Installing Oracle Event Processing 12c

July 6, 2014 Leave a comment

A week ago, Oracle released Oracle SOA Suite 12c. In this blog I will show how easy it is to create a Standalone-server environment for Oracle Event Processing (OEP) 12c.

The major new features of Oracle Event Processing 12 are the new integrated development environment based on Jdeveloper and the Event Delivery Network (EDN) event adapter nodes which provide that tight integration at runtime to SOA Suite composites and all other SOA components supporting the EDN. To read more about what’s new, read the What is new in Oracle Event Processing 12c on OTN.

Oracle Event Processing consists of the Oracle Event Processing server, Oracle Event Processing Visualizer, a command-line administrative interface, and the Oracle JDeveloper Integrated Development Environment (IDE).

The easiest way to get the Oracle JDeveloper Integrated Development Environment (IDE) is to install a SOA Suite 12c Quick Start Distribution. In this article I will show how to install and create an Oracle Event Processing server.

Before starting the installation, make sure that you have a working Java Development Kit (JDK) environment.  At the moment Oracle Fusion Middleware products require JDK7.0 Update 55 or later.

Obtain the Product Distribution

Download the Oracle Event Processing from here. Find the fmw_12.1.3.0.0_oep_Disk1_1of1.zip, download it onto your system and extract it.

Installing Oracle Event Processing

1. Lauch the installation program by invoking the following command from a terminal window:

java -jar fmw_12.1.3.0.0_oep.jar

2. The installation wizard will launch and the installation welcome screen should appear

3. Click Next.

4. Click on Browse and navigate to the folder where the Oracle Event Processing home should be placed.

11. Click Finish.

By that the Oracle Event Proceessing server software has been installed. In order to use it, we have to create an Oracle Event Processing domain.

Note: An Oracle Event Processing installation does not include Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure, so only Standalone-server domains may be created for Oracle Event Processing. A standalone-server domain can later be incorporated into a Multiserver domain, if needed.

Configuring an Oracle Event Processing Sandalone-server domain

An Oracle Event Processing standalone-server domain contains a single Oracle Event Processing server. By default, the Configuration Wizard creates a standalone-server domain, which can be the starting point for a multiserver domain.

The Configuration Wizard is an administration tool that enables you to create a new domain or update an existing domain.

1. Lauch the Configuration Wizard in graphical mode by invoking the following command from a terminal window:

cd [OPE_HOME]/oep/common/bin/
./config.sh

2. The Configuration Wizard welcome screen should appear.

3. Click Next.

createdomain-2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Choose Create a new OEP domain and click Next.

createdomain-3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. In the Configure Administrator username and Password screen enter wlevs into the User name field and welcome1 into the User password and Confirm user password field.

6. Click Next.

createdomain-2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7. On the Configure Server screen, enter oep_server into the Server name field and 9002 into the Server listen port field.

8. Click Next.

create-domain5

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

9. On the Configure Domain Identity Keystore screen enter welcome1 into the Keystore password field and Confirm keystore password field.

10. Click Next.

createdomain-6

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

11. On the Configuration Options screen, accept the defaults and click Next.

createdomain-5

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

12.  On the Create OEP Domain screen, enter oep_domain into the Domain name field and accept the default for the Domain location field.

13. Click Create to start the domain creation process. The progress is shown on the Creating Domain screen.

crate-domain-7

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

14. Click Done to exit the Configuration Wizard.

Go to the domain location to see the domain just created. I have installed the domain on /u00/app/oracle/product/oep12c/user_projects/domains/oep_domain, which can also be seen on the confirmation screen above.

config-folder

With the standalone-server domain in place, we can start the server.

Starting OEP server

To start the OEP server with the domain created above, perform the following steps:

1. Open a terminal window.

2. Navigate to the domain directory

cd /u00/app/oracle/product/oep12c/user_projects/domains/oep_domain/oep_domain.

3. Run the startwlevs.sh script:

./startwlevs.sh

run-server

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You now have a running Oracle Event Processing server and can start developing and running Oracle Event Processing applications.

In order to get the Jdeveloper Integrated Development Environment, follow my other blog Installing Oracle SOA Suite 12c Quick Start Distribution.

Unable to change WS Policy Store to “App Server Connection” in JDeveloper

January 5, 2014 Leave a comment

Today when trying different settings with Basic Authentication and SOA Suite, I wanted to from the embedded OWSM Policy Repository of JDeveloper to the one stored on the application server. In JDeveloper you can do that through preferences (Tools | Preferences). See this blog for more details.

Click on the App Server Connection option and choose an existing connection through the Connections drop-down or add a new one by clicking New.

Unfortunately the change was not saved after clicking OK and when returning to the screen the option was still set to File Store.

A restart of JDeveloper just before changing the option solved the issue!

