The new Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g just got released a few days back, so time to play with it!
Oracle did a great job on the installation guide and quickstart again, so installation wasn't a real hard job.
A short overview of the steps we need to follow
Install Oracle Database (i used OracleXE)
Create Schemas for Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle BAM by using Repository Creation Utility (RCU)
Install Oracle WebLogic Server and Create the Middleware Home
Installing Oracle SOA...
Yesterday we had the 'feedback' day/evening from the WAAI project over at IT-eye.
Part of the idea of the WAAI project is to spread the knowledge inside the company so we all know about he nice upcoming things of the Oracle Fusion 11g stack.
One of my colleagues started with the Oracle BPM presentation and workshop. Some nice info and good exercises to get in touch with the new BPM.
After that the playground was mine.
A few hours of hard work and exhausted colleagues trying to complete...
Short reminder for myself
During development of my alsb projects i clone, rename, move and do all sorts of things to eventually end of with one correct list of projects with good naming convention.
Once in a while when i try to rename for example proxy services back to some old name i already used i get errors about the new name already exists, although i'm pretty sure it's not in the console anymore.
For alsb development we both use the console and the workspace studio of bea.
So once in a while i need to do some changes in the console and import the sbconfig.jar back into the ide.
In the current workspace i delete all projects and 'try' to import the sbconfig.jar.
The next error pops up :
Import failed: Validation failed with diagnostic messages. Diagnostics for WSDL /WSDLs/
ERROR: Validation of WSDL /WSDLs/ failed:
At the moment i'm busy with a migration of an alsb 2.6 enviroment to an alsb 3.0 enviroment.
In the alsb processes extra functionality is invoked by making use of the java call outs.
Nothing wrong with this if you ask me, the only thing which i'm wondering is, wont these java call outs mess up the transactional context of alsb processes itself.
At the moment the libraries which are being used are deployed with every servicebus process itself.
So we have/had some sort of default structure...
little note to myself

Last month The Forrester released their evaluation of some of the vendors of enterprise services buses for Q1 of 2009.
It gives a good overview of the core and extended functions of the daily ESBs and the strengths and weaknesses of the vendors (for both the licensed and open source esbs).
Go read it!
I'm currently working on a proof of concept for testing the mule esb for a local goverment.
It's a nice case to become familiar with a new esb since i mostly did my development on the Oracle ESB/ALSB.
Good too see some differences in concepts/techniques and connectivity and what the open source world has to offer for service busses.
Though the mule-source.org gives me some nice documentation/examples, i was still missing a good ide for development (though most can be done with some simple...
