Management of SOA Composite Applications

by Ahmed Aboulnaga Arun Pareek | September 2012 | Enterprise Articles SOA Oracle

Developers typically create composite applications or simply composites that are packaged into single, deployable JAR files. These applications can contain any number of service components that include BPEL or BPMN processes, Mediator services, human tasks and workflows, and business rules. Composites include logic and code that form the foundation of SOA-based integrations. Though the design and development of composites are not the ultimate responsibility of the Oracle SOA Suite 11g administrator, the deployment, monitoring, and management of them are.

In this article, the authors Ahmed Aboulnaga and Arun Pareek of the book Oracle SOA Suite 11g Administrator's Handbook will discuss the concepts that enable you to manage these composites, and cover the following areas in more detail:

  • Managing composite lifecycles
  • Structuring composite deployments with partitions
  • Setting up ant for automated composite build management
  • Promoting code, using configuration plans
  • Understanding and configuring composite audit levels

Managing Alerts

by Andrea Dalle Vacche Stefano Kewan Lee | December 2013 | Open Source

Checking conditions and alarms are the most characteristic functions of any monitoring system, and Zabbix is no exception. What really sets Zabbix apart is that every alarm condition, or triggers—as they are known in this system—can be tied, not only to a single measurement but also to an arbitrary complex calculation, based on all of the data available to the Zabbix server. Furthermore, just as triggers are independent from items, the actions that the server can take based on trigger status are independent from the single trigger, as you will see in the subsequent sections.

In this article written by Andrea Dalle Vacche and Stefano Kewan Lee, authors of the book Mastering Zabbix, you will learn the following things about triggers and actions:

  • How to create complex, intelligent triggers
  • How to minimize the possibility of false positives
  • How to set up Zabbix to take automatic actions based on the trigger status
  • How to rely on escalating actions

Managing and Displaying Information

by lnnes Borkwood | September 2013 | Beginner's Guides Games

In this article created by lnnes Borkwood, the author of Learning Stencyl 3.x Game Development Beginner's Guide

The gameplay mechanics are in place, we've added some nice visual effects, and our game is starting to look great, but there is still an important element missing; players of our game have no indication of how they are progressing. We need to let our players know how well (or badly) they are doing, otherwise there will be no incentive for them to continue playing the game!

There are many different pieces of information that might be useful to a player during gameplay, but we need to be careful not to overwhelm them, otherwise they'll be distracted from the game. Currently, we are keeping track of the time that is available for the player to complete the task of collecting all the fruit, but we're also going to be adding a count of the lives that the player has left.

In order to present this information to the player, we need to display it on the screen, but we're not only going to implement text messages for our players to read — we're also going to introduce a graphical method of displaying some of the information.

The last piece of information that we will need to work with is how many pieces of fruit have been collected; we need to know when players of our game have successfully completed a level!

Managing Content through Tagging in Grails: Part 1

by Jon Dickinson | May 2009 | Java Open Source Web Development

As with messages, files are displayed on the home page in the order they are added to the system. Currently all messages and files are displayed on the home page. Over time, our home page is going to become rather large and unwieldy. We need a user's home page to show only the files and messages that they are interested in. To do this, users need to be able to tag their content.

The new Grails concepts that will be introduced in this two-part article series by Jon Dickinson are:

  • Working with inheritance in the domain classes, and looking at which strategies GORM supports for persistence
