JDeveloper 12c becomes slow while editing BPM Process by Tiago Teixeira

 

There is a known issue with JDeveloper 12c while working on a BPM Process where JDeveloper becomes very slow while editing the process.
A simple drag and drop of an activity or a data association becomes a real pain and it seems as if JDeveloper is constantly working on the background.
To improve this I have two suggestions. The first one will not solve the issue but will help. The second will take away all your frustration!

  1. Remove the auto-build on save action
    1. Go to Tools → Preferences
    2. Search for save actions
    3. Remove the Build Project after Save from the list
  2. Apply patch # 18964763 to your JDeveloper 
    1. Download patch # 18964763 from My Oracle Support
    2. Follow the installation instructions to install the patch with OPatch
  3. Read the complete article here.

Accessing Oracle B2B metadata from your application by Tiago Teixeira

 

For some time now, Oracle B2B has exposed several methods of accessing it’s partner and message metadata from a custom application. This has been improved even further with B2B 12c.
In this post I’ll guide you through the 2 most common ways of accessing B2B’s metadata programmatically and some news of the 12c version.
The 2 main ways of accessing the metadata stored in B2B are:

  • Web Services exposed by B2B
  • Java API

Web Services exposed by B2B

You can access the WSDL’s for the available web services at the following URL:

http://host_name:port_number/b2b/services/

The most common services are:

  • Outbound Web Service – Works as an internal Listening Channel. Based on the details and headers in the soap:body, the agreement identification is done and the message is routed to the partner.
  • Translation Web Service – Allows to translate documents such as EDI and HL7 from Native to XML format (NativeToXMLService) and from XML to Native format (XMLToNativeService)
  • Query API (GetTPAConfigService) – Allows for retrieval of different metadata such as active agreements for a Trading Partner or checking if a Trading Partner has an agreement for a specific Document.

Installation of Oracle B2B 12c by Tiago Teixeira

 

clip_image002In this post I will quickly go through the steps that are necessary in order to install Oracle B2B and create a SOA domain that you can use.
I will consider that the installation will be used for a development environment and that it is done on the Linux machine.
Note that prior to the installation of B2B you will need to have machine running a Database and perform the installation of Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c Infrastructure and of the Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c SOA Suite and Business Process Management on the same machine where you will be installing B2B. You will also need to have the latest Oracle JDK 7 Update installed on that same machine.
The necessary software can be downloaded using Oracle eDelivery:

  • V44959-01.zip – Latest Oracle JDK 7 Update for Linux x86-64 (Prerequisite)
  • V44416-01.zip – Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c (12.1.3.0.0) Infrastructure (Prerequisite)
  • V44420-01.zip – Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c (12.1.3.0.0) SOA Suite and Business Process Management (Prerequisite)
  • V44421-01.zip – Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c (12.1.3.0.0) B2B and Healthcare

To install Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c Infrastructure please refer to:
Oracle Fusion Middleware Installing and Configuring the Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure
To install Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c SOA Suite and Business Process Management please refer to:
Oracle Fusion Middleware Installing and Configuring Oracle SOA Suite and Business Process Management
I’m considering that a new domain will be configured from scratch. If a SOA domain was already created previously a few of the next steps can be ignored and the existing domain can be extend to include B2B. If that is the case, for the next steps, remember to shutdown any running instances of Weblogic Server.

     1. The first part of the installation will be to install the software:

After you have downloaded the V44421-01.zip file unzip it: Read the complete article here.
