    Oracle Fusion Middleware products get new Patch Set updates.  When a new Patch Set has been released, a 12 month Grace Period for the previous Patch Set begins.  Once that Grace Period ends, no new patches for the previous Patch Set will be released.

    For more details, see:

    Oracle BPEL Process Manager is part of Oracle SOA Suite 11.1.1.x.  Note 1290894.1 does not have a separate listing for Oracle SOA Suite; it refers to "Oracle Fusion Middleware" (FWM) instead. The references in that document to "FMW" implicitly include SOA Suite.

    SOA Suite 11.1.1.7 was released in April 2013.  SOA Suite 11.1.1.9 was released in May 2015, which means that the Grace Period for SOA Suite 11.1.1.7 will end after December 2018. 

    All E-Business Suite users running BPEL Process Manager in SOA Suite 11.1.1.7 should upgrade to BPEL Process Manager in SOA Suite 11.1.1.9 to remain under Error Correction Support. SOA Suite 11.1.1.x is covered by Premier Support to December 2018, and covered by Extended Support to December 2021.

  • 03/24/17--11:04: Implementing Chatbots
  • Wikipedia: A chatbot (also known as a talkbotchatterbotBotchatterboxArtificial Conversational Entity) is a computer program which conducts a conversation via auditory or textual methods. 

    Per my previous post on Artificial Intelligence,  this topic is nothing less than fascinating!

    Oracle has been making strong moves into the world of intelligent chatbots, its impact with consumers, within the enterprise ecosystem and specifically, what it takes to successfully implement them. At the recent QCon London 2017,  Lyudmil Pelov, Lead Architect with the Oracle A-Team, had a great talk titled: Implementing Your Own Chatbot Platform!  I know, that's the past, but you can check out the slides posted on SlideShare

    And by the way, Oracle President Thomas Kurian recently kicked off the first Oracle Code event (San Francisco), which covered Oracle's overall Cloud offerings and strategy for developers. His slides are also available on SlideShare here.

    I know, I know - you're thinking, slides are just slides! Where's the beef?  You want to get your hands dirty at a live event right?  Check out the 20 city tour Oracle Code events, specially tuned by developers, for developers. And if one of those isn't nearby, you should check the locally led field events at events.oracle.com and search for your location.  Now if you still can't find a live event nearby, or simply can't spare the day on a "technical research outing" you can tune in to the free Oracle Mobile Platform YouTube channel, where technical videos about mobile (and chatbots too) are covered in detail! You're welcome.  :)

    imageThere are several ways to do code quality checks in SOA Suite. In this blog post I will describe a minimal effort setup which uses Jenkins 2.9, SonarQube 5.6 and the SonarQube XML Plugin 1.4.1. SonarQube is a popular tool to check and visualize code quality. An XML Plugin is available for SonarQube which allows you to define custom XPath rules. At the end of this post I will shortly describe several other options which you can consider to help you improve code quality by doing automated checks.

    Using SonarQube and the XML Plugin to do code quality checks on SOA Suite components has several benefits compared to other options described at the end of this post.

    • It is very flexible and relatively technology independent. It allows you to scan any XML file such as BPEL, BPMN, OSB, Mediator, Spring, composite.xml files
    • It requires only configuration of SonarQube, the SonarQube XML Plugin and the CI solution (Jenkins in this example)
    • It has few dependencies. It does not require an Oracle Home or custom JAR files on your SonarQube server.
    • The XML Plugin has support (by SonarSource) so high probability it will still work in future versions of SonarQube.
    • Writing rules is simple; XPath expressions. it does not require you to write Java code to create checks.

    What we can’t do with this setup is check relations between files since the XPath expressions are executed on single documents (defined with an Ant-style file-mask). Usually though when compiling or deploying SOA Suite composites, it will fail if there are references to files which are not present.

