OSB 11g training courses are available as of Jan 2011.
This course starts off with a pattern based explanation of service oriented architecture (SOA) from a system architecture perspective. It is shown how the current version of Oracle Service Bus (OSB) fits into this concept and what connections to Business Process Modelling (BPM), Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) and registries / repositories exist. Important product features are described in the examination of the Service Bus pattern.
Installation and the creation of Service Bus domains will be taught. Operational and development aspects are illustrated: creating and testing proxy- and business services, message flows, pipelines, actions with error handling and the propagation of these resources to a production environment.
Attendees learn how service bus can help for maintaining security and why service bus – as a core infrastructure component for SOA – is a good location to monitor services with Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and alerts.
The last part of the course covers subjects such as high availability and load balancing from the client to the service bus and also from the service bus to a clustered implementation of services.
Half of this course is structured around presentations and discussions. The second half consists of hands-on exercises. All participants receive printed copies of the presentations and the lab guide, as well as a CD with all lab applications and an online version of course material.
Participants will gain a deep understanding of the architecture, development and operation of Oracle Service Bus. Having attended this course, participants will be able to setup Oracle Service Bus in a clustered environment and create business services and proxy services including message flows with pipelines, stages and actions. Additionally participants will know how to effectively use the security and monitoring features of Oracle Service Bus.
