OIC Feature Flag – Data Stitch by Niall Commiskey

image

Data Stitch action in Orchestration

Available to you as feature flag
(oic.ics.console.integration.stitch-action)
Available from version -All text in italics is from ORCL docs.

This is a new capability within the orchestration designer that enables customers to initialize and progressively update complex variables within integration flows. IT specialists can now use the "Global Variables" section of the designer to define new variables in the integration flow that can hold complex content and use the data stitch action to progressively populate and/or manipulate whole or parts of the document. You can simply drag and drop the "Data Stitch" action from the component palette into the canvas and graphically model the data assignments as an ordered sequence of statements to populate scalar or complex variables wholly or partially.  Designers can add multiple data stitch actions at various points in the integration flow to update existing or append new sections to previously declared and populated variables using data from various sources.

Couldn’t have said it better myself, net, net – Data Stitch allows us to create and manipulate complex variables within an integration orchestration. This was something missing in OIC, for those coming from SOA Suite/SOA CS. Read the complete article here.

How to embed CDATA into XML: Oracle Integration Cloud by Ankur Jain

imageThere is a scenario where you are required to consume SOAP API and the API require to send CDATA as part of the request. In the article, we are going to showcase how to embed the CDATA into the XML request in Oracle Integration Cloud.

Let’s first understand what CDATA is?

A Character Data(CDATA) section contains text that will NOT be parsed by a parser. Tags inside a CDATA section will NOT be treated as markup and entities will not be expanded. The primary purpose is for including material such as XML fragments, without needing to escape all the delimiters.

Example of SOAP API having the CDATA

In the below SOAP API request, please see the “<general:BPXML>” and under this CDATA element is there. When you will consume the same into OIC, you will not see the end elements( <wrapper>, <emp>, <name>, etc. ) under CDATA in mapper. If not found in the mapper how you will send the data to SOAP request which is required. Read the complete article here.

A Simple Guide to Connect to a Private FTP Server using FTP adapter by Dinesh Pant

image

You can now integrate with an FTP server even when it is in private network and not accessible publicly. This is made possible with the latest feature where a Connectivity Agent can be configured to be used with the FTP adapter.

The FTP adapter supports connectivity to:

  • FTP/SFTP hosted on-premise – through a connectivity agent
  • FTP/SFTP hosted on cloud – without a connectivity agent, as before
Connection Properties:

Provide connection property values:

Enter the FTP/SFTP host address and port

If using a secure FTP server, then select Yes for ‘SFTP Connection’ else select No.

Security:

Please select one of the security policy

FTP Server Access Policy : for username/password authentication.

FTP Public Key Authentication : as the name suggests, for Public Key authentication.

FTP Multi Level Authentication : i.e, to authenticate using both username/password and public key. Read the complete article here.

image

The Oracle ERP integration is one of the most common integration requirement in today’s world as most of the big organization is having Enterprise Resource Planning(ERP) to manage enterprise functions including accounting, financial management, project management, and procurement etc. The article is focused on the aspects which is required in order to connect Oracle ERP system with Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) using File Based Data Import (FBDI).

Some important link which might help you to extend your knowledge

Web Application in Oracle Visual Builder

Parent Child relationship in Oracle Visual Builder

Dependent/Cascading List Of Values (LOV) in VBCS

Here is the use case which we are trying to sort out here:

  • The third party application generates CSV file and keeps the data at SFTP location. The file may be large than 10 MB
  • Convert the source file into the pre-defined FBDI format and upload into the ERP
  • Once ERP completes the import job, it will send a callback to OIC to notify the status of import job. Read the complete article here.

Introducing the Box Adapter in Oracle Integration by Yogesh Sontakke, and Tuck Chang

image

As many of you might know already, at Oracle Open World (OOW) 2019 a few months ago, we announced our partnership with Box to empower our customers to connect their cloud and on-premises Oracle and third-party applications with Box via Oracle Integration (OIC). Read the announcement from OOW here.

Box offers enterprises content management as a cloud service, enabling organizations to share files, collaborate between team members, and manage the lifecycle of content securely. As a cloud service, Box can scale as its customers needs grow in size and depth of complexity including attaching custom metadata to content and watermarking content for review.

Today, we are pleased to present the availability of the Box Adapter (in preview mode), which offers bound inbound and outbound integration with Box on the Oracle Integration platform. Integration designers can now use this adapter in conjunction with the vast array of other adapters that provide connectivity to various different technologies, cloud services, and on-premise applications.

Oracle Integration at GitHub by Gary Hostt

image

This guide acts as a repository for getting started with Oracle Integration and where to find relevant resources.

Oracle Integration, OIC, is a fully managed service offered by Oracle, ranked as a leader in application integration by Gartner. OIC offers application integration, typically triggered by an enterprise’s business events. We have many successful customers that have digitally transformed their businesses.

OIC substantially differs from Oracle’s ODI, EDQ, and GoldenGate offerings. The latter 3 offer data integration – moving larger quantities of data, typically to a data warehouse, for analysis. OIC can eliminate the pain points caused by point-to-point integrations. If this is your first time hearing about OIC, check out the OIC Product homepage.

If you do not have an OIC environment, you can start with this tutorial. You can follow these instructions so spin up an instance. Once you have OIC spun up, start with these beginner tutorials. Visit GitHub here.

Are yimageou looking to move integrations to the cloud, or just to modernize your SOA Suite platform? Join a free webcast by Oracle Platinum Partner eProseed, on 1st July, to find out how customers have used Oracle’s modern integration solutions to dramatically increase integration agility, as well as lowering costs.

Requests for new integrations are arriving faster than ever! These may be coming from:

bullet SaaS applications which are replacing traditional ERP, such as E-Business Suite.

bullet New services for call-center systems, mobile applications and chat bots.

bullet Cloud business models driving the need to work more closely with customer and partners.

bullet Furthermore, consumers need access to your data and services 24/7 with highest level of security.

Leave your Data Center behind –  SOA Suite Uplift

Many customers last upgraded their Oracle SOA Suite platforms when 12c became mainstream in 2016. This is likely running on obsolete hardware which is costly to support and more likely to fail than cloud servers. Others have “Data Center Exit” strategies so have a CxO imperative to migrate to the cloud.

What options are open to you?
