SOA Suite definitive guide to: The UMS adapter ( by Amis

This week Oracle released it sixth patchset ( of the SOA Suite and it’s IDE JDeveloper. In this new release there are some small changes in the IDE, but there are also some mayor changes like two new adapters; healthcare and the UMS (User Messaging Service). This blog will look into the use of the UMS adapter as a inbound and outbound service in a SOA Composite. This adapter was already available as beta in PS5 but now it is an official adapter.

By using the UMS (User Messaging Service) adapter as an inbound service you can initiate a instance of a SOA composite by receiving a email message on one or more configured recipients. By using the UMS adapter as an outbound service you can send email messages to one or more recipients with an optional option to send data message as an attachment.

Let’s get into the basics

There are two parts to this adapter; one is the implementation in your SOA composite and the second one is the configuration of the USM adapter that is deployed within Weblogic. The implementation uses inbound and outbound connection factories which need to be configured in Weblogic before the SOA Composite is deployed.

Let’s say the context of this example is to register new employees, created in the CRM system, to go through the SOA Suite to provision other systems. Changes made by one of these systems need to be pushed back to the CRM system. The CRM system can only be coupled via email.

Inbound UMS adapter

First we look into the implementation within the SOA Composite using JDeveloper  For this example just create a new SOA project with an empty composite. Let’s start with the UMS adapter as an inbound service. In the composite editor drag the UMS adapter service adapter from the component palette to the exposed services swim lane.
