Short overview of some last week failing builds at our site ;)
Since a while ago it's possible to register proxy repositories in Nexus based on the Oracle Maven Repository.
To be able to proxy this repository you need to make use of an oracle account for the autenthication before you can download the artifact.
Let's check the logging to understand what it does (i can rephrase the logfile or just copy/paste it ;), when others google for it it will find the hit much easier)
In our middleware solutions (Oracle SOA Suite) we use a lot of xsl transformations.
Part of these transformations use database backend systems to do lookups for transforming internal values to external values (which can then be communicated to the customers).
In the Oracle SOA Suite you can create custom xsl function and store the jar in the domain/lib folder and then you will be able to use it in the xsl transformations.
We use Altova XMLSpy a lot for creating all these xsl...

Oracle SOA Suite Developer's Guide

Over at IT-eye we did quiet some soa implementations with the Oracle stack, so i already had good background on the information discussed in the book.
What i particularly was interested in was the best practices of...
Last i finished the last day of the 3day Oracle Fusion 11g workshop.
And i must say...i'm pretty impressed by the new stack Oracle presented.
For development during the workshop i used my own vmware of fusion 11g on Centos.
And it's a real killer when all components of the suite are up and running, my laptop had a tuff time.
During the workshop we used the famous 'Order processing' tutorial to get in touch with the components of the fusion 11g.
A short overview of what we have been...
The Open Group has released their SOA Source Book.
The introduction tells us "The Open Group's SOA Source Book is a collection of source material for use by enterprise architects working with Service-Oriented Architecture. The material reflects input from a large number of people from a wide range of Open Group member companies, including product vendors, consultancies, and users of SOA.
