Ready, Set and Go with Oracle SOA Suite AS11
The SOA suite AS11 provides a complete integration of all the integration technologies with a single Design time, Single Metadata Repository, Single Runtime and Single Monitoring. You can use user-friendly graphical composite editor which would allow to drag and drop components like BPEL, mediator etc. Such composite can be deployed using JSR-88 based packaging and deployment framework. The deployed composites can be tested and monitored using a console. The console can be used for tracking a message hopping various components within the server, run & review unit tests, configure & enforce policies and monitor & administer faults.
Such consistent way to design, deploy, run and monitor integration projects is very important for reducing a cost of ownership. Moreover, all the runtime service engines e.g. BPEL, mediator etc converse with each other using optimized messaging. Well, the SOA suite is not just evolved into a fully integrated SCA based architecture, but each of the component has been enriched with very important and useful functionalities. Additionally, the SOA suite is a rendezvous of service oriented architecture and Event oriented/driven Architecture.
In next few days, whenever time permits, I would expose few important feature through this blog.
