    The Oracle Database 12c Administrator Certified Master exam is now available for scheduling.

    - Check the schedule in your region.
    - If there is not an event scheduled, select the option to 'register a request'.

      There is minimum participant requirement to run an OCM exam event. Help Oracle University take the guess work out of scheduling desirable events, and get your OCM exam scheduled sooner in your location by registering your interest for when and where you'd like to take the exam.

      clip_image002XSLT View is one of two graphical views provided by the new 12c XSLT Editor. 

      (For a quick introduction to the graphical views in the 12c XSLT Editor see here.)

      XSLT View provides the ability to edit any XSLT file graphically. It is intended for XSLT developers who have a general understanding of XSLT and have written XSLT source code in a text editor.

      XSLT View is effectively a graphical source view. It has many advantages over editing XSLT source in a text editor.  Many of these are listed in the XSLT Editor Overview at the link above.  I think the best way to show these advantages is through specific examples.  In this post I will use an identity template to create a complex XSLT map.

      For our example we will work with a PurchaseOrder to PurchaseOrder map.

      Our goal for this map is to copy the source tree to the target tree, and while we are doing the copy, we want to copy the ShipTo CustomerName value into the BillTo Address, so that when we are done, the ShipTo and BillTo elements will both use the same CustomerName.

      We could do this by explicitly mapping each node, however, we can also use an identity template to copy the source.  Identity templates are often used to copy an input document to the output document, but make some modification while the copy is being done. If the source input at runtime is small compared to the number of elements defined in the source schema, it can be significantly faster to copy the tree using an identity template, compared to creating explicit XSLT statements for every node in the schema.

      clip_image002Introduction

      Among many new features added for 12.2.1 version of Oracle Fusion Middleware (announcement link) and demoed at this year's recently concluded Oracle Open World, I'm particularly excited about brand new diagnostics feature of Oracle SOA Suite called IWS Reports - being the lead designer and implementer of this project.

      IWS stands for Integration Workload Statistics and is intended to provide Oracle DB AWR like diagnostics for SOA applications. At high level, IWS can help user with two common challenges faced in SOA:

      1 - Scaling Issue

      2 - Performance Bottlenecks

      Diagnosing performance and scalability issues in SOA can be hard. Performance of a system depends on number of factors. SOA Systems pose particular challenge since large installations typically involves interactions between partners and services - internal and external, stateful and stateless components, synchronous and asynchronous communications, deployment over multi-domain clusters etc.

      Main causes for performance/scalability issues:

      1. Insufficient resources - CPU/Memory/network bandwidth
      2. Improper configurations - thread pools/data-sources etc.
      3. Slow partners
      4. Slow database (back-end)
      5. Lower stack (such as application server or operating system) performance issues

      The above causes can manifest in following:

      • Lower overall throughput
      • Large increase in response time
      • Backups in global queues
      • System stuck in extreme cases
      • Random errors/non-deterministic behavior (extreme low memory situations)

      IWS Reports provide variety of statistics such as system resource usage, message flows at key points in the system, backlogs at various components and activity execution times which can diagnose performance/scaling issues.

      IWS in nutshell

      • Helps in identifying bottlenecks and/or backups in the system
      • Useful for tuning for scaling or performance improvement
      • Snapshot based (configurable)/Automatic 
      • Central - collects stats from components and bindings/adapters in single output
      • Lends top-down/outside-in or direct analysis
      • Statistics maps to user application/project environment
      • Single point filtering based on Application/Composite/Component
      • Adds very little memory/processing overhead. Can be left always-on in production systems (off by default)
      • Snapshots persisted - for historical analysis/bench-marking/baseline and snapshot comparison

      Note that there are two patents pending around concepts of diagnostics and backlog calculations as used in IWS Reports.  Read the complete article here& part 2 here& part 3 here& part 4 here& part 5 here

      clip_image001SOA Suite 12.2.1 introduces Integration Workload Statistics. This is a powerful new feature which can be used to do performance measures. Oracle SOA Suite 12.2.1 also introduces untyped JSON support and JavaScript support in composites and Service Bus. What better way to take a good look at both features by doing some performance measures using IWS on composites using untyped JSON and JavaScript!

      I created 4 HelloWorld BPEL processes. Two of them are SOAP services and two of them are JSON services (not REST since they do not conform to REST architecture style). Two of these processes contain an assign activity using a JavaScript expression and one of them uses XPATH. I used SOAPUI to fire lots of messages on all services and measured responses. At the same time I had IWS activated to collect data on my processes. The results are quite interesting!

      IWS + SOAPUI vs untyped JSON and JavaScript support in SOA Suite 12.2.1

      Integration Workload Statistics

      Introduction

      Integration Workload Statistics provides valuable performance related information on your SOA Suite environment. This ranges from JVM memory usage to duration of BPEL activities. It even provides insight in the functioning of the SOA Suite by providing information on the transfer of messages over composite wires. You can not use it on the integrated WebLogic server provided with the quickstart of JDeveloper though.

      Using IWS is simple. First you have to activate it (it’s off by default) by right-clicking the soa-infra application, Monitoring, IWS Reports. Here you can click configure and set the level of detail. After you have applied this setting, you can run reports on the collected data. Report formats supported are CVS, XML and HTML. HTML provides a readable format which also contains some explanation on specific results. Read the complete article here.

      Working on an Adaptive Case Management (ACM) opportunity? Read the ACM Methodology published in the Best Practices for Knowledge Workers (Digital edition) book.

      BPM-based solutions have brought major advances to work organization and automation. However, given BPM’s strong basis on formal workflow definition, oftentimes BPM solutions are not well suited for work scenarios where a precise workflow cannot be strictly defined. Work in such scenarios is highly dependent on knowledge-based decisions about activities and outcomes, leading to multiple work paths and business rules that can become quite complex or even unfeasible to model and completely automate. In these cases, a different technology support approach is required. The focus is not to isolate and automate decisions and rules, but rather to deliver opportunistic information support to the knowledge worker to accomplish them. Adaptive Case Management (ACM) rises as a successful design pattern for this. Get the eBook here.

      Hello Oracle Cloud User,

      Major releases are the primary vehicle for delivering new product functionality to the SaaS fleet. In addition, the SaaS fleet receives a monthly update. As you would expect, monthly updates address product issues discovered mid-release. But they can also serve as a vehicle for delivering "new features". The purpose of this communication is to provide visibility into new and enhanced functionality that is delivered off-cycle via monthly updates.

      Specifically, this communication describes new SaaS functionality added in the last 30 days and it only includes the affected product areas.

      Your Action:  If you are focused on one of the product areas below, please check out the associated RCD and What's New documents (hosted on the cloud site) to learn about the recent changes. The Revision History section at the beginning of each document will serve as your pointer.

      Fusion Applications Release 11
