ApiaryUI by Vladimir Gorej

image

After months of hard work and burning the midnight oil I am very proud to announce ApiaryUI – our brand new, fully rethought, and refactored version of our existing Interactive Documentation.

We already gave ApiaryUI to our betatesters as a Christmas gift. We are now making it available for everyone, but before it will become THE API documentation, we want to hear from you.

ApiaryUI is implemented in a way that allows complete separation from apiary.io and possibly forming a new standalone product in the future. Some features from our existing documentation product are still missing in ApiaryUI. We’ll implement them as soon as possible. These features include:

Other features everyone asked for in existing documentation product were implemented to ApiaryUI. This includes the ones that we’re highlighting in the rest of the article. We’ve also managed to fix tonnes of existing bugs in our new ApiaryUI.

As the architecture of ApiaryUI is very simple and solid, we are able to add new features and fix bugs at a rapid pace. Our extensive suite of unit, integration and e2e tests are helping with that. Read the complete article here.

Oracle Integration Cloud REST API to get the Integration Statistics by Ankur Jain

image

Oracle Integration cloud provides a rich monitoring dashboard to see the Integration statistics. But there is a limitation that statistics can’t be downloaded from the dashboard in any format (XLS, pdf etc.). To overcome this limitation Oracle Integration Cloud provides RESTFul APIs which provides the statistics of each and every running integration.

In this article, we’ll demonstrate how to use Integration Cloud REST API to retrieve monitoring integrations as well as how to generate excel sheet using java code.

Below is the REST API details which is used to retrieve monitoring integrations: Read the complete article here.

Changing views on integration – from Enterprise Service Bus to API Gateway, Serverless and iPaaS by Lucas Jellema

image

If your tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. Many of us have seen situations where this tunnel vision over time took hold. And for many of us involved in integration, this also has happened. In this article I want to briefly draw your attention to changing views regarding integration and regarding the technology for realizing integration. Important triggers for these changing views include cloud, web scale, new type of user interaction, IoT and real time, serverless – and real life experiences with enterprise integration.

From the early 2000s when we started doing enterprise integration in earnest, we talked about the many integration patterns – synchronous and asynchronous, batch and trickle feed and many more – and primarily the ESB pattern. The enterprise service bus, that magic black box with all its connectors that you could simply plug into and that made integration of any system to any other system a simple goal to achieve. And from that somewhat theoretical approach, we then got real ESB products – tools that fulfilled that role of connecting any to any system. Not always as magically as theory had suggested, but still – we most of the times got it to work. Frequently based on XML and SOAP + WS=* based Web Services and with complex products running on massive application servers. In my case the primary technology was Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle Service Bus; comparable products were available from IBM, Microsoft, Tibco, SAP, JBoss, MuleSoft and others. SOA was the architecture style we embraced – with decoupling as the holy grail and important tenets like encapsulation, autonomy, abstraction, statelessness, reusability and the standardized service contract.

And with the integration platform in our hands, almost any data flow seemed a challenge we could nail. The capability to quickly implement a flow from A to B through the ESB product lured us into implementing many different kinds of flows on that platform. Our hammer struck again and again. From “simple UI needs some data elements from a backend database” to “documents arrive on FTP endpoint and have to be stored in document management system” – any arrow between two blocks on a diagram became an ESB subject.

Integration Cloud / HCM Integration & HCM adapter in depth by Niall Commiskey

image

I have been looking at integrating with Oracle HCM recently.
As a neophyte in respect of HCM, I first began by looking at what it actually contains –
Global HR is the core solution. From the docs A unified HR system in the cloud lets you eliminate disparate systems and align your HR processes and reporting worldwide—ensuring HR process and data consistency. To ensure efficient local operations, features such as entire system translations, data protection support, local business rules, country payrolls, and compliance reporting are crucial. Highly configurable processes are also needed to simplify quick adaptation to legislative and organizational changes—without causing disruption to your business.

Inbound Integration support within Oracle HCM.
Oracle HCM comes with a plethora of pre-built integration capabilities e.g.
HCM Data Loader: HCM Data Loader is a powerful tool for bulk-loading and maintaining data. The data can be from any source. You can use HCM Data Loader for data migration, ongoing maintenance of HCM data, and coexistence scenarios, where core HR data is uploaded regularly. Read the complete article here.

Understanding Mapping Optional Elements in OIC Integration by Jan Kettenis

image

There are some easy to make mistakes to make when mapping messages with optional elements in OIC Integrations. This article describes how optional elements are being handled, and a way to make this work the way you want.
OIC Integration handles optional elements the same for both XML as well as JSON based elements, including mapping from XML to JSON and vise verse. The reason being that internally OIC will map JSON to XML. The examples hereafter therefore are based on XML. I will discuss the examples on the following XSD that is used in an integration that maps all elements 1:1 and echoes the result back. Read the complete article here.

Machine Learning Made More Accessible To make machine learning more accessible to companies, Oracle is assembling a range of tools that different businesspeople—including managers, analysts, data scientists, developers, and IT staff—can put to work, says Oracle’s Chuck Hollis. For example, machine learning built into databases and applications can help IT managers predict the health of computer equipment and identify malicious code. Five other job types that could benefit.

Mitsubishi Electric’s Integrated IoT Using Oracle Cloud Platform “allowed us to make sense of all this machine data,” says Mitsubishi Electric’s Timothy Lomax. The company has increased uptime, boosted production, and reduced manual processes—all while decreasing floor space. The biggest gain?

Why Embed AI into Apps Oracle CEO Mark Hurd recently predicted AI in every cloud application by 2025. That’s very achievable, says Clive Swan of Oracle Adaptive Intelligent Apps, citing advances in Oracle’s intelligent enterprise resource planning, human capital management, and more. The payoff? Using AI capabilities embedded in applications your employees use every day—such as a time card app that learns work habits and can proactively fill out a timesheet for the employee to approve it. A framework for your AI strategy.

Why ‘Strategic IoT’ Is Key It might be tempting to “go crazy and build out all the machine learning or blockchain applications you’d like to,” says Oracle’s Rick Jewell, but then you must find, pay, and retain developers and data scientists. To provide an alternative, Oracle has rolled out five applications for specific functions in its IoT platform—to monitor assets, production, vehicle fleets, and customer service as well as ensure worker health and safety.

CargoSmart Brings Blockchain to Shipping CargoSmart thinks using blockchain in its logistics and shipping management business could bring a 65% time savings over handling paper, says Chief Operating Officer Lionel Louie. The benefit, he says, is a new level of “trust and transparency.”
