In this article, by Matjaz B. Juric & Marcel Krizevnik, authors of WS-BPEL 2.0 for SOA Composite Applications with Oracle SOA Suite 11g, we will learn:
- Creating a project and importing resources from OSR
- Configuring a business service
- Testing a business service
- Creating an Alert destination
- Creating a proxy service
- Testing a proxy service
- Publishing a proxy service to the Oracle Service Registry
- Re-wiring an SOA composite application
- Oracle Service Bus use case
In this article, by Matjaz B. Juric & Marcel Krizevnik, authors of WS-BPEL 2.0 for SOA Composite Applications with Oracle SOA Suite 11g, we will get familiar with Oracle Service Bus (OSB), the Oracle strategic ESB. First, we will look at the OSB architecture and features. Then we will demonstrate the use of OSB on our Travel business process. We will show the combined use of OSB and Oracle Service Registry (OSR) to provide very high fexibility. Therefore, we will frst publish the EmployeeTravelStatus service to the OSR. Then, we will open the Oracle Service Bus Console, create a new project, and import the service and all related artifacts from OSR. Next, we will create a proxy service for the EmployeeTravelStatus service. We will show how to defne the proxy service message fow. We will also demonstrate some advanced features of OSB, such as service result caching. Then, we will deploy the new version of EmployeeTravelStatus service with a slightly different interface and show how OSB can absorb these changes by simply adding an XSL transformation. Finally, we will publish the new proxy service to OSR and modify the corresponding reference binding component in our SOA composite, so that it will retrieve the proxy endpoint address from OSR in runtime.
In this article, we will discuss the following:
- Oracle Service Bus architecture and features
- Publishing services to OSR
This article by Matjaz B. Juric and Harish Gaur, co-authors of Oracle Fusion Middleware Patterns highlights how SOA can help IT align with key business processes. SOA reduces the semantic gap between IT and business by introducing a development model that aligns the IT development cycle with the business process lifecycle. This article introduces reader to organizational and technical aspects of SOA development. It then describes how Elektro Slovenija, Slovenia's state-owned power distribution company, transformed its procurement process using Oracle BPA and Oracle SOA Suite.Read Process Driven SOA Development in full
Interactive Reporting is an extremely robust and powerful business intelligence tool providing ad-hoc querying, data analysis, dashboards, and other reporting capabilities. Business analysts access the software through the EPM Workspace, a central location for viewing and managing content across all of the Hyperion products. The product is extremely flexible and provides analysts with the ability to quickly analyze data and produce deliverables. The software provides a consistent platform for managing content, where documents can be customized, saved, and shared across an organization. The focus of this article is to provide an overview of the Interactive Reporting Web Client and EPM Workspace, providing the business analyst with the skills necessary to work with the tool on a daily basis.
The content in this article by Edward J. Cody, author of The Business Analyst's Guide to Oracle Hyperion Interactive Reporting 11, covers:
- Navigating the EPM Workspace
- Installing the Web Client
- An Overview of the Web Client interface
- Methods for opening and saving documents
- Methods for importing and provisioning files
- Steps to edit file properties

Once your PL/SQL code has successfully compiled, it is important to review it to make sure it does what is required and that it performs well. You can consider a number of approaches when tuning and testing code. These approaches include:
- Debugging—run the code and add break points to stop and inspect areas of concern.
- SQL performance—use Explain Plan results to review the performance.
- PL/SQL performance—use the PL/SQL Hierarchical Profiler to identify bottlenecks.
- Unit testing—review edge cases and general function testing. Does the code do what you intended it to do?
In this article by Sue Harper, author of Oracle SQL Developer 2.1, we'll review the debugger. We will see how to debug PL/SQL packages, procedures, and functions.Read Debugging PL/SQL in Oracle SQL Developer 2.1 in full

Pivots are one of the most widely used tools for analyzing and presenting data. Interactive Reporting Pivots provide the business analyst with a very effective method to summarize and analyze a dataset, providing the ability to quickly modify, compute, and rearrange data while easily repopulating the dataset with new data. Pivots are very useful in presenting data, where the sections can be analyzed individually or included in Dashboards and Reports. The focus of this article is to demonstrate the features of the Pivot used to effectively analyze and present content.
This article by Edward J. Cody, author of The Business Analyst's Guide to Oracle Hyperion Interactive Reporting 11, covers:
- Creating pivots
- Methods for adding content
- Managing pivot headings
- Analyzing content
