Overview of this book

Oracle SOA Suite 11g is the backbone of messaging and application integration in a service-oriented architecture. An application administrator is responsible for an end-to-end administration and management of the infrastructure. Understanding the underlying components, services, and configuration and their relations to each other is necessary to effectively administer the Oracle SOA Suite 11g environment. Due to its sheer size, administering Oracle SOA Suite 11g is a daunting task.This book provides detailed explanations of all the core administrative and management activities around Oracle SOA Suite. It includes compact information for end-to-end administration of Oracle SOA Suite 11g. It delves into advanced topics such as silent installs, cloning, backup and recovery and high availability installations.Using this book, you will be able to administer and secure your Oracle SOA Suite services and applications. You will follow examples that you can use in your everyday life as a SOA Suite administrator. The book begins with managing composite applications, their deployments and lifecycles and then moves on to monitoring instances, service engines, Weblogic Server and composite applications. With a detailed coverage of topics like the administration of individual service components as well as configuring MBeans using both Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control and WLST-based scripts, you will be equipped to work with any services and applications.Towards the end, you will be taken through identifying faults & exceptions, troubleshooting approaches, and securing various components.

Tuning the SOA Infrastructure

After the underlying Oracle WebLogic Server has been tuned for performance, the SOA infrastructure becomes the next area to optimize where different service engines, audit store configuration, persistence settings, and threads can be optimized. In this section, you will learn how to tune the following:

  • SOA Infrastructure properties to lower audit levels and disable payload validation.

  • Service Engine threads for BPEL and BPMN engines.

  • Mediator Service Engine threads for parallel processing, re-sequencing concurrency, and sleep intervals.

  • JCA Adapter properties for threads, transactions, streaming, batching, and timeouts.

Since all the tuning covered here is done by overriding the default server MBeans, this chapter also includes a few WLST scripts that updates them. The scripts are general purpose, and understanding how to execute them will allow you to modify any server level MBeans.
