We have recently been working on and completed an entire Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g environment setup for a customer: Identity Management WebCenter (Framework and Services) SOA Suite UCM This article is part of the recent work short blurb series.
I just had a discussion with an M&S SOA Architect about the advantages and disadvantages of BPEL vs ESB, and more importantly, where to use which in practical business scenarios. This article is part of the recent work short blurb series.
I faced this issue in the context of building an Application Business Connector Service (ABCS) using AIA / PIP, so there was a good message design where Business Objects were in a separate schema, embedded in a schema with Message definitions, which was itself embedded into a bpel project.
I’m registered and attending the Official Fusion Middleware 11g Launch in DC on July 1.
This article is a look at Oracle’s BPEL Sensor approach to publishing real time data and events for in flight BPEL Processes.
Oracle BPEL has tried to fill a gap in the BPEL Spec using sensors. Specifically, sensors allow users to overlay listeners on BPEL tasks and process variables that will generate events out of a process that is being executed. This is definitely a step in the right direction, and does a good job of staying true to the BPEL specification. This document will define what sensors are, how they should be designed into BPEL Processes, and a future outlook of event models.
Asynchronous and Synchronous BPEL processes, as their names imply, process a request in parallel or sequenctially respectively.

Polling for changes in a database has been a requirement for systems for a very long time. With Oracle BPEL, of course, this need exists and we will review one way you can go about this:
Create a BPEL that would poll the database periodically for records with a specific flag.

Oracle Corporation has recently published a white paper written by M&S Consulting, where we take the opportunity to outline an integration approach to Salesforce.com using Oracle BPEL.
