Synchronous versus Fire-and-Forget Process to Process Invocation by Jan Kettenis

imageIn the following article I explain why you should implement a Structured to Structured Process call as synchronous when you need that call to be recoverable in case of an issue.

To call a Structured Process (that is initiated by a Message Start event) from another one, there are 2 ways to do so (actually there are 3 if you count in the Micro Process feature but that is a variation of one of these, I suspect the first):

  • Using the /ic/api/process/v1/processes API
  • Using the WSDL of the called process

I typically do the latter, as I find it to be simpler than using the API because importing the WSDL involves an automatic import of the XSD schema containing the request definition. Copy & paste of the WSDL URL and you’re done and when the interface changes, all I have to do is re-import the schema (in contrast, when using the API I have to manually figure out the proper JSON sample).

However, whichever way you use both concern a web service based interface, which you can configure to invoke in one of two ways:

  • As Fire-and-Forget
  • As synchronous (request/response)

Question is which one to use? The answer is simple: use synchronous in case there is no callback and you want to be sure the invocation either succeeds or can be recovered when it fails. If you don’t care, use Fire-and-Forget. Read on to find out why.
First let me point out the Fire-and-Forget Enterprise Integration Pattern. As it will tell you, in case of Fire-and-Forget error handling is not possible and you would need some Guaranteed Delivery mechanism to prevent the risk of losing messages. Mind that web service based invocation is not message based (which would involve using a Message Channel and with that typically an Invalid Message Channel to capture bad messages). So, in case of Fire-and-Forget there will be the risk of running into a non-recoverable error (hence the conclusion). OIC has no "magic feature" supporting recovery from failed invocations to Fire-and-Forget web services. And mind you, this is consistent with the pattern. Read the complete article here.

Process Automation free hands-on lab on-demand

imageIn this lab, you’ll use the Process component of Oracle Integration (OIC) to build a process automation application Mama Maggy’s store managers use to enter order requests. Regional managers use the application to evaluate order requests from store managers. If the requests are approved, orders will be created in the ATP database using an imported integration. Estimated duration: 1-2 hours.

Lab Objectives

Upon completion of this Lab you will be able to:

  • Model an order submission and approval process using OIC’s Process Automation component;
  • Create a process application enabling store managers to submit requests and regional managers to approve/disapprove them;
  • Import a pre-built integration into the process model to add a new order to the ATP database. Access the training here.

An Introduction to Jarvis Pizzeria! By Richard Olrichs

image

So that is the team! In the time to come, we will start automating our pizza process with the help of Oracle PCS. One of the goals for this project is very selfish, we want to explore PCS and familiarize ourselves with the tool and technology. We joined effort to discuss our findings, ask questions and motivate each other. However, now it is also time to share our experiences with the Community. This will happen in a blog series on our sites as well as via implementation examples and presentations at Oracle related Events.
In essence we have cut the automated pizza process in a couple of separated, decoupled steps; the preparation, the payment & the delivery. Within these steps we will use several familiar techniques, like Human Tasks and Business Rules. We will compare the PCS options to their BPM counterpart and share our findings from a level of ‘MyFirstPcsProcess’ to a more in-depth analysis of the tool and product.
As you can see, our use case reflects upon the process, how PCS relates to BPM, how easy it is to implement a business process, the usage of gateways, business rules and other features we know from BPMN. As a result, our focus has been on Oracle PCS and Oracle PCS alone. This means our lessons learned will also be focussed on PCS and probably will not translate one on one to a real business case.
For example, we use the integration within PCS, to directly call REST and SOAP endpoints, while for a critical, core business system, it is wise to let this integration go through the Integration Cloud as abstraction layer from the process. We hope you enjoy our blog series, happy readings!
