Understand Decision Model Views

image

In Processes, you can work on a decision model using either the graph view or the list view. When you create a new decision model, you’re presented with the graph view by default. You can switch to the list view and vice versa using the Menu button in the toolbar.

Note: The decision models that you’ve created previously will continue to use the list view as the default view. If you switch to the graph view, you’ll need to redefine the relationships between decisions and input data elements. Similarly, you’ll have to redefine the order of the decisions if you switch from the graph view to the list view.

Topics:

· Graph View

· List View

Graph View

In the graph view, you can create decision requirement diagrams (DRD), in accordance with the DMN standard, to visually represent your decision models.

In decision modeling, a decision requirement graph (DRG) is a self-contained representation of an entire domain of decision-making that displays the important elements in the domain and the relationships between the elements. Whereas, a decision requirement diagram typically depicts a specific view of a DRG; the view depicted can either be partial or complete.

Processes currently supports one DRD per decision model. The following table lists all the available DRD components, which you can use to create your decision models.  Read the complete article here.

A little bit of insight in SOA Suite future by Martien van den Akker

image

A few weeks ago I was made aware of a few announcements, which I think makes sense and that I want to pass on to my followers, sauced with a bit of my own perspective.

Containerized SOA

Last year I had made myself familiar with the Oracle Weblogic Kubernetes Operator. See for instance my Cheat Sheet Serie. I also had the honor to talk about it during the Tech Summit at OUK in December ’19. Weblogic under Kubernetes is apparently the way to go for Weblogic. And with that, also the Fusion Middleware Stack. However, until now only ‘plain’ Weblogic is supported under Kubernetes, on all Cloud platforms, as well as on your own on-premises Kubernetes platform. It was no surprise that SOA Suite would follow, and in March there an early access for SOA Suite on Kubernetes was announced.

In the announcement it is stated that Oracle will provide Container images for SOA Suite including OSB, that are also certified for deployment on production Kubernetes environments. Also documentation, support files, deployment scripts and samples. Later on other components will be certified. This is good news, because it will allow SOA Suite be run in co-existence with cloud native applications and be part of a more heterogenous application platform. To me this makes sense. It makes High Availability and Disaster Recovery easier, but although the application landscape will be diverse and heterogenous, this makes the maintenance, install, deploy and upgrade of FMW within that landscape more uniformly aligned with other application compents like web applications, possible microservices, etc. Read the complete article here.

Promoting Your Code by Antony Reynolds

image

A few years ago my wife and I were honored to be invited to our friends promotion ceremony. By hard work, dedication and outstanding leadership he was promoted to a full Colonel in the US Air Force. Fortunately when promoting integrations between environments it is a lot less work.

Environments

We usually have multiple environments for our code. Some possible environments are listed below:

  • Development for building integrations.
  • Test for testing integrations.
  • Production for running integrations.

Other possible environment might include

  • QA for final acceptance testing
  • Load Test for performance testing.

Promotion Requirements

When promoting code between environments some key features are worth bearing in mind.

  • Same code should be deployed to production that was tested – no changes.
    • This is important because we want to deploy to production what we tested in development and test/qa.
  • Configuration data should be separate from code – each environment will have its own unique endpoints.
    • This is important because we don’t want to accidentally store production data in test or development systems.

OIC Features to Support Code Promotion

OIC allows individual integrations to be exported. Each integration includes dependent artifacts such as lookup tables, JavaScript libraries and connection types. Note that it does not include connection endpoints or credentials as these will vary between systems. To simplify deployment multiple integrations can be bundled into a package.

How Process Workflow can extend the role of Integration – Partner Community Webcast November 24th 2020

image

Process workflow is often the human-facing counterpart of back-end integration. Each one can leverage the power of the other but they often don’t play well together because they cater for different profiles. Oracle Integration Cloud reduces this disconnect in a powerful way that opens new capabilities. We will demonstrate how each one can leverage the other, and even extend the reach of integration with the use of Robotic Process Automation.

Speaker: Chris Peytier, Oracle EMEA
Schedule: November 24th 2020 16:30-17:30 CET (Berlin time)

Data Stitch Assign operation for Elements with Attributes by Jorge Herreria

image

Overview

You might noticed some times Data Stitch ASSIGN will volunteer or remove attributes from the targeted element… On this post I explain the behavior of ASSIGN operation for elements that have attributes and give some ideas for manage it.

There’s heavy XML, XSD, XPath lingo in this post. I’ll try to explain the lingo w/o going deep into it. I use the lingo with the intent that in case you search over the internet, you get more accurate hits 😉

Expect twisted humor and a two way conversation. A quote I like: "What if it works?" ~ me

For those in a hurry

If ASSIGN is copying the attributes along with the value of the element and you do not want the attributes, the use text() function. If ASSIGN is removing the existing attributes in the TO element, then you need to save off the attributes and then reassign them back.

Syntax used in this post

(TO XPath Expression).OPERATION(FROM XPath Expression)

Example: Read the complete article here.

Docker Image for Oracle integration (OIC) Connectivity Agent by Antony Reynolds

image

This image retrieves the Oracle Connectivity Agent from an OIC instance and runs it in a docker container. For more information about the Oracle Integration Connectivity Agent please see Manage the Agent Group and the On-Premises Connectivity Agent in the Oracle Integration documentation. The container automatically connects to your OIC instance and downloads the agent zip file. This image is built on top of the Oracle Java 8 SE (Server JRE) container. A github project contains the build instructions if a customized image is required.

Running the Image

The script run.sh can be used to run the image. I makes use of the script agent_env.sh If the profile properties file (default agent.env) has no entry for the oic_PASSWORD then the container will be started in the foreground to allow entry of the username/password. If the container is started in the foreground after entering the username/password it is recommended to detach from the container (default keystroke is ^P^Q). The run.sh uses a volume to store the agent binaries and configuration. When the container exits the container is removed but the volume persists. The volume is named with the container name. The script uses the following environment variables that are defaulted if not set: Read the complete article here.

Leveraging Oracle Integration File Server For File Based Integrations by Kundan Vyas

image

Introduction

While most enterprises want to leverage modern API-based integration technologies to automate their business processes , they are also in need of a File-based integration to enable exchange of data through files. Such enterprises often require a secure file storage solution to exchange files with their trading partners, vendors and suppliers. It is very common for these enterprises to use such a file storage solution with File-based integration to schedule and automate the process of reading and transforming files before exchanging them with multiple systems.

There are multiple use cases where enterprises rely on File-based integration. Learn more about the use cases and File-based integration patterns supported by Oracle Integration in this blog from Michael Meiner.

Introducing File Server In Oracle Integration (OIC)

Oracle is introducing a new functionality called File Server which comes embedded within Oracle Integration (OIC) and offers significant advantages to enterprises which are in need of building and rolling out File based integrations. While customers can provision an SFTP server on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) compute resource today, they will now have an option to leverage an Oracle managed SFTP server that is tightly coupled with OIC.

OIC –> Updating Product Inventory in Shopify by Niall Commiskey

image

This is a typical use case – I have a eCommerce site that sells the product, I have an ERP that manages the sales lifecycle. In this case I am looking at Netsuite as the ERP and Shopify as the eCommerce site, but I assume one can extrapolate for other ERP apps. Firstly, a big thank you to my colleague Shantala S. for her support here! Now let’s begin by looking at the Product inventory in Shopify – Note from the inventory history, I can see the default location – I have partially obfuscated it but you still see the street number, 168. Ergo, we have 4 of these Leica cases in stock at the default location. As you can see, I can have more than 1 location – Read the complete article here.
