    While I always enjoy getting in front of customers to present on some new and really cool functionality in Enterprise Manager Cloud Control, it's even better to be in the audience listening to actual customers doing just that!  There are a couple of those presentations coming up on Thursday this week at OOW.  Unfortunately I can't be there to listen in, but if you're interested in learning how to provide scalable and flexible patching solutions, make sure you get along to these two presentations and learn directly from these customers!

    Pivot from Manual to Scalable with Oracle Database Lifecycle Management Pack [CON2494]

    This presentation is on at 10:45 am on Thursday in Moscone South - 305.  Sarah Brydon and Ashwin Vaidya, both from Paypal, are the presenters. Are your skilled DBAs spending time installing software and applying patches instead of growing your business? Come to this session to learn how PayPal moved from manual execution of homegrown scripts for Oracle Real Application Clusters installs and patching to leveraging the power of Oracle Database Lifecycle Management Pack. Oracle Real Application Clusters provisioning moved from days to an hour per node, with improved build consistency and quality. Security and reliability patching scaled to deliver patches across the enterprise faster and more consistently than ever before. The session includes best practices for implementing provisioning and discusses PayPal’s experience with patching plans and the new fleet maintenance feature in Oracle Enterprise Manager and 13c.

    Database Patch at 1,000 Scale: Nationwide’s Oracle Enterprise Manager Fleet Maintenance Odyssey [CON2260]

    This session is on at 12 noon on Thursday, in the same room (Moscone South - 305).  The presenters this time are Gary Henderson and John Norman, both from Nationwide. Database currency is becoming an increasingly important part of every company’s security posture, but there are significant challenges with patching at scale—say, 1,200 databases. This session is on how Nationwide followed Oracle’s best practice (out-of-place patching) and used Oracle Enterprise Manager’s command-line interface with the new switch database capability to accomplish patching at scale and position the company for forthcoming fleet maintenance.

    So there you have it - two fantastic presentations, learning from real customer experiences.  It doesn't come much more realistic than that!

    Ok, so there you have it: I just don’t like the Mediator. I don’t really know why. But now that it’s in the open, let’s discuss it.

    I often see a pattern where a composite with a synchronous operation is implemented with a Mediator and BPEL component:

    I think that in most of these cases, it would be better to either leave out the Mediator component completely. Or replace it with a BPEL component that is run transient, i.e. in-memory.

    This article discusses some of the aspects around using a Mediator.

    We need to discuss…

    Some of the reasons to avoid a Mediator:

    • It adds another ‘technology’ to your developer’s skillset
    • It adds more tasks for system administration
    • It’s bad for performance

    Arguments in favor of using the Mediator:

    • One end-point for a composite with multiple operations
    • One external interface hides composite-internal changes

    Let’s go.

    Yet another developer skill

    As developer has to learn a lot when trying to master the SOA Suite completely. Learning all the aspects of BPEL is already a big task. And the Mediator is yet another skill. Arguably, not a big skill. Even more, developers are often inclined to say ‘ah … not hard at all’. But … are you as a developer familiar with all the features of Mediators? Like the resequencing rules? The routing rules priorities? When to specify sequential and parallel execution?

    I like simple things.

    More tasks for system administration

    Like for the developer, the Mediator also introduces new topics for the system administrator: purging and tuning.

    Both should not be a big issue, as enough information is available on how to handle them . But … does your system administrator know that there is a Mediator engine that needs to be tuned? Just challenge your system administrators to have a look at  Mediator tuning and ask them how they handled it.


    At the beginning of the article, it was argued that a Mediator with synchronous operation(s) can be replaced with a BPEL component. That BPEL component can then be made transient, i.e. it will run in memory. That would save the DB access by the Mediator engine. Read the complete article here.