    Jenkins / SonarQube setup

    Setting up the environment

    In this setup I’ve used Git, Jenkins, Maven, SonarQube. I’ve used an Ubuntu Server 16.04 install. The installation of the tools is pretty straightforward. Git and Maven are easiest: sudo apt-get install git maven. Jenkins is also pretty easy since there is a Debian package available. See here. For SonarQube I’ve installed a MySQL server (sudo apt-get install mysql-server). Next I’ve used the following manual. After the installation I’ve set the default admin password to admin (see here). I have also got Sonatype Nexus 3 installed on the server. This required a bit more effort. Nexus 2.x and Nexus 3.x use different API locations. Maven needed to be able to find Nexus (settings.xml file used for Nexus 2 cannot be used OOTB for Nexus 3). The init.d script had some different installation steps. See here.

    Of course most people will know how to use Git. I prefer a setup in which the server has a single Git user who owns the repository and grant other users access with SSH keys to that repository. You can see how this is done here.

    SonarQube

    I’ve used the XML Plugin in SonarQube to define XPath rules. This first needs to be installed. Administration, System, Update Center and install the plugin:

    You have to define a project in SonarQube. Administration, Projects, Management, Create Project. Read the complete article here.

    imageWe are proud to announce that RDS support is fully integrated and certified against MyST 3.8.2, which was released on 15/Jun/2016. To know more about MyST visit: http://myst.rubiconred.com

    1. Overview

    We started to provision Oracle Fusion Middleware platforms against AWS in anger about three years ago. From the beginning we took advantage of the ability to create the AWS infrastructure within minutes. We could also use MyST to provision complex Oracle Fusion Middleware EDG (Enterprise Deployment Guide) Compliant platforms in less than an hour.

    One challenge that we faced, was that we couldn’t use Oracle RDS as the database for our Oracle Fusion Middleware installations. This was primarily because the RDS master user didn’t have the database privileges required to run the Oracle Repository Creation Utility (RCU). As a result, we implemented our own automation for provisioning the Oracle Database running on EC2 instances.

    Whilst this works for running Dev and Test workloads in AWS, when it comes to implementing Production workloads, Oracle RDS provides a number of additional benefits. This includes simplified administration tasks, including backups, software patching, monitoring, and hardware scaling.

    In addition, the Multi-AZ deployment option simplifies the implementation of a highly available architecture, as it contains built-in support for automated fail-over from your primary database to a synchronously replicated secondary database in an alternative Availability Zone in case of a failure.

    This all started to change late last year, with a number of our customers looking at running Oracle SOA workloads in Production on AWS. Being an AWS Technology Partner, we provided this feedback to AWS, who in return invited us to collaborate with the RDS team.

    We spent the last 4 months of this year working with the AWS Oracle RDS Team (a big thank you to Michael and Jinyoung) to test the RCU capability within MyST. This went extremely well, and the RDS team worked closely with us to support the go-live of our first customer on Oracle SOA 12.2.1 on AWS using RDS – what we believe to be a world first!

    Our very first customer go-live on RDS was a few weeks ago in June-2016. More recently, Amazon has now announced that RCU is officially supported by Oracle RDS. This is great news for us and our customers. We can can now provision an Oracle Fusion Middleware EDG HA compliant environment within minutes and take advantage of RDS to simplify on-going operations.

    The following diagram depicts a typical highly available Oracle Fusion Middleware deployment in AWS. Note that the number of compute nodes, as well as the components may vary depending on the requirements.

    2. Oracle RDS Compatibility

    Before getting started with Oracle RDS, its important to check its compatibility with RCU and the corresponding Oracle Fusion Middleware components. The following AWS Oracle RDS edition/version options support RCU. Read the complete post here.

    imageErrors & failures

    So it is very easy to implement a happy flow. However handling errors, rolling back transactions and recovering from errors and failures can be quite challenging. It is not possible to find all the possibilities during development or design. Some errors or failures will only occur when very rare circumstances come into play together. Then all the parts of the application either will handle the error and will ensure that no data is lost and the application survives or not. In the last case people lose data, applications crash and managers get upset.

    A very good read on this topic is the book Release It!.

