Components of Oracle SOA

  • Oracle SOA Suite is a comprehensive, hot-pluggable software suite that enables you to build, deploy, and manage integrations using service-oriented architecture (SOA).
  • SOA Suite includes the following core components:
    1. BPEL — (Business Process Execution Language) Orchestrates integration processes.
    2. Human Workflow — Creates interactions that require human input, like approvals or manual routing decisions.
    3. Business Rules — Defines flexible business rules to direct actions in an integration process, such as approval routing decisions.
    4. Mediator — Mediates messages and provides routing and the capability to transform simple message flows.
  • Oracle Service Bus provides standards-based integration for high-volume SOA environments. Oracle Service Bus is a core component in Oracle SOA Cloud Service, acting as a back-bone for SOA messaging. Oracle Service Bus connects, mediates, and manages interactions between heterogeneous services, legacy applications, packaged applications, and multiple enterprise service bus (ESB) instances across an enterprise-wide service network
  • Oracle Technology Adapters. Oracle JCA-compliant adapters enable you to integrate your business applications, and provide a robust, lightweight, highly-scalable and standards-based integration framework for disparate applications to communicate with each other.
  • Oracle Cloud Adapters. Cloud adapters simplify and accelerate integration with your SaaS applications. These adapters provide value to your SaaS integrations. Specifically, they provide lower costs of implementation and maintenance, ease of use, improved developer productivity and faster time-to-market for SaaS application integrations.
  • Oracle B2B. Oracle B2B is an e-commerce gateway that enables the secure and reliable exchange of business documents between an enterprise and its trading partners. Oracle B2B supports business-to-business document standards, security, transports, messaging services, and trading partner management. With Oracle B2B used as a binding component within an Oracle SOA Suite composite application, end-to-end business processes can be implemented.
  • Oracle Enterprise Scheduler. Oracle Enterprise Scheduler is installed with Oracle SOA Cloud Service. Oracle Enterprise Scheduler enables you to define, schedule and run jobs. A job is a unit of work done on an application’s behalf. For example, you might define a job that runs a particular PL/SQL function or command-line process
  • Oracle Real-Time Integration Business Insight. Oracle Real-Time Integration Business Insight is an application designed for business users. The application provides a business-friendly experience, allowing users to model, collect, and monitor business-level metrics using web-based dashboards.
  • Oracle Business Activity Monitoring. Oracle Business Activity Monitoring (Oracle BAM) is used to monitor business processes for making tactical and strategic decisions
  • Oracle Managed File Transfer Cloud Service. Oracle Managed File Transfer (MFT) is a high performance, standards-based, end-to-end managed file gateway. It features design, deployment, and monitoring of file transfers using a lightweight web-based design-time console that includes transfer prioritization, file encryption, scheduling, and embedded FTP and sFTP servers.
