A Dirty Dozen Questions on Oracle SOA 12c You Need Answered, but Feared to Ask….

clip_image002SOA 12c Webcast Q&A   
Last month’s webcast  “Simplify Multichannel Integration with Oracle SOA Suite 12c” was a tremendous success. Once again, we’d like to thank Oracle’s Robert Wunderlich for his insight and excellent demo.

As usual, we’re happy to bring you a transcript of the Q&A session of the webcast. But as interest in these questions goes far beyond the webcast audience, we’re taking the poetic license of calling them “A Dirty Dozen Questions on Oracle SOA 12c You Need Answered, but Feared to Ask….”
1. Does Oracle SOA 12c support batch-processing using OSB, without the need to purchase an additional ETL tool like ODI?
There are a couple of things we need to take into account when we are discussing batching. If you are talking about large payloads, like GBs or Tbs in a file, it is not recommended to go with OSB (Oracle Service Bus). That is the reason Oracle recommends ODI (Oracle Data Integrator): ODI will extract the data, chunk the file into to smaller pieces and hand it over to the OSB layer, and the OSB layer will take the data and process it.
2. Is XSLT 2.0 supported in both OSB and SOA? Today in 11g it’s only supported in SOA and not in OSB?
Yes, XSLT  (Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations) are supported in both, and Oracle made many improvements on the XSLT mapper. The other thing to point out is on the XQuery side – using XQuery on both SOA Composite and Service BUS, and we have a mapper for that as well. The idea is that now, it becomes a developer’s choice in working between the two. Do you want to use XSLT or XQuery? You can use either one.
3. How much data volume can SOA handle? Read the complete article here.
