Kafka Adapter for OIC by Daniel Martins Teixeira

image

The Kafka adapter for Oracle Integration Cloud came out earlier this month, and it was one of the most anticipated releases.

So what is Kafka? You can find all about it on https://kafka.apache.org/, but in a nutshell:

Apache Kafka is a distributed streaming platform with three main key capabilities:
  • Publish and subscribe to streams of records.
  • Store streams of records in a fault-tolerant durable way.
  • Process streams of records as they occur.

Kafka is run as a cluster on one or more servers that can span multiple data centres. The Kafka cluster stores streams of records in categories called topics, and each record consists of a key, a value, and a timestamp.

Kafka Adapter Capabilities

The Apache Kafka Adapter enables you to create an integration in Oracle Integration that connects to an Apache Kafka messaging system for the publishing and consumption of messages from a Kafka topic.

These are some of the Apache Kafka Adapter benefits:

  • Consumes messages from a Kafka topic and produces messages to a Kafka topic.
  • Enables you to browse the available metadata using the Adapter Endpoint Configuration Wizard (that is, the topics and partitions to which messages are published and consumed).
  • Supports a consumer group. Read the complete article here.

Four Priorities for Every CFO’s List in 2020 #1: Move from disconnected spreadsheets to integrated insights. CFOs spend more than two hours a day chasing down and reconciling data from spreadsheets scattered across their organization. That makes it hard for CFOs to see interdependencies across the company and leaves them at a strategic disadvantage. Next on the list.

Autonomous Tech Is Moving Fast Self-driving bulldozers. Self-tuning databases. Self-diagnosing medical apps, with no doctor involved. While futuristic self-driving cars get all the publicity, the fastest change from autonomous tech will likely come in other industries, which are already getting value from these AI-driven systems.

Machine Learning in Digital Process Automation — Part III by Ralf Mueller

image

A lot has happened since the publishing of Part II of this article series. Autonomous Data Warehouse (ADW) has advanced and on the process side we’re working on a truly multi-tenant, OCI native offering. As part of this, we’re re-architecting parts of the Machine Learning capabilities for Digital Process Automation and we will talk about this in a later article. In this article though, we’d like to demonstrate how ADW and Oracle REST Data Services can be used today for the consumption of Machine Learning models in Business Processes or any other component that supports RESTful Services.

Use Case

For this article we’re considering a Rental Car Use Case. We pick this use case for various reasons:

· Renting a car is well understood by many people, almost all of us went through some great or miserable experience while renting a car.

· We have a great formal description of the case in the form of EU Rent, which was originally developed as a challenge for Business Rules implementations.

· Quite incidentally, there are two public data sets available that we could use for Machine Learning
– A Car Evaluation data set for the prediction of the car safety. This can be used to build classification models for the prediction of the safety of a car.
– A Car Mileage per Gallon (MPG) data set for the prediction of the mileage per gallon of a car. This data set can be used to build regression models. Reda the complete article here. Read the complete article here.

Boost Your WebForm Productivity with our New Expression Builder Features by Nicolas Damonte, and Kalyn Chang

image

We’re introducing several new Oracle Integration improvements we hope will markedly boost your web form expression productivity.

These enhancements are an example of our ongoing efforts to address your feedback!

Expression Editor Redesign

We’ve redesigned the form expression editor to make it easier to build and keep track of event logic. The expression editor content is now cleaner, more compact, and easier to understand. Many of the changes were made in response to feedback from customers and the User Assistance team. For example, function variables are now aligned, and expression summaries are now clearly differentiated from input fields.

To see the new expression editor in action simply follow these steps:

1. Open a Form.

2. Add an Input Text control to the Form canvas.

3. Click on the Input Text.

4. Add any event from the General Properties panel. Read the complete article here.

Dear Bob Thanks for the wonderful collaboration over more than a decade. Each time it was a pleasure to meet you during Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco. Many will remember your interviews and panel sessions – some of them recorded in a hotel (bed) room. Your support was key to the ACE & groundbreaker community to drive Oracle’s products and cloud services. Enjoy your retirement and looking forward to hear from you!

Deploying SOA Composites from Oracle JDeveloper to Oracle SOA in WebLogic Kubernetes Operator Environment by Ravi Pinto Inputs provided by Ashageeta Rao and Vivek Raj

image

This post provides steps to deploy Oracle SOA composites/applications from Oracle JDeveloper (that runs outside the Kubernetes network) to the SOA instance in WebLogic Kubernetes Operator Environment.

Pre-requisities

Note: Replace entries inside <xxxx> specific to your environment

  1. Get the Kubernetes Cluster Master Address and verify the T3 port which will be used for creating application server connections. You can use below kubectl command to get the T3 port:

kubectl get service <domainUID>-<AdministrationServerName>-external -n  <namespace>-o jsonpath='{.spec.ports[0].nodePort}’

  1. JDeveloper need to access Managed Server during deployment. In WebLogic operator Environment each Managed Servers are pods and cannot be accessed directly by JDeveloper. Hence we need to configure the Managed Server’s reachability:
    1. Decide on external IP address to be used to configure access of Managed Server ( soa cluster). Master or worker node IP address can be used to configure Managed Server accessibility. In case you decide to use some other external IP address, that need to be accessible from Kubernetes Cluster. Here we will be using Kubernetes Cluster Master IP.
    2. Get the pod names of Administration and Managed Servers (i.e. "<domainUID>-<server name>") which will be used to map in /etc/hosts. Read the complete article here.
