SOA Suite 11g Basics – Configuring multiple email addresses for use in BPEL email activity by Carsten Wiesbaum

soa-infra Workflow PropertiesWhen working on Oracle SOA Suite 11g solutions one might have the requirement to send out emails on various occasions. Within Oracle Fusion Middleware this capability is provided by the User Messaging Service (UMS) infrastructure. Nevertheless, some additional configuration is required in order to send emails from within a SOA composite application. This is especially true if one has to send emails from several email addresses. This article will describe how to setup SOA infrastructure in order to send emails from within BPEL processes using the email activity. The following topics will be covered:

  • Enable email communication channel
  • Configure Default email account
  • Configure additional email account using Enterprise Manager MBean Browser

This article will not cover setting up the required email server, general UMS configuration and sending mails using BPEL email activity.

The configuration is executed within Oracle Enterprise Manager 11g. To begin with one has to enter EM, expand the SOA folder and open soa-infra context menu. Within the context menu Workflow Properties can be accessed. Read the complete article here.
