Round Trip On-Premise Integration (Part 1) – ICS to EBS by Greg Mally

clip_image002

 

One of the big challenges with adopting Cloud Services Architecture is how to integrate the on-premise applications when the applications are behind the firewall. A very common scenario that falls within this pattern is cloud integration with Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS). To address this cloud-to-ground pattern without complex firewall configurations, DMZs, etc., Oracle offers a feature with the Integration Cloud Service (ICS) called Connectivity Agent (additional details about the Agent can be found under New Agent Simplifies Cloud to On-premises Integration). Couple this feature with the EBS Cloud Adapter in ICS and now we have a viable option for doing ICS on-premise integration with EBS. The purpose of this A-Team blog is to detail the prerequisites for using the EBS Cloud Adapter and walk through a working ICS integration to EBS via the Connectivity Agent where ICS is calling EBS (EBS is the target application). The blog is also meant to be an additional resource for the Oracle documentation for Using Oracle E-Business Suite Adapter.

The technologies at work for this integration include ICS (Inbound REST Adapter, Outbound EBS Cloud Adapter), Oracle Messaging Cloud Service (OMCS), ICS Connectivity Agent (on-premise), and Oracle EBS R12.  The integration is a synchronous (request/response) to EBS where a new employee will be created via the EBS HR_EMPLOYEE_API. The flow consists of a REST call to ICS with a JSON payload containing the employee details.  These details are then transformed in ICS from JSON to XML for the EBS Cloud Adapter. The EBS adapter then sends the request to the on-premise connectivity agent via OMCS. The agent then makes the call to EBS where the results will then be passed back to ICS via OMCS. The EBS response is transformed to JSON and returned to the invoking client. The following is a high-level view of the integration: Prerequisites read the complete article here.

PaaS4SaaS Developers’ Code Is Always ‘On’: OAUX is on OTN and GitHub by Ultan O’Broin

clip_image001Boom! That’s the sound of thunder rolling as PaaS and SaaS developers work as fast as lightning in the cloud. The cloud has changed customer expectations about applicationstoo; if they don’t like their user experience (UX) or they don’t get it fast, they’ll go elsewhere.

PaaS4SaaS developers know their code is always ‘on’.

But you can accelerate the development of your PaaS4SaaS solutions with a killer UX easily by now downloading the AppsCloudUIKit software part of the Cloud UX simplified UI Rapid Development Kit (RDK) for Release 10 PaaS4SaaS solutions from the Oracle Technology Network (OTN) or from GitHub.

The Oracle Applications User Experience (OAUX) team’s Oracle Cloud UX RDK works with Oracle JDeveloper 11.1.1.9.0, 12.1.3.0.0 and 12.2.1.0.0. The kit downloads include a developer eBook that explains the technical requirements and how to build a complete SaaS or PaaS solution in a matter of hours.

The AppsCloudUIKit software part of our partner training kit is on OTN and GitHub and is supported by video and eBook guidance.

The developer eBook is part of the AppsCloudUIKit downloads on OTN and GitHub.

Learn about UX highlights in Release 10

 

The Oracle Applications User Experience (OAUX) team is shifting its focus to the second part of our “simplicity, mobility, extensibility” story for Release 10. The linchpin to that part of the story? Increasing the participation of users. We know that if users don’t find value in the application, they won’t use it, which could cost customers time and money. Check out the posts below for more on the user experience highlights in each product family:

Release 10 highlights include a gorgeously updated, consistent, mobility-focused user experience, even more ways to make the experience look like your company for your users, seamless customization with our UI developer toolkit, and an ongoing investment in refining, adding to, and updating the experience based on customer feedback. Read about the Oracle OpenWorld 2015 perspective on these benefits in “Oracle Banks on CX Cloud Verticals.” For more highlights of Oracle HCM Cloud Release 10, see this video.

STRATEGY: On Forbes.com, check the Oracle Voice blog for “5 Best Practices In Application User Experience” to read takeaways from OAUX Vice President Jeremy Ashley’s OpenWorld presentations. Ashley is also quoted in “Digital Disruption: Hype And Sensibility,” where he talks about the cloud and the simplicity needed for user experience design.

HCM CLOUD: What does “user experience” mean in the Oracle HCM Cloud? Aylin Uysal, Oracle Senior Director, HCM Cloud User Experience, discusses Oracle’s strategy and approach to defining the user experience for Oracle’s HCM Cloud on HCM Talk Radio, a podcast in which experts and guests share the latest in HCM Cloud best practices and knowledge.

HCM Cloud – Bulk Integration Automation Using SOA Cloud Service by Jack Desai

clip_image002

 

Introduction

Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud provides a comprehensive set of tools, templates, and pre-packaged integration to cover various scenarios using modern and efficient technologies. One of the patterns is the batch integration to load and extract data to and from the HCM cloud. HCM provides the following bulk integration interfaces and tools:

HCM Data Loader (HDL)

HDL is a powerful tool for bulk-loading data from any source to Oracle Fusion HCM. It supports important business objects belonging to key Oracle Fusion HCM products, including Oracle Fusion Global Human Resources, Compensation, Absence Management, Performance Management, Profile Management, Global Payroll, Talent and Workforce Management. For detailed information on HDL, please refer to this.

HCM Extracts

HCM Extract is an outbound integration tool that lets you select HCM data elements, extracting them from the HCM database and archiving these data elements as XML. This archived raw XML data can be converted into a desired format and delivered to supported channels recipients.

Oracle Fusion HCM provides the above tools with comprehensive user interfaces for initiating data uploads, monitoring upload progress, and reviewing errors, with real-time information provided for both the import and load stages of upload processing. Fusion HCM provides tools, but it requires additional orchestration such as generating FBL or HDL file, uploading these files to WebCenter Content and initiating FBL or HDL web services. This post describes how to design and automate these steps leveraging Oracle Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) Cloud Service deployed on Oracle’s cloud Platform As a Service (PaaS) infrastructure.  For more information on SOA Cloud Service, please refer to this.

Oracle SOA is the industry’s most complete and unified application integration and SOA solution. It transforms complex application integration into agile and re-usable service-based components to speed time to market, respond faster to business requirements, and lower costs.. SOA facilitates the development of enterprise applications as modular business web services that can be easily integrated and reused, creating a truly flexible, adaptable IT infrastructure. For more information on getting started with Oracle SOA, please refer this. For developing SOA applications using SOA Suite, please refer to this.

These bulk integration interfaces and patterns are not applicable to Oracle Taleo.

Main Article

HCM Inbound Flow (HDL)

Oracle WebCenter Content (WCC) acts as the staging repository for files to be loaded and processed by HDL. WCC is part of the Fusion HCM infrastructure.

The loading process for FBL and HDL consists of the following steps:

  • Upload the data file to WCC/UCM using WCC GenericSoapPort web service
  • Invoke the “LoaderIntegrationService” or the “HCMDataLoader” to initiate the loading process.

However, the above steps assume the existence of an HDL file and do not provide a mechanism to generate an HDL file of the respective objects. In this post we will use the sample use case where we get the data file from customer, using it to transform the data and generate an HDL file, and then initiate the loading process.

The following diagram illustrates the typical orchestration of the end-to-end HDL process using SOA cloud service: Read the complete article here.
