What happens to Discoverer support in June 2017?
The Oracle Lifetime Support Policy: Oracle Fusion Middleware Products document states:
No new patches for Discoverer 11gR1 or its E-Business Suite (EBS) Discoverer-based content will be created after June 30, 2017. EBS customers will continue to have access to existing released patches and other published resources.
Which EBS releases are affected?
E-Business Suite 12.1 and 12.2 included workbooks, business areas, and folders built for Discoverer 11gR1. Both EBS 12.1 and 12.2 are affected by this.
What should EBS users use for analytics now?
This document was published in March 2014:
That Note recommends that Discoverer users migrate to Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE), Oracle Business Intelligence for Applications (OBIA), or Oracle Endeca Information Discovery.
Are there automated tools for migrating from Discoverer to other Oracle analytics tools?
No, there are no automated tools for migrating Discoverer content to OBIEE, OBIA, or Oracle Endeca Information Discovery.
Can EBS customers request new patches after June 2017?
No, Oracle will not produce new patches or documentation for Discoverer, EBS content for Discoverer, or Discoverer certifications with EBS 12.1 or 12.2 after June 30, 2017.
Can EBS customers access existing Discoverer-related resources after June 2017?
Yes, EBS customers will still be able to download existing Discoverer patches. For example, Discoverer 220.127.116.11 was certified in June 2013 and is certified for EBS 12.1 and 12.2. Customers will continue to be able to download Discoverer 18.104.22.168 and Discoverer-related documentation for EBS environments (Note 1380591.1 for EBS 12.2, Note 1074326.1 for EBS 12.1).
Can EBS customers continue to use Discoverer after June 2017?
Yes, but Oracle's ability to assist with questions will be increasingly-limited as environments with Discoverer are retired. Customers should minimize changes to their Discoverer-related infrastructure with the goal of keeping Discoverer environments stable: e.g. limiting changes that might affect load, hardware infrastructure, or business processes.
Will Discoverer work with new desktop client updates after June 2017?
This is unknown. No new certifications for Discoverer will be performed after June 2017. Desktop client updates such as new JRE releases, new Windows updates, and new browsers may have unpredictable effects on Discoverer. Oracle will not issue new compatibility patches for these types of issues after June 2017.
We have a lot of developers who are using JDeveloper to develop applications with Oracle SOA Suite, and in this blog I wanted to show them how the combination of JDeveloper along with Oracle Developer Cloud Service can help automate their whole development and delivery lifecycle.
One unique aspect of Developer Cloud Service is that it has an instance of JDeveloper available in the build environment. This allows customers who are building Oracle SOA artifacts to leverage the OJDeploy mechanism to package their applications as part of a continuous integration cycle just like they do during development time.
With the improved DevCS integration that we added in JDeveloper 12.2.1, developers can go beyond integration with the Git server offered by DevCS and can now interact with the DevCS task tracking system directly as well as associate code changes to specific tasks they are working on.
In this 10 minutes video I show:
The March edition of the PaaS & Middleware Partner Update contains three key topics:

This is the third of several tutorials in the Oracle Real Time Integration Business Insight series, where you take the role of a business user to explore preconfigured dashboards for an Insight model and create custom dashboards to gain business insight into the data captured by the AstraTeq Help Desk application.
We spoke about Rogers Group Inc, a road and highway construction company based out of Nashville, Tennessee, back in November, but wanted to take this opportunity to update you on the company's progress and to share two new pieces of content... an article from Forbes, and a very cool video featuring Dawna Roberts, Rogers Group's IT Infrastructure Manager.
As you may recall, Rogers was looking for a way to increase both productivity and efficiency at its job sites. All of the company's on-site data, was recorded, entered, and tracked, usingpaper forms and spreadsheets, and an office clerk processed everything manually on the back-end into Oracle E-Business Suite applications. This led to construction site reporting delays and productivity loss.
Using a solution developed by AuraPlayer, an Oracle Partner that helps companies to integrate, extend, modernize and mobilize their E-Business Suite and Forms applications, as well as Oracle Mobile Cloud Service, Rogers was able to "wrap" its existing EBS infrastructure and expose it as a web service without changing any code. The company then collaborated with Sofbang, an Oracle Platinum Partner, to create a mobile app that would allow on-site managers to visualize and manipulate the now-exposed E-Business Suite data. For the full story of how the solution helped construction foremen, construction managers, estimators, and even IT managers, read the Forbes article!
With this solution set to go live in April at job sites around the US, Rogers anticipates that data collection and processing time will be reduced from one week down to one day, and that on-site managers will be able to make instantaneous decisions by comparing real-tme production costs to their planned budgets for each project. We'd call that a win for both speed and productivity!
So, are you interested in SOA & Service Orientation technologies?, that’s great because we also are, and work with those every single day since a long time ago. As integration professionals, we’ve seen the SOA stack grow, change, incorporating new products and technology with each passing year.
We’re Arturo Viveros and Rolando Carrasco, the SOA
Myth Busters from Mexico, and as we go with this series we will put to
the test a number of questions, myths and urban legends regarding SOA,
Digital Transformation and much more, in seek of finding out which myths
are true and which are not.
Microservices Architecture is one of the disruptive technologies which have definitely taken center stage in these early days of the Digital Transformation era. Its fundamentals and value proposition are very appealing and in context with many of the architectural and functional needs of modern platforms and initiatives, so let’s begin by taking a quick overview:
ed deployment machinery. There is a bare minimum of centralized management of these services, which may be written in different programming languages and use different data storage technologies”“In short, the microservice architectural style is an approach to developing a single application as a suite of small services, each running in its own process and communicating with lightweight mechanisms, often an HTTP resource API. These services are built around business capabilities and independently deployable by fully automat
The above definition by Martin Fowler is fairly simple
and at first sight doesn’t really introduce any extraordinary or
revolutionary concepts. However, the best way to understand this
architectural style as well as its differentiators and potential
benefits, is contrasting it to what we may call traditional “monolithic”
With the term “monolith” being one of the most dreaded in IT lore, the design principles for which Microservices stand for become even more impactful: Read the complete article here.
Happy Monday to all Linux fans. Today we would like to highlight an updated whitepaper available here. This whitepaper describes the comprehensive Oracle Linux management capabilities available in Oracle Enterprise Manager and has been updated for the latest version of Oracle Enterprise Manager 13c.
Oracle Enterprise Manager 13c enables customers to have complete visibility into
The whitepaper provides details on the following management features:
The whitepaper shows (using example screenshots) how Oracle Enterprise Manager 13c enables administrators to accomplish multiple Oracle Linux system management tasks securely from a single console.
Therefore, to get started with secure, enterprise class single pane of glass management for Oracle Linux read this link.
One of the major new features in Oracle Database 12c Release 2 is Analytic Views.
An analytic view is a type of view that can be used to easily extend the content of a star schema with aggregated data, measure calculations and descriptive metadata, and to simplify the SQL needed to access data.

