SOA Suite extension [...]

Non-functional Architectural Woes

As I sit here in the lounge at Bogota airport waiting for my delayed flight, I remembered something interesting that came up in my 2-week training/consulting in Cali. It’s not a question that came up, or anything like that. It was that I suddenly noticed a pattern in many of my consulting and training clients [...]

Using the event API to publish an event to the Event Delivery Network (EDN) – the Spring way

The Event Delivery Network (EDN) in Oracle SOA Suite 11g provides a declarative way to use a publish/subscribe model to generate and consume business events without worrying about the underlying message infrastructure. Events can be published / subscribed from a variety of programming environments such as Java, PL/SQL, SOA Composites, and ADF-BC applications In his [...]

Providing Single Sign-On to Amazon EC2 Applications from an On-Premises Windows Domain

Cloud platforms bring new challenges for handling identity. One important example of this is the need to give users in an on-premises Windows domain single sign-on to applications running in Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). If we want to make cloud platforms a natural extension of our on-premises world--and we absolutely do--solving this problem is important.

Scalability Podcast on Herding Code

The great folks over at Herding Code were nice enough to interview me back in November as I was over in Paris giving my 5-day SOA course. We talked about quite a lot of topics related to scalability.

Beta #2: Oracle SOA 11g Build tool, OSBS

A new beta version of the build tool is now available.

Introduction
A few years ago, when Oracle had only the BPEL component, deployment was rather complex. Therefore I create my own build tool, replacing the obant tool and ignoring the existing build.xml files, supplied within your JDeveloper project. Now with Oracle 11g the SCA composite is introduced and we are running on the Oracle Weblogic Server.
