Deploying Oracle Service Bus (OSB) Projects with Configuration Files in FlexDeploy by Greg Draheim

OSB Configuration files allow the developer to manage environment specific values during deployment.  FlexDeploy supports the use of these configuration files and extends them to using tokens in the configuration file that will get replaced with configured properties from FlexDeploy.   This way we do not need to generate a customization file for every environment where we are going to deploy the project.  We can have one configuration file that will work across environments.

My example is built using JDeveloper and SOA 12.2.1.  I have an OSB project named ValidatePayment that is acting as a proxy service for a SOA service:

The ValidateBS when I run locally, refers to localhost:

When I deploy this to our shared development environment, I want to replace http://localhost.flexagon:7001/ with http://soalt05.flexagon:7001/.  When I deploy to production, I want the URL to be http://soa.flexagon.com/.  To accomplish this I add a property to my OSB Deploy workflow in FlexDeploy.  First, I will show the full workflow for the OSB deploy.  Since FlexDeploy has smart plugins, the deploy workflow is a simple 1 step process to import the OSB project: Read the complete article here.

One Response to Deploying Oracle Service Bus (OSB) Projects with Configuration Files in FlexDeploy by Greg Draheim

  1. Priyanka Makke says:

    Architecture Overview :
    Oracle Service Bus architecture is centered around an Enterprise Service Bus. The bus provides message delivery services, based on standards including SOAP, HTTP and Java Messaging Service (JMS). It is typically designed for high-throughput, guaranteed message delivery to a variety of service producers and consumers. It supports XML as a native data type, while also offering alternatives for handling other data types.

    Oracle Service Bus is policy driven and enables you to establish loose coupling between service clients and business services, while maintaining a centralized point of security control and monitoring. It stores persistent policy, proxy service, and related resource configurations in metadata, that can be customized and propagated from development through staging to production environments required. The message-brokering engine accesses this configuration information from its metadata cache.

    Oracle Service Bus is an intermediary that processes incoming service request messages, determines routing logic, and transforms these messages for compatibility with other service consumers. It receives messages through a transport protocol such as HTTP(S), JMS, File, and FTP, and sends messages through the same or a different transport protocol. Service response messages follow the inverse path. The message processing by Oracle Service Bus is driven by metadata, specified in the message flow definition of a proxy service.