    A policy

    Most of the time I write services in either Oracle Service Bus or Oracle SOA Suite. I can mock expected error behaviour, however sometimes having errors when you don’t expect them can give you new insite into the stability and resilience of the application.

    To create (unexpected) errors a Managed Server can be stopped, data sources can be removed or entire virtual machine’s can be deleted. However these Managed Servers are quite heavy and when I ask somebody if I can break something during a test I am usually asked to get a cup of coffee ;)

    So I wanted a different method (unfortunately not implemeted at a customer) so I created an Oracle Web Service Manager (OWSM) policy. I was inspired by the Chaos Monkey application made by Netflix. The Chaos Monkey application creates havoc. The OWSM policy should also create problems, but in a very modest way. It generates an error on a random basis.

    The OWSM framework is not really meant for this kind of policies, but it is a start! The sources can be found on my GitHub repository.

    Building & installing the policy

    The policy is build using JDeveloper. I build it using JDeveloper 12.2.1.1, but I think it can be back ported to 12.1.3. There are two deployment profiles: Read the complete article here.

    For the adventurous, interesting times ahead since you're able to try out the NetBeans IDE 9 development build on top of JDK 9 EA, in my case, Build 162.

    When you configure that in your 'etc/netbeans.conf' file, the first thing you see on start up is this error, which appears to be related to the Darcula plugin that I'm using. Of course, since it's awesome despite this aspect for the moment, I'm using the Darcula plugin, which you can download and install from here, i.e., simply use the latest release of the plugin for 8.2, works fine in 9 development builds, except for this error.

    After seeing the above, simply click Cancel, and, so far, despite the above, things are pretty good!

    There are two big advantages to running the NetBeans IDE 9 Development Build on top of JDK 9.

    The first is that the fonts are automatically a lot better, at least, on Windows and, at the very least, on my system (click to enlarge the below, where you see NetBeans IDE 9 Development Build on JDK 9 on the left versus on JDK 8 Update 121 on the right):

    The second advantage is that you automatically have JShell integration (choose Tools | Open Java Platform Shell), as shown below. Excellent enhancement here is that, since the last time I used it, there's now a code fold for the text at the top of the JShell.

    Until further notice, this is the environment I'll be using.

    When you read this you arrived safely in Split and we would like to thank you and your management for investing the time to attend the PaaS Partner Community Forum XXIV. There will be more than 200 delegates from more than 40 countries, which will give you the opportunity to learn from other cloud minded partners and network with partners from different regions as we also have representation from Africa, Asia, North America, South America and the Middle-East. Many Oracle employees will attend and we would like to invite you to challenge them how we can support you to grow your business and maintain profitability on your investment with Oracle.

    This year’s conference marks a turning point in our journey. Cloud Computing is leading on all service levels. SaaS solutions became a standard model for enterprise customers. Infrastructure as a Service is used to deploy all kind of workload flexible in the cloud. Platform as a Service (PaaS) is crossing the chasm. At our community workspaces you can get a slide deck with more than 70 PaaS live production references. PaaS often is used to integrate SaaS solutions with other SaaS solutions or on-premises. Cloud platforms like Application Cloud Container (ACC) enable developers to build cloud native applications utilizing a microservices model. Often this applications are optimized for mobile devices. Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) play a key role in the digital transformation. New cloud services like machine learning and chatbots are arising.

    During this event you will see presentations from Product Management, Pre-Sales Consultants and Partners, that will share their real life experiences with you how to implement Oracle PaaS & Middleware solutions and to see the business drivers behind these projects.

