The article in Oracle Magazine:
The latest release of SOA Suite and BPA Suite 10.1.3.4 has been released for a while now, so you’re probably wondering, what’s in it for us …
Well let’s have a look at the new features in Oracle Bpel Process Manager 10.1.3.4:
Those are big improvements for as well developers, as administrators and especially for troubleshooting.
You’ve read about the ADF Methodology Group that was founded for the masses and the group is still growing and the topics are evolving.
More information regarding the ADF Methodology can be found on the Oracle wiki page.
Today I’ve added some content regarding a definition on ADF Taskflows, BPM, UML, BPEL, etc. and especially for which purpose these technologies can be used.
On the wiki-page you will find more information regarding when and why I would use these kinds of methodologies and the benefits or drawbacks I find when using them.
Feel free to add comment, add suggestions, add your own approach, etc. Looking forward for new ideas!
That said aside, our Google group is also worth reading in the meantime, you can check it out here.
In the ODI CAB Meeting held during Open World we’ve heard a lot of new insights regarding ODI Suite and several cases.
To sum up the main differentiators of ODI when talking about a Data Integration Strategy:
ODI will be incorporated throughout the entire Oracle Stack to enable pervasive data integration. Pre-packaged data-integration for Apps (Peoplesoft, Siebel, SAP) so all ETL-flows are performed by ODI. Tips & Tricks when using ODI for your enterprise-wide data integration: For information regarding ODI you can download our presentation were we’ve compared OWB, ODI and ODI Suite: The Next Generation of Business Integration: Making the right choice!

I went to the presentation of Lonneke and Ronald regarding AquaLogic vs. Oracle, which was a really great presentation with a good overview and an objective comparison of both environments.
This mix session was 1 of the winning sessions for Oracle Open World and it’s a hot topic nowadays of course.
What were the tools that were compared:
One of the first tips Lonneke has discussed was how to govern such a SOA Project using waterfall approach or not. She mentioned that bottom-up and top-down should be combined instead of sticking with one of both methodologies because when choosing one you would either have a load of services that weren’t used, or a combined service with not enough granularity.
You need to think about an Enterprise Model, once you’ve defined that model, the high level architecture, you can start going into the business processes itself and the description of all the artefacts.
Trying to rush your business process analysis without a firm understanding of the enterprise model will spare you a lot of rework and of course a firm approach for as well the business as it department.
The comparison which was made by them, is put in their presentation slides, which will be made available by Oracle.
The main points I’ve written down (which maybe aren’t all documented in the presentation).
I would really like to thank Ronald and Lonneke for the great presentation and the different demo’s they provided during the session. I’m sure this session was of great value for many customers struggling with the very hot topic right now: what to choose ;o)
One of the sessions I’ve attended at Open World in regards of a customer case we’re working on, was regarding Siebel and Webcenter integration.
The presentation was to high-level which wasn’t that interesting after all, but I learned more about the packaging strategies for Webcenter.
Of course I got a bit more information regarding the release date of Webcenter … and to make sure you read this post fully, I will put it at the very end ;o))
The most important news given during this session: A Migration Path will be foreseen when moving from OC4J into Weblogic Server Well let’s see what happens early next year.
