    Oracle Integration Cloud Service (ICS) is another powerful yet simple Cloud platform offering by Oracle that simplifies the development of cloud and hybrid integrations (applications in the cloud and on premises).
    The entire integration development and operational lifecycle is managed through a web based service console offering a point and click integration and monitoring experience without having to write a single line of code.
    Furthermore Oracle ICS supports various industry standards like SOAP and REST and comes with a set of cloud adapters providing pre-integration capabilities with several SaaS applications (such as Oracle ERP Cloud, Oracle HCM Cloud, Oracle Sales Cloud, Oracle RightNow, Eloqua, NetSuite and Salesforce) shortening the time-to-market in integration projects.
    The concepts in Oracle ICS are really simple; you create connections (using the pre-defined offered adapters) and leverage those connections to create integrations which you can then dashboard monitor to track the current state of your running integrations and fix any errors that might occur.

    clip_image002Since a few years cloud computing has become more and more popular. The main types of cloud computing are Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS). In the past, several subareas have been established in the market and pushed by research companies. One subarea is Integration PaaS (IPaaS)  and a variety of vendors have provided solutions. One advantage of IPaaS solutions is the simplified integration. Furthermore, IPaaS provides the capability to integrate cloud- and on-premise applications. Oracle announced Integration Cloud Service (ICS) as an IPaaS solution in June.
    This article describes a first impression and the key components of ICS.

    First experience with ICS

    After the login to ICS, you will get greated with an organized and clean overview. The page provides an overview on the three main functional areas. Figure 1 shows the areas and the simple and tablet-friendly user interface. The functional areas are divided into Connections, Integrations and Dashboard.

    Figure 1: ICS Start Page (click on the picture to see an enlarged version of the picture)

    The Connections-area provides the capabilities to define configurations to specific application endpoints. These configurations are based on technology adapters such as SOAP, application adapters for on premise application e.g. eBusiness Suite and cloud adapters for cloud applications e.g. Oracle Sales Cloud. The connection could be used for several integrations and one of the main benefits is the reusability of the configuration. In addition, the integration developer does not need to know details about the service or application when using the preconfigured adapter.
    The most important functional area is Integrations. It provides the functions to develop the integration flows and lookups. The overview page shows all integrations with the possibility to filter by status. The user interface to develop the integration is kept as simple as possible.
    Figure 2 shows the integration development and the clean interface you will already know from the overview. Target, source and transformation are the key elements of an integration scenario. The source and target can be defined with preconfigured connections or technology adapters such as Rest or SOAP. The transformation for request and response messages is placed in the middle of the screen. Read the complete article here.

    I'm pleased to announce that Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 inbound, outbound, and loopback connections are now certified with TLS 1.2, 1.1, and 1.0. If you have not already migrated from SSL to TLS, you should begin planning the migration for your environment. 

    For more information on patching and configuration requirements when migrating to TLS 1.2 from TLS 1.0 or SSL or enabling TLS for the first time, refer to the following My Oracle Support Knowledge Document:

    Migrating to TLS 1.2 per the steps and configuration outlined in MOS Note 376700.1 will do the following:

    • Address recent security vulnerabilities (e.g. POODLE, FREAK, LOGIAM, RC4NOMORE)
    • Migrate to new OpenSSL libraries which will change the method by which you generate and import your certificate

    Configuration Options

    • Configure TLS 1.2 with Backward Compatibility

      The default Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 configuration allows for the handshake between the client and server to negotiate and use the highest version of TLS (either 1.2, 1.1, or 1.0) supported by both parties.

      For example, if the outbound connection used by iProcurement is by default configured for TLS 1.2, 1.1 and 1.0 and if a call is made from Oracle E-Business Suite iProcurement to an external site that supports TLS 1.2 and a common cipher suite is found, then TLS 1.2 will be used. If a call is made from Oracle E-Business Suite iProcurement to an external site that supports TLS 1.1 and a common cipher suite is found, then the handshake negotiation will resolve to use TLS 1.1.

    • Configure TLS 1.2 Only (Optional Configuration)

    You may optionally configure Oracle E-Business Suite to use TLS 1.2 only for all inbound, outbound and loopback connections.

    Warning: If you restrict Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 to use only TLS 1.2, this configuration could result in the inability to connect with other sites or browsers that do not support TLS 1.2.
    • Disable the HTTP Port (Optional Configuration)

    You may optionally configure the Oracle HTTP Sever (OHS) delivered with the Oracle E-Business Suite application technology stack to disable the HTTP port and use the HTTPS port only.

    Where can I learn more?
    There are several guides and documents that cover Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 secure configuration and encryption. You can learn more by reading the following:

    SSL or TLS 1.0 Reference Note

    If you are using SSL or TLS 1.0 and need to review your current configuration or renew your certificate, you may refer to the following:

    Time-out. Time for me.

    A Guest Post By Dr. Patricia Dues, president of the OAUG

    With such a jam-packed agenda full of quality sessions at Oracle OpenWorld, it’s hard to imagine having any down time to escape the confines of the convention center and the overload of information assailing your brain. But remember, you are in beautiful San Francisco, and it’s important to take a moment to rejuvenate. Here are three, quick time-outs to consider for Oracle OpenWorld this year.

