Building your First VBCS Application by John Ceccarelli

image 

In this lesson, look at building our first app, the simple Expense Report app. We’ll spend a fair amount of time reviewing the artifacts that are created and how we can customize them.

Setting Up the Project

Throughout this series we will be working mostly on one project, Expense Reports. We will start small and eventually incorporate everything from complex server-side rules to Process Cloud Service flows. To start with, we will just import a project that contains the Business Objects and an empty web application.

Importing the Project
  1. Download this ZIP to your computer.
  2. Click Import > Import from File
  3. Drag the ExpenseReportStarting.zip file into the dialog
  4. Give the file any name you want, I suggest ExpenseReport YourName
  1. Click Import.

Adding the List

  1. Click the project to open it.
  2. In the left panel, click the Web Applications node. Then expand flows -> main and click main-start. The page opens in the Page Designer.
  3. Drop a List View onto the page.
  4. Read the complete article here.

Oracle Again a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service

image

Report solidifies Oracle’s leadership in execution and vision for enterprise customers. For the third straight year, Oracle was named a Leader in Gartner’s 2019 “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS)” report. Special thanks to the PaaS Partner community to deliver successful customer projects.

iPaaS offerings are crucial for the modern enterprise to adopt hybrid digital transformation strategies, making this recognition a testament to Oracle’s continued success in delivering value to its large enterprise customers.

“Successfully transforming into a digital business requires putting into place the foundation of agile connectivity spanning any combination of cloud-native and on-premises,” said Bruce Tierney, director of product marketing for Integration, Oracle. “Being recognized as a Leader for the third year in a row demonstrates our ability to help customers innovate now and in the future.”

According to the report, Oracle’s strong global presence is a major benefit for end users. Oracle’s broad network enables them to use Oracle Integration Cloud locally, whether directly or through Oracle’s SaaS and PaaS channels, almost anywhere in the world. Its offerings in PaaS, IaaS, and SaaS technology sectors make Oracle one of the most cohesive and versatile enterprise iPaaS suites on the market.

Oracle’s iPaaS services include Oracle Integration Cloud and Oracle SOA Cloud Service and eliminate barriers between business applications through a combination of machine learning, embedded best-practice guidance, pre-built integration, and process automation. Oracle Integration Cloud is an easy to use and powerful integration platform targeting ad hoc integrators with tools such as process automation, while Oracle SOA Cloud delivers a high-control platform for specialist integrators. With more than 100 adapters, customers can quickly integrate and scale Oracle, third-party, and on-premises applications, APIs, people and devices. Additionally, Oracle has many other cross-PaaS offerings that can be combined with Oracle’s iPaaS services to deliver greater productivity. Those services include data integration to support real-time data streaming, batch data processing, and enterprise data quality and governance; Oracle API Platform Cloud Service for API first design and management; and Oracle Internet of Things (IoT) Cloud Service for IoT integration. Oracle API Platform Cloud, leveraging the unique API-first design tool from Apiary that is used by over 300,000 developers and 400,000 APIs, is designed to eliminate the complexities associated with transforming on-premises API solutions into the cloud so companies can thrive in the digital economy.

Evolution of Business Process Modeling by Eduardo Chiocconi

imageIt has been a while since I wrote about the different process types, and why there is not a single silver bullet process modeling styles. If you want to read more about my first write up, you can follow this link to read more: Not all processes are created the same.

Structured Business Processes

In the early days of our business process automation space, the incumbent process modeling experience was mostly using flow diagrams. These flow models layed out a well defined set of business process steps (aka: activities) whose primary purpose was the capture best practices and standard procedures. These procedures needed to be followed in the organization that adopted them. When these structured business process models were implemented in a BPMS (Business Process Management Systems) solution, the implementing organization got a means to digitize these standard procedures and how they wanted to run their business processes and enforce execution all across. Not only business processes followed a very strict recipe, but in highly regulated industries, it offered the a way to check the audit trail records for each business process transaction, helping reduce risk and enforce compliance to policies and regulations. As structured flow diagrams became more mainstream and multiple products offered their own flavor of notation (also with their own notation interpretation), the BPMN (Business Process Modeling Notation) standard offered a common and agreed way to document business processes. This important standardization step also brought some order in the space, and helped BPMS vendors to focus efforts in supporting this business process modeling de-facto standard (or a good subset of it really!). Examples of these business process type include onboarding new customers (this is an across the board use case but very common in finance and insurance), managing approvals across different domains like order discounts and performing the multiple necessary validation steps before some coverage can be granted. Bottom line, examples exists in every industry and with varied complexities.

Unstructured Business Processes

But not all processes are the same! While structured flow-based business processes are indeed a great tool in the toolbox, this notation does not serve well other types of business processes that are completely unstructured or follow a more relaxed set of dependencies. The sequence and order in which process steps or activities are executed is determined every time there is an event in the process and this really goes against the structured and deterministic model we talked on the first section. In this unstructured modeling style, business process steps or activities are not connected via arrows or transitions. Each activity has an activation and termination expression or rule. These rules can refer to other activities or also make reference to the specific data defined for this business process (for example service type, place of origination, specific SLAs, etc). This new way of defining dependencies really allow a BPMS engine to execute following an event drive mode since each time something happens to the process (for example another step is executed), the BPMS engine needs to determine which activities need to be activated (and also likely terminated). As certain events occur for a process instance, the process has the ability to reconfigure itself and determine a new path. Read the complete article here.

SOA Suite on containerized platform – Docker by Michel Schildmeijer

image

In this post I am exploring the sense of configuring and running an Oracle SOA Suite 12.2 domain on docker and managed by Kubernetes, to discover if SOA is a good candidate to run on Docker.

The server where I will install it is running Oracle Linux 6.8; unfortunately Kubernetes now is supported on Linux 7, so my next post will handle that subject.

First of all here are my install bits and experiences.

Setting up Docker

Before installing I had to add some YUM repo to get the right docker package:

  1. export DOCKERURL="https://yum.dockerproject.org/repo/main/oraclelinux/6" 
  2. rm /etc/yum.repos.d/docker*.repo 
  3. yum-config-manager –add-repo "$DOCKERURL/oraclelinux/docker-ce.repo" 
  4. yum-config-manager –enable docker-ce-stable-17.05 
  5. Read the complete article here.
