Oracle SOA Suite 11g forms the heart of many organisations’ Service Oriented Architecture. Yet for such a core component, simple information on how to tune and configure SOA Suite and its infrastructure is hard to find. Because Oracle SOA Suite 11g builds on top of a variety of infrastructure components, up until now there has been no one single complete reference that brings together all the best practices for tuning the whole SOA stack.

Oracle SOA Suite 11g Performance Tuning Cookbook contains plenty of tips and tricks to help you get the best performance from your SOA Suite infrastructure. From monitoring your environment so you know where bottlenecks are, to tuning the Java Virtual Machine, WebLogic Application Server, and BPEL and BPMN mediator engines, this book will give you the techniques you need in a easy to follow step-by-step guide.

Starting with how to identify problems, and building on that with sections on monitoring, testing, and tuning, the recipes in this book will take you through many of the options available for performance tuning your application.

There are many considerations to make when trying to get the best performance out of the Oracle SOA Suite platform.

This book focuses on bringing together tips on how to identify the key bottlenecks in the whole SOA Suite infrastructure, and how to alleviate them.
