Last night I had an inspiring dinner with one of my old colleagues, Ronald Doelen. We both see more and more companies changing their project methodology from waterfall to agile. We're both very enthusiastic about that, even though there are some hurdles to take, like architecture for example.
With all the Fusion Middleware releases of late April 2010 its nice to take a look at the security part of FMW & OSB 11g. You may already know FMW 11g Patch Set 2 is a patch on PS1 which was a full release but OSB 11g is a new release. Lets see if Oracle changed WSM in PS2 and what they did with the Weblogic 9.2 WS-Security policies in OSB 11g.
With User Messaging Service you can let Soa Suite 11g do all your Messaging. And UMS can do a lot: like Email with Attachments, Instant Messaging (XMPP, like Google Talk), SMS Text messages (SMPP), Fax or Voice Messages and deliver messages to the Soa & Webcenter Task List. Besides this, UMS keeps track of delivery status information provided by messaging gateways and makes this information available to applications so that they can respond to a failed delivery.
It appears that my last post caught a lot of people’s attention, with responses online and offline from people in the community as well as inside Microsoft. Some read it as a criticism of Microsoft. Others found it rang true with their experiences, particularly in their interactions with technological decision makers.

EJB injection in a managed bean of a JSF application deployed on a Weblogic Server can be tricky, Lucas already made a good blogpost about this subject and provided a workaround. In this blogpost I will show how you can inject a local and remote EJB Session Bean which are deployed with the Web Archive (WAR) in one Enterprise Archive ( EAR) and I injected a remote EJB deployed with a different EAR.