    Focus of the 24th Fusion Middleware Partner Community Forum will be Platform as a Service (PaaS) Cloud Computing. During the last months many of the new PaaS service became mature. The Partner Community Forum is one of the best opportunities to get details and hands-on trainings about Integration Cloud Service (ICS), SOA Cloud Service (SOA CS), API Platform Cloud Service (API CS), Process Cloud Service (PCS), Mobile Cloud Service (MCS), Internet of Things Cloud Service (IoT CS), Java Cloud & Developer Cloud Service, Application Builder Cloud Service (ABCs) and Application Container Cloud Service (ACCs) and Content and Experience Cloud Service. Oracle PaaS Services give partners many new opportunities to build, customize and integrate applications in a public cloud environment. Our joint customers will benefit from this new cloud offering by fast time to market, higher availability and flexibility, lower project cost an risks. With hybrid cloud computing Oracle offers a unique value proposition for customer and partners. You can choose where to host your cloud solutions in the data center of your choice. Cloud marketplace gives you as a partner new opportunities to build, deploy and promote and market offerings on the Oracle PaaS Cloud. The Oracle Cloud Partner Program reflect the focus on cloud computing.

    The Enrich SaaS with PaaS initiative is designed for Oracle SaaS applications partners. The underlying PaaS platform enables customers to enrich and differentiate SaaS solutions. Connect SaaS solutions with other SaaS solutions and on-premises, analyze data and extend applications. As part of the conference multiple session and a two days hands-on training are offered to Enrich SaaS solutions with PaaS.

    Each conference attendee was granted access to free PaaS demo service before and during the conferences. As an Oracle gold partner or above you can request free PaaS demo services via demo.oracle.com or our partner communities any time – make use of it!

    On the first conference day you can learn from ACEs implementing successful PaaS solutions at our joint customers and PaaS best practices.

    We are excited to welcome again Ed Zou at the conference who will highlight in his keynote how to innovate on Oracle Cloud Platform – build, integrate, analyze and secure solutions. Digital is changing the economy, our joint customers face this challenge, PaaS is the platform you can build new Digital solutions either in the Cloud on on-premises. Thanks to our product management team you will get updates and roadmap details including demos for our PaaS & Middleware solutions.

    We would like to congratulate the annual winners of the Fusion Middleware Partner Community Awards. You will have the opportunity to learn direct from them why they have won the awards. On Tuesday evening during our social event you will have plenty of chance for deep discussion within the community and speakers.

    On the third day you can choose between four breakout tracks: Enterprise Integration track, BPM & User experience track, Application Development track and Mobile & Internet of Things track. We will keep our tradition to wrap up the conference with the legendary ACE demo – special thanks to Lucas Jellema and team!

    Thursday and Friday six different hands-on boot camps take place. During the conference we host run multiple information points. Please take the opportunity to talk to the product management teams and business development teams. From previous conferences we received the feedback that networking is key, it is always a challenge to keep the balance between more exiting live demos and networking breaks. As Split is hard to reach – you will be rewarded with a hotel & conference center overlooking the beach – many attendees will arrive on Monday. Therefore we introduce the community day with best practice and customer references. Take the opportunity to connect via twitter and Facebook. Also most of the conference speakers arrive on Monday and are available for 1:1 meetings!

    We would like to encourage you to network within the community using our web2.0 features. clip_image002For twitter please use the event hashtag #PaaSForum:

    As containers gain attention and traction for both development and operational purposes, it becomes increasingly important to monitor the security of running containers. In order to facilitate simple scanning of Docker and Rkt images based on Oracle Linux, we have added support for Clair and Vuls in both upstream projects.

    Clair by CoreOS

    From the CoreOS website: "Clair is an open source project for the static analysis of vulnerabilities in appc and docker containers.

    Vulnerability data is continuously imported from a known set of sources and correlated with the indexed contents of container images in order to produce lists of vulnerabilities that threaten a container. When vulnerability data changes upstream, the previous state and new state of the vulnerability along with the images they affect can be sent via webhook to a configured endpoint. All major components can be customized programmatically at compile-time without forking the project."

    Clair is most obviously seen by the integrated and automated scanning provided by CoreOS' public registry, Quay.io. Likewise, Clair is also integrated in CoreOS'Quay Enterprise product. Both support Oracle Linux as a scanning target and will report vulnerabilities detected in uploaded images.

