In Detail

Every Enterprise should have a learning curve in building better integration solutions from inaccuracy. Since Integration becomes the backbone of every corporate IT system, it is important to build the integration solution based on industry proven best practices. Oracle being a leader in enterprise solutions brings industry best practices and open standards as Oracle AIA framework. Oracle AIA Foundation Packs provide an open standard data model, templates and methodologies to build integrations and processes for enterprise applications. This book will guide you through the Oracle AIA fundamentals and development practices.

Oracle Application Integration Architecture (AIA) Foundation Pack 11gR1 focuses on the fundamentals of integration, the AIA approach to integration and various integration components in AIA. This book is developer- friendly as the structure of the book explains each component right from architecture to development.

This book covers Oracle AIA and its approach for better collaboration with integration teams. It covers all the components of the Oracle AIA Foundation Pack.

This book begins with AIA fundamentals, architecture, and components from Enterprise Business Objects (EBO), Enterprise Business Message (EBM), Enterprise Business Services (EBS), Application Business Connector Service (ABCS), and Enterprise Business Flow (EBF). However, this is not enough to build enterprise solution, so this book also covers AIA security, version management, design patterns, error handling, and centralized repository. In turn, this book doesn't leave out testing; it covers Composite Asset Validation System (CAVS). Finally, the last chapter ends with case studies that express real-time scenarios.
