Not everybody is starting up JDeveloper first thing in the morning in order to work with Oracle SOA Suite. Let’s face it: Instead of being an SOA expert, any given IT specialist is more likely a certified DB admin, a Java developer or somebody who was just told by his manager to take care of that Oracle Service Bus installation. In case you are one of them and looking into SOA and the related Oracle products this posting is written for you.
Technology and Oracle
The following two recipes provide firstly a no-nonsense explanation of Service Oriented Architecture (the first part is not related to Oracle at all !) and secondly an overview of Oracle’s Fusion Middleware (OFM) product stack.
The description is deliberately easy to read and I intentionally didn’t reuse any fancy marketing slides since they are often too generic and contain too many buzzwords.
For everybody trying to get started and reading a 101, here is the link to download SOA and Oracle Fusion Middleware for busy IT professionals (PDF).
PS. Actually these two recipes are taken out of my book Oracle WebLogic Server 12c – Distinctive Recipes.