    Clair scan of Oracle Linux images on Quay.io

    There are also various client tools including Clairctl, Klar and Reg that integrate the public Docker Hub, private Docker registries and Clair to provide command-line image scanning capabilities.

    Vuls

    Vuls (VULnerability Scanner) is an open source scanner written in Go. It's designed to scan images on a Linux or FreeBSD host and supports several target operating systems including Oracle Linux, Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS, Amazon Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, FreeBSD and Raspian.

    Vuls is an agentless scanner which only requires a single host configured with SSH access to all target machines. It includes a text-based report viewer and can provide reporting to web-based engines like VulsRepo.

    Support

    As these are third-party products, no support is provided by Oracle for any of the products mentioned in this article. If you have any issues with the Oracle Linux integration for one of these products, please open an issue with the product directly via their GitHub repository.

    Is your preferred container security product missing? Let us know! Start a new discussion in the Oracle Linux space on the Oracle Technology Network Community.

    We have documented procedures for cloning EBS 12.1.3 environments.  We also have documented procedures for integrating EBS 12.1.3 environments with Oracle Access Manager (OAM) and Oracle Internet Directory (OID).  The next logical question would be: do we have documented procedures for cloning EBS 12.1.3 environments that have been integrated with OAM and OID?

    Yes, we have published this here:

    EBS OAM architecture

    This Note provides a certified process and detailed steps to:

    • Clone EBS using Rapid Clone
    • Deregister the cloned EBS instance from OAM and remove AccessGate
    • Remove OID from the cloned EBS instance
    • Integrate the cloned EBS instance with OID
    • Integrate the cloned EBS instance with OAM
    • Reconfigure SSL

    We're happy to announce the general availability of Oracle Linux 6 Update 9, the final update release for Oracle Linux 6. You can find the individual RPM packages on the Unbreakable Linux Network (ULN) and the Oracle Linux Yum Server. ISO installation images will be available for download from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud shortly.

    Oracle Linux 6 Update 9 ships with the following kernel packages:

    • Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK) Release 4 (kernel-uek-4.1.12-61.1.28.el6uek) for x86-64
    • Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK) Release 2 (kernel-uek-2.6.39-400.294.3.el6uek) for i386

    • Red Hat Compatible Kernel (kernel-2.6.32-696.el6) for i386 and x86-64

    Application Compatibility

    Oracle Linux maintains user space compatibility with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), which is independent of the kernel version that underlies the operating system. Existing applications in user space will continue to run unmodified on Oracle Linux 6.9 with UEK Release 4 and no re-certifications are needed for applications already certified with RHEL 6 or Oracle Linux 6.

    Bug Fixes

    Oracle Linux 6 Update 9 fixes a regression introduced in glibc in the upstream release that could cause Oracle Database to fail to start in certain circumstances. This regression was found and fixed during Oracle's extensive testing of Oracle Linux with Oracle products. Customers using other Linux distributions with Oracle Database are encouraged to talk to their Linux provider about whether they also have a patch available.

    Notable features in this release include:

    • Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2 support for all system components. Other changes include vsftpd support for TLS 1.2 and auditd support for incremental_async.

    • The cpuid utility is now available. This utility dumps detailed information about CPUs gathered from CPUID instruction and is capable of determining exact CPU models. The cpuid utilty supports Intel, AMD, and VIA CPUs.
    • Improved support when running as a Hyper-V guest.
    • Enhanced SSSD Support for Active Directory.

    For more details on these and other new features and changes in Oracle Linux 6 Update 9, please consult the release notes in the Oracle Linux Product Documentation Library.

    Oracle Linux can be downloaded, used and distributed free of charge and all updates and errata are freely available. For support, you decide which of your systems require a support subscription. This makes Oracle Linux an ideal choice for your development, testing and production systems. You decide which support coverage is the best for each of your systems, individually, while keeping all of your systems up-to-date and secure. For customers with Oracle Linux Premier Support, you also receive access to zero-downtime kernel updates using Oracle Ksplice and support for Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux.