    Find a Spot at Yerba Buena Gardens. Recognized as one of the nation’s top 30 urban parks, Yerba Buena Gardens is known to be the cultural heart of San Francisco and is an inviting expanse of manicured lawns and shade against the intriguing area skyline. With its proximity to Moscone Center, Yuerba Buena Gardens is a perfect spot to enjoy your box lunch while taking in the OpenWorld entertainment, the people watching and a bit of fresh air.  If this area was not on your agenda during Oracle OpenWorld, it should be.

    Shop at Westfield San Francisco Centre near Moscone. For all you shoppers out there, this 9-story mall will make your head spin. It features more than 170 shops, a multiplex, a dome-covered atrium and a great food court. It is not far from the convention center, so you can easily make the quick trip if you need to purchase more comfortable shoes or indulge yourself with a new designer outfit.

    Expand your Epicurean Horizons. You may not be a fan of Brussels sprouts. But, year after year, I hear the OAUG staff and other conference attendees talking about the great Brussels sprouts they’ve eaten in San Francisco. Seriously? They tell us that we’ve just never had Brussels sprouts that were cooked well. Ok, maybe it’s time to take the gastronomic challenge and give these controversial veggies another try. To make it convenient, The Split Bread restaurant is right across the street from Moscone West in the Metreon. Watch for their fall menu, which, I’m told, will feature an excellent Brussels sprouts dish. Plan to take a time-out and take the plunge. Let us know what you think!

    Now, back to the conference.

    Dr. Patricia Dues is president of the Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG), an independent, global, member-led organization that maximizes customers’ investment in Oracle and partner solutions.

    Web-based content in Oracle E-Business Suite 12 runs on the Oracle Application Framework (OAF or "OA Framework") user interface libraries and infrastructure.   Since the release of Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 in 2013, we have released several updates to Oracle Application Framework to fix performance, security, and stability issues. 

    These updates are provided in cumulative Release Update Packs, and cumulative Bundle Patches that can be applied on top of the Release Update Pack. "Cumulative" means that the latest RUP or Bundle Patch contains everything released earlier.

    The latest OAF update for EBS 12.2.4 is now available:

    Where is the documentation for this update?

    Instructions for installing this OAF Release Update Pack are here:

    Who should apply this patch?

    All EBS 12.2 users should apply this patch.  Future OAF patches for EBS 12.2 will require this patch as a prerequisite. 

    What's new in this update?

    Fixes are included for following critical issues:

    • MAC validations are failing for JTT  URL cookie "jfn" in interoperability flows.
    • Message box bean is not accessibility complaint.
    • Proxy user session throws 'insufficient privileges' error when home page mode is flat.
    • Empty MDS customization documents are present in the db tables after upgrading to Release 12.2.3 of EBS and consequently, the users cannot access the pages.
    • In a KFF which has validation disabled, invalid values entered by end user are not retained after navigating back from another page.

    This Bundle Patch requires the R12.ATG_PF.C.Delta.4 Release Update Pack as a mandatory prerequisite.

    The Oracle Quick Start installers for Developers are great for probably many developers, but they are limited. Shutting down (or crashing of) JDeveloper will shutdown the domain and there are separate Quick Start installers for SOA and BPM suite. When installing a SOA or BPM environment for development or research purposes i prefer an environment which is more close to a production configuration. Setting up an new environment can take some time when you have to go through the wizards and remembering the options chosen the previous time you installed. Therefore i scripted the installation proces, the scripts are divided per product so that i a later stage easily can replace specific stages in the installation proces and am not bound to a specific virtualization product or installation tool.

    In this article i will show you how to configure a VirtualBox machine, install Oracle Linux 6U7, Oracle BPM (including SOA), OSB & BPM. And configure a Weblogic 12cR1 domain with separate managed servers forSOA/BPM, OSB and BAM in less than 33 minutes. Read the complete article here.

    clip_image001Measuring performance of services can be done in various ways. In this blog article I will describe a method of measuring Oracle SOA service response times with Splunk a popular monitoring tool. In order to monitor service response times with Splunk, Splunk needs to obtain its data from somewhere. In this example I’ll use the HTTP access log which I expand with a time-taken field. Disclaimer; my experience with Splunk is something like 2 hours. This might also be an indication of what can quickly be achieved with Splunk with little knowledge.

    Making service response times available


    At first I thought about using the OWSM policy oracle/log_policy. This policy can be applied to an endpoint. The policy logs request and response messages. There is however not (without alteration of the policy) a way to correlate the request with the response message. See the image below. An ECID is logged, but the ECID can differ for a request and response. The ECID can also be the same for different requests in a call chain. Several HTTP or SOAP headers could potentially be used for this, but they have to be present in the request and in the response. This can require some work, especially if you want to add them in the request, since all consumers need to use these headers.

    Correlation of request and response messages is not possible OOTB with the log_policy


    The access.log file stores by default some data on HTTP requests such as timestamp, HTTP status code, url and the size of the request. This can easily be expanded with the time which is required to process a request. You can configure this from the WebLogic Console. Go to your server, Logging, HTTP and click the Advanced button. Here you can add time-taken as a field to log in the Extended Logging Format Fields. Read the complete article here.
