How Granular Should My Microprocesses Be? By Jan Kettenis

image

As with all modularization principles, finding the right granularity is not always trivial and the more important. Some of us have seen complete projects fail because of getting this wrong. The Microprocess Architecture is no exception to this rule and in the following I discuss this topic, hoping to guide you in getting it right.

As explained in the article introducing the Microprocess Architecture the rationale for applying it consists of a combination of reducing impact when implementing new features and bug fixes, ease applying them to an already deployed business process, supporting parallel development and few others. Said differently and in one word: agility.

To correct the mistake made in the introducing article of not defining what a microprocess stands for:

A microprocess is a subprocess of a larger business process, where the subprocess spans the execution of one or more activities to reach a business significant state change of the business process, and which can be developed and deployed as a stand-alone component.

This definition implies that the scope of a microprocess has business visibility. However, as such that does not yet clarify the right granularity. Too course-grained and there is a risk of not delivering on the core value of agility, too fine-grained and you risk issues with performance and scalability.

So, what is the right granularity? First let me try to illustrate by example. I then capture some of the main characteristics that should give you guidance on how to apply it for your use case.

Order handling example

An order handling process of a bank, that starts with a customer submitting an order form and ends with invoking one or more back-end systems to handle the delivery, could consist of the following microprocesses: Read the complete article here.

Database Xpath-extension Functions in SOA 12 by Pranav Davar

image

In SOA, we can connect with databases using a database jca adapter and configuring the data source and connection factory in the WebLogic server. Sometimes, we may want to query the database directly within the BPEL component or XSLT without configuring a database jca adapter. For such use cases, we can take leverage of database functions that can be used within BPEL Assign Activity or XSLT transformations.

We have 3 different database functions available, that can be used in different use cases.

  1. oraeext:sequence-next-val()
  2. oraext:lookup-table()
  3. oraext:query-database()

1. oraext:sequence-next-val()

Syntax:

oraext:sequence-next-val(sequence as string, dataSource as string)
sequence: Specify the sequence available in the database for which the next value needs to be extracted.

dataSource: Specify the Data source JNDI name as configured in WebLogic server or JDBC string in the format jdbc:oracle:thin:username/password@host:port:sid

Note: Only oracle thin driver is supported if used as JDBC string.

This function is used when we want to fetch the next value of defined sequence in the database. It can be used in cases where we want each request to adhere with a particular sequence id which can be used to identify each unique record where using a db adapter might create overhead and extra transformation. This function is basically an alternative to the below SQL statement. Read the complete article here.

OIC Monitoring and Logging Analytics – adding Business Data to Dashboards by Niall Commiskey

imageIntegration Insight is THE solution for business user facing Dashboards on top of your integrations and processes. However, you can also surface business / payload data in Logging analytics. The example below is again based on the OIC Activity Stream logs.

Now we do suggest turning off logging for your production integrations, however, there may be reasons for logging, such as for compliance purposes e.g. I need to prove when order nr 123 was processed. The OIC LOG action will still write to the OIC Activity Stream, even when flow logging has not been enabled.

Here is my simple order processing integration -  Read the complete article here.

OIC Monitoring and Logging Analytics – more steps towards Fleet Management by Niall Commiskey

imageThe previous post mentioned 2 OIC instances in two different regions. A typical fleet management requirement would be to check whether both OIC instances are up and running. Here’s where OCI APM – Application Performance Management can help -.

It contains a feature called Synthetic Monitoring -  The APM docs tells us that Synthetic Monitoring helps in simulating a path in the application that a user would normally take, and ensure that the user can transition through the different web pages in the path smoothly. This helps is recognizing application performance issues before the end user experiences it. I created 2 simple ping-style integrations, one in my London and one in my Phoenix OIC instance. These can then be called by APM – Read the complete article here.