Poster published: Adaptive Case Management (ACM) in Practice

December 23, 2013 Leave a comment

Knowledge-driven processes are typically unpredictable in their execution. Experts working on them decide what’s the next best action to take. This is in contrast to traditional BPM, in which all possible paths of a process are predetermined and modeled into the process. Adaptive Case management is a way to control and implement these unstructured processes.

We (Masons of SOA) published the poster Adaptive Case Management (ACM) in Practice, showing some of the key aspects of Adaptive Case Management (ACM) on one page.

First two chapters of “Industrial SOA” articles series have been published both on OTN and Service Technology Magazine

April 22, 2013 Comments off

Updated: 14.4.2013

Industrial SOA is a 14-part  article series focused on service orientation, written collaboratively by a group of recognized experts and community leaders in service oriented architecture. I’m really happy and proud to be part of that group. 

NewImage

SOA and service-orientation have laid the foundation for a variety of emergent service technology innovations, while the original building blocks of SOA and service-orientation continue to evolve by embracing fundamental service technologies, concepts and practices. These new technology innovations do not replace service-orientation; they use it as their basis. Service-orientation continues to evolve towards a factory approach, towards industrializing integrated platforms, such as BI, master data management (MDM), mobile front-ends, BPM, adaptive processes, Big Data and Cloud Computing – all of which add architectural layers upon SOA-based infrastructure. All of these technologies can interface via standardized data and functions, published as service contracts, in order to avoid redundancy – that’s service-orientation.

The articles are & will be published both on Oracle Technology Network (OTN) and Service Technology Magazine (STM).

Available and upcoming Articles:

Chapter 1 : Industrial SOA (OTN, STM)
Chapter 2: SOA Blueprint: A Toolbox for Architects (OTN, STM)
Chapter 3: Service Categories (OTN, STM)
Chapter 4: SOA Maturity (OTN, STM)
Chapter 5: Enterprise Service Bus (OTN, STM)
Chapter 6: Securing a SOA Landscape (OTN, STM)
Chapter 7: Understanding Service Compensation (OTN, STM)
Chapter 8: SOA and User Interaction (OTN, STM)
Chapter 9: SOA in Real Life: Mobile Solutions (OTN, STM)
Chapter 10: Event-Driven SOA (OTN, STM)
Chapter 11: MDM and SOA: Be Warned! (OTN, STM)
Chapter 12: BPM and ACM (OTN, STM)
Chapter 13: SOA and Cloud (OTN, STM)

Thomas Erl, Editor of Service Technology Magazine: “Welcome to this special issue in which we are launching an extensive article series dedicated to the exploration of contemporary SOA topics and issues. This refreshing view of what is termed as “Industrial SOA” highlights some of the more recent innovations in practice that will especially be of interest to those who want to learn some techniques that go beyond the academic essentials. This issue begins with a preface by Oracle veteran Juergen Kress, and then moves on to the first of twelve articles in the series. Subsequent issues of the Service Technology Magazine will publish new articles, which will take the series into early 2014. These articles were authored by a group of SOA experts that have received wide-spread recognition throughout Europe and have been nicknamed the “Masons of SOA”. One of the masons, Clemens Utschig, was also a co-author of the SOA Manifesto back in 2009.”

I’m speaking at DOAG IMC Summit, 6th June 2013 in Mainz, Germany

April 10, 2013 Leave a comment

In June I will be speaking for the German Oracle User Group (DOAG) at the Infrastructure and Middleware Community Summit in Mainz. This is all about Oracle Infrastructure and Middleware topics and has great speaker lineup for the german-speaking Oracle community.  The summit consists of the three tracks “Infrastructure”, “Middleware” and “on top of Middleware”.

My speech will be in the “on top of Middleware” track and it will be about “Where and when to use the Oracle Service Bus (OSB)”. Here is the abstract to my talk in german:

Der Oracle Service Bus (OSB) ist Bestandteil der SOA Suite 11g und steht im Zentrum moderner Prozess-. und Integrationslösungen. Die leichtgewichtige, zustandslose und hoch-performante Architketur des OSB macht ihn zu einem hervorragenden Werkzeug für die Transformation und das Weiterleiten (routing) von Nachrichten. Diese Präsentation erklärt wo und wann der Einsatz des Oracle Service Bus Sinn macht, zeigt dabei aber auch auf, wo die Limitationen des OSB sind. Wo sinnvoll wird auf die weiteren Komponenten der Oracle SOA Suite bzw. der Oracle Fusion Middleware hingewiesen. Anhand von bekannten Design Patterns wird gezeigt, wie diese mit dem Oracle Service Bus effizient umgesetzt werden können. Themen des Vortrages sind: Load-Balancing, Service-Throttling, Transaktionen, Adapter und Transformation über XQuery. 

Looking forward to meeting you there!
