Cloud Integration Part 4: Design Patterns by Joel Perez and Arturo Viveros


In this fourth and last chapter of the Oracle Cloud Integration Series, we will go through a series of design patterns, which should facilitate the implementation of scenarios similar to those explained in chapters 2 and 3.

These patterns are proven solutions to the multiple challenges posed by Cloud Integration requirements. Besides explaining them, we’ll also attempt to establish a relationship between them and the toolset provided by the Oracle stack.

We’ll review the following patterns:

Multi-Device Broker

  • Service State Management
  • Service Agent Architecture

All of these patterns also support and comply with the characteristics, deployment and delivery models mentioned in the first chapter, so let’s describe them one by one:

Cloud integration will most likely require our services, whether they are cloud-based or on-premise, to interact with multiple devices, components, channels and protocols. This can automatically lead to lack of inter-operability among the various elements of such scenarios, necessitating conversion/transformation logic as part of our integration workflows, and surfacing hidden integration costs–and, in some cases, tight coupling and vendor lock-in.

Take a look at the following interface-enabled, Enterprise Application Integration(EAI) style architecture for a cloud integration scenario: Read the complete article here.