When setting up a continuous integration solution for Oracle SOA Suite code, it is best to work with mavenized projects, and thus rely on Oracle-provided maven plugins to do the tough job of compiling and deploying artifacts.
This way of working has been introduced by
Oracle in the 12c range of products. There are no Maven plugins
available for 11g Oracle products.
This post describes how to set up the plugin in a Binary Repository for Maven to be able to fetch it when the time has come to compile a SOA Composite.
The Oracle SOA Maven Plugin needs to be published to a Maven repository, this can be a local repository or a remote repository. Here, we’ll discuss a remote repository, as publishing to your local repository is similar and even easier!
Make sure your binary repository is set up, and you have a user and password with sufficient rights to add binaries to the repository.
Edit your Maven Settings file, it is located at ~/.m2/settings.xml.
Make sure that you set up a profile, and that the profile/id matches activeProfiles/activeProfile. Also make sure that repository/id matches server/id for the credentials to be used when communicating to the server.
Combined, the settings.xml file would look something like this: Read the complete article here.
A job role separation configuration of Oracle Database and Oracle Automatic Storage Management (ASM) is a configuration with groups and users to provide separate groups for operating system authentication.
This is now a certified option for E-Business Suite 12.2 environments. The EBS Rapid Install now supports the use of job role separation to manage operating system permissions for ASM, Oracle Grid Infrastructure, and Oracle software installations.
The following guides have been updated to reflect this newly-certified configuration option:
MySQL is the #1 open source database. Because of MySQL’s high

It's going to be a little long but if you stay until the last line, you are going to know what i did to create dynamic xml requests and responses usign the unit test framework of the Soa Suite with groovy. (yes, groovy!)
I'm going to give some background of the problem and later my own personal solution. Lets begin :D
[Update 30/06/2016] Wrote a second blog about subject with more functionality for the tests; JUnit test execution, pre load of dat and post processing of information. http://carlgira.blogspot.com.es/2016/06/oracle-soa-suite-unit-test-with-groovy.html
was trying to create Unit Test for some Bpel with several Web Service
calls, human task, JCAs to database, and i get really frustated trying
to create dynamic requests or responses using the tool within the
I wanted to re-create some fields, update dates etc.
The only thing i found was something that the TestSuites supports but the graphic wizards dont show. You can use small Xpath functions to replace values of the payloads in your TestSuite.
The next image shows the initiation message of a TestCase. You can see that after the payload, there is an element called "update". This element only receives two attributes, the "updateLocation" that refers a XpathLocation of a field to update, and the "updateXpathFunction" with the xpath function with the new value. Read the complete article here.
Now is the moment to get started on OpenStack. You can take the Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux: Getting Started seminar at your own pace through the Training-on-Demand format.

This course introduces you to the key OpenStack concepts and services and guides you through installation and deployment as well as sharing troubleshooting tips.
This frequently asked question comes in several variants, including:
We will answer each question in turn.
Can I use Oracle GoldenGate with EBS on-premises to set up an operational reporting environment in Oracle Cloud?
Yes. We have certified the use of Oracle GoldenGate to create and run an EBS reporting environment for on-premises. A reporting environment is a secondary (duplicate) instance, which contains selected tables replicated from the primary EBS database. This enables read-intensive, custom reports to be run without using resources on the primary Oracle E-Business Suite database. While we have not formally certified use of GoldenGate to create and run an EBS reporting environment in Oracle Cloud, this is technically feasible and would work the same way as on-premises.
If you wish to explore this option, refer to our standard documentation for guidance and recommendations:
Important points to be aware of:
Can I use Oracle GoldenGate Cloud Service with EBS?
No. The use of Oracle GoldenGate Cloud Service with Oracle E-Business Suite is not currently certified.
Can I use Oracle GoldenGate to replicate my EBS database to Oracle Cloud?No. Oracle GoldenGate cannot be used to replicate an EBS database, because it does not support replication of all the datatypes used by EBS.
Can I use Oracle GoldenGate to perform a live migration of my EBS database from on-premises to Oracle Cloud?
No. Oracle GoldenGate cannot be used to perform live database migrations from on-premises to Oracle Cloud, again due to restrictions with EBS datatypes.
